Cover Adoration (1) | Creeptastic

Posted November 30, 2013 by Christy / 2 Comments

I admit that I sometimes judge books based on their covers.  So, I want to do a feature here on the blog that would let me show some gorgeous covers that definitely make me want to read the book. My Cover Thoughts: This cover is so interestingly creepy that it immediately drew my attention.  I can say that it has me intrigued and I will definitely be picking up the book when it comes out next year.   I love how you can see the girls eyes but you can’t see any other part of her body.  Goodreads Summary: Roberta ‘Bobbie’ Rowe is not the kind of person who believes in ghosts. A Halloween dare at her ridiculously spooky boarding school is […]

Posted November 28, 2013 by Christy / 0 Comments

    Before I get into the more serious stuff, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope it’s filled with love, family and lots and lots of good food 🙂   Now, I know that I owe you all a huge explanation for my absence this month.  I have been so busy with work, kids and school, especially with finals that I haven’t had time to do hardly anything else.  I actually sat down and talked with my husband about maybe having to give up the blog but just taking a break these past few weeks was so hard.  Since I really don’t think I’m ready to give this up I have been racking my brain trying to come up […]
