My Favorite Creepy Book Picks!

Last year I wrote a post in October showing you my favorite creepy books that are perfect for the month of Halloween. These picks are still my favorite ones, so I thought I would re-post it for those who may have missed it. Enjoy!

Creepy Fav Books-1

The month of October means Halloween, cooler weather and more darkness. And all that means it’s the perfect time to bust out with some creepy reading material, yes?

If you follow me on any of my various social media feeds, especially Goodreads, you know I am an avid reader. I have a very vast actual and virtual book collection and have a list a mile long of books I want to read.

Some of my favorite dark and creepy books are older, like Stephen King novels, but many are ones that have come out in recent years. I am finding ever since Gillian Flynn and Tana French came out, there is a whole new genre of disturbing novels by female writers. And I am loving this!

A Letter From a Home Correctional Facility

Chewy on Bed November 2013-2

It’s been 3,013 days that my captors have held me here. Eight long years. Eight long years of 23 1/2 hours in this house with a 30 minute break for “outdoor activities”. Eight long years of sharing this house with cellmates that drive me insane.

One of my cellmates is this big, goofy fat guy named Sammy. He claims he’s from a long-line of aristocratic felines from England, but I snicker at this. He’s so happy all the time it makes me want to barf. Sometimes I find myself just staring at him with a look of complete disbelief and disgust on my face. How can this guy be for real? He’s locked up in this PRISON, and he likes it? And he’s been here longer than I have! He’s formed some kind of weird bond with the female warden. I think maybe he’s got Stockholm syndrome. The female warden is always petting him and kissing him – forcing him to love her and he lets her! He even seems to like it because sometimes I catch him purring. Often I lash out at him because I just can’t take it anymore. Oh and did I mention he snores? Yep, he snores so loudly that I have to go sleep in another part of the cell-block to get any rest.

Another of my cellmates is this little female named Squirt. I don’t know what she did to get in here because she seems so innocent and gentle. She’s been in here a couple years longer than I have, but seems rather well-adjusted to the life. She doesn’t talk much and in fact sleeps most of the days away. She does go a little crazy when the wardens are eating. It’s like she wants their human food and not our food, and it kind of annoys me. She too has this Stockholm syndrome I think. She actually sleeps on the male warden’s lap! I mean, who does that? The male warden will pet her and she will get all riled up. It’s like they genuinely like each other. Again, I am sickened by this act of fake love, and just want to lash out.

If Sammy Ran a Personal Ad, This Is What It Would Say

Sammy Prowling-4

Good afternoon,

My name is King Samuel I of Wickinghamshire, but pretty much everyone just calls me Sammy or Sam.

Some background about me: In my past 8 lives I was a powerful King in England, but now I’m just an ordinary American house-cat. *Shudder*. I still feel and look aristocratic though, and I don’t understand many of the American ways. People can be so uncivilised here.

I am about 10 years old now, but certainly not an old man by any means. My keepers tell me all the time I still have a “kitten-face” but that just belittles me. I’ve got major spunk and personality and I am looking for someone with those same traits. I am built much like King Henry VIII was. Strong, powerful and yes, maybe I carry a bit of weight around my midsection. I do tend to gorge, purge and gorge, much like my Kingly predecessors, because that is our way!

Erin Condren 2014-2015 Life Planner Platinum Edition Turquoise Review

Erin Condren Life Planner

Not too long ago I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I saw a photo of this beautiful looking planner. I learned it was from Erin Condren, and soon I fell into an obsession with owning one!

Actually I have been obsessed with office supplies, calendars, notebooks and planners as long as I have been alive. I can’t even tell you how many planners, notebooks and Post-it notes I own, it’s kind of embarrassing. But I’ve never owned one as pretty as this one, I can tell you that!

There are quite a few designs of the Life Planners you can choose from, but my favorite was the Platinum foil edition in the color turquoise. These foil planners come in both gold or platinum and are more costly than the regular ones because they are actually hand-stamped using a heart and pressure technique similar to letterpress printing.
