Happy Halloween week!!  This week I'm thinking about These Shallow Graves, Underneath Everything, and Placebo Junkies.  What books do you have/want??  Are you reading anything scary in honor of the holiday?

  1. What We Left Behind is one I would love to read. Underneath Everything looks good too.

  2. These Shallow Graves looks perfect for Halloween! Really want to read What We Left Behind and The Secret Diamond Sisters :)

    Tasya // The Literary Huntress

    1. It does look perfect for Halloween! What We Left Behind sound super interesting. It could definitely be something new and different!

  3. Michelle, I just read UNDERNEATH EVERYTHING and it had a similar vibe to DANGEROUS GIRLS (where there's a kinda toxic girl friendship aspect) and I LOVED it. UNDERNEATH EVERYTHING is so beautifully written - it's a little slow but holy cow is it twisted. I hope you get to read it soon and we can both review it on our blogs :-)

    1. Ahhh I love that!! I had no idea that it was twisted! DGs is one of my fav. twisty books ever, so I can't WAIT to read Underneath Everything! And definitely yes, review it on our blogs :)

  4. I've seen so many people rave about What We Left Behind but it completely flew under my radar! I'm definitely adding that to my " buy-now " list! I am so excited for These Shallow Graves and Placebo Junkies! This is so random, but I see that you're reading Romancing In The Dark In The City of Light, and also noticed that you mentioned the main character was harsh. GIRL, I could NOT stand Summer lol. She was so horrible, but that's a conversation for another time lol!

    1. Hahaha, glad to know I'm not the only one!! I definitely don't know how to take Summer. She starts off so unlikable and I don't see it getting any better. I need to understand why a character is like that if they're going to be so harsh and odd.

  5. I am pretty much backing off the new releases until Winter. Because I am going to RIP into that one when it finally comes out.

    1. I can't wait for Winter either!!! So exciting!!
