Shelf Control

I found this meme and thought… “Hey! I have TBR shelves I need to control!”

So here we are.

Welcome to Shelf Control — an original feature created and hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies.

Shelf Control is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves. Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up! For more info on what Shelf Control is all about, check out my introductory post, here.

I am beyond excited for fall… autumn (whatever, I’ve always called it fall).  It’s my favorite season for several reasons:

  1. Climate- I live in New England, so it’s kind of required I love fall
  2. Hot apple cider
  3. Pumpkins
  4. Spooky (NOT gory!) Halloween decorations
  5. Atmospheric reads

I have quite a few books I saved to read leading up to Halloween, and honestly they may end up taking up my entire fall season, which I am going to say is September through November.

My birthday was in June, and with the gift cards I received I ordered several 2018 releases that I anticipate will make good lead up to Halloween reads.

The first one I will talk about is:

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

I am going to venture a guess that by now everyone has at least heard of this book, if not read it.  It was released in March, with much hype, and I made a promise to myself that I would save it for fall. I mean… it’s about witches!

An excerpt from the Goodreads description:

Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…

Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.

The cover is gorgeous, the plot sounds perfect for this time of year, and I’ve seen enough good reviews for it, that I am more than eager to try it out for myself.  So far, I have gotten lucky and ended up loving books that have gotten mixed reviews.   The Goodreads rating is 3.86 and my prediction is that it will be 4 if not 5 stars from me.  We’ll see if I was right (I really hope so! I could use a 5 star book to kick off the season!)
