Took me a bit to get into this one, probably due to some distraction yesterday while listening. Very imaginative story and interesting history about Halloween. Last book for #scarathlon #teamslaughter @Clwojick 26 pts

One final one for #Halloween. It‘s also my #doublespin and gives me my first and only #bookspinbingo for October.
Last year I treated myself to a print copy of the tagged after listening to it for the first time. This year my treat was this Dracula nutcracker because it‘s the perfect mashup of my 2 favourite things! 🎃🧛‍♀️🩰🖤❤️

TheAromaofBooks No matter which bingo board you are using, a bingo is worth 20 points and clearing the board is an extra 100 points. Also, BookSpinBingo counts as a readathon, so any hours spent reading books from your list get the readathon points as well!! 3mo

I am not sure why I missed reading/listening to this Ray Bradbury classic Halloween book before but it was an enjoyable listen last night (narrated by Bronson Pinochet). Lightly spooky & a good review of Halloween traditions around the world. I think it will fill a square in a #LittenListen bingo & 26 points for my #TeamHendrix scorecard with it‘s Halloween title & focus.

I love Bradbury (Dandelion Wine is one of my favorite books EVAH), but had never read this one… I decided to listen because of how much another of my swap partners @PatriciaU loves it, and I‘m so glad I did!

A quick, spooky story starts with a haunted house, continues with a creepy character taking some trick-or-treaters through time to see the history & meaning of Halloween. All with Bradbury‘s amazing & touching storytelling.🖤

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

PatriciaU I‘m so happy you enjoyed it! It‘s a simple but effective treatment of Halloween and the traditions and history surrounding it. Plus the imagery of the tree is spectacular! 3mo
sprainedbrain @PatriciaU Yes! Especially at the end when all of the lights go out. So lovely! 3mo

This one was interesting. Usually I really like Bradbury's writing, but I felt like parts of this book weren't written the best. I did like the concept of the story though, and the history behind Halloween.

Pumpkins play a major role in this book, which makes it well suited for the #Haunted pumpkin prompt. I haven't read this book yet, but I've always loved the movie (I grew up on it)!

monalyisha @mklong Yes! It was the last one at AtHome (I literally had people following me around the store asking me where I found it 😅). Quite a score. 3mo
monalyisha @kellyann28 I guess we‘ll both be surprised when I open it! 😂 You can give me more details once everything‘s on display & we‘ll get it sorted. 3mo
kellyann28 The more I think about it the more I think it's probably something meant for you. I had your stuff loosely together but had a panic moment at this morning when I thought "Whats in this box?....oh no. What's in THAT box?!" 3mo
monalyisha @kellyann28 If you decide you need to know sooner, let me know & I‘ll make my husband go through the stuff, take out the box, & put the other stuff back in. 😉 3mo
kellyann28 Nah, no worries. If I can't remember what's in it (and it's mine) I clearly don't need it that bad! If it is something of mine I'll get with you later and send you money to ship it back! Box 3 out of 2 coming your way 😂 3mo

monalyisha @kellyann28 The third box arrived! 😅 My husband had no point of reference (I graciously chose to exempt him from hearing minute swap details) — but he really laughed at “3 of 2.” He couldn‘t wait to point out the note to me when I got home from work. 😆 3mo

So good thing I read like a fiend👹 the beginning of the year because that mid year slump was a killer🪦. I like to vote in the Goodreads choice awards, so to fight my slump and give me the best chance of voting I'm only reading 2021 releases for Oct and Nov. Except for some of the free spaces, could be older audio books and joining in a group read. Thank you for all you do!

#LittensDressedinBlood

Today‘s prompt of “Come Little Children” made me think of Bradbury‘s The Halloween Tree. A group of friends excitedly meet up for trick-or-treating, only to have one of their crew snatched away. The rest of them take a journey through time and the history of Halloween in hopes of finding and saving their pal.

“The sky was swept clean with brooms.
The sky was yelled clean by boys occupying at least eight of those brooms at once.
And what with changing their cries of fear to cries of delight, the boys almost forgot to look back or listen for Pipkin, similarity sailed off among island clouds.”

3. Yes, except I never take them down 👻 #halloweenyearround

4. Last year, I really enjoyed the tagged

5. Funkos, Legos, & jigsaw puzzles (although I have quite a few that have a bookish theme)

6. Magnetic bookmarks, miniature books, & socks (socks count, right? I mean I need cool, bookish, comfy socks to read, so therefore socks must count as a bookish item 😆)

I love Autumn in general - the vibrant colors, the apple harvest, playing in the fallen leaves, baking, carving jack-o-lanterns, reading spooky stories, and trick-or-treating.

It's extremely rare for me to read seasonally, oddly enough Ray Bradbury seems to have become my favorite seasonal author. Not as impressive as Something Wicked This Way Comes, which I think of as a fall book and would read any time of year, but just absolutely delightful & a quick read. It's a shame I didn't read October Country. Maybe next year.
(Side note: My macabre heart longs for horror books all year long, I don't think of them as seasonal)
