Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Haunted Houses

In honor of Halloween, I thought it would be fun to do a cover post about haunted houses! I've never been to a legitimate haunted house before (unless you count my parent's house since there's a ghost in the shower). I've also never been to Halloween Horror Nights or any similar event. But I have been to a few of those random, rinky-dink, fog-machine, people-in-costumes, fake-blood kinds. I'm not...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/30/16

So... I've got a few random/awesome/interesting things to share with you all this week! First of all, I don't even understand technology. Remember about a month I told you all that the tap-to-click on my keyboard stopped working? Well... it's working again! Don't ask me how or why because I have no clue. Though I might just turn it off since I got used to clicking without it, and my fingers are...
 

Book Review: Murmuration by TJ Klune

It's 1954, and Mike has a good life in the small town of Amorea---he never has to worry about crime, he runs his own bookstore, he plays poker with his friends in the evenings, and he's very nearly got his own fella, if only he'd gather up the courage to take the next step forward and ask him out already (something the entire town is rooting for). But then strange things start happening to Mike,...

Personal Tag Post: The Halloween Tag

I wanted to do a Halloween-related post every Monday this month, but I decided to go with something not bookish today because I always end up talking about the same books in those types of posts. So this is just about Halloween in general and will maybe give you all a chance to get to know some really random and insignificant things about me since I have included lots of stories from my life...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/23/16

Let's see, what news do I have this week... Well, I voted! (I had a mail-in ballot.) If ever there were an election when every vote counted, I think it'd be this one. If nothing else, my vote will at least cancel out the vote of one person in my family -_- I also made a new cat friend! I don't have my own cats to take cute photos of, but I do have...
