This book did not beat me. I fought through all 799 pages, godsdammit, and I hated every word. I hate this book.

In lieu of a fireplace, we have a bookshelf in the main room that our stockings will be going on, and I just put up the garland! Stockings are drying right now (we needed new ones) and I‘ll post a pic when they‘re up!

ShyBookOwl I love this!! I'm working up to switching over my bookshelf decor from Halloween to Christmas..soon! 2w
SW-T Lovely idea. Looks very festive! You‘re very brave having garland out with the cats! 😂 2w

MsRadioSilence @SW-T I‘m very worried but he‘s generally a very good cat. Hasn‘t even tried to climb the christmas tree, just chewed on the garland while I was putting it up haha. And he‘s pulled off an ornament to play with (he lost all his balls) 2w

When I say it was VERY hard for me to finish this book… This was absolutely a spite read, fueled by my hate fires that burned brighter after every page. Will I read the next one? Yes. Will I be pissed about it? Absolutely.

My Friend Dahmer | Derf Backderf
post image
Panpan

Not a fan. So he had a bad home life and every adult around him failed him. So he was an outcast and an oddball and only had friends bc he was ableist and made fun of people. I‘m glad Backderf has sympathy for Dahmer, bc you‘ll be hard pressed to find any from me. This book was way too apologetic, and not towards the people whose lives were ruined bc of one man. No thanks, I‘d prefer not to sympathize with someone who brutally murdered others.

MsRadioSilence I‘m not sure what I was expecting, but I‘m just really not here for sympathizing with a serial killer who knew he had problems and, if the Notes are to be believed, did have at least one person trying to help. Anyways. I need a palate cleanser. 2w
MsRadioSilence ALSO ALSO the author tried to make a joke bc he once talked to Dahmer dressed as H**ler and never once mentioned that that‘s antisemitic as f*ck and he was wrong for it? And all the ableism jokes he also didn‘t think to apologize for in 2012 when this was published? Dude. What the f*ck did I just waste my time on?? 2w

I‘m not sure what I was expecting, but this book was really boring. I‘m not a fan of history books, so maybe that‘s why I nearly fell asleep reading it.

Payback's a Witch | Lana Harper

I‘m not gonna lie, the ending was a little predictable, and there were a few times when a word was overused just because it‘s big and pretty (once again advocating for a thesaurus and that - gasp! - small words are okay). Overall, I liked the language, even with all the pop culture references, but it felt mostly natural. I still had a good time reading it though, which was refreshing.

This one, like The Husband Stitch, was really hard to read. Tw for assault, the ending for me was really sad. A good end to the overall book though.

A writer goes to a retreat in the woods and is forced to face herself. As a lifelong Girl Scout, and having camped at places similar to the one described in the story, it was a neat visualization to add to the story. As a writer, too, yet another one I can put myself into.

I bought this book after a professor had us read “The Husband Stitch” for a Hauntings and Horrors literature class. I won‘t lie, it did get a little slow there in the middle, and all the stories made my head feel fuzzy, but I did enjoy all of them in some way or another. The Husband Stitch is, imho, the best of them, but a good read regardless.

Tw: eating disorder, but otherwise a very creepy tale. Not my favorite of them all so far, as it‘s quite tame in comparison, but interesting.

This feels relevant, especially with the happenings in Texas, but it could also be applied to any female-presenting issue. Bodily rights, being transgender, or just living as a woman, this story rings more true the more I contemplate it.

I‘ve never actually watched all of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, but they‘re all on HBO, so I thought I‘d give it a go. Halloween and Scream are still my favorite slashers, so I went in with a bias and I still have 3 movies left. So far, my favorite was Freddy‘s Dead, and I didn‘t even watch it in 3D!

I went in with high expectations and most of them were met, except at the very end. It felt a little too “white savior” for me, but I did enjoy getting a peek into Maud‘s past. Ironically enough, I was talking to my boyfriend about homemade gingerbread houses the day I bought this book, so now we have a recipe!
