So fun to revisit this childhood fave with Sid. As with all short story collections this is a bit uneven but there are some real bangers in here- namely The Giant‘s Bath, The Devil and the Corner Grocer, and The Pumpkins of Witch Crunch. These are beautifully told, imaginative stories, of worlds like our own but just a little bit different and more magical. Stories that twist and turn and go where you never quite expect them to. Such fun.

Margaret has fallen in love with a Victorian house that a great deal. Of course, the house is haunted, and boy-howdy are there ghosts! There‘s even a dead serial killer in the basement. What makes this such a clever story, is that Margaret is able to cope by applying the skills she has learned surviving years of domestic violence. Her husband earns his just deserts in the basement. There‘s a great, powerful women-united-against-violence ending!

Texreader Not my genre nowadays but your review convinced me. Stacked! 2d
CaitlinR @Texreader There‘s a lot of humor too. Hope you enjoy the book! 2d

I watched the show True Blood years ago and I‘ve had this book on my Kindle ever since. I finally decided to read it just to get it done but folks, it was bad. I don‘t even really know how this got published let alone made into a TV show. Just badly written. And Sookie is even more annoying in the book than she was in the TV show which I didn‘t think was possible. 🧛/5

JamieArc I read these while in grad school but they were perfect for that because I needed fast-paced stories, not necessarily good writing 😂 2d
jen_the_scribe I read them at some point in my early 20‘s and loved the whole series (except the final book, it felt rushed, I remember that vividly). But I do think I would find them annoying now lol. 2d
julesG What a coincidence, I just wrote about Sookie Stackhouse in my #wondrouswednesday post. Like @JamieArc I read them at a time when I was looking for fast-paced stories and wasn't interested in how good the writing was. Also agree with @jen_the_scribe, I could have lived without the last book. It was rushed and ruined more of the series than it answered still open questions. 2d
LiseWorks Loved the show, I did read one of the books, don't remember it being that bad 2d

Lori befriends terminally ill Ms. Beacham and vows to find her brother Kenneth for her. The usual characters and a few new ones (each book continues with some of the new characters from the last one). This series is a light, feel good read for me. I forget the stories soon after I have read them, but remember the main characters and enjoy the story as I'm reading it!

Make a great day everyone 😊

PaperbackPirate I was actually just reading The Haunting of Hill House today and she said she had dimity curtains. Even though I‘ve read an Aunt Dimity book I didn‘t know dimity was a thing and had to look it up. 3d
TheSpineView Well done! 3d

I am by no means a big horror girl, but I was intrigued by this collection of holiday horror stories. As with most anthologies, I really liked some and there were some I just didn‘t get. But overall, I enjoyed it!

My daughter‘s favorite book/movie is The Shining. So for her recent birthday her best friend got her this cool book nook. I‘m not that familiar with them, but the attention to detail is incredible (even down to the tiny typewritten sheets on the floor). 🖤

Do y‘all have book nooks as well? Anyone want to share? I‘d love to see!

kspenmoll What a great concept! New to me! 5d
robinb @kspenmoll I know! I‘ve obviously been out of the loop. 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 5d

Rivers of London Volume 3: Black Mould | Ben Aaronovitch, Andrew Cartmel

Such a good series! In this volume, our detectives are investigating black mould that seems to have a life of its own and makes people crazy. Some of the characters from the first two volumes are in it but not as much as the two detectives. Great art and really good story. Looking forward to seeing what happens with the next volume!

MissHel This series does not get as much love as it deserves! 5d

This was a really solid and fun read. My only criticism is how the exorcism itself kind of... fizzled out towards the end?? and we sort of cut away from it which was disappointing and didn't feel very thought out. Aside from that it was overall a very good book, would definitely recommend it to fans of 80s horror movies, especially the B ones.
