Shantall Reads

Okay, so I am going to give it another shot at the read along thing. 

A couple of months ago I had been perusing through Barnes & Nobles for my next read when I saw someone trying to reach a book on a high up shelf and I offered it to help her get it. She accepted and when I saw what book she wanted (I believe it was Six of Crows I can’t quite recall) I told her that she should totally get it because I loved the characters. 

She smiled and suggested that I pick up November 9 because it was one of her favorites. I said cool and added it to my pile. Which was then added to a corner in my room with the rest of my TBR. 

With November almost here I thought ‘hey why not read a book about November’. So here I am, reading November 9th. 

My goal is to do this in only 3 check ins, meaning reading at least 100 pages every ‘reading along thoughts’ post. I am starting today so I will be posting my thoughts on the first 100 pages today. I am coming to this with an open mind as I have head good and bad things about it.

So here we go.

What are you currently reading or binging ?

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. I absolutely love horror movies and Netflix has upped their catalog this year which makes me giddy feeling like Christmas came early. 

My first watch of Netflix Originals this month is Malevolent. If you are planning to watch it be wary that this is NOT spoiler free. 

The movie takes places in 1986 Glasgow and centers around a brother-sister duo who scam people into believing that they can cleanse their homes of spirits that may be haunting them.
