The Graveyard Book
The Graveyard Book | Neil Gaiman
When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard? Brought up by the resident ghosts, ghouls and spectres, Bod has an eccentric childhood learning about life from the dead. But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family. A stunningly original novel deftly constructed over eight chapters, featuring every second year of Bod's life, from babyhood to adolescence. Will Bod survive to be a man?

I loved this story! I‘ve always been fascinated by cemeteries and I wonder if it‘s partially because our town‘s main cemetery was next door to my elementary school. Growing up in New England there were plenty of old cemeteries to explore and those are my favorite spots to visit when in Boston. They‘re special places. Thanks to @madamereadsalot1 for gifting this to me in a swap! 🤗

I remember really enjoying this book, which is like The Jungle Book but the boy is raised by ghosts in a graveyard instead of animals in a jungle. It‘s a good pick for a #ghoststory #FallisBooked

"Sometimes fiction is a way of coping with the poison of the world in a way that lets us survive it. It's not irrelevant, those moments of connection, those places where fiction saves your life. It's the most important thing there is."
~Neil Gaiman (part of his Newberry Award acceptance speech for this book.)

Lot's of ghosts in this story! ?

Branwen @vivastory What?! 😲 No way! Omg that is awesome! Where can you do that at? @ShelfRighteous It is sooo good! He's such an amazing author! I think my favorite if his is Neverwhere! @OriginalCyn620 😀💕📚 2d
Branwen @GingerAntics Yasssss! It's so good! And I love the chilling opening line! 😱 2d
GingerAntics I was just looking at the opening line yesterday. It‘s a GREAT opening line! It seems to be the original opening line, too. I saw a photo of the first page of the actual hand written first draft. I didn‘t know he drafts almost everything by hand first, so typing it up becomes the second draft. 2d
Meaw_catlady Oooh love this book!! Kitty looking adorable as usual! 🖤😻 (edited) 2d
ShelfRighteous I have read Neverwhere and I loved it too! You have to give it to his imagination tho. Same goes for Ocean at the End of the Lane🤩 2d
Branwen @GingerAntics Oh wow! Does he really? I had no idea he does that, that's really cool! 😍 Where did you see the first draft? Is it online? @Meaw_catlady Thanks so much! 😻 Chaplin loves cuddling up and posing with books! 😸 @ShelfRighteous Yes! I totally agree! His ideas are so incredible! 😀 2d

Branwen @vivastory @Ericalambbrown Thanks so much! You guys are the best! 💕 @GingerAntics Oh wow. WOW. Those are utterly gorgeous! 😍 I got chills! 2d
GingerAntics They are amazing! That fact that they‘re just in some random house in Wisconsin right now, just all over the place is amazing! It makes me watch to write by hand again. I haven‘t done that in absolute ages, but then I really suck and typing stuff up once it‘s written, so I‘m not sure it would ever get done. I‘m torn. 2d

#ChillingPhotoChallenge Day 12 #graveyard I actually really like graveyards 🤷🏼‍♀️ I find them to be peaceful and I love the look of the tombstones. This is a picture of Davis Graveyard down in Oregon which isn‘t a true graveyard it‘s actually a yard haunt but this was too cool of a picture to not share. #teamslaughter #scarathlon @Clwojick

“One grave in every graveyard belongs to the #ghouls. Wander any graveyard long enough and you will find it—waterstained and bulging, with cracked or broken stone, scraggly grass or rank weeds about it, and a feeling, when you reach it, of abandonment. It may be colder than the other gravestones, too, and the name on the stone is all too often impossible to read. #QuotsyOct19 #AllHallowsRead #ghoul #GiveAScaryBook

I had a lot of spreadsheet work today at work, so I actually sat and listened to a whole audiobook. I‘ve never actually done that before. This book was easy to focus on too while working.

This was a cute, whimsical story with a sad ending. 😭I loved BOD‘s story and journey.
