And so ends my favorite time of year.
The Vanishing by Wendy Webb
This is a horror novel for people who don’t especially like horror. Fun and still spooky. 4/5
Haunted Nights exited by Ellen Datlow
A fantastic collection all about Halloween happenings. 4/5
Pork Pie Hat by Peter Straub
A novella about race and Halloween. The subtext was a little to sub IMHO. 3.5/5
Kill Creek by Scott Thomas
A haunted house story unlike any other out there. Highly recommend 4.5/5
Ghosts by Raina Telgmeier
A YA graphic novel about death, change, and growing up. 5/5
I didn’t get as much spooky reading done as I wanted but I enjoyed what I read. November means it’s time for some nonfiction. I won’t be trying to actively check off the challenges for Nonfiction November but I’ll see what happens since I want to participate
Fear by Bob Woodward
I’m curious to see what happens when a skilled journalist tells the story of this shit show of an administration.
Born Trump by Emily Jane Fox
I need to finish this dammit.
The List by Amy Siskind
A look back at our gradual descent into facism
Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty First Century by Jessica Bruder
This was recommended to me because I enjoyed Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich.
Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J. D. Vance
I’ve been curious about this one for a while.
How many of these will I get to? Probably not too many because I’m tired AF after work most days but we’ll see what happens. I’m planning on doing something for Nonfiction November on my Instagram (JesseJaneReads) so please check it out.
