Welcome to my weekly update for October 25, 2020!
First of all, my apologies for not visiting your blogs much last week. Thank you to everyone who stopped by here though! My husband’s work contract in Portland ended yesterday so we’ve been nailing down his next job and finding our next campground (we live in our RV while he’s working). Not to mention that our tenants in our house back home moved out and our property managers seemed to have a million questions as they were getting the house ready for the next tenant. It’s been a stressful whirlwind! Yet somehow I managed to read quite a bit.
Portland’s first cold snap of the season is this weekend so we’re happy to be moving on soon. It’s definitely possible to live in cold weather in your RV but it’s not something we’re interested in doing ourselves. I’m a wimp about cold weather! We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here though. Oregon is gorgeous and it should be on your bucket list for post-COVID travel!
Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore–3 Stars
Chapelwood by Cherie Priest
Toil & Trouble: 15 Tales of Women & Witchcraft, edited by Jessica Spotswood & Tess Sharpe, read by Amy McFadden
Gil’s All Fright Diner by A. Lee Martinez
Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix
Feed by Mira Grant, read by Paula Christensen and Jesse Bernstein–I actually DNF’d this audiobook because I personally didn’t care for Ms. Christensen’s narration. I’ll try again in print in the future.
Small Spaces by Katherine Arden
The Last Astronaut by David Wellington, read by Megan Tusing
Hole in the Sky by William Kittredge
Muppets Now on Disney Plus–We’ve only watched one episode of this and that was a month or so ago but it was fun to see the Muppets gang interacting with stars like Taye Diggs, RuPaul, Linda Cardellini, and Carlina Will. We really laughed at Kermit’s photobomber career (Pronounced fuh-TAH-buh-mer). We’ll spend more time with it when we wrap up some of our other shows.
I might squeeze in one more Halloween-ish book this week. I haven’t read any Stephen King or Joe Hill this month and they’re usually my October mainstays. Do any of you have any recommendations for one of their shorter books?
This week on the blog is apparently Grady Hendrix week. I’ve somewhat unintentionally read three of his novels since the pandemic started. I already have two reviews scheduled and hope to add one more to the mix.
What did your week look like?
