Thanks for stopping by :-)


  1. I'm beginning to feel the Christmas spirit though we still in a sort of lockdown. At least I am thinking of it which was absent till now.

  2. Omg so many of your books look amazing, from 'The Woman in White' to 'The Lighthouse Witches' to 'Cackle'! Definitely taking some recommendations from this post. 'The Manor' also looks amazing, maybe my housemate will let me use her Prime account to watch it! I hope you have a lovely week ahead :)

  3. Hope you like the Lisa Jewell book. I am still reading thrillers and psych thrillers in particular. can't get enough of them these days. I read other genres too though.

  4. I have The Lighthouse Witches to review. It looks great. I watched The Manor last night. It was a good movie. I hope you have a great week!

  5. I hope you love the Lisa Jewell book...and I hope to enjoy Last Girl Ghosted.

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  6. Happy reading this week, I enjoy Lisa Jewell's books. I keep seeing Cackle around blog-land it sounds good too.

  7. I love that mug. And ooh you have some nice looking reads for October. :)

  8. Hope you are enjoying Woman in White. Wilkie Collins is perfect reading this time of year! I just got Jonathan Franzen's new novel from the library and it's great so far.

  9. I can't even think about Christmas until the middle of November 😂, it's just far too early! Love, love, love the Victober mug

  10. The Lighthouse Witches and Cackle are getting good reviews. I'm not quite ready for Christmas reads yet, even though they are being published now.

  11. LOVE the mug.


    I hope you enjoy both.

  12. This is the first I've heard of Victober. It sounds like a fun event.

    I listened to Women in White earlier in the year. Even though it's an old story, I thought it held up well.

    I'm hearing a lot about Last Girl Ghosted and Cackle. I'll be curious to see what you think of these.

  13. Last Girl Ghosted sounds scary good.

  14. Fun shopping for the festive season. That list of books are all calling to me, it seems. :)

    Have a good week!

  15. I've enjoyed Lisa Jewell in the past. The Manor sounds spooky! Glad to see you enjoyed it. Enjoy your week!

  16. I loved doing Advent calendar when the kids were young.
    Victober sounds fun and the Mug is perfect.
    It looks like you have a fine group of spooky stories this week.
    Happy Reading!

  17. Plenty of spooky season books for you to enjoy

    Wishing you a great reading week

  18. The only time I enjoy shopping is for Christmas. My girls still enjoy advent calendars.

    ?The Lighthouse Witches caught my eye. Hope you enjoy your books.

  19. Victober sounds fun! It's the first time I'm hearing about it.
    Have a great week and happy reading.

  20. I love all the different advent calendars you can get now. I’ve recently seen a beauty products one and a coffee capsule one. I always buy the lego one for my grandkids and the T2 one for me. I’m really looking forward to Christmas this year as we were only allowed 10 people last year.

  21. My mom is currently reading The Night She Disappeared.
