What do you do when the power is out? Thank PG&E (sarcasm) and read scary stories.

Jesstifies You must be in Cali. My family is too. Hope you‘re staying comfy and safe! I‘ve read that book and it‘s pretty fun (and only medium creepy, for me bc I‘m a wimp) 🤣 1w

The Atrocities | Jeremy Shipp

It was short kind of predictable but not bad. I would not say this is a pick as I will probably never read it again.

LibrarianRyan I thought the same thing. I really wanted more. I wanted to know why this place had all the statuary. And what was going on. It really felt half formed. 2w
Pogue @LibraryRyan It really did. For me there were a lot of unanswered questions. Ones I would have liked to have known about. Also what happened to Albert? (edited) 2w

I loved this book especially the ending. It was amazing. I don‘t want to give spoilers so I will just say it was not what I expected.

I have heard people say this book was funny, or as engaging as Huck Finn. I thought it was ok, I am not a big fan of westerns, not was I a big fan of Huck Finn.

An interesting look at old Rhymes. Some I know, some I have vaguely heard of, and others were new to me.

OMG this was the most erotic book I have read. The relationship with Hero and Houndstooth made me sweat and it was not at all graphic! Just hot. I loved this book.
