October is all about one thing – Hallowe’en. I’m not super big into Hallowe’en, and I can be a bit of a wuss when it comes to scary movies or books. One movie I do love, though, is The Addams Family. I love the dynamic between Morticia and Gomez, and I aspire to be as deadpan as Wednesday Addams. When I saw this awesome Addams Family Book Tag on Books and Hot Tea, I knew it would be perfect for some October blogging.

While we sit crying into our large Coke, lamenting what we think is a shambles of an adaptation, there’s no need to despair. It might be easy to forget that there are so many other great adaptations that have been just as good, if not maybe better, than their literary basis.
Yes, I did really say that. Sometimes, the movie completely does the book justice. It’s a huge crime among book bloggers to say it, I know, but I can think of just a few books where the screen comes pretty close to the story on the page.
I really love 90s movies. I was born in the early 90s, so I wasn’t exactly of the right viewing age when they came out. I spent a lot of time catching up though. I’ve seen most of the films on this book tag, which I spotted on Kristen Kraves Books, and the rest are definitely on my must watch list.
This book is part of my Name TBR.
Audrey is over romance. Since her parents’ relationship imploded her mother’s been catatonic, so she takes a cinema job to get out of the house. But there she meets wannabe film-maker Harry. Nobody expects Audrey and Harry to fall in love as hard and fast as they do. But that doesn’t mean things are easy. Because real love isn’t like the movies…
One of my favourite YA books, and the first I ever read, was Candy by Kevin Brooks. I’ve made no secret of my love of it here.
