Bailedbailed

I wanted so badly to like this book bc my husband is a big Bradbury fan, but I just couldn‘t do it. The writing is clever and so descriptive, it‘s fun to read. But the fantastical plot just couldn‘t keep me engaged. Still, I made it over halfway so I‘m counting this for #popsugar18 #abookaboutorsetonhalloween 🎃

Bonus points for the author picture in the back! 🙌🏻🖤

tricours I‘ve tried and bailed on the audiobook twice. 14mo
Reviewsbylola That author photo is AMAZING. 14mo
Reviewsbylola Also I was going to try this for the Halloween prompt. So glad I didn‘t! Your husband has horrible taste in books. First Lord of The Flies now this. 14mo
emilyhaldi I know @Reviewsbylola LotF is terrible too 😝 14mo

A very creepy October round of books I picked up today from the library 👻 thinking about reading the tagged book for #popsugar18 #abookaboutorsetonhalloween 🎃 but NOT looking forward to it... alternative suggestions welcome!!!

JillR My husband is reading your tagged book right now as we travel home on the train...we were just saying what a great title. I only tried one Ray Bradbury though and couldn‘t get on with it so bailed... 14mo
emilyhaldi It is a great title!! @JillR how‘s your husband liking it so far?? My husband is a huge Bradbury fan so i would like to give him a try ☺️ 14mo
JillR @emilyhaldi he only managed a chapter or so but says he‘s enjoying it so far... 14mo
Reviewsbylola A new post!! Yay 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Curious to see how you like the Trembley. The Ann Rule is fantastic! 14mo

Loved the 80's setting-gave me a Stranger Things vibe. Beautiful artwork.

Love love LOOOOOOVED this book. It was surprisingly funny and charming and sweet and smart and witty. I ate this up in a day and can't wait to read/listen to Leah's story soon. Highly recommend! ❤💙💚💛💜

GypsyKat I didn‘t know this was a Halloween book, I‘m adding it to my October TBR right now! 😃🎃👻 2y
LoverofLit @GypsyKat It's more set in fall than anything but a large portion of it happens the week before and after Halloween so I'm totally counting it! 2y
GypsyKat @LoverofLit Awesome! Sounds perfect. It was on my TBR list anyway, so I love that I have a month it will fit in nicely. 😊 2y
LoverofLit Happy to help! @GypsyKat 👍💕 2y

Three challenge prompts with one read!
And what a great listen it was....
Hugh Fraser (aka Hastings, even though he does not feature in this story) - is just the most delightful narrator.... I found myself smiling throughout.... Poirot‘s pomposity and Ariadne‘s sharp tongue are a lot of fun...

DGRachel I didn‘t realize he was the actor who played Hastings!!!! He‘s my favorite Agatha Christie narrator of the 5 I‘ve heard. So good! 2y
JoeStalksBeck I just listened to this! Great narrator! 2y
AliceCastle Hugh Fraser is a great narrator and also writes his own thrillers! Haven‘t read yet but I‘ve got them on my kindle 2y
KarenUK @AliceCastle oh I didn‘t know that! Thanks for the info 👍💕 2y
