I wanted to throw out a 'oh Happy New Year, I guess!' post, to check in with you all! I've been working on my own way of journaling every year which focus on my many different passions, being creative and giving myself space to exist and feel my feelings (in words or in art) I wanted to give a list of suggestions for people trying to move away from the toxic New Year resolutions (which I already commented on last year) and find something else more fulfilling to focus on this year but also something that has a positive impact on yourself and others.

Hey pals, For a special Halloween edition of my Top 5 Recs posts, I had to ask my friend Aisling for her spooky book recs. I couldn't think of anyone better for this month. Ash and I have worked together many times on blog posts over the years. I trust her with everything gothic, vampire, supernatural, and horror. I hope you enjoy this guest post, and find something to read this Halloween Season!
