I made a coffee, took a shower and I’m still going! I don’t know how long I’ll make it but I’m still enjoying reading which is all that really matters.
I finished The Women Could Fly and I loved it! Such a great read and it really helped time fly by.
Halloween Party Murder is the perfect pick me up. It’s such a ridiculously fun little Halloween story. I will be done with this one by my next check in (if I’m awake enough to make one).
My next read is The Last Final Girl. This will be a 2 and a half hour read but it’s the Stephen Graham Jones book I’ve been looking forward to the most. I’m a total sucker for books about Final Girls so I have my fingers crossed that I will love it enough to stay awake for it. I also have a back up plan of getting through a lot of short stories that will only take me about 20-30 minutes of listening to keep my momentum up. ￼
Life in a slasher film is easy. You just have to know when to die.
Aerial View: A suburban town in Texas. Everyone’s got an automatic garage door opener. All the kids jump off a perilous cliff into a shallow river as a rite of passage. The sheriff is a local celebrity. You know this town. You’re from this town.
Zoom In: Homecoming princess, Lindsay. She’s just barely escaped death at the hands of a brutal, sadistic murderer in a Michael Jackson mask. Up on the cliff, she was rescued by a horse and bravely defeated the killer, alone, bra-less. Her story is already a legend. She’s this town’s heroic final girl, their virgin angel.
Monster Vision: Halloween masks floating down that same river the kids jump into. But just as one slaughter is not enough for Billie Jean, our masked killer, one victory is not enough for Lindsay. Her high school is full of final girls, and she’s not the only one who knows the rules of the game.
When Lindsay chooses a host of virgins, misfits, and former final girls to replace the slaughtered members of her original homecoming court, it’s not just a fight for survival-it’s a fight to become The Last Final Girl.
