Hi everyone! Sits down at dusty desk and swipes st the screen with a cloth. So I’ve been away from here for over a month now, I’ll be honest, I was terrified I was done with both blogging and reading, but Halloween seems to have tentatively nudged me back in the right direction, and I’m now enjoying a host of holiday (the holiday of Halloween of course!) reads! Huge hugs to you all, it’s a relief to be back!!!❤
What they say:
This is a short story, approximately 30 pages.
Penny and high school never got along. She attends her fifteen year reunion costume party on Halloween and hopes her high school crush Will shows up. When the lights go out and Will finds her, can their sparks turn the lights back on?
The review: So I’ve always been a ginormous fan of Halloween. Every year my kids ask ‘ but do you really like it more than Christmas?’ And I admit that it’s possible but that it’s not comparable, that they’re two different holidays etc. Saying that, as far as books and movies? I ADORE Halloween done well!
I love the spectacular autumnal colours, the decorations, the costumes, the trick or treaters traipsing from door to door. Perfection! And so this year, with my huge reading block, I decided these were the books that would shift it, and also get me back blogging, and boy was I right!!
The Right Equation was the story of a high school reunion where Penny returns to give the place another chance. In her head is a list of people she doesn’t want to meet, and one she’s intrigued about. I jumped easily into the amazing halloween setting of a high school in halloween, complete with fancy dress and a range of characters who had decided to keep their high school personas, with some of the bullies never having learned to be nice. I flew through this, felling like I was really there, and really feeling for Penny. I’ll admit I wanted the non romantic story to climax more but my god if you want to absolutely ingest the spirit of Halloween this was a fantastic story and as I said, got me my realing groove back, so definitely one I’ll remember and am grateful to!
