Midnight Tease

Midnight Tease - Giphy

 

Hello my loves! My amazing bookworms!

I hope everybody had a great Halloween. It is the best time of year. Even better than, dare I say it, Christmas. I KNOW!! You disagree probably, but I’m a Halloween baby. You keep your Christmas. I’ll dance around to the theme from Halloween. I know this year I dressed up as Void Stiles from Teen Wolf. It was a lot of fun. My boss at work was very worried and kept asking why I was angry though. I just smiled.

Anyway! It’s that time. The midnight hour has struck and I have the Midnight Tease, because who needs sleep? Not me! Actually, I probably do need sleep, but I love you and so I’ve brought this monthly update to you.

For those of you who have just recently joined me here, on The Scarlet Reader, this is the time when I show you what I’m reading, what I’ll soon be reading and what’s up for review this month. I love to keep everyone updated with what is on my current queue (which is on the back of my couch).

So without further ado…

Icons-Idols

Icons/Idols
Author: Margaret Stohl

This one kind of piqued my curiosity because the author also worked on Beautiful Creatures, which I enjoyed.

 

F-D-JH

Frankenstein/Dracula/Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Author: Mary Shelley/Bram Stoker/Robert Louis Stevenson

Ahhhh, a collection of classic horror novels. It’s like opening a Dr. Pepper. Completely delightful and thirst quenching. I got this collection last year, needing to have all three and it also comes with an introduction by Stephen King (a bonus!).

 

Nancy Drew

Nancy Drew: Ghost Stories #2
Author: Carolyn Keene

I discovered this one on my college campus actually and was kind of excited. I enjoy Nancy Drew every once in a while and ghost stories are always fun.

 

Hidden Oracle-Dark Prophecy

The Hidden Oracle & The Dark Prophecy
Author: Rick Riordan

I read the Percy Jackson series and really loved the cameo Apollo had, so I’m really looking forward to reading these. Plus I got Dark Prophecy for free because the pages were damaged, which helped me decide to get it. (Score!) I’m glad I can get these read before the next one come out which is May 1, 2018.

The Alien Next Door (LUX: Beginnings – A Book Review)

LUX
Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published: 2014 (The 2-in-1 version I read anyway)

Lux Cover

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

 

Katy Swartz moves to a new town with her mother for a fresh start after the passing of her father. Cue the boy next door, Daemon, who I picture being portrayed by Cody Christian (Pretty Little Liars, Teen Wolf), and this boy is out of this world, literally. He isn’t from around here or even this galaxy. I’m not one who reads Sci-Fi very often, but I took my chances with this and didn’t regret it. I picked it up and didn’t set it down until I was finished with the bonus content at thee very end.

There’s the usual teenage drama of who likes whom and then some, and I can’t lie, I love my dosage of back and forth witty banter and it’s there page for page. Tensions run high and it’s dangerously delicious, and the slew of pop culture references to TV is beautifully placed without feeling forced. I’m a sucker for a good Buffy reference and The Labyrinth definitely got me to smirk and shudder (I think the puppet people are creepy too).

LUX

There were a couple times I was holding my breath and my toes curled. This is a great read and I’m definitely on my way to finishing the series. I truly believe this series could skyrocket as a show on the CW, and I hope that one day it does so I can watch it.

I know this is brief, but I’m JUST starting the next one and am rambling quite a bit.

More to come soon…
