I am posting one book per day from my extensive, and ever growing, TBR shelves. Some are old and some are new, some were gifts and some I don't remember why I bought them.

Stand: Soul Survivors | Stephen King, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

So happy I picked this back up to read again. This volume is basically the group walking towards finding Mother Abigail and the trials and tribulations they go through to get there. Graphics are amazing and of course the story is as well.

I think this author just isn‘t for me because I‘ve bailed on both books I‘ve tried. Oh well. #LitsyTOB24

Ruthiella I like Awad but I‘m always a little relieved to find an author I don‘t jive with because that‘s now a bunch of books I don‘t want/have to read. 2h

Mehso-so

A fairly standard post-apocalypse zombie comic, nothing you won't have seen before. It's not without a certain bleak charm, though why anybody wanted to adapt it as a TV show is beyond me, as there's no plot and no characterisation, and nothing to distinguish it within the genre. Not awful, but so-so.

Sorry for any outdated terms on display; I gather from this second edition's introduction, some of these essays are from the 90s or earlier.

Love the idea that as early as the 1980s, slasher films were part of the conversation around distinguishing sex from gender and maybe even opening the floor to gender fluidity, even while the author is careful to acknowledge the non-progressive aspects of how women were traditionally treated in them.
Her Body, Himself: Gender in the Slasher Film by Carol J. Clover is my favourite essay so far in this collection.

"...gender is theater." YES. ??

I‘m doing a pop-up book club at the library for the eclipse in April. Where I live, we are in the path of totality so it‘s going to be pretty cool.
What better book to celebrate an eclipse than Dolores Claiborne, lol #IYKYK

A House With Good Bones | T. Kingfisher

I really enjoyed this book. Kingfisher's humor is just my style, and although it's not quite as creepy as I would prefer (not as many shivers down my spine as I was hoping for), it's creepy enough. I do like the theme of children contorting themselves trying to please their parents and the way that love can get distorted by need.

An intense and terrifying read.
It‘s Summer in the book, but this gloomy winter picture accutately sums up the mood of the book.
