Ninth House is Worth a Pledge

Ninth House

Ninth House

By: Leigh Bardugo

Ninth House was probably my most anticipated book of the year. It’s one of my favorite authors making the jump from YA to Adult. Although I admit I find that line really blurred already especially in Bardugo’s case.

Strong but flawed heroine, ghosts, magic, creepy towns and an ages old murder mystery mixed in with a current murder was right up my alley and perfect for this time of year.

One of these days I’m going to have the appropriate amount of candy for handing out on Halloween. I swear I half want to do some neighborhood census in September. Like do you have kids? Will you be trick-or-treating past my house? Does anybody ever nail the correct amount needed?

I hope everyone had a great Halloween!

Anyway we’re officially in November! Clocks change this weekend and it’s my favorite time of the year. Hoping my mood will improve with the time 🙂

Edited By: Ellen Oh and Elsie Chapman

Grade: A

Ghosts, star-crossed lovers, tragedy, more ghosts, shape-shifters, dances and sisters among other things… A Thousand Beginnings and Endings is an anthology of Asian myths and legends that released at the end of June.

It’s a beautifully written and entertaining collection of stories and if you aren’t familiar with the myths or want to know more about them there’s a page or two of information by the author at the end of each story which I was so grateful to read!
