I have been tagged by the wonderful Janel at Keeper of Pages for this fun Fall Festivities tag. If you haven’t visited Janel’s blog please check it out, she has reviewed some awesome crime reads. Because of her my TBR list keeps growing! She can also be found on Instagram at reads.crime and Twitter @keeperofpages. Don’t forget to check the end of the post to see if you’ve been tagged….

Now on to my selections:

APPLE PICKING (A book on your TBR pile that looks so good you can’t wait to take a bite out of it!)



I can’t tell you how excited I am to have gotten this from Netgalley a couple of days ago!! Chevy Stevens writes fantastic characters with surprising plots. Still Missing, her first novel, is high on my list of all time favorite reads




CORN MAZE (A book that is fun to get lost in)



You might be surprised to see this on my list seeing as though I gravitate toward mysteries and thrillers but I just read this one this summer and loved everything about it. The characters and dialogue are so snappy, it was fast paced and basically…FUN!




HAUNTED HOUSE (A book that scares you silly)




Yes It’s Chevy Stevens again! I don’t read a lot of truly “scary” books and while Bird Box is on my TBR list and it scares me just thinking about it, Still Missing is a classic terrorizing thriller. I remember feeling very on edge reading it as the tension is sky high throughout whole book. If I was a real estate agent this book would terrify me!



PUMPKIN PATCH (Last book you picked up/purchased)

29502006      31454606

I purchased Without Trace after Annie from The Misstery gave it a glowing recommendation and I just picked up The Bird Tribunal which was sent to me by the super nice and generous Karen Sullivan at Orenda Books. I’m so excited to read each of these

SCENIC DRIVES (A book that is lyrically beautiful)




The cover of this book just doesn’t do it justice. This is Bill Clegg’s debut novel which was long listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2015 but which I just read in the spring so it will make my top 10 reads of 2016!  Such excellent writing and the story will break your heart.




PUMPKIN CARVING (A book you didn’t enjoy much and you wouldn’t mind carving up!)




I believe this was short listed for the Man Booker this year but It just didn’t work for me on any level




DRINKING APPLE CIDER (A book to curl up under the covers with)


I realize that’s FOUR books to curl up under the covers with but you won’t regret settling in with Sharon Bolton’s Lacey Flint series. This is my absolute favorite series going and it’s SHARON BOLTON so you know you are in for top notch storytelling!

JUMPING IN A PILE of LEAVES ( A book that reminds you of your childhood)




The childhood books of all mystery lovers!





SCARY MOVIE NIGHT ( favorite spooky read)


I read this in high school and don’t think I’ve read anything as scary since!

  1. A great selection of books! Oh dear, carving up Eileen – I have that on my shelf to read 🙈 I haven’t seen many positive reviews for it, although I did hear the writing style itself I’d good (even if the story isn’t). …I really enjoyed Bolton’s Daisy in Chains so I’m excited to read the Flint series! …For a truly scary book, it has to be King lol. …And I have Without Trace to read also! So glad you took up the tag, I love your book choices! xx
