I‘ve become a big fan of Christina Henry. This book was very suspenseful. I‘m not sure that the creature was the worst monster in the book. +336 #TeamHendrix #Scarathlon2021 #LMPBC #GroupT #Screamathon #spookoween #thrilloween #vampathon

There‘s just the tiniest bit of the supernatural in this book and the mystery is very good! +556 #TeamHendrix #Scarathlon2021 #Screamathon #spookoween #littenlisten #readlikehellathon #thrilloween #murdertheyreadathon #spooktober #disneyvillianreadathon #vampathon

Earlier this month I read the first 4 stories in this collection and just didn't finish. Maybe next year I'll read for more. The title story, Perchance to Dream was good, but the other three were just OK. They feel a bit formulaic, so it's prongs built good to not read them all in one sitting.

Mehso-so

Imagine being a supernatural of the vampire, witch or demon variety, and having people telling you what to do, always. I can't imagine vampires would want to live forever with this sort of bureaucratic bullshit dominating their lives. I listened to the audiobook. The narrator was adept at the various accents but the weird way she drags out her "twooo"s grates. A book this large would benefit from having a second narrator of the male variety. ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick The underlying premise was good, but this was entirely too long. This falls into nearly insta-love territory. Wine, manuscripts, yoga, food...I think the only foods I'm not certain Matthew eats are tacos, pizza, and quince. While I'm on Matthew, I did not get his appeal. He's controlling and I think he thrives on crisis. (1500 years on Earth might do that to you) Diana was boring. I understand why she doesn't embrace her magic, ⬇️ 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick but considering how the supernaturals didn't trust the other species, you'd think her aunt would have insisted she learn something. The Bishop house was fun, I liked Hamish, and I am intrigued by the events that are leading to book 2. I haven't decided if I hate myself enough to continue with the series. 😁 2y

aperfectmjk I agree about the second narrator. It's such a long book, but I guess because of how the chapters are written it would have been hard to switch up narrators. 2y
DieAReader @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick 👏🏻 I completely agree with your opinion on this one. Took me forever to read it & I disliked more than I liked. That being said, I procrastinated & dreading starting book 2. I was “inspired” to give it some attention yesterday & can say that so far (chapter 11/42) & I‘m enjoying it. There is a lot of character banter that I‘ve really gotten a kick out of. I like it much better than the 1st (as it stands now)😉 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Squidget Good to hear that book 2 seems better from someone with similar feelings about book 1. I think I'll hold off until January and try to limit my listening to 1-2 hours daily so I'm not burnt out by it. This might be a case where I'd enjoy the show more if I gave it a try. 2y

The October #ThatsClassic pick. Some of the book feels repetitive, but still a good early gothic horror. Perhaps it's knowledge of how it all pans out, but it didn't feel very suspenseful. As others mentioned before, it's not exactly a female friendly world we're viewing but that's how women were regarded in the 1890s. Thanks for the push to reread it 25 years later @Annie1215
