I loved Goosebumps when I was a kid and I‘ve been wanting something a little lighter to read lately. I figured I‘d take on the goosebumps series and read the ones I loved and finally read the ones I never got around to. #rlstine #goosebumps #horror #juvenile #ebook #libby

This captivating and enchanting story has a timeless feel. It has a fairy-tale within a ghost story, with likeable characters, that tells of second chances and living a life without regrets. Fans of Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away will enjoy this, as it‘s written by the same author whose other book - The Marvelous Village Veiled In Mist - inspired the popular animated work.

My last push on "The Mirror of My Heart" (which makes it sound like a chore, which it isn't) fueled by ends of stinky cheese I need to eat before they develop a hive mind! ???

Graywacke Book and food look wonderful 3mo
Cathythoughts 👌🏻 all good. I love olives. (edited) 3mo
Bookwomble @Graywacke @Cathythoughts The book is good 😊 And I love olives, too. I thought that with the cheese-hammering I was giving my arteries, the least I could do was dip my bread in olive oil rather than butter it! 😄 3mo

A fairytale within a ghost story, set in contemporary Japan—yet it feels timeless. The opening scene in this illustrated middle grade novel has a boy peeing out of his upper floor window so he doesn‘t have to negotiate the dark stairs and hallway to the bathroom. That‘s when he first spots the ghost girl. A charming tale about living with no regrets. Award-winning translation by Avery Fischer Udagawa.

“Kazu! Kazu!” my mom shouted. “Come in here, will you? Kiri-chan killed a mouse!”
I‘d been demoted from eldest son to catsitter. Kiriko saw this as a promotion for me, no doubt. Naturally our old house harboured mice. She enjoyed recreational hunting like royalty.

batsy Kiriko sounds like quite the character! 😼 4mo
Lindy @batsy Her behaviour is almost spooky in this story. I like the way the book designer included black cat cameos throughout. 4mo

What are the chances that I would read two books in one week about renegade congregations? The tagged middle grade book features a secret Buddhist cult, and I recently read The Books of Jacob, which is about a Jewish mysticism cult.
(Illustration is from the tagged book.)
