I put this book on my library’s recommend list where it has languished for almost a year. So, rather than wait, I found it in a used bookstore and bought it. I love the cover of this book. It’s so pretty.

I have such mixed feelings about this book. It’s creepy and scary and perfect to read during the month of October. But. It’s not perfect. I won’t say what it is that is so bothersome. And I will encourage everyone who loves a good vampire story to read this book!

But.

This has been on my TBR for a while now. I want to read since it seems to be about a fictional serial killer story. And do love a serial killer story, both fiction and nonfiction.

I’ve had this book on my wish list for a long while. But I have to say I’ve been a bit nervous to read it. What if I discover that I’m a sociopath? Anyway. I bought this book at Barnes and Noble on sale. And have wanted to buy it because I have a murder mystery floating in my brain and this book might be helpful if I ever get around to writing it.

This book is everything to my 8, 9, and 10 year old self. It was one of the few books in my elementary school library that I read over and over and over again. So you can imagine how excited I was when I found it in the Quarterly Box. For one moment I was 10 years old again. Sigh. And I had my own copy of my favorite book. I am looking forward to re-reading it again, so I think I’ll add it to my reading list for Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon in October. Click here for more information about the readathon.

Do you have a favorite book that you read as a 10 year old? What is it? Have you read this book? What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments below. And be sure to include a link to your Friday 56 blog post.

Happy Reading!

My Friday 56 posts this month again have a theme. It’s such a random theme that I’ll tell what it is rather than make readers guess. All the books featured this month are books that I purchased in August. This book like last week’s book (click here to see last weeks contribution) came in a Quarterly Book Box (click here for the unboxing.)

I’ve a number of Ann Patchett novels in my TBR pile. I need to move them all to the top, I think. Have you read this or any of Ann Patchett’s novels? If so what did you think? Let me know in the comments below. And don’t forget to leave a link to your Friday 56 post.

Happy Reading!
