Lauren is doing her own giveaway you should check out, Im doing one as well. I’m giving out a hardcover copy of Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter (details on how to enter below). Read the blurb:
In the enchanted kingdom of Brooklyn, the fashionable people put on cute shoes, go to parties in warehouses, drink on rooftops at sunset, and tell themselves they’ve arrived. A whole lot of Brooklyn is like that now—but not Vassa’s working-class neighborhood.
In Vassa’s neighborhood, where she lives with her stepmother and bickering stepsisters, one might stumble onto magic, but stumbling away again could become an issue. Babs Yagg, the owner of the local convenience store, has a policy of beheading shoplifters—and sometimes innocent shoppers as well. So when Vassa’s stepsister sends her out for light bulbs in the middle of night, she knows it could easily become a suicide mission.
But Vassa has a bit of luck hidden in her pocket, a gift from her dead mother. Erg is a tough-talking wooden doll with sticky fingers, a bottomless stomach, and a ferocious cunning. With Erg’s help, Vassa just might be able to break the witch’s curse and free her Brooklyn neighborhood. But Babs won’t be playing fair…
💀 The giveaway opens today and closes on the October 31st . You can enter anytime between those dates. The winner will be announced on the November 1st.

the challenges & my Tbr
🕸 This is kind of subjective. I’m picking Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. For me those black and white covers are pretty creepy, even if the contents of the book might not be (but then who knows I haven’t read it yet).
🕸 I’m going to finally read the last book in The Raven Cyle series for this challenge, The Raven King. This quartet definitely has some super natural elements going on, even if I haven’t figured out exactly what yet. It’ll be good to finally finish it all and get to the bottom of all the mysteries.
🕸 I just picked up Stalking Jack the Ripper at the Boston Teen Author Festival and I’d like to think it’s a thriller? We’re gonna just go with yes.
🕸 Vengeance Road is on my fall TBR, so I’m probably going to try to kill two birds with one stone here and finally pick it up. Subject to change though depending on my mood and schedule.
🕸 This is TBD for me. I don’t watch horrors or thrillers ever really so I’m not sure. Maybe I’ll give into my boyfriends wishes and go see IT? Either way he’ll probably pick the movie cause no way I’m watching it alone. Any recs from y’all?
🕸 I’m going with treat on this one. I’m going to start Forbidden by Kimberly Little. This is a book I recently got, I’ve heard nothing about it but I feel like I need to start picking up more of the like unmentioned/not super hyped or current books.
🕸 The two I’m going to pick up for this are Fireblood 🔥 and The Great Pursuit. These are both sequels I’m eager to read.
