Last Wednesday, we went on a short day trip to visit a friend of mine that lives in Birmingham. We literally shopped all day and of course I had to stop at a couple of bookstores. Both stores had awesome spooky displays and it worked on me. I wasn’t planning to buy anything, but here we are. So let’s do a spooky book haul.
The first store we visited was the Little Professor in Homewood, Alabama. This store was adorable! I didn’t get to browse as much as I wanted. We took the wrong exit and got there about fifteen minutes until closing time. I ran in, saw Cackle on the front display, grabbed it, and jumped in line to check out. It was literally a cover buy, because I didn’t even read the synopsis. And I have to say this was probably one of the friendliest bookstores that I’ve ever been to. I really want to go back and actually have time to browse.
The Death of Jane LAwrence
The next place we stopped was Books-a-Million in Trussville, Alabama. This is always one of my favorites. They’re always well stocked and they have fun displays. And of course, the first one I checked out was their Halloween display and that’s where I found this. The Death of Jane Lawrence was one of my most anticipated fall releases. Like I said in that post I don’t know a lot about it. And I still don’t. But I do know it’s gothic horror and I’ve only seen good reviews. This is one of those books that I don’t want to know a lot about before diving in.
The Haunting of blackwood House
Last year, I ended my Halloween reading by reading a Darcy Coates book. I really enjoyed it so I thought I’d do that again this year. The Haunting of Blackwood House was one I’ve had my eye on for a minute so I thought why not. I’m just hoping I don’t end this Halloween with a broken toe like I did last year. That’s one tradition I’d rather not continue.
So that’s my spooky book haul. I know I probably won’t finish all of these before October ends, but I love spooky books year round. So I’m cool with that.
