The rest of my books from the birthday haul at the library!!! The girls wanted me to read lemon meringue pie murder first (pretty sure it's because it's yellow.....). I sincerely thought about it. Then picked The Girl in the Green Silk Gown instead. I miss the characters from the first one.... And I don't think I'm quite ready for another bout with Hannah Swenson and my version of a murder mystery sitcom....

Beautiful story about a man's love for his house. Lovely descriptions. Love the way it used some ghost story tropes and then inverted others. #WinterGames #SlayBells #HolidayRead 20 pts @MidnightBookGirl @StayCurious @Clwojick

Okay. Lots of people are mad because Gaiman's name is listed first on this collection and this story is the shortest in the book. As in one page. As in originally written on a Christmas card. I don't care. It's dark and brilliant and I loved it. It's so so dark. You've been warned. #WinterGames #SlayBells #HolidayRead 20 pts @MidnightBookGirl @StayCurious @Clwojick

Loved this short story about a man who is haunted by himself. What makes a ghost? What makes a person dead? Can we be dead while still technically alive? What does it look like to be dead? What actions make us so? #WinterGames #SlayBells #HolidayRead 20 pts @MidnightBookGirl @StayCurious @Clwojick

Victorian ghost story told to girls by their maid. The story is intentionally unresolved to mimic a true story where one never really knows what is real and what imagined. Why can only some people see the shadow? What effect does the shadow have? Fun but not my favorite. #WinterGames #HolidayRead #SlayBells 20 pts @MidnightBookGirl @StayCurious @Clwojick

Good story with lush descriptive details of a woman apparently living alone in a cottage and not doing well. The question is who is the narrator and what has happened to him?

Another book read during 3rd week & part of the 4th week of HP Magical Winter Readathon. Another company during those situations. This is an ok to so-so book. I really enjoyed some stories but others were not quite good or scary.However, I really loved❤️the way stories were written, that Victorian style👌regardless the end of the stories. So I will say that in general is a so-so book but if you like this style, read it👍3⭐️Thanks @Chrissyreadit 😘

Overall, I really enjoyed this collection, which surprised me since the first story was a dud for me. Some were spooky, some fun, some magical, and some brimming with the Christmas spirit! #WinterGames @Clwojick @StayCurious #SlayBells #HolidayRead #24B42020 (21pts)
