Good day, dear readers! October has been a spooktacular month so far, and I hope that you are getting plenty of shivers from Stephen King’s “Pet Sematary.” I have been reading through, and so far its a deliciously scary read. As we work on winding down our month, and getting ready to briefly discuss the current read, it is time to bring you our upcoming book as well! November will be here before we know it!

We are going to dive into “The Anatomist’s Wife” by Anna Lee Huber. If you have not read anything by her yet, I highly recommend her writing! I read a book by her last year, and loved it!

I talked my husband into reading one of her books last year, and he enjoyed it as well! Head over to your local library and grab your copy today!
