Top Ten Tuesday | top ten reasons that i don't read many spooky stories

Hi Everyone!

Wow, it's been a few weeks! I don't know why I stopped doing TTT these last few weeks, I think life and school kind of got in the way a bit and it just didn't happen. Anyway, I'm back for this Halloween special!

I wanted to share some reasons why I don't read many spooky stories. Some of these are a bit sarcastic and I hope I don't offend anyone. If you love spooky stories, I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments and I can't wait to read everyone's recommendations in this week's TTT. 

As for autumnal reads, Pumpkin Heads by Rainbow Rowell is a favourite of mine!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Check her blog out here!

1. I read before bed, and yes I get nightmares.


2. I don't need to be scared, thank you very much.


3. Usually, the stories are not very exciting and very predictable.


4. The characters tend to be very frustrating (like why would you go into the woods in the middle of the night? WHY?).


5. I'm quite happy reading soppy romances.


6. I don't read to feel sad, stressed or anxious and spooky stories make me feel this way, as well as very uncomfortable.


7. I have just never found a scary story that is well-written and has compelling characters (recommendations welcome).


8. I have so many books to read and although I want to get in the "Halloween vibe" I also just want to get lost in my current book.


9. Time limit. I don't know if it's just me, but I don't want to read a Halloween book AFTER Halloween. It just doesn't feel right. I also don't want to read it at the beginning of October, so I end up with a very small window in which to read spooky stories.


10. I just don't enjoy them as much as other books. If you do then that's fantastic, but it's just not really my thing!

p.s. casual magic of the day:

(If you are new here and have no idea what I'm on about, click here to find out more)

I am learning about the Cold War in History and it's just SO fascinating. I'm loving making lots of links to the current war in Ukraine and I finally feel like I understand the basic idea of what's happened and what NATO and The Warsaw Pact are and how the arms race and space race were linked to the Cold War. Also, it's absolutely incredible to me to be able to learn about radiation and nuclear weapons in physics and then the effects of them on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in History. Linking learning is something I especially love and I had some readings to do for History and it was just SO FASCINATING and didn't feel like a chore at all. Sometimes I just love learning, so that's my casual magic for today.

  4. I tend not to read super spooky/creepy books or watch that kind of movies, because my brain is crazy enough without any help!

  6. I don't read spooky books either. It's just not my genre & even the movies I watch is more "spooky lite" and thriller like than horror. Also, yay for sappy romances and this = "like why would you go into the woods in the middle of the night? WHY?" SAME! ;)
