Finished this on audiobook today. I‘m so glad that I came back to it after bailing on it a few months ago. It was so good! Using this as part of the #scarathlon #scaryscavengerhunt for a book where a character dies. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

@Clwojick This book was so good, I immediately checked out part two, The Vanishing Stair, and started listening to it. Move this up on your TBR!

Clwojick Will do! i'm going to check to see if it's available on Cloud Library 4d

Finished this one last night, read the whole thing in two days. I liked this better than The Last Time I Lied but not as much as Final Girls. I love Sager‘s books because they are so compulsively readable and I can just fly through them. ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Finished this short GN for the #scarathlon #scaryscavengerhunt for a book that is part of a series.
I love Rick Geary‘s work. His drawing and lettering are so evocative of the Victorian era. I already know and have read about all of the cases he features in his GNs, but it‘s like reading about the case for the first time with his wonderful illustrations.

Just finished this for the #scarathlon #scaryscavengerhunt as a book that‘s over 200 pages.

I 💜 this book! I started it a month or two ago and put it down after a few chapters. I don‘t remember now what turned me off. But I picked it back up when I saw it at my library and I‘m so glad I did! Not only is the book fantastic, it‘s given me a new author that I haven‘t read before that has quite the back catalog. 🧡

The Whisper Man | Alex North

Mehso-so

The third book I finished this weekend (I‘ve been getting a lot more reading done lately thanks to my new job). This book had some good, gripping moments where I felt like I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. Unfortunately, I had the culprit figured out a little more than halfway through the book. Forced myself to finish the last 1/4 of it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was meh. Two jurors on a murder trial have an affair during the trial while they are sequestered. I expected more from this story, expected bigger consequences, a bigger payout at the end, something. Instead, I was left with no feelings at all. Meh. ⭐️⭐️1/2

This book. Ocean Vuong picked me up out of very long reading slump, beat the crap out of me with this story, then kissed me gently on the forehead with his words and imagery. There are sentences in this book that are literally breathtaking. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I went to a large book sale today run by a couple nonprofit groups in my area and this was my best find. A Penguin Drop Caps copy of My Antonia! For $2! I have gazed lovingly and longingly at the web page for the Drop Caps books and dreamed of owning the whole collection. This is my first one. I audibly gasped when I recognized the spine. 😍🧡🧡🧡

My #bnbookhaul sale book haul. Three of them are for my son for his birthday. The rest are for me because I‘ve been very good and not bought any books for months. Except The Nickel Boys because how could you not? And the new Stephen King that comes out next week because I had to.
