Spellbook of the Lost and Found

By: Moïra Fowley-Doyle

Something strange is happening Olive and Rose are losing things- small things at first. Bracelets. Jackets. But it’s beginning to escalate into bigger things. And when Olive meets a group of strange kids living in an abandoned house outside of town who have the same problem they cast a spell to have those things returned.

But just as strange random things are found.

And of course secrets…

Shadow and Bone Casting News!

Shadow and Bone

So we have some casting news about the Shadow and Bone/Six of Crows series coming to Netflix and it looks really good. But it does lead to probably my biggest personal hang- up in YA fantasy casting adaptations.

Since I suck at doing TBR’s I thought I’d call this my Spooky Book Reading Options for the month of October and maybe throw some ideas out there if any of you are looking for some Halloween reads.

Harley Quinn Gets Her Own Movie

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

The Harley Quinn movie trailer is here (also known as Birds of Prey) and while it looks fun I’m also once again glad it’s not Gotham City Sirens.

In fact I’m not sure I want to see Ivy while Margot Robbie is calling the shots and I say that as a huge fan of Harley Quinn.

September Ends at Last

Pennywise

September is finally ending.

Generally speaking it’s always been one of my least favorite months. Miserable heat while everyone else gets to start Fall (so it seems) and always without fail endless sinus infections and migraines that make a meeting with Pennywise look like a pleasant alternative.

Yeah, I am obviously ready for October.

The Girl the Sea Gave Back

By: Adrienne Young

Boy you’d think surviving being cast out to sea as a child would be the most dramatic thing in a girl’s life wouldn’t you?

Not poor Tova who is found and brought up by a distrustful clan of warriors who only want to use her for her ability to cast the stones and see the future when she does this for one particular idiot things only go to hell all the faster.

But at least she gets a great book cover.

Puddin’ Left Me Torn

Puddin'

Puddin’

By: Julie Murphy

I have been sitting on a Puddin’ review for a month (which I have never waited so long on anything involving actual pudding ever) and despite multiple tries I’ve never felt like it was right.

And I don’t know why because there is a lot to say about this sequel to Dumplin. It wasn’t like finishing a book and thinking yeah, that happened but I have nothing to say about it. I had feelings about Puddin’.

The Emmy’s Actually Didn’t Annoy Me!

Jodie Comer as Villanelle

The Emmy’s were last night and I must admit for a show I wasn’t even going to watch as I thought they’d just give everything to Thrones and Veep I’m a little surprised by how happy I was with the winners!!

I Finally Did John Wick!

keanu reeves as john wick

Well, the movie trilogy naturally but a girl can dream right?

So I put these movies off for the longest time mainly because of the dog in the first movie that freaking Theon Greyjoy kills starting off this whole thing. It never really struck me that I could skip that part. Sometimes I don’t really think these things through.
