Stacking the Shelves #108


Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews
Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! Click on the link under the book to find its page on Goodreads or Smashwords. 

Please note that I always leave a message on your STS/SP if you visit me, but if you use DISQUS or a similar third party I will not be able to leave a comment on your page. And sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress so you might get a double message sometimes! Blame them, not me!
     
Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it! I don't go in for it in a big way but I like the excuse to have a full day and night of scary films and junk food! Nobody bothers much about it where I live and some years nobody bothers knocking on the doors. With some of the people that live in my area, frankly you don't open the doors at night! I have been joined on my blog today by my furry pumpkin Dave who will be your host for the day. Say hello Dave!


So I had a slow start to the week with the reading side of things but finished strong the last couple of nights by catching up with the Monster Haven series by RL Naquin, which I LOVE! In fact one of my book buys this week is an anthology of stories and poems by that author which includes three Monster Haven short stories that I read and loved, two new ones and other stuff related to old writings and a new upcoming series. Very nice! I grabbed a nice pile of horror downloads since it was Halloween, and some more paperbacks from last week that I didn't put on the stack, like the rest of the Dirk Patton zombie series. Lots of nice books to show off as usual!

  3. WOW! What a great Halloween Haul! It's been so long since I was into reading straight horror, but I still love the greats, like Dean Koontz and Stephen King! Anything Resident Evil is awesome! Happy Halloween!

    1. I went a bit overboard but some were free and the rest were cheap so no complaints there! I really want to reread a few classics from my horror shelf but need to get the tbr down a bit first!

    1. We had one at the door and I just ignored it. I'm so glad I don't live in the US-I couldn't be bothered with film night being ruined by having to keep answering the door! Dave says he hopes you had a good weekend!

  7. Hope you don't mind but I'm skipping by all the mega scary covers you have going here, lol. I'm a wuss, as we know, but I know how much you enjoy all the scary stuff, so enjoy!
    *cough* anyway, I'm commenting to talk to Dave the Frumpy Pumpkin! He looks like a pretty cool guy! Looks like he enjoys a comedy or two! He he. Hi Dave! *waves*
    I hope you had a good Halloween with the movies and food :D I'm actually buying my mum Rise Red (the Stephen King one) and Stay Alive for Christmas. Stay Alive is so fruckin' scary! Well, if you play pc games it us lol. It's the only movie to ever scare my mum, she's hard-core, you'd love her lol. If you haven't seen it you should!

    1. Dave says 'Hi Amy! I'm generally a zombie kind of guy but I do like laughing at people getting hurt in films! *snigger* I do like Barnyard, Monsters Inc, and films with stupid slapstick humour like Jumpin Jack Flash, Home Alone etc. Had fun this year...doing a post about it for all my fans!'

  9. Looks like a great haul! I enjoyed Miss Peregrine's, but it didn't creep me out as much I expected from the look of it.

    1. I'm not really sure what to expect from it to be honest! I guess I'll find out when I read it!

  10. Here in the Netherlands Halloween is getting mor epopular, but it's not as big as in the US. And where we live there isn't really much attention for halloween, so it was just a normal day for us. I did bake pumpkin muffins though. Dave looks adorable! Nice haul you got this week, lots of creepy looking books. have a great week!

  12. Nice spooky haul! I plan to continue the spooky-fest through November because I can't let Halloween go. I rand every doorbell within a mile or two last night with my son and we have TONS of candy! This is by far my favorite holiday. Enjoy your new books!

    1. Halloween must be so much fun with a young kid and a community that get into the spirit of things. Sounds like you both had a great time!

  13. It's a zombie fest here. Will you also be checking out some of the new zombie films in the theatre? I'm waiting for Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse to show up in my neighborhood.

    1. I don't have the money to go to the cinema-far too expensive for me! I'll just need to wait for the cheap dvds or something!

    1. I decided to go with the horror genre as it was Halloween. I think there are only two or three that don't have zombies in them! Still, they are my favourite monsters!

  16. Lots of great scary books this week! I had to go add Insylum to my TBR list on Goodreads, it sounds so good. I've read the book After, that has all the stories in it, and enjoyed several of them. Thanks for stopping by my Sunday Post earlier!
