#TeamSlaughter #PsychologicalThriller @Clwojick Finished my first Nicci French book written by a husband and wife duo. Psychoanalyst Frieda Klein is bothered by the dreams of a patient that she thinks reveal something about a child abduction. This book sets up a series of complex characters and give just a glimpse of a backstory. I will be reading on into this series-excellent on audio.
#TeamSlaughter @Clwojick #ScaryScavengerHunt Finished this mystery set in Three Pines and part of the Armand Gamache series. Armand, Myrna and Bernard are made the liquidators of the will of a cleaning woman known as the “Baroness”. Seemingly they have no connection with her prior to her death. Also, the drugs that escaped from the sting operation of the previous book are on the streets ready to kill. Points for #Mystery and #PartofaSeries
#TeamSlaughter @Clwojick read this psychological thriller(extra points please!) and it was great. First in a series, Gwen Proctor married a serial killer. The book opens the moment he is uncovered- women slaughtered in her garage and she never knew- but the victims‘ families and the trolls don‘t believe she was innocent so she has to flee with her kids and keep moving to keep them safe. Now they have settled in rural TN-and are found4⭐️
#ChillingPhotoChallenge #TeamSlaughter #black @Clwojick #Scarathon Most of the all black books in my life are legal research hornbooks- what an exciting life- a snap from my work bookshelf! Now off for a pumpkin latte to cheer myself up🤣
The town of Larkin Mills is decidedly weird- could all the stories the adults tell about the past be true- what is the Egg of Death and why does Morricone‘s ice cream taste so good? A middle grade thriller/series of interlinked stories. Such fun! @Clwojick Points for thriller please! #TeamSlaughter #scarathon also points for #blackcover for the #scaryScavengerHunt!
#Scarathon #TeamSlaughter #ScaryScavengerHunt #11CharacterDies @Clwojick Finished this #Mystery - All about elderly characters, linked in their history and all subject to eerie and bothersome telephone calls- in different voices but with one message “Remember you must die”. ...and they do! Very odd character driven study in true Spark fashion- have you read “The Driver‘s Seat”? Old folks, creepy retainers, lust, blackmail, and DEATH.
#horror #ChillingPhotoChallenge #Scarathon #TeamSlaughter @Clwojick That feeling you get when you realize that those fabulous flat pack purchses you made at IKEA are missing one, small, vital part!!!!😱
#Scarathon @Clwojick #TeamSlaughter What a scary book!🤣 For those of you who are language and punctuation wonks- and you know who you are- who read Drexler‘s English as a bit of a palate cleanser between volumes of Proust, this is the book for you. I was fascinated by the stories of the legal battles that turned on a semi-colon; the literary kerfuffles over the punctuation mark that is described as common and posh. Fun read- good as audio!4⭐️

#TeamSlaughter thought those of you who get the Travel Channel (US only maybe?) might like to check out the Travel Channel‘s Ghostober lineup- looks full of hauntings and serial killer ghosts! @Clwojick
#24B4Monday #Scarathon #TeamSlaughter My first book completed and it is a psychological thriller so on point for my team! 68year old Rose wakes up having escaped from a memory care unit- as her system flushes the drugs she comes to realize she didn‘t belong there and something is wrong- and someone wants her dead-just because you‘re paranoid doesn‘t mean you are wrong! Love the characters- Rose is a bad a## and her 13 year old granddaughter rocks!
#7Covers7days just as the news that we are losing our northAmerican birds in record numbers, a bittersweet selection.
Reading a review of the tagged book in The New Yorker. The idea that our current interaction with books should not be nostalgic or as a bunker to stave off the digital onslaught but as a way to “have words with one another” the important thing is the “interactions through which we get our hands on books” as well as those that “awaken a desire for them”... so basically Litsy!!!🤣🤓🤔 Community Goals. Happy Sunday Littens!
