This is Halloween: An Attempt to Bounce Back

October of 2018 was a total dumpster fire. Nevertheless, I am determined to bounce back (dang it!). Just in time for Halloween, yours truly is going to pick up books about villains and/or morally grey characters.

This is Halloween: The Literally Villainous

For my birthday, I received a couple of my favorite new releases. So, naturally, I do have a copy of Vengeful by V.E. Schwab. I am beyond excited to read more about these characters. Schwab is one of my absolute favorites. I am pretty sure reading this book will bring me so much joy.

Furthermore, I would like to dip my toes into the lore of Marissa Meyer works. So, I am hoping to give Heartless a shot this week as well.

This is Halloween: A Little Dark

I remain hesitant to step into the world of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.  While The 5th Wave remains in my currently-reading pile, I may venture into The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken because I am hoping to purchase the DVD of the movie. Both stories center around a dystopia and I know I won’t be able to handle two books from such a taxing genre.

Staying Afloat

Most importantly, I am working on picking myself back up and navigating through the world while managing my mental illnesses. It is tricky but, all I know for now is that I going to try to be okay with how much I read. I am aiming for acceptance and non-judgment. But, as I said, this is still a completely new road for me to walk on.

Hopefully, I will be able to muster the courage to comment on people’s blogs. I do apologize for vanishing. It’s a balancing act, this dance of being connected but not overly exhausted by the negativity of the Internet.

Et Tu?

How was your October? Any plans for Halloween?

    Do what you need to do for you, D. Books are there for you, not the other way around 🙂 (And my top tip is to always log out of social media and close the window/app/tab when you’re done – you can always go back to it later, but you have to consciously want to log on.)

    Happy Halloween Dina! 🙂
