#ReadSpooky2022 @teebe
Perfectly written story. There was a tension throughout the story (what will happen next) and a creepiness, not scary but creepy - Merricat and Constance and Uncle are a family that loves one another but must work around each others psychological issues (see below for the rest)

bthegood Cousin Charles is unkind and has no idea how tight their world is and his aim to break into that world for money cannot be successful due to that, the towns people (even their friends) are cold, cruel and ignorant of how to deal with women with mental health issues - I listened to this (audiobook) and it was fantastic - could not stop listening - just a very good story!! 3w
Ann_Reads So glad you liked the story and the audio version! This is one of the books I'm considering listening to in October. As a comparison, have you read The Haunting of House Hill? (I haven't read any books by Jackson yet.) 3w
bthegood @Ann_Reads yes - I read Haunting of Hill House and liked it but I liked this one better - I really liked the audiobook too - I hope you enjoy it (not long about 6 hours I think). 🙂 3w

Ann_Reads @bthegood Thank you for the recommendation. 🙂 3w
bthegood @Ann_Reads I cannot respond to your posts that you tag me in until you accept my request 🙂 2w
Ann_Reads @bthegood Sorry about that. The requests don't show up on the web version of Litsy, which is what I usually use instead of the App. I just took my profile out of the 'private setting' as it just seems to be causing too many issues. Thanks for letting me know. 2w

-A story about best friends and possession- the 80s references and layout of the book (song titles, yearbook) takes you to a definite time and place, strengthening the story - it is about possession, friendship, love - it is funny, gory, scary, and touching - really good read - (growing up in the 80s did contribute to my complete enjoyment of this book but it's not a requirement to enjoy it)

The Hollow Ones | Guillermo Del Toro, Chuck Hogan

I enjoyed the concept and delivery - a man from the 1500s must capture the hollow ones (evil that inhabits humans as hosts to create chaos/death) - and two FBI agents help along the way (one in the 1960s and one present day) -

Another #BookSpinBingo book (and vacation was so packed with activity with family that it was worth not getting in many reading hours).
Make a great day everyone 🌞

LKK526 Trying to read My SummerDarlings which is pretty good so far. But having work done in kitchen. Men in and out of house and drilling and trying to keep my nosy cat Kuna out of kitchen while Cassie who hates strangers has disappeared. This is going to be a long day (edited) 4mo

I read this for #ReadSpooky2022 @teebe because Byatt is this month's author and I could not find any of her scary books at the library - this is well written just not a topic I am interested in - though I learned a lot -

#BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

Make it a great day for someone else today -

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!!! 4mo

This was a pretty decent gothic tale; creepy and atmospheric. I like how the story unfolded along three different timelines. #ReadSpooky2022

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cathythoughts I remember liking this one 👍🏻♥️ 4mo

I enjoyed this creepy story - I am surprised it is a children's book - as much as I like horror and creepy stories I think this would have been too much for me as a young child.
Finished for the April prompt of #ReadSpooky2022 @teebe
And another book finished for #MarvellousMay @Andrew65

Thanks for the tag @Eggs I have a garden - some flowers, tomatoes, peppers, stevia, mint - 🌻
Make a great day everyone - 🌞

Eggs Thanks for playing 🌺🪴🍅 (edited) 4mo
Andrew65 Doing great 👏👏👏 4mo
Linsy Definitely depends on the kid! And I think what happens when we categorize books based on the age of their protagonist. 4mo

Andrew65 @bthegood i love doing it. 😍 4mo
WJCintron Neil Gaiman is amazing!! I didn't like the movie, though. It's a well done film, but too dark for a kid's movie, I think. 4mo
bthegood @WJCintron I haven't seen it yet, but I already feel the book is too dark for kids - make a great day 🌞 4mo

So glad I finally read this! It‘s very different from the movie, which I knew going in, but still. I like both a lot! Also, special thanks to Mr. Gaiman for officially pulling me out of my slump. #ReadSpooky2022 @teebe

Took me awhile, but finally finished this last night. I liked the mythology of the creatures, but otherwise it was a middle of the road post-apocalyptic thriller for me. I started it in March so I‘m still gonna count it for that month‘s #ReadSpooky2022 @teebe
