QOTD: What books are you hoping to read this month? *let me know in the comments*
Kimberly – Whimsical Narratives
Halloween is only a few weeks away and to get into the spirit I have chosen three books that showcase the paranormal in different ways! We have supernatural powers, a haunting, and vampire which all await me in this month’s TBR! Without further rambling, here is what I am reading this month.
I’ll be starting off the month by reading Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco. Earlier this year, I read her debut novel, Stalking Jack The Ripper, and loved it. I fell in love with not only her writing style but also with her storytelling. I cannot wait to meet back up with our characters, in Romania, as they begin this new mysterious adventure.
Next, I will be beginning a new series that seems to have been on my radar forever and I just never picked it up off my shelf and that is…The Diviners by Libba Bray. The third book in this series was released this past Tuesday, October 3rd, and it jump-started my need to read this book. We are moving on from murder & vampires in Romania, to murder & supernatural powers in 1920s New York City. A book containing flappers, speakeasies, and the supernatural sounds right up my alley! Do you think I’ll need a password to open the book?
Finally, I will be moving on to the haunting tale of A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis. Taking place in two different asylums, we see our main character, Grace Mae, use her powerful mind to help assist at crimes scenes and hunt a murderer. She does this all while dealing with the darkness that lurks in her own past. This book sounds absolutely chilling and I cannot wait to flip thru its pages!
QOTB: What is at the top of your TBR this month?
Can’t wait to read what is on your TBRs as well as fall into the books on my list! Thanks for reading!
