Synopsis: A charming collection of comics about an ambitious little sloth who’d rather just take it easy.

Are you a fan of carbs, the internet, and naps? Slothilda is your spirit animal!

From former Simpsons animator Dante Fabiero comes this all-too-real comic series about an adorable little sloth who’s driven by her desire for self-improvement. Slothilda explores an inner conflict we can all relate to―the desire to succeed and grow, while paradoxically dealing with the ever present temptation to sloth.

With themes related to work, fitness, food, shopping, and pets―this book shows that you’re not the only sloth at heart.

For anyone who isn’t aware I run a book club and for October we’re doing a horror genre read-a-thon and as this is not only my final day hosting Blogoween but also my final day blogging before my vacation I figured now was a perfect time for myself and others to share what they’ve read so far this month in hopes of being able to recommend some good reads to others.

For part of the read-a-thon we also provided the challenge for members to share their spells!

We’re all familiar with Book Spine Poetry by now. No? Stack up your books in an order that allow the titles to create a poem. For this prompt we’re using horror or Halloween themed books only to line up and create Book Spine Spells!

As this is a spooky idea that I’d love to see more people attempt I chose to also have this as my first Blogoween prompt that I’d host! Yes thats right, today is the start of me hosting BLOGOWEEN *spooky ooooooo*

Review: The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich

The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
Series: The Dead House #1
Genre: Horror | Young Adult
Length: 448 pages
Published on 10th March 2016 by Orion Children’s Books

Purchased for myself from WHSmith with a gift card

Twenty-five years ago, Elmbridge High School burned down. The blaze killed three and injured twenty, and one pupil, Carly Johnson, disappeared. For two decades, little was revealed about what became known as the Johnson Incident. Until now. A diary has been found in the ruins of the school. In this diary, Kaitlyn Johnson, Carly’s twin, tells of the strange and disturbing sequence of events leading to the incident. But Kaitlyn doesn’t exist. She never has. Chilling, creepy and compelling, THE DEAD HOUSE is one of those very special books that finds all the dark places in your imagination, and haunts you long after you’ve finished reading.
