October Update

Hello My Fellow Readers, I know I don't post as much as I should. Or anything besides reviews. I'm not sure what else to post on here. If you have any ideas please let me know!! My laptop crashed on me in May. So I haven't been able to make videos on YouTube anymore. So this will be strictly written reviews, book hauls and things of that nature.

In the summertime I had my rounds of reading like crazy and the dreaded reading funks. As it is now my favorite time of year Fall. I might be do more reading. But family and life in general and my obsession with my TV shows, which are back on. Tend to get in the way of my reading. The shows I'm currently watching are: CSI, The Big Bang Theory and Ghost Adventures. Of course I do watch The Bold and The Beautiful everyday (yes I love soap operas!!)....

With it being October and Halloween is this month!! I will be trying to read more seasonal books this month. What books do you love to read around this time of year? If you have any recommendations, please don't hesitate to say so.

The new little addition to the household, her name is Sofia. Her and my other cat Fiona are slowly making friends. As well as Sofia and the dog, Sadie. 

Happy Reading, Ashley

But there's something odd about Jay's new town. Why does everyone have lawn gnomes in front of their homes? And why is everyone afraid to go outside at night?

My Thoughts:
 R.L. Stine has a way of making the simplest of objects terrifying. In Planet Of The Lawn Gnomes, we meet Jay. He and his family move to this strange neighborhood, where everyone has a lawn gnome in their yards. Jay quickly realizes something is strange about these lawn gnomes. He doesn’t have a clue of how right he is.

R.L.Stine keeps you guessing until the very end. I still find myself wondering if Jay is who he believes he is or if he’s something else. And did he really live where he thought?

By the way I’m never going to look at a lawn gnome the same way ever again!! 

5/5 creepily stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
