When Things Get Dark: Stories inspired by Shirley Jackson | Benjamin Percy, Joyce Carol Oates, Elizabeth Hand, Karen Heuler

I really enjoyed the Bookish First Bingo card, it did a good job of stretching me to find new authors. I'm not done with the tagged book yet, but I've been loving it!!! This is my first time reading Stephen Graham Jones, but I am definitely coming back for more! Can't wait to get to My Heart Is A Chainsaw, especially since it was almost a pick for #fantasticstrangelings and I usually love Jenny's picks. 🕸️👻🎃

I LOVED this book! It was full of everything Gothic that I love — creepy house, freaky wallpaper, unexplained happenings — and some reveals later on that I was not expecting. Would definitely recommend! I love how Garcia took the ubiquitous English Gothic novel and twisted it into her own creation. And I loved all the mushroom stuff! 🍄

KristiAhlers I‘m glad you enjoyed this one. I personally wasn‘t a fan but I love hearing what others take away from books I‘ve read. 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks It‘s on my shelf! 🖤🖤🖤 1mo

“Little red riding hood is a ... proto-slasher.“

Grady Hendrix just said this in an interview and it blew may brains out! He was talking about how our culture is fixated on dead women and it rang so true. What is that about??

I strongly suspect I‘m heading for a bail on this one. I‘m about 1/3 in and I‘m just not invested. If I do bail, I think I‘ll likely bail on #fantasticstrangelings as well. I think Jenny‘s picks just aren‘t my taste. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Soubhiville I actually canceled my subscription a couple months ago. There were several in a row I didn‘t care for, so I decided to wait for reviews and picking up the books later if they appealed. 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
Soubhiville Also, hi girls! Looks like you‘re having a cozy evening 🙂🐶 2mo
Hooked_on_books @Soubhiville I think you made a good choice. My track record with her picks just isn‘t great. I‘m going to see what November is and decide then. And the ladies say hi back! After this afternoon nap, they had a nice walkies and Bindi got to run! 2mo

I can't resist a #bookface!

Today's reading! I've picked this up so many times and lost my place in the first chapter over and over again, but now that I sat down and tried a couple chapters I'm hooked! 🥀

Yay received some goodies! Sistersong (tagged) was this month‘s #FantasticStrangelings book club pick, and I am ready for book 2 in the Devious series…

I received a super exciting package from @LibrarianRyan … assumed it was #hhs, the only one I‘m waiting for… but was there a mistake re your tag, Ryan? You wrote #ANS … I think that‘s your swap, which I didn‘t sign up for this year Bc of time limitations 😔 … let me know! 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

LibrarianRyan No you are correct. I did a post when I mailed everything that you should have been tagged in that payed out the correct swaps because I was dumb and labeled 10 packages the same way. For some reason when I tag people on desktop Litsy they do not get it. Ugggghhh🤦🏼‍♀️ 2mo
Avanders @LibrarianRyan oooh yeah I didn‘t get notice of that… lol!!! That‘s hilarious that you labeled them all #ans 😂😂 2mo
Avanders @wanderinglynn (got my #hhs 😁) 2mo
wanderinglynn Yay! 🙌🏻🧡🎃 2mo

This book was so magical!!! It gave me Practical Magic and Stardust vibes in places with a strong dose of The Book of Speculation -- but is really its own thing! Cannot recommend highly enough if you're looking for something magical with strong story and lore but don't want to start a new series. 🔮🌿

Linsy Jenny Lawson put it perfectly: “Like an Ecuadorian Grimm fairy tale that takes place in modern times and also has a fair amount of cursing and booze and ghosts and should be read at midnight around a camp fire.“ ❤❤❤ 2mo

AutumnRLS I got this for my birthday, but just listening to a review about this book gave me goosebumps and had me jumping at shadows in my own home. Still, I loved his last book so one day I intend to brave it. 2mo
