Goodreads Monday 11/4

Hey all!


I don’t really sleep that well and haven’t since this summer and it’s Daylights Savings here in the states and we gained an hour or lost it or some shit IDK. It’s light out when I go to work so WHATEVA. It’s great for goths because it gets dark early and we all turn into bats and head out and party in the trees.

Which is metal as FUCK

but I’ll be messed up for a week or so lol. Also I stay sick when it’s colder out which is oh so fun. But we are not here to hear me complaining (yes, we are). It is GOODREADS MONDAY TIME.

The Ruins by Scott B. Smith

Trapped in the Mexican jungle, a group of friends stumble upon a creeping horror unlike anything they could ever imagine. Two young couples are on a lazy Mexican vacation–sun-drenched days, drunken nights, making friends with fellow tourists. When the brother of one of those friends disappears, they decide to venture into the jungle to look for him. What started out as a fun day-trip slowly spirals into a nightmare when they find an ancient ruins site . . . and the terrifying presence that lurks there.

Why I Wanna Read This

So I believe this is a movie that I briefly saw and that completely terrified me so of course I absolutely MUST watch it and have nightmares that will further horrify and disrupt my sleep.


But no, this premise seems amazing and I actually started to read it but other things came up like ARCs and life and what not and I had to put it on pause but best believe I will get back to it.

Oh, did you think that just because October is over my haunting reads would end? Oh no my dears, the worst…the worst is yet to come.


Love you my babies!!! What’s your Goodreads Monday? Or if you just want to chit chat comment below.

Later days ❤

  1. I read Theme Music this holiday season and I loved it! I couldn’t put it down. The reviews are mixed but it was exactly what I was looking for. It was one of those books I pretty much carried a conversion w/ as I read (“what?” “ have you lost your mind?”)
    I hope you like The Ruins as I want to read it also.
    This is my last week before I start taking care of my grandson full time. Maternity leave is over next week and mom starts her new job. I didn’t go back to subbing this fall and I miss the kids but this will be a fun after the initial breakaway stage (ha). Soon, I’ll get to see my granddaughter a half day and my grandson every day. Plus, we have another grandson coming in January. I’m hoping nap time and a regular schedule will give me more reading time.
    I’m over Daylight Savings Time – it was a great idea years ago but does it really help those individuals now? I hate it getting dark at 4:45 at night.

    1. ooooh that title alone sounds so so great. and oh my god that sounds amazing 🙂 congrats to you and your family!!! new babies are so much fun and you seem like such a fun grandma. I hope the sleep schedule does work with your reading though lol.


  2. I can’t believe I’m going to say this but I’VE READ THIS BOOK and holy shit, it was freaky AF. But this is also coming from one of the biggest chickens you know so… Take that how you will! Haha seriously though, it was creepier and a lot more gross than I expected. I don’t know what I was doing picking this book up but I DID IT. I think you’d enjoy it lol
    I’m now off to listen to Missy E because damn, that song!
