Bridget Thomas  CR: The Green Mile - Stephen King Stephen King fan ๐Ÿ‘‘ ๐Ÿ™Œ #constantreader ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“š

Back to work today ๐Ÿ˜ญ I guess all good things must come to an end right?
Day 19 of #aprilinbooks18: Latest Bookish Mail. This is my most recent book purchase. I was so excited to finally get a copy of this! I was in a few different bidding wars on eBay for one and finally won this one at a really good deal ๐Ÿ˜€. All I need now is Cycle of the Werewolf and I believe my King collection will be complete! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Speaking of King, how cute is this button from @nightowldesigns ๐Ÿ˜. Go check them out! ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น

Today is the last day of my mini vacation ๐Ÿ˜ญ. I've greatly enjoyed not having anything to do for 4 days ๐Ÿ™Œ. I did have to get up early this morning to go get our passports. But that's ok, because that made me really excited for my long vacation coming up in 2 months! Can't wait!
Day 18 of #aprilbookishmadness: Purple Cover ๐Ÿ’œ.
This cover is kind of purple right? I read this book years ago but it stuck with me. It's just one of those stories that do that. It's a pretty emotional read. I enjoyed it. What did you all think of it? ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น

*Repost*
This is one of my favorite pics I've ever taken. The original pic shows more, but me reposting it, cut it down some. It's from about a year ago with these beautiful flowers in my backyard that only grow in February. They are dead by March. Then the bush starts growing this strange looking fruit thing that only lasts for another short period of time. It's really weird. I have no idea what kind of bush it is, but I just love these flowers ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ ๐Ÿ’ฎ
#beastlybooksapril18: Munch: A book that terrified you. The Winter People is a book I talk about often. It genuinely scared me in parts. So atmospheric and creepy. I can't recommend it enough! ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น

These are some older books that I have only just read within the last year. I enjoyed them all, with Rosemary's Baby being a stand out and becoming one of my favorite books of all time ๐Ÿ™Œ. These are all such well known books and definite must reads for any horror fan.

Rosemary's Baby โญโญโญโญโญ
The Exorcist โญโญโญโญ
Jaws โญโญโญ๐ŸŒ 
The Omen โญโญโญ

Well this has been one lazy Sunday for me. We had some bad weather come through, so I didn't want to leave the house. I've pretty much been on my couch all day, and I think that's where I'll stay the rest of the evening as well. I'll probably do some reading and then tune into the Academy of Country Music Awards.

It's that time! I've been throwing around the idea of hosting a 90's themed challenge for May for a while now, and I've decided to go for it! I'm such a big fan of the 90's. I was born in 1984 so I pretty much grew up during that time. I decided to stick with a music theme as the 90's was such a great time in music ๐Ÿ™Œ. So if you are a fan of the 90's, if you love any of these songs listed, or if you don't know any of these songs and would like to be introduced to them, join in! I would love to have you! I'm a little nervous about hosting as I know it's going to be a lot of work, and I may not get many participants, but that's ok! I'm ready! Even if only one person joins me, we will have a great time!

I will do my best to interact with you all and comment on every pic posted. That's what a good host does right? And I'm ALL IN! So be sure to use the hashtag #totally90sbookchallenge so I can see your pics! Feel free to tag me in them as well! You ready? Let's do this! ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น

Happy Saturday! I have to work today, but it's ok because after today I'm off for 4 days! ๐Ÿ™Œ I needed to take a little time to rest and relax. Plus my vacation days are about maxed out so I had to use some or quit earning them, and who wants that?
#aprilbookishmadness: Coffee Time โ˜•. I've become rather addicted to coffee lately. I've always liked it, but lately, I NEED it. And I keep it simple. Just plain coffee and french vanilla creamer. No sugar or special flavored coffee needed. And multiple cups please!

Here is my little Jack Ketchum collection. I've only read The Girl Next Door so far (and yikes ๐Ÿ˜จ, it's a tough one). But I'm looking forward to these others. Plus that mug from @the.nocturnal.readers.box is just awesome! ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น

How do you all feel about really hyped up books? Does it make you want to run out and grab them right away, or does it kind of put you off wanting to read it? I tend to eventually pick them up, but most times I wait for the hype to die down before diving into them. Case in point, Room by Emma Donoghue. I bought this one back when it was showing up all over the place, but as of this point in time, I still haven't read it nor have I seen the movie.

Looking for a good scare? Lots of blood and gore? Extremely well written? Definitely check out KIN by @kealanpatrick, which unless you've been hiding under a rock lately, you probably already have. But if not, do it now! You won't be disappointed.
#beastlybooksapril18: Rubens: Massacre. This book is definitely a full on massacre. And how adorable are these murderous little Funko Pops? The cutest little killers you ever did see ๐Ÿ˜. ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น

Happy Wednesday!
#aprilbookishmadness: Title starts with M. Have any of you read anything by this author? I've only read one of hers so far, The Weight of Silence, and it was really good! I've got a few others of hers, including this one, on my TBR shelves. She's also on Instagram, so you should go check her out! @heathergudenkauf ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น

Quick review!

I finished The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin tonight. It was a quick little read. I was kind of torn between 3 and 4 stars, so 3.5 โญโญโญ๐ŸŒ  it is ๐Ÿ˜€. It definitely wasn't on the level of Rosemary's Baby (which is one of my favorite books of all time), but I liked it. It's been so long since I saw the movie that I had kind of forgotten most of it, which was probably for the best. It was a little slow getting to the climax, which is weird to say for such a short book, but I wouldn't necessarily say it drug anything out too long or got boring. It kept me interested, and the ending was a bit of a surprise. Levin has a very easy to read writing style, which sometimes gets really simplistic and almost amateurish, but at the same time, there's enough there to grab ahold of you. It was definitely worth the 2 short sittings it took me to read it. ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น
