Halloween Stuff and Autumn Nonsense

autumn-20461__180

This October I’m doing a lead up to Halloween theme with lots of spooky, scary, and fun posts. As well as this I will be doing some reblogs (which don’t necessarily need to be autumn/Halloween themed but are helpful advice to authors/bloggers, writers.)

Here are some of my Halloween themed posts that you might have missed:

Frozen-Charlotte-book-cover

I’ve just finished reading Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell – part of the #redeyereadealong on Goodreads. Highly recommended 4.5 stars. Keep an eye out for my review. After this I’ll be reading the rest of the red eye titles too! So plenty to keep me occupied…

Details of the readalong below:

Other Bloggers Posts

As well as this I’ve been nosy checking out other bloggers posts about Halloween/Autumn and thought it would be nice to share them with you, here are a few gems:

First up is this wonderfully spooky cat café in Japan, this really caught my eye:

Fellow #Blog Battler author Rawls E. has a welcome to autumn post, celebrating autumn, October, pumpkins, spooky Haunted houses, hayrides, and cemeteries:

Fancy visiting some literary horror houses? Look no further, Flavorwire, opens up its doors to Stephen King, (spider webbed gated front with bats!!) Edgar Allen Poe’s red brick house with eerie basement, H.P. Lovecraft, Neil Gaiman (with a phenomenal library!)  Ray Bradbury, Anne Rice, Clive Barker,  Shirley Jackson.

These were posted quite a while ago but are excellent Halloween posts by Donna Parker the lady with the strange sounding blog name that I can’t spell:

About Marje @ Kyrosmagica

Hi. Welcome to my blog, Kyrosmagica. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer in the process of finishing my first YA fantasy novel, set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on Net Galley and Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

    lol Thank you, Marje, I was giggling about not being about to spell my blog name – there’s a story behind that and I see you picked as one of my Halloween posts, the Seinfeld one, that’s the show where the name came from. The yadayada joke (I added the ‘darcy’ because well, yada darcy yada). I didn’t know blog names were important when I started and well, there it is. 😉
    Thank you so so much for sharing my Halloween posts – as you can tell I love Halloween!
    And now I’m going back to visit all the links you mentioned and share this so others can find them because I’m in great company here. Thanks again. 🙂
    Hope this week treats you kindly. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, interested to find out about the origin of your blog name. I don’t think I thought about mine too much either, but I kind of like Kyrosmagica so I think I’ll stick with that. I love Halloween too! Thanks for taking a tour around the links etc,…. And hope you have a good week too.
