Synopsis: Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.

Every autumn, all through high school, they’ve worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world. (Not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is.) They say good-bye every Halloween, and they’re reunited every September 1.

But this Halloween is different—Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last good-bye.

Josiah’s ready to spend the whole night feeling melancholy about it. Deja isn’t ready to let him. She’s got a plan: What if—instead of moping and the usual slinging lima beans down at the Succotash Hut—they went out with a bang? They could see all the sights! Taste all the snacks! And Josiah could finally talk to that cute girl he’s been mooning over for three years . . .

What if their last shift was an adventure?

Waiting on Wednesday: Gwendy’s Magic Feather By Richard Chizmar and Stephen King

Gwendy's Magic FeatherGwendy’s Magic Feather By Richard Chizmar and Stephen King

Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Fiction
Pages: 333 pages
Release Date: November 19th 2019
Publisher: Cemetery Dance Publications

Plot: Something evil has swept into the small western Maine town of Castle Rock on the heels of the latest winter storm. Sheriff Norris Ridgewick and his team are desperately searching for two missing girls, but time is running out to bring them home alive.

In Washington D.C., thirty-seven-year-old Gwendy Peterson couldn’t be more different from the self-conscious teenaged girl who once spent a summer running up Castle Rock’s Suicide Stairs. That same summer, she was entrusted – or some might say cursed – with the extraordinary button box by Richard Farris, the mysterious stranger in the black suit. The seductive and powerful box offered Gwendy small gifts in exchange for its care and feeding until Farris eventually returned, promising Gwendy she’d never see the box again.

One day, though, the button box shows up without warning – and without Richard Farris to explain why, or what she’s supposed to do with it. The mysterious reappearance of the box, along with the troubling disappearances in Castle Rock, leads Gwendy home again… where she just might be able to help rescue the missing girls and stop a madman before he does something ghastly.

From New York Times bestseller Richard Chizmar comes Gwendy’s Magic Feather, a breathtaking novel that asks whether our lives are controlled by fate or the choices we make – and what price we might have to pay for those choices when we reach for the things we most desire. Prepare to return again to Stephen King’s Castle Rock, the sleepy little town built on a bedrock of deep, dark secrets, which is about to awaken from its quiet slumber once more.

Why I Need This Book: So I read the first book, Gwendy’s Button Box and I ended up really enjoying it. I don’t think at the time I realized they were making this into a series. I’m not sure if they said they were and I don’t remember or that they recently decided to add more to the book. I do really I really liked the first book plus it was such a quick read. So I can’t wait to check this one and get back into that world. I probably will end up reading Gwendy’s Button Box again so I can get a refresher. I’m excited to be back in this world though! Can’t wait!


Have you gotten to read this early? If so what are your thoughts on it? If not, are you guys interested in picking this up? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. I seriously can’t wait for them to come out!

My November TBR

Hey guys! So last month I didn’t end up doing a TBR and I feel I ended up reading a good amount of books. I feel this year I haven’t been following a set TBR which isn’t like me. Since it’s the second to last month of the year I want to try to get in the books I have been putting off. There are so many books I want to read. I do hope I can get to them by the end of the year. So let’s dive in and see what books I hope to read this month. Continue reading “My November TBR”

Waiting on Wednesday: The Toll By Neal Shusterman & The Starless Sea By Erin Morgenstern

The TollThe Toll By Neal Shusterman

Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Pages: 627 pages
Release Date: November 5th 2019
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young

Plot: From New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman comes the thrilling conclusion to the Printz Honor–winning series Arc of a Scythe.

It’s been three years since Rowan and Citra disappeared; since Scythe Goddard came into power; since the Thunderhead closed itself off to everyone but Grayson Tolliver.

In this pulse-pounding conclusion to New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman’s Arc of a Scythe trilogy, constitutions are tested and old friends are brought back from the dead.

Why I Need This Book: The moment I finished Thunderhead I hated that I had to wait for this book. Plus there was no set date so the waiting game began. Fast forward to now and the book will be out in less than a week! I can’t believe that the time is almost here. I can’t wait to see how this book is going to end. I am almost really sad that it’s ending because this has been one of my favorite series to read. I know it’s going to be a crazy ride.


The Starless SeaThe Starless Sea By Erin Morgenstern

Genre: Fiction, Fantasy, Adult
Pages: 498 pages
Release Date: November 5th 2019
Publisher: Doubleday Books

Plot: Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a mysterious book hidden in the stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues–a bee, a key, and a sword–that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to an ancient library, hidden far below the surface of the earth.

What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians–it is a place of lost cities and seas, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. Zachary learns of those who have sacrificed much to protect this realm, relinquishing their sight and their tongues to preserve this archive, and also those who are intent on its destruction.

Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a handsome, barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly-soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose–in both the mysterious book and in his own life.

Why I Need This Book: So it’s been a bit of time since Erin Morgenstern wrote a new book. The moment I heard she had one coming out this year I knew I had to add it to my TBR. I did read The Night Circus a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. So I’m excited for this one. This book seems really interesting and a lot of fun. I don’t know too much about it and I rather go into it not knowing much. I can’t wait to check it out when it comes out.


Have you gotten to read this early? If so what are your thoughts on it? If not, are you guys interested in picking this up? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. I seriously can’t wait for them to come out!

Pages: 287 pages
Published: April 3rd 2018
Publisher: William Morrow
My Rating: 2 out of 5 Stars

Synopsis: Harry Ackerson has always considered his step-mother Alice to be sexy and beautiful, in an “other worldly” way. She has always been kind and attentive, if a little aloof in the last few years.

Days before his college graduation, Alice calls with shocking news. His father is dead and the police think it’s suicide. Devastated, he returns to his father’s home in Maine. There, he and Alice will help one another pick up of the pieces of their lives and uncover what happened to his father.

Shortly after he arrives, Harry meets a mysterious young woman named Grace McGowan. Though she claims to be new to the area, Harry begins to suspect that Grace may not be a complete stranger to his family. But she isn’t the only attractive woman taking an interest in Harry. The sensual Alice is also growing closer, coming on to him in an enticing, clearly sexual way.

Mesmerized by these two women, Harry finds himself falling deeper under their spell. Yet the closer he gets to them, the more isolated he feels, disoriented by a growing fear that both women are hiding dangerous—even deadly—secrets . . . and that neither one is telling the truth.

Books I’d Like to Read By The End of The Year

Hey guys!! So today I would like like to share with you books I’d like to read by the end of the year. I was thinking of including books that haven’t been released but I decided against that.
