It's still Monday over here so I wanted to write about the books I read last month. I'm keeping up with my resolution of reading thirty books this year over at Goodreads, and thanks to the Better World Reading Challenge and the buddy system over at [ profile] thestoryinside (an awesome Book Club LJ community where you get paired up to choose each other's books for that month) I'm not having a problem in picking my next book.

I've officially started my reading challenge today, my goal is to read 30 books in 2017. I pledged to so over at Goodreads. In addition to that [personal profile] sugar_cherries posted about this awesome reading challenge she plans to do and I decided to join in. That way I can find my next book and do both challenges at the same time.

My first book ticks the collection of short stories box and is one I've been wanting to read. My friend K got it for me as a birthday present, and gives me the perfect opportunity to go through the pile of unread books I have.

The Girl on the Fridge by Etgar Keret is a collection of his best short stories. It's less than 200 pages and each story appears to be an easy and quick read. Also, I love the cover. I first encountered Keret's work when I picked up Kneller's Happy Campers and I was pleasantly surprised when I couldn't put it down until I reached the last page. This novella was the inspiration for the movie Wristcutters: A Love Story which became one of my favorites. So I have high expectations for The Girl on the Fridge, we'll see once I finish it.

Today I have my favorite fantasy and horror authors. In reality I enjoy the work of many --a lot of the stuff I read falls into horror/fantasy/sick-fi--but I've narrowed it down to five, based on how many times I've gone back and read their works, and the impact they have had in my life one way or another.

Ever since I was a little girl Halloween's been my favorite holiday. The chance to put on a costume and going from door to door asking from candy was exciting. In honor of that I decided to post my 13 Days of Halloween, where each day until the 31st I'll be posting some of my favorite things, usually related to the spooky holiday. So without further ado, I present you:
