It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

It’s been a while. My husband and I visited the coast of Maine on vacation about a month ago and had a wonderful time. It was beautiful! The highlight of our trip was probably the biplane ride we took over Mount Desert Island/Acadia National Park. That was amazing! After that, my in-laws visited for a long weekend and then I came down with a cold that left me lazy and wanting only to curl up, nap, drink tea, and read books. I think I’ve finally kicked that to the curb (knock on wood), so here I am!




I’ve been reading lots of October-y reads for RIP X. Here are the highlights.

Rome, 1960: The Olympics that Changed the World by David Maraniss

The Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett

Those Across the River by Christopher Buehlman

Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay

Summer Knight by Jim Butcher, read by James Marsters

Cabal by Clive Barker

The Empty House and Other Stories by Algernon Blackwood, read by Brian Holsopple

He is Legend: An Anthology Celebrating Richard Matheson, edited by Christopher Conlon

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

Currently Reading:

In the Woods by Tana French

The Incorrible Children of Ashton Place: The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood, read by Katherine Kellgren

Educating Alice: Adventures of a Curious Woman by Alice Steinbach

Up Next:

I need a spooky audio book to finish out the month. Any suggestions? My library’s selection is fairly limited. I have put a hold on Secondhand Souls by Christopher Moore. I don’t think it will come in before Halloween though. Oh well. Christopher Moore is a good read at any time of year.

What are you reading this week?

I have an affiliate relationship with Malaprop’s, my local independent bookstore located in beautiful downtown Asheville, NC; and Better World Books. I will receive a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase books through links on my site. My opinions are completely my own.

Other Posts You May Enjoy:


  1. So many books! I love Jim Butcher and Harry Dresden. 🙂 My copy of Secondhand Souls just came in – yay! I didn't think it would. Maybe you will get yours too.

    I enjoyed Those Across the River – it kind of freaked me out. I really want to read The Country of Pointed Firs.

    Your trip sounds super fun! We went to Maine when I was a kid in high school and I have always wanted to go back as an adult. Maybe one day!

    Hope you are feeling better!

  2. I like how you read different types of books. I added Jim Butcher to my TBR. Your Maine trip sounds lovely. I want to go there and eat fresh seafood. Sorry you were sick earlier. Flu is making its rounds. I need to get me and my girls innoculated.

  3. I picked up It because it's October and I wanted something terrifying for the Halloween season. So that's my read for this week. I feel like I'm a rare book blogger who almost never manages even one book a week! I'm awful!

  4. Looks like you had a good week even though I don't know any of these books. 🙂

    I love your ghosts.

  5. What a great get-away! I'm glad you're feeling better, and you have some tempting books waiting for you.

    I have In the Woods on my Kindle, which I want to read soon! Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  6. I always end up with a cold after vacation and company. Hope you are feeling better. It does sound like you've been having some adventures.

  7. I'm glad you are feeling better!

    I have only listened to a few audiobooks so far, so I don't have any recommendations for you. But I will be interested to see what you end up getting!

  8. That flight sounds like it would be amazing. While I am not that fond of planes I do enjoy looking out the window and seeing the sights below. Hope you finish out your spooky reading month with enjoyable reads. Like you spooks there on the side of your blog!

  9. October-y reads are always good. I haven't read anything scary, oddly enough. My reading has slowed down a bit, been watching too much Netflix! I have been thinking of trying Tana French, heard good things and there was one I was interested in.

    Maine sounds like a fun trip! Have a nice week.

  10. Sounds like a fun vacation though I'd be terrified of going up in a biplane! Glad you are feeling better too.

    I just finished reading This House is Haunted by John Boyne. I read the print version though it is also available on audio. I haven't listened to any spooky audio books so I can't make specific recommendations. If you like YA fiction, maybe The Diviners by Libba Bray. I thought that was pretty creepy and I've heard the audio version is good.

I love to hear from you! Please contact me (menu bar, above) if you're having trouble commenting.
