#Screamathon @4thhouseontheleft #ScarePairs Week 3. #BookSpinBingo #DoubleSpin @TheAromaofBooks #NetGalley

There was so much I loved in this book, but then parts of it needed to be edited in order to make the flow better. My favorite part was the library! 💚

Overall it's a fun read about a girl who never quite fits in but who finally finds her family. The various witches and their powers were interesting and the world building was solid.

#Screamathon @4thhouseontheleft #ScarePairs Week 2

This author is becoming one of my favorites. In this book we have ghosts, folklore, a haunted house, and a town full of dark secrets.

The House acts as its own character drawing the story towards it and setting the pace as the mystery unfolds.

Perfect read for Halloween time! 👻

Finished the graphic novel the other day for #ScarePairs There are so many adaptations and I am loving them all. The 6 part BBC series is an interesting modern take on the classic. And there‘s even a musical! #Screamathon #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter #BookSpinBingo #Wickedathon #Spookoween +41 pts

Finished the #scarathlon2021 #teamhendrix buddy read and we watched the movie tonight. #screamathon #scarepairs

I remembered enjoying the movie when I first saw it several years ago. However I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the book and really enjoyed it. The friendship between R and M was one of my favorite things in the book and I loved seeing those moments in the movie. I may pick up the second book at some point too.

I listened to the book and it was excellent. I loved how convoluted the story was and the insight the reader was given into each character's mindset. The movie version I watched was from 1945 and they changed the story too much. I didn't enjoy it.

Susanita Have you seen the mini series from 2014? It‘s worth it for the Aidan Turner scenes if nothing else! 14mo
TheSpineView Great job! 👍📖 14mo
CaitZ @Susanita I didn't know about that version. I'll check it out. Thanks 14mo

I re-read this excellent King collection because it has been a long time since my first read. These 4 novellas are some of my favorites from King. I feel this book portrays the versatility of King's writing very well. I recommend it a lot to people wanting to read him for the first time.

I also watched Apt Pupil last night. I think it's a good adaptation of the book.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 14mo
