Day 3 of #adventrecommends : 24 books you think people should know about.

In 1998, Matthew Shepard, 21, was lured from a Wyoming bar by two men, savagely beaten, tied to a remote fence, and left to die — because he was gay. This is a series of 68 poems about his death, written from various points of views, including the fence he was tied to, the stars that watched over him as he was dying, the deer that kept him company, and Matthew himself.

TrishB That sounds so sad 💔 ☹️ 4d
Amiable @TrishB It‘s powerful and moving and — given that we have an administration in this country that is intent on rolling back protections for the LGBTQ community — vitally necessary. 😢 4d
TrishB Agree totally. I just don‘t know if I could read. I have stacked and see when emotionally ready. 4d

Amiable @TrishB I did cry throughout the majority of it . 4d
Amiable @Aimeesue My gosh, I did not know that when I picked this book for today‘s #adventrecommends ! How strange. And ...magical, almost. (edited) 4d
kspenmoll This looks like a lively tribute. So heartbreaking. 4d
TrishB I felt like the universe was telling me to buy!! So I have. 3d

The point of it all is to love friends completely and utterly, at their best and worst, and to love more than just the good things. It's about showing that you're willing to accept them for whatever they are, that they should not feel insecure or self-conscious in your presence... (from a piece by Arka Pain)


I'm not gonna lie I have a serious soft spot for really terrible books, I love reading books that are so bad they're almost good. (And by good I mean HORRIBLE) I think I love reading bad books because if something like this can get published, maybe I can also write a book one day! I don't even know where to start with this train wreck, it's full of clichés and bad writing.

Teen Study Bible, Revised (NIV) | Anonymous Anonymous

Has glossy pages throughout just to emphasize the homophobic passages and to defend, of all things, arranged marriage?

10/10 would give me feelings of self-loathing and drive me away from Christianity again

This is how I feel every year 🎃

I think the only appropriate sentiment is: Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh! With muppet arms, of course.

Hey #TeamSlaughter!!

Our judge @MrBook has tallied up the points, and the amounts are in. #TeamSlaughter wasn‘t too far behind #TeamStoker, and all in all I think both teams are doing SCARY good! A special shout out to @LokiDokey @overtheedge and @britt_reads who were the top 3 contributors! Woohoo!!! 🥳🥳

The fun is just beginning, so lets keep racking in those points and we‘ll see which team comes out on top next week! Go #TeamSlaughter!

Bookwormjillk We‘ll catch up next week! 2mo

Lizpixie @Clwojick I‘m now up to 31 & still counting. We‘ll kick their butts next week🥊 2mo
SaturnDoo @Bookwormjillk We will...I'm on fall break for a week starting at 1 PM today 😂😁😊 2mo
Clwojick @Bookwormjillk @Lizpixie @SaturnDoo That‘s the spirit! We‘ve got this! I hurt my back this morning, but on the plus side... I‘m going to rest and read Halloween comics. Always gotta look at the bright side, right? 😂 2mo
MoonWitch94 Do I need to put the point totals in my post?? I‘ve seen some of our teammates do that & I wasn‘t sure if that was true or not? @Clwojick 2mo
overtheedge @Clwojick My point total is different than the one posted. I must be scoring them wrong. Do we get one point per movie watched, or 2?? Hope your back feels better! 2mo
FantasyChick What @MoonWitch94 said 😂 I have been trying to post but haven't been keeping track of points. Weekend is coming up and I have a whole list of Halloween movies to watch so expect to be bombarded for the next 2 days!!! 2mo
Bookwormjillk I hope your back feels better @Clwojick 2mo
Clwojick @MoonWitch94 I‘ve been tracking them all. You just need to tag me in your posts. 2mo
Clwojick @overtheedge 1 point for watching the movie, plus 1 participation point for posting 😉 2mo
Clwojick @FantasyChick I‘ve got it all tracked, so long as you tag me in the posts. 🖤 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Clwojick thank you for clarifying! Go Team Slaughter 🔪🎃🕯🍂🖤🍁🧡📚 2mo
overtheedge @Clwojick if we get 2 points a movie my total should be 50. 2mo
Lizpixie @Clwojick is MrBook counting the participation points as well? 2mo
Clwojick He‘s double checking our tallies, and posting them as judge! 🙃 2mo
Clwojick @overtheedge I‘ll double check my points, but this is only as of midnight my time, last night. 🙌🏻 2mo
hes7 Maybe this has been asked already, but do movies have to be “scary,” or can they just be “Halloween”? 2mo
Clwojick @hes7 Both count! Halloween theme, scary, Thrillers, horror, etc. 2mo
overtheedge @Clwojick Its probably me, not tagging you!!. It's no big deal to me, personally, I'm thinking of team points....I will be sure to tag you in my posts! 2mo

Happy Mean Girls Day! Did you know that Tina Fey adapted the concept for Mean Girls from Queen Bees and Wannabes? I'm so glad she did - it was ambitious and it paid off, this is still one of my favourite films of all time! #October #MeanGirls #Trivia #FunFact
