This was a good read, I will admit I wasn‘t expecting it be so sexy (it‘s not over the top or too much, I just didn‘t anticipate it) 😶‍🌫️ I‘m intrigued enough to definitely continue with “First Frost” 👍

My #scarathlon 2022 watch list! I‘m not a horror movie person, but a particular kind of scary is ok. 😂 I was in high school when the first Scream came out and I fell in love with the franchise, so it will be fun to revisit them! I was really bummed to see that the new “Wednesday” TV series doesn‘t come out until 11/23. That‘s not very spooky of you, Netflix. What are you watching this spooky season?

Didn't realize I had another of Claribel's books in my library and decided I had to get through it now, it was such a nice read! I love books about family and friendship and when you add spooky elements like ghosts and witches, it's only better! Loved the use of Spanish, esp at the start where it was heavier

The Rules of Magic | Alice Hoffman

This was such an interesting exploration of how Franny and Jet came to be the Aunts we know in “Practical Magic.” Heartbreaking at every turn, yet still sweet and life-affirming. The inclusion of Dickenson‘s quote “unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality” feels especially poignant.

1. Living in our world and finding yourself in a surreal dreamlike situation all of a sudden - with no idea how you slipped into it, whether what you experience is real or not or what may happen next.
Pure wonder. Or, as somebody once said about Haruki Murakami's books: 'It's like reading a dream'.
2. 🔼
3. Oh yes! I like the dreamlike sensation of strange occurrences & not knowing what's happening next...

Yuki_Onna ... Continued:
The tagged book has some magical realism as promised in the synopsis - I surely hope so as I'd like to put this one on my #October #Scarathlon2022 and #Bookspin lists of #spookyreads ...

White Apples | Jonathan Carroll

First book read second in the Vincent Ettrich series. Another story about tricking life, death and Chaos. Making my way through Jonathan Carroll‘s books but not sure if I‘ll finish them all by the end of the year, but I think I‘ve completed my collection of his hard to find books, and sometimes spending too much 💸

This was exactly what it said on the tin (blurb): Bonkers characters, adventurous journeys to Constantinople, a bit of magical realism, a love story.

Thanks for bringing the book to my attention, @RaeLovesToRead.

Definitely recommend reading it, @TrishB @julieclair.

Deblovestoread I love that cover and it sounds great! 2w
TrishB In my basket! Will have to wait until payday! 2w
