The Body Snatcher | Robert Louis Stevenson
post image
Mehso-so

I read ‘The Body Snatcher‘ in this. I‘m a long time fan of Jekyll and Hyde, so I was hoping for another creepy, semi supernatural story like that… but no. Body snatcher was very straightforward, no nonsense, predictable stuff. Okay, maybe the ending was a tiny bit supernatural, but nothing in the story had the same draw as J&H for me 🤷🏼‍♀️

This was my #doublespin pick for #bookspinbingo
Also #scarathlon #teamhendrix #wickedathon #screamathon

And I got some sweat treats, hot coco, and nail art stickers?!?!! @sprainedbrain you spoiled me with your #alterednightmareswap package 🧡🖤🧡 thank you so much!!! @LibrarianRyan

Just finished this and sent it out for the last round of #lmpbc Thank you ladies for all the gothic literature reads!

It was an interesting read, definitely different from my normal picks. I liked the rich writing, characters, moral dilemmas, and creepiness, but the structure was a little too loose for me. Kinda jumpy.

Also, with the spooky bits going on in it, it counts for #scarathlon2021 #teamhendrix #screamathon #wickedathon

This had such a different feel to it than Warm Bodies did. I loved that R was still snarky and had some real moments of zombie wisdom, but the story went places I never saw coming (and don‘t feel like it needed).

Anyway, this was my #buddyread for #teamhendrix #scarathlon2021. Also #RoaringWolf (Don‘t Judge) and #wickedathon and #screamathlon

Wow, I loved this book! It walked the line of real possession vs mental illness, and I loved the balance of different times (being in the past as it happened, and current time of the interview of what happened). I also adored the nerdy blog posts analyzing everything. I def have to read more by this author!

I really liked the writing in this book. I could feel how every word, phrase, and anecdote was chosen with precision to add up to something later. And it sure did. Some super creepy moments, but overall more weird than anything. Movie also did an excellent job adapting what happened (though with major differences)

I read this for #screamathon and watched the movie tie-in
I‘d also consider this R.I.P. for #RoaringWolf
Also #wickedathon

The Andromeda Strain | Michael Crichton
post image
Mehso-so

I expected this to be way better. It was slow, with little to no action, and read more like a technical manual than a suspense/thriller. Maybe it was good for it‘s time (1969)? I‘m willing to forgive things for being out dated, ohh boy the computers were, but there were still no characters to root for or even care about. And the ending… well… it felt like the author just wanted the book done too🧫🧬🥼

A teenager who caught her dad cheating, and who‘s parents are now divorced, no longer believes in love. Enter some magical realism so she can see the entire lifespan of a relationship when people kiss, and she‘s even more cynical… but she falls in love anyway.

It‘s cute, it‘s funny, it doesn‘t take itself too seriously. And the characters are wonderful, emotionally balanced, and insightful. Not my favorite genre, but well done

Reset: A Novel | Sarina Dahlan

So this had a really cool concept - memory wipe every 4 years to prevent prejudice/hate/war, but people who love each other want to stay together.

But it was very badly written. It‘s clunky, repetitive, characters are flat, random things happen to move the plot along.

Just, ugh, I so wanted this to be good. The idea is there, just needs better executing.

I never knew I needed such a book about Bigfoot, but I‘m so glad it exists and that I read it.

I loved the way this was mostly told through journal entries, but also incorporated interviews, documentaries, and other excerpts from radio shows and scientific articles. It gave the story an amazing fullness, let the reader anticipate what was going to happen, and backed up the natural progression of action by making everything seem possible 👣🌋🏡

AFrostCauseReads @TheAromaofBooks this was my #doublespin pick for September. It was also my #bookspin pick for august. I guess the universe really wanted me to read this one, lol 3mo

Maybe I was hoping for too much, since I know I‘ll discuss this with my own book club. But there just doesn‘t seem like there will be much to talk about. It‘s kinda just a light family mystery 🤷🏼‍♀️

Shadow and Bone | Leigh Bardugo
post image
Mehso-so

I like the concepts of the ‘small science‘ magic. I also like the main character. But some parts were pretty cringy to me, like having a 120 year old man manipulate a teenager to fall in love with him.

It was entertaining, it was easy to keep turning pages. I like to know what the kids are reading these days, ya know? (Or adults, nothing wrong with adults reading YA).

I watched the show right after. Yup, book was better ☀️

rjsthumbelina To be fair, Bardugo says that she didn't intend for him to be a heart throb. It's supposed to be an representation of an abusive relationship 🤷‍♀️ 3mo
AFrostCauseReads @rjsthumbelina Huh, didn't know that. I can see that from an outside perspective, but through Alina's POV there was no hesitation or turmoil to being with him until she realized he was the bad guy. Don't get me wrong, the book needed it for plot reasons, but it was very reminiscent of Twilight. The audience knows it's bad, but the character sure doesn't. Maybe that was her intention?

This was a good mystery/thriller to have with me while I was traveling. The beginning had vibes of the Yellow Wallpaper, and the shift in the middle was very Gone Girl reminiscent.

This was a book club pick. And I enjoyed it well enough, but there wasn‘t much depth to it. The biggest discussion points being character relationships and moral choices.

Entertaining, light read good to block out airport/travel misery.

There‘s still two more volumes after this one, but this one is really where the action is in all of The Sandman. I don‘t want to spoil anything (especially since I know @NikkiM5 is reading it) so I‘ll just say this:

This author has perfected family drama. This is the third book of hers I‘ve read, and I think she keeps getting better and better as a writer.

Personally I liked Evelyn Hugo better for the main character and love story that it was, but this one holds its own for surfers and models. And it did focus more around a broken family and not just one person.

I was so absolutely lucky enough to see this play in the Boston Commons as part of a bachelorette party. We had so much fun, and this play was so well done! Absolutely fantastic acting, sound, prop, and stage use. It‘s one of Shakespeare‘s last plays, so it gets a little weird with magical elements, but everything was seamlessly done in this production! We were laughing & singing along, there seriously is something magical about seeing his plays!

It‘s unsettling reading about a pandemic these days. At least this one was due to fungus spores.

But it served as a catalyst to talk about the individuals relationship to society through an emotionally detached MC. Do we go to our jobs because it‘s expected of us? Do we have romantic partners because we need them? Do we preform well in society as friends, daughters, mothers?

A big part of this was also about a Chinese immigration experience.
