Last book of 2023! I‘m excited for 2024. My goals are just to read what I want when I want, and to vary my genres more.

I was really hyped to read this book. I even requested that my library purchase it so I could read it and I just don‘t care anymore 😭 I don‘t care about any of the characters. I was promised a creepy witch in the woods and so far I‘ve only gotten gross childbirth descriptions and bland characters.

I thought his book was fine. I don‘t really have any complaints, but for some reason it just never fully grabbed me.

I almost loved this. There were some pacing issues but overall it was compelling and highly readable.

I was beginning to think that Riley Sager was a one hit wonder with me! I enjoyed this a lot and I‘m glad I kept reading his books even though most are duds.

This is a literary fiction book mismarketed as horror. The author is definitely talented (and it‘s a debut!) but I just didn‘t connect with it. It‘s not something I would normally pick up but I found it to be highly readable.

Such a cute middle grade book that was also creepy. 💀 Definitely not for kids that scare easily.

Bette Miss Sinister…..at first I was thinking: 😳😬 oh no! Not a doll! But she really comes through…in a hilarious way. 5mo
LynnMPK @Bette Lol. Yes, she was great! 5mo

An amusing group of tales with a moral attached. Filled with Baum‘s usual sassiness and snark. Very enjoyable.

I liked it, but I‘m not sure if I get it. The main character lives in her own little world and it may have been too surreal for me.

Heartwarming and creepy, this book teaches important lessons about acceptance of those who are different, and also deals with survivors guilt while unraveling a decades old murder mystery.

I haven‘t read this since I was a kid. I‘m about a third of the way through and it still holds up. I love that it started out with teens wearing windbreakers at the mall. So 80‘s!
