#GhostTown

Ghost Story | Peter Straub
post image

When a #beautifulstranger comes to Millburn, the place becomes a literal #ghosttown as a once dormant horror terrorizes the imaginations of its residents, with special ire directed towards a group of old friends who form a club of sorts to trade stories of the supernatural (some of which might be true).
Not Madonna pictured here, but I was listening to this old favorite and it seemed to fit. 😱😨
@Cinfhen

Cinfhen Definitely getting Madonna vibes 👍🏻🎶🥰 1mo
twohectobooks I‘ve been wanting to read this book for years but keep not getting around to it 😳 1mo
Kimbono Ooooh, listening to Down by the Water and reading Ghost Story makes for a creepy pairing. I like it! 4w

Billypar @Cinfhen Right? Seemed like this album cover worked for both performer and book. 4w
Billypar @twohectobooks I liked it: I picked it up for last year's Halloween season and it was exactly what I was looking for in a horror novel. 4w
Billypar @Kimbono That would be a great pairing! Last night I was listening to it while reading E.M. Forster's Howards End, which doesn't work quite as well 😁 4w

Not #ghosttown but etown in Boulder,.CO. Came to hear a concert. Not Madonna but Valerie June who was AMAZING! Her voice is out-of-this-world!

The Wizard of Oz | Salman Rushdie

The Wicked Witch of the West is much scarier in the movie, due to Margaret Hamilton‘s iconic performance. And I suppose a witch might enjoy living in a #ghosttown #characteryoulovetohate #gratefulreads #illgetyoumypretty #movember

Cinfhen Well done 👍🏽and yes, Wicked Witch was the stuff of nightmares 😬😱 1mo
OriginalCyn620 Nice! 👌🏻 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Great choice!!! 4w
GidgetsTreasures75 @rubyslippersreads I just read that the director of The Wizard of Oz edited out a lot of Ms. Hamilton‘s scenes because he felt they were too scary for children to see on the big screen! Can you imagine what he must of left out? That witch scared me for years!!! 4w

The Graveyard Book | Neil Gaiman

#MOvember
The graveyard in Old Town is definitely a #Ghosttown with all its denizens living as a community of ghosts & other supernaturals & raising the human boy, Bod.

I love this book & the audio read by the author is even better. 👻👻👻🖤📚

Texreader I loved this book. I also want the graphic novel. Now it sounds like I need to get the audiobook too! 1mo
Laura317 I‘ve got the audio and the graphic. I think this is one of my very favorite books. 1mo
Cinfhen I‘ve not done well with Neil G. Maybe I should give this audio book a shot?? 1mo

#Movember #GhostTown I'm sure ghost pirates come from ghost towns, right? 😂
@Cinfhen

Cinfhen I would think so!!! 👻👻👻👻 1mo
Velvetfur For sure! Ghost pirates sail their ghost ships out of ghost towns 😂👻 1mo
Bookwomble Hodgson is one of my favourite authors 😊 If you like The Ghost Pirates, you might like to give The Boats of the Glenn Carrig a go, too. 1mo
Nute Girl, please! There is no more definite conclusion than that!👻👍🏽😂 1mo

Enter, Night | Michael Rowe
post image

Both are TBR. Here's the description of Amatka from an online article:
"The eponymous city...is one of four colonies, a wintry, agricultural commune that grows fungus for sustenance. No one talks about the fifth colony, the one that was lost so long ago.."
I was immediately intrigued by Rowe's "Enter, Night" when I heard it described as a Canadian 'Salems Lot. #ghosttown #MOvember @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Enter night immediately made me think of Metallica 🎶Exit, light
Enter, night
Take my hand
We're off to never-never land

vivastory @Reggie I noticed your review when I was looking through the posts after I posted this. I'm hoping to get to it soon. I found out about it through one of Adam Casares' book recommendation videos on YouTube. 4w

DAY 10 #GhostTown | Went for a 3-mile run this morning and the greenway was a ghost town. It‘s a nice, sunny 50°F out. Where was everyone? ??‍♀️ Really enjoying this Flea autobiography so far. His narration is perfect and was a good distraction from my slow, terrible run.

@Cinfhen

LauraBeth This looks like a great place to run! 1mo
britt_brooke @LauraBeth It‘s great! We are lucky to live near 2 greenways, so I alternate between them. This one runs behind our library. 😍 1mo
Cinfhen I forgot this audio released!!! Thanks for the reminder 1mo

britt_brooke @LauraBeth So perfect! 😆👏🏻 1mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen Yes ma‘am! Yesterday. I didn‘t even know it existed until @Liberty mentioned it earlier in the week. 1mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I preordered it months ago. Still waiting for it to arrive! Have you got it yet? @britt_brooke so jealous you‘re already reading it! 1mo
britt_brooke @BarbaraBB Hope yours arrived soon! 🤞🏻 It‘s really good so far. 1mo
Cinfhen I was waiting for the audio @BarbaraBB and I just used an Audible credit to purchase it!!!! 1mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen Is he reading it himself??? 1mo
Cinfhen Yup!!!! He certainly is @BarbaraBB 😁😜🥰 1mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen oh man. I can‘t resist that! I‘m off to buy it 😍 1mo
Cinfhen 9 hours of Flea whispering in your ear @BarbaraBB 1mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen Lol 😂 I can‘t find it without subscribing to Audible. I think I‘ll stick with the paperback which will hopefully reach me soon! 1mo

In the second book of His Dark Materials, Will and Lyra arrive in the deserted #ghosttown Cittàgazze, where all the adults have fled the city, and left it to a band of kids and the Spectres ?

Also, who else is watching the BBC series of the first book? I saw the first episode on Monday, and I can‘t wait for the continuation tomorrow ?

Cinfhen Didn‘t know this was turned into a series!! Maybe #Netflix will pick it up 1mo
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen I watch it on HBO Nordic, so HBO might be a safer bet 👍 @TrishB I think it would work perfectly as a binge series. I‘m so sad I only get an episode a week! @LA_Mead @Jari-chan thank you! ☺️ 1mo
Cinfhen I‘ll see if HBO Israel offers it 😉sometimes they surprise me!!! 1mo
