Throwback Reviews: Killers & Secrets

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!

If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know at this point I'm struggling with Blogtober. I work two jobs, and I had scheduled all kinds of posts, but I've run out of pre-written posts, and I can't read my books fast enough. So instead of trying to make up some shitty content today (I don't want to do that to you guys), I'm going to post a few creepy books I've read in the past and do quick mini-sum reviews of them.

The pictures are linked to my full review if you want to go there!

Marie Antoinette: Serial Killer by Katie Alender
I really liked the general idea of this one — Marie Antoinette's ghost comes back to exact revenge on her enemies, and the heirs of people who sold her out. But the writing was pretty juvenile. The characters were stereotypical, and the plot was pretty predictable. But there is a cute, forbidden-romance student-tour guide kind of thing that goes on, and that was pretty enjoyable.

Charm & Strange by Stephanie Kuehn
I feel like I'm the only person in the camp that didn't like this book, so you may want to not take my word for it. But even after reading it, I still am not totally sure what it's about. I know the main character is new at this boarding school, and he has a really dark secret that I don't really want to reveal because I think it's supposed to be a surprise, but I figured it out early on. If you want more info on how I felt about it, click the picture.

I've got two past reviews for today, and two that I may use in the future because I am quickly running out of topic posts. I have had a lot of fun this month, but I am looking forward to not blogging every day! It's been extremely challenging!
