Now THIS is a “Halloween Read” if there ever was one! Why, it even takes place around Halloween and, (even while being Middle Grade), is so atmospheric that I could nearly smell the dried leaves & cornfields and the PERFECT amount of spooky and filled with unexpected surprises while still feeling “cozy”. It reminded me a bit of watching a beloved Halloween movie. Made even better with how I read it on a cold & rainy October day.

Thornhill | Pam Smy

Getting my Halloween on! 👻 I just breezed through this MG part-graphic novel part-diary novel in which two timelines, two formats and two lonely girls converge. Mary, in 1982, is a lonely orphan at Thornhill Institute whose troubles stem from something far worse than ghosts... Ella, in 2017, moves into a new house near the abandoned Thornhill but is sure that someone still lives there...
It's sweet, sad, creepy, beautiful 💔

Sace I think this was a #blameitonlitsy purchase I made last year (or the year before?) I should try to find my copy. 21h

Kalalalatja Sounds interesting! 18h
Clare-Dragonfly Ooh, I don‘t usually like dual timelines like this but everything else sounds exactly up my alley. I‘ll have to give it a try! 14h
ephemeralwaltz @Clare-Dragonfly one is told solely through illustration and the other through diary entries so it makes it all the more gripping! 😘 13h

The book was well writing and very imagenatory. This book is very good book to expand your mind to and believe and things that you have never believed in; like frogs that talk and pigs that fly. I will not spoil the book for you , but if you love fantasy and want to live it through a book just like those fairy tales that your mom read to you? Then this is your book .

I‘m enjoying this #chunkster, and the little illustrations at each chapter heading are sweet. Reading this has convinced me to add a reread of His Dark Materials to my TBR for early next year.

I realized yesterday I‘m reading two books at the moment with “Secret” in the title: this and The Secret Wisdom of the Earth. Interesting 🧐 book coincidence.

AmyG How is Igor doing? Been thinking of you. 24h
Soubhiville @AmyG he‘s still not eating. But he doesn‘t seem to feel too bad, surprisingly. We‘ll go back to the vet for more fluids this afternoon and see what they recommend next. I think it‘ll be a more GI focused blood panel and an ultrasound. I wish we knew what‘s wrong. 23h
Soubhiville @AmyG oh! I just got a message from Maelstrom (my Mr)- Igor is eating! Yay! On a different note- I sent you a package yesterday. Be on the lookout for it by Friday. 💜 23h

Chrys My little dog had to have several teeth out this summer and it took a day for her to start eating again, hopefully Igor was just still in recovery and his appetite will pick up now 23h
AmyG Oooo I am so happy he is eating. That‘s huge. Let‘s hope t was just a teeth issue. And thank you 😘 21h
Hooked_on_books I‘m so glad he‘s eating! That‘s such a good sign. Fingers still crossed. 🤞🏼 15h

All's Faire in Middle School | Victoria Jamieson

This was a great book! The illustrations were awesome and the story was just as good! Imogene was homeschooled but decided to go to middle school. Her and her family work at the Ren Faire and its a great contrast between her acting in the fair and her trials and tribulations in school (ones we all had to deal with... shudder). All in all a great read and highly recommended from school age and up.
4 stars

Not being very creative today for #chillingphotochallenge because I already used a book from this series. This is the first in the MG series, but the cloak is a little scary (or maybe it‘s just me). The cloak sucks people in and traps them. #black #scarathlon #teamslaughter @Clwojick

TheBookAddict Such a cutie. Mine is a big boy and still very much a baby, even though he‘ll be 2 in a few months, and just can‘t stay still under a blanket. 😔 🤦🏽‍♀️ 1d
