1) Penpal, it's hard to find a good thriller sometimes.
2) Bumblebee back in January for my 4yr olds bday.
3) Pasta salad.
4) too many, my mom is 1 of 5. Lol. Total is 14, luckily my dad isn't in the picture so I don't have to count that side. Christmases are crazy enough especially since we have 20 under the age of 7 between us.

#DontPanic... nothing is going on, it‘s just a series of coincidences... NOT. Literally ALL THE REASONS to panic. Except we don‘t know why until the very end of the book!

So creepy, even more so because it has such a strong sense of realism to it!

Eggs Will it give me nightmares 😳😱 1mo
laur89 @Eggs Depends what scares you... this isn‘t a ghost/monster story. All of the characters are real humans! I wouldn‘t suggest to read this before bed 😅 Maybe in the middle of the day while at home (like I did) is the best bet. So worth it though 1mo

I could not put this book down. I read most of it while I was at work. As soon as I got home, around 12:30am, I continued to read it. This was after I added a few things I‘d ordered to my earthquake kit. (A 7.1 hitting less than 150 miles from my house was a wake up call.) It‘s so creepy. This could be a real story. It‘s not vampires or dead things coming back to life. It‘s a creepy stalker.

⭐️: 5/5

This book is so unnerving! Just the fact that what is happening to this kid could actually happen. Holy crap. I can‘t stop reading. I‘m on page 113 and that‘s just what I‘ve managed to read at work so far tonight. Good thing the phones are quiet! I probably won‘t sleep tonight until this book is finished.

Day 2 of #lovehate oh my stars this was difficult, but I think I have my final answer. The villain from Penpal is the most annoying villain. While this book is well written, the villain was so annoying to me. I don't want to give too much away, but I wanted to scream so many times because of how annoyed I was.

ErinSueMreads He wrote another book that keeps being recommended to me I think. Bad man maybe? It‘s black with a creepy ass shopping cart on the front.... 6mo

Omfgosh that was one wild ride 😱😱😱!!! Now I want more from this Author... This novel was definitely one for the record for Creepiness factor overload. Every. Single. Chapter. Sent chills down my spine. I could not get enough even while pushing the book 📖 away in fear of what I‘d read next...what I‘d learn next 🤯😱. I had to stifle the need to Scream “RUN!” so many times. This seriously had me at the edge of my seat until the very last word.

A spooky tale from the perspective of a narrator sharing life events from childhood that felt almost unreal, altering and uncomfortable. The chapters flow together well through use of story telling and the ending was shocking.

Starting this one today. Goodreads says I have to read 3.5 books a week to still hit my goal by the end of the year. Uhhhhhhhh is that even doable in my world?

Im curious. To all you fast readers out there. What is the most amount of books you have read in a week before???

Lel2403 7 but then I was stuck at home with chemo side effects so had time to read all day. It‘s usually 3 9mo
Lovesbooks87 Depending on the week, I can normally read between 5-6 books a week. With 2-3 books read on the weekend. 9mo
Callemarie Dang @Lovesbooks87 im jealous. Im with @Lel2403 I am.normally 2-3 but sometimes it's more sometimes its lesa 9mo
Joy0201 I think I read 10 once. But it was a week that had a marathon. I used to be really obsessed with reading quickly. I naturally read fast, but now it‘s not such an obsession. 9mo

I had to finish by the light of the morning, because this book is not conducive to haunted hotel rooms at night. 😂

Penpal creeped me out a whole bunch... there‘s nothing supernatural here, just super creepy, mostly plausible predatory human behavior, and that can be very terrifying. I had minor annoyances with the writing, but this book brought the horror. 😱

Sending out tomorrow for #TeamDracula! #HorrorGoesPostalBookClub #HGPBC

In Chicago overnight for a concert, and we decided to stay at the very beautiful, historic Congress Plaza Hotel this time. It‘s old and the high ceilings and hallways are giving off a creepy Shining vibe, but there are built in booklights on the bed, so I‘m a happy camper.

Unfortunately, my current book is scary in the daytime when I‘m not in a supposedly haunted hotel... not sure how much reading I will get done after the show. 😂

A boy gets a pen pal as part of a school project, and his life is forever changed. As an adult, he examines his memories to piece the story together. Creepy. Disturbing. The freezer won‘t do...set it in cement and hurl it into the ocean! But I loved it! I thank the author for reminding me why I‘m an introvert and why people are truly the scariest monsters. I cannot wait to read his new book. (Pic of how I wished I could have read this book.)

Regi_C @monalyisha that is a solid hashtag! So what kind of bun do you have? 12mo
monalyisha @Regi_C if you search the hashtag, there are pictures of her... but we don‘t really know what she is! When we adopted her, they listed her as “Mixed.” She‘s gray & has ears that stick up, rather than ears that flop. She‘s not a dwarf. My guess is that she‘s part-Himalayan... or maybe Californian?...because we met her sister who was white with a brown smudge-nose (so cute, too). 😍🐰 It‘s really a mystery! 🤷‍♀️ 12mo
Regi_C @monalyisha she's adorable though! 🐇💖💖 She kind of looks Himalayan, but maybe a bit of Rex mixed in? Eho cares, though, she's your baby bun! We only know Sammie and Elsa are Dutch because they're both from the same unwanted litter, but they (esp. Elsa) lack most of the markings 12mo
monalyisha @Regi_C She‘s definitely soft like a Rex. It‘s fun to wonder sometimes... but yeah, it doesn‘t matter! I love that you have two! We thought about getting her a husbun once, & we took her on a vigorous round of bunny speed-dating at the shelter (House Rabbit Network) but she was decidedly uninterested. We keep talking about trying again, maybe, since it‘s been awhile - but she‘s so well-behaved that we‘re afraid to ruin it! 😆 12mo
Regi_C @monalyisha Maybe she's cool being the single wine aunt bun of your household! It's a good life, can't blame her, and you never know how her behavior might change since bonded buns act a bit differently. Mine were bonded from basically birth, so I adopted them together. Only Sammie ventures out to spend time with me, though... 12mo
monalyisha @Regi_C Moxie doesn‘t like to be held but she chills with us quite a bit. We had an AMAZING stretch where she actually slept in bed with us. Omg. It was the BEST... but then, after weeks & weeks, she decided she actually *did* want to pee on the bed. So tragic. 😭 Still, she sleeps in her bunny bed in the same room as us so she‘s still close. And sometimes we make a bed on the floor with a futon mattress & *that* she never pees on. 🙄 #bunnyrules (edited) 12mo
Regi_C @monalyisha OMG she actually slept in your bed? That sucks about the pee, though. Mine are pretty good about their litter but I can barely trust Sammie to roam on her own because she loves wires a little too much 12mo

Once I got into the flow of Auerbach‘s style, I couldn‘t stop reading. The creepiness is mainly psychological and that‘s my favorite kind of horror. Poor kid wants a pen pal and ends up with a stalker 👀.

I didn‘t have high hopes for this book but it actually turned out to be sufficiently creepy. If you have kids, this will mess you up. This is the first book in a while to make me want to sleep with the lights on. The writing could have been better but the content made up for that.

BookishGirl06 I really enjoyed this one and this whole thing could probably have been avoided if not for the kindergarten project 😔 1y
Cailey_Mac Was it just creepy? Or did it actually have thriller-vibes? I recently read A Head Full of Ghosts and found it to just be creepy, not full-on scary like reviews were raving; this almost sounds like the same scenario 1y
Karkar @Cailey_Mac I say just creepy. It did not scare me. 1y
collegecatlady @Cailey_Mac @Karkar I agree. Just creepy. There was not really a mystery to solve. I only felt propelled by wanting to know what the characters would do next or what would happen to them next. 1y
Cailey_Mac @Karkar @collegecatlady lame! It‘s nice when the story compels you to finish it, but it would be nice to find a skin crawling scary story 1y

Apparently this novel began as Reddit posts. #Internet #ReadingResolutions @Jess7

BookishGirl06 I believe that‘s true. Idk if you know about creepypasta or not but a few people on YouTube have read the story out loud too. 1y

@MaleficentBookDragon #666Giveaway What made this the scariest book to me was reading from the point of view of a 6 year old whose world is so full of wonder and innocence and yet, certain things don‘t add up. After a class project has him put a picture in a balloon with a note asking for penpals he has no idea that he is about to be stalked. There‘s some very eerie scenes that had the hair on my arms standing up. Thanks for the giveaway!!!

TheWordJar I‘ve been wanting to read this one for awhile, but it keeps slipping down the TBR. I think it‘s time to move it back up again! 1y
