This post is part of my blogtober celebration, my month-long blog party about all things creepy and Halloween-y! Don't forget I've got a ton of giveaways going on!
Welcome to the second installment of creepy Friday Book Drinks! This is a regular feature I created where I pair cocktails with books I'm reading because, you know, drinks are great! During #blogtober, though, it's been creepy books and their drink counterparts. Today's post comes to you from the point-of-no-return creepy.
This week I finally picked up my ARC of Possess by Gretchen McNeil. I'm only about 50 pages in, but it's pretty good so far. And I'll admit, I've had it on my TBR for an embarrassing length of time. All because I'm TERRIFIED of the cover. It just LOOKS like a truly terrifying book. So I'm not reading it at night.
But, the book started out supremely reminiscent of my Catholic school days, so instead of pairing it with a cocktail, this afternoon when I got home I poured myself a lovely glass of red wine and realized that was the perfect drink for this book. Very Catholic, very church-associated, and this book is all about (so far, anyway) exorcisms.
So what do you think? Does this cover creep you out as much as it does me? Doesn't red wine pair well with October books?
