“There are things in that paper that nobody knows but me, or ever will.”

“I never feel guilty eating anything.”
This recepie book inspired by the show has been on my TBR for ages.

“It would be a hard life, but it would be theirs alone. Here at the world's edge, far from everything familiar and safe, they would build a new home in the wilderness and do it as partners.”

Leo tells himself for a long time that he‘s just #paranoid when it comes to his best friend‘s son, Mark. Something is or isn‘t off about Mark, and Leo can‘t figure out if it is all in his head or if something darker is going on.


Mdargusch Stacking! Besides the beautiful cover this book gets great reviews!❤️ (edited) 6mo

Are these characters #paranoid or is this “evil house” really haunted?? I don‘t know, but I‘m determined to get through this #darguschfamilymarkupbookclub pick once and for all after having little to no reading time lately!!

vivastory Sorry to hear about the lack of reading time! Excellent book pick Dargusch clan 👏🤘 6mo

Call me #Paranoid, but I‘m not sure I‘d trust this nanny with my children. 😆😆

I know I‘m in the minority about this book, but it really gave me the creeps and made me #paranoid about bumps in the night!

LeahBergen I have the first two books in this series. I really must get to them one day. 🙄 6mo
vivastory I agree, this one was really unsettling 6mo
Mdargusch I‘d be interested to see what you think @LeahBergen 6mo

Touted as #paranoid fiction, this is the fictional account of the presidential win for Charles Lindbergh. Obviously, he never ran for the presidency, but suppose he did. Having once called Hitler “a great man,” what would the world have been like should Lindbergh have been elected in 1940?

A co worker lent me this book unsolicited years and years ago. I wasn‘t at all interested in reading it, but wouldn‘t you know, I LOVED it. #anglophileapril

Kimberlone I‘ve never read Phillip Roth but he is one of those mid century “white, male” authors that I‘ve been meaning to get to for a long time. Somehow I missed out on reading him while doing my English degree in college. 6mo
vivastory Excellent choice! 6mo
Mdargusch Sounds fascinating! Who was the co worker? (edited) 6mo

Reviewsbylola Paul Goodburn at L&L. @Mdargusch 6mo

Christinak @cinfhen @Reviewsbylola I read this in HS in the 80s and things like the tele-screens were science fiction you had to imagine the technology- when I reread this last fall it was terrifying because now much of it is science fact. A very different read! 6mo
Mdargusch I guess I should read this someday? 6mo
emilyhaldi Good one 👍🏻 6mo
Cinfhen That would be interesting to see ... 6mo
