If you read my review of Hypnos, you know that I can be picky about adult urban fantasy books. There are concepts that I have no interest in exploring and there are a lot of plotlines that I consider overdone and don’t really want to read over and over. As a result, I rarely go looking for urban fantasy novels. Instead, I wait to find them in the wild.
As I was cataloguing the books in my home and setting aside horror-related books for October, Monsters of Templeton caught my eye.
As I mentioned before, I’m using October as an excuse to read all of the fantasy books that are cluttering up my to-read list. I was really excited to include The Vine Witch in the list of books I set aside to review for October because it’s written by a new author! Any chance I get to read new authors (and find new books/series to obsess over), I’m taking it.
The Strain is the first book in The Strain Trilogy, and I am hooked enough to already have confirmed that the rest of the trilogy is available through my library’s audiobook app.
Since we started this blog in October and our inaugural post was the first book in the Mercy Thompson series, we thought it would be fun to review another Patricia Briggs book for our anniversary.
It’s October and in honor of the spookiest month of the year, I’ve decided to read a bunch of fantasy novels. Because my last review was an Adult Urban Fantasy (LINK to Hypnos), I decided to switch things up and read a Young Adult Fantasy next. Bound by Duty is the first book in a short series (yes, I read all three) about the main character, Amelia.
Shirley Jackson writes my favorite type of horror - creepy and ambiguous, relying largely on characters rather than violence or the supernatural.
For those of you who don’t know, I really like the Adult Urban Fantasy genre. I don’t read it very often because I tend to become immersed and forget about my other responsibilities...like eating...and sleeping...but when I find a new urban fantasy that appeals, I look for the right time in my life to think about nothing else before I get started. With Halloween near, I’m making the time! So, I pulled out Hypnos.

Happy Halloween Month! We both love Autumn and Halloween, but October has another distinction as well. It’s the month we started this blog! Yes, as of this month, Bathtub Book Club is officially 1 year old! We can say a few words and take some wobbly steps, but before you know it we’ll be knocking…
