The cough is lingering still but I am feeling better. It’s getting colder here and I don’t like it I want my summer weather back!! I am not a fan of anything below 60 degrees and it was only in the 50’s today and rainy…blah. I wish I could move somewhere warm…anyone in a warm climate want to adopt me….lol.

Happy Halloween!!!

Still dipping into graphic novels to see what I think. Though Blue Hand Mojo looks a lot different that normal graphic

Audiobooks for Review:


  • The Second Super – first superhero turns villian so second super has to save the day. 🙂

  • Styx -crime novel about a serial killer called The Stuffer.

  • The Finisher was just $2.00 so I couldn’t help but grab it up. 🙂

  1. agh I missed your review of TEN. Just read it… I agree it was suspenseful but not that scary. Kinda fun tho.

    Fangs for the Memories looks like fun… 🙂

  2. I hope you are all better soon, Stormi. With the approaching cooler weather it seems like lots of nasty stuff is starting to go around. I hear ya about the chilly weather. I’m missing my morning dips in the pool!
    So many great books here today. Funny how we each got something different out of Monsterland.

    • Stormi

      Me too, it’s hard to talk on the phone to customers and be hacking…lol. Thank God for the mute button! 🙂 Yeah, just not a fan of being cold…lol.

    • Stormi

      I have the first two books in the series, I just need to read them…lol. I guess this is a good reason to get started on them. 🙂

  3. I have your review of Ten saved and will hopefully get to it tomorrow. I live in a somewhat warmer climate than you do so our cold is 50ish/60ish which I’m okay with. It’s cold enough to wear a light sweater and pretty scarf with boots but not so cold I feel like I’m freezing to death. We do get a few days like that but I refuse to leave the house. Glad to hear you’re feeling better and hope the remains of the cough disappear soon. I hate that lingering cough! Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      If it just stayed around 50/60ish I might be okay with that but we dip down in the single digits some times and I am not a fan of that…lol.

  4. I’m so with you in the cold weather! I’d adopt you but you’d have to sleep in the living room and it still gets cold here… Though better than Missouri for sure! Hope you get to feeling better. I’ve been coughing since September, so I know how annoying it is :/ have a great week:)

  5. Here it isn’t too cold yet, I am not a fan of the cold either, but as long as I can stay indoors I don’t mind too much. You definitely read a lot this week, oh I should check out your review of Dark Heart of magic, curious to hear if you enjoyed it. Enjoy your new books and have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Yeah, the couldn’t wouldn’t be to bad if I could stay cozy inside but I normally have to leave to go to work so that doesn’t work…lol.

  6. I don’t mind cooler weather, but add rain to it and I agree…blah. And I’ll add blerg. lol I’d adopt you, but we’re only going to get cooler as the months go by. At least here in North Carolina our winter is usually mild and of short duration. 🙂 I’ve been hit or miss with graphic novels from NetGalley and now I can’t even open them! Stupid ACSM files! If you want to try out a variety of graphic novels I suggest signing up with NoiseTrade. I’ve been getting several from there and most have been pretty good. Otherwise I get mine from my library which has a surprisingly diverse selection. Hope that cough moves out ASAP and you have a wonderful week!

    • Stormi

      So far the graphic novels from NG have been loading okay but the one I got from EW on the other hand will not load. 🙁 I have emailed Dark Horse about it in hopes of getting them to send me one I can load…lol. If not oh well, I will check out NoiseTrade and see what it is. 🙂

  7. You have a lot of good books to keep you occupied this winter. I loved Sherry D. Ficklin’s Stolen Empire series. I hope you enjoy Queen of Tomorrow. Feel better soon!

    • Stormi

      Yes, it is. I have a horrible one click problem…lol. I have more books that I will probably ever read!! 🙂

    • Stormi

      Oh that is a bummer about The Finisher but maybe I will like it. It was only a couple bucks for the hardback so at least I am not out much if I don’t…lol.

  8. We have pretty different tastes Stormi but I love seeing what you’ve been reading each week.

    So sorry to hear your cough’s hanging around and hope it gets better soon.

    PS. I’d love to live in a cooler climate!

  9. It’s good to hear your feeling better but a cough can last for weeks. Hopefully it will go away soon. You got a lot of great books! I’m starting the audiobook for The Queen of the Tearling. I’ve heard good things about this so hopefully I will like it. Have a great week Stormi!

  10. What an amazing haul!! I still need to read Queen of the Tearling and Queen of Someday! I hope you love all your new books! And you can come stay with me in Florida! We can fight off the baddies together! 😛
