  1. I've been really interested in that Coming Clean book - I'm a little fascinated by hoarding and think I would love it. Can't wait to see what you think!

    1. It was really, really good. It was almost hard to read certain parts. It made me so uncomfortable and almost angry! I'm putting together some mini-reviews of a bunch of my recent reads :)

  2. I don't know how I got onto it, but I've been reading up on Oscar Wilde on Wikipedia the past few days, so I'm anxious to know what you think of the book you're currently reading!

    The book about Oscar Wilde looks interesting, and I have to read something more by Atwood; I read Cat's eye time ago and I liked it.

    1. I'm STILL waiting for the first book in that Atwood series to come in at the library. I'm not a patient person ;)

  5. Oooo the Oscar Wilde's wife book looks interesting. He seemed like a weird guy, so I can only imagine how her story must go.

    That GIF is too fun. You stop that. :-)

  9. I'm going old school for my Halloween read too, but only into the 1940s. You're into the classics. A coworker said she's reading Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which I've read, but it's been a while so maybe I'll tackle that too.

  10. Margaret Atwood's work is definitely something I am interested in exploring, since having read The Handmaid's Tale! Hope you enjoy your reading

  11. I don't know why, but I find that gif at the end super creepy!!

    I have never read Jekyll and Hyde. Did you enjoy it? I can't decide if I should try to fit that in or Sleepy Hollow by Halloween...

    1. It IS super creepy! Muahahahaha ;)

      I really did enjoy Jekyll and Hyde! It was short and spooky, exactly what I was looking for. I'd really like to read Sleepy Hollow as well!

  12. I enjoyed the first two in the Margaret Atwood series, but I haven't gotten the third yet. :) They are kind of sci-fi dystopian, pretty different from most things I read, but I still really liked them. My husband did too. :) Have a great week!

    1. They are really different for me too! I really want to get going on them but the library hold isn't coming in and wahhhh!

  13. Hope you enjoy the Atwood! Reading books of the same author one after the other is one of those things often lost as a blogger.
