Reading outside before the heat becomes too much this morning. I never read this book as a child and I am finding it pretty interesting. At times it doesn‘t seem like a 100 year old book. And then the kids go and make friends with strangers and I chuckle to myself 😆 #strangerdanger wasn‘t a thing then

monalyisha I heard an E. Nesbit story read by Jane Curtin on “Selected Shorts” & I loved it so much! Ever since then, I‘ve been meaning to pick up one of her books (which I also missed as a child)... but you know how TBR lists go. 😉 I‘m thinking maybe “Five Children & It.” 🤔 1y
ReadingMeagan @monalyisha oh wow what a great narrator! This was my first E. Nesbit book, I found a copy for $6 at Chapters and couldn‘t pass that up. I‘ve never heard of “Five Children & It” but I‘m sure it will be charming like this one was 😊 1y
monalyisha @ReadingMeagan Strong love over here for “3rd Rock from the Sun.” When everyone was watching “30 Rock” & talking about it, I‘d get all excited for a second & then realize that my tv reference was 10 years old & decidedly NOT what they meant. 😅👽 1y

ReadingMeagan @monalyisha LOL I can totally see that happening to myself! I used to love 3rd Rock from the Sun too! The big giant head 🤣🤣🤣 1y
monalyisha @ReadingMeagan Every actor was so perfectly-cast. Now I want to watch it all over again. 😍 1y
Melissa_J I just took my dog for a walk before the extreme heat hits later this afternoon and holy cow is it ever hot already! I suspect my afternoon will be spent indoors enjoying the AC 🤣 1y
ReadingMeagan @monalyisha 👍👍😊 1y
ReadingMeagan @Melissa_J I know! I didn‘t even attempt to walk Dex this morning. He doesn‘t like the heat when it is 22C without any humidity. Today will be spent in front of fans or in a/c! 1y
tracey38 Ugh, the heat index here today isngoing to be between 102 and 109! I'm staying inside. (Well, don't have much choice at work. 😁) Glad you got to enjoy being outside for awhile. 1y

Every day leading up to Halloween, I'll be posting a two sentence horror story, saving the "more unsettling ones" for my Medium and Twitter feeds. If you enjoy trick-or-treating, I'll see you again tomorrow for another one of these twisted little licorices of fright. #shocktober #horrorween #writersoflitsy #7daysofhorror #flashfiction #horror #shortstory #strangerdanger #notagirlscout #spooktober #chills #run

I almost never catch up on challenges but there were a few from yesterday I didn't want to miss. #strangerdanger #hallowreads! I found this book disappointing. The earlier storyline with Ruth was weird and creepy but you couldn't quite figure out what kind of creepy. The later storyline with the long walking journey made you want answers about why, but the answers ended up being unsatisfactory and the niece character was annoying. ⭐️⭐️ 🙁

lovelybookshelf I was disappointed with this one, too. 😔 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @lovelybookshelf Boo! I'm sorry. So many people seemed to like it, right? 😕😕😕 2y
lovelybookshelf Yeah, the hype was unreal! This one got off on the wrong foot with me right from the start (with its descriptions of the foster kids in the house) and never redeemed itself. 2y

LyndseyReads Same! I liked things about it, but ultimately didn't get the hype. 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @LyndseyReads Yep! In looking back I realize I originally gave it 3 stars because there were moments I liked or felt should be appreciated, but other 3 star books on my list have been much better than this, so I had to downgrade it. 🙃 2y

Day 6 #hallowreads #strangerdanger

He has charm, is handsome, and intelligent. He married her for her inheritance. He will stop at nothing to get what he wants. When his wife‘s pregnancy seems to be the obstacle, he resorts to desperate measures. Sometimes you do not know the man you married.

#HallowReads #day6 #StrangerDanger When Autopsy Bliss invited the devil to come to Breathed, Ohio, Fielding Bliss never thought he'd appear. Then during the heatwave of that summer, a boy called Sal appears, claiming to be the devil, answering the invitation.Fielding takes him home where it's assumed he's just a runaway, but when word spreads and strange accidents happen, is this stranger exactly who he's claimed to be? Stranger danger indeed.🌞😈

Day 6: #strangerdanger

Don't make a choose your own adventure rookie mistake. Never accept stew from a stranger's cauldron. 😝

Recently finished “Frankenstein” and decided to watch the movie “The Bride of Frankenstein” last night. This is a scene when the monster visits a blind man who treats him like a new friend. And then two townsmen stop by and reveal that this stranger is a monster. #strangerdanger #hallowreads
