LAST. NOW. NEXT.
NUMBER THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-TWO
SEPTEMBER READING WRAP-UP
MY WEEKLY PULL

TELL ME TUESDAY is a floating feature, depending on your reading style, where you tell us what you read last, what you are reading now, what you will be reading next from your tbr pile, and why. I am curious why people read what they read, so tell me!

ADULT FICTION
PRACTICAL MAGIC SERIES

WITCHES
Published October 5th 2021 - NetGalley
I'm going to admit that, after the two brilliant prequels she gave us, I was more than a little disappointed with this book.

I have re-read Sorcerer's Stone starting on Back to Hogwarts Day, September first, for the last four years. Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.

YOUNG ADULT
STANDALONE
HISTORICAL FICTION
NEWBERY AWARD
Published 1958 - Overdrive Borrow
This book did not age well. The fact that the Puritans and the Quakers were against slavery, and that's why they weren't rich like plantation owners in Jamaica, was hidden in a couple of off-hand statements characters made. In my opinion there was a big missed opportunity to talk about slavery economics. The Native Americans in the story were portrayed as war mongering heathens. Which I kind of expected from a book written in the 1950s, but it still caught me off guard. I did think the witch hunting elements were well done, though.

MY GOODREADS REVIEW
ADULT FICTION
STANDALONE
COZY STYLE
PARANORMAL ROMANCE
WITCHES
Published September 28th 2021 - NetGalley
The summaries I read made me think this was diverse Literary Fiction, not the badly written cozy style Paranormal cheesy Romance that it was. The diverse content was a paragraph or two. I wish Goodreads had a zero star rating.

★★★

ADULT FICTION
STANDALONE
HISTORICAL FICTION
MAGICAL REALISM
WITCHES
Published February 2019 - Hoopla Borrow
This story was filled with furry and feathered friends. I really enjoyed its atomospheric overtones. It's a perfect read for spooky season! This was real Magical Realism where you don't know if the fantasy magic is real in the story, or not. Too many people identify books like the Practical Magic books as Magical Realism when they're not because in the story you know the magic is real.

GOODREADS
ADULT FICTION
ALEX STERN SERIES #1
URBAN FANTASY
GHOSTS
Published October 2019 - Own Ebook
I didn't care for this book when I first started reading it a few months ago, so I set it aside. I am liking it much more now, but she has used a couple of vocabulary words incorrectly and misinterpreted a line in a poem. I hate sloppiness like that. She has also been loosening her magic rules to make plot progression easier, again sloppy. However she has me fully invested in her characters and turning pages wanting to know what's going to happen next.



Good question. Any suggestions for ghost stories?
