I was really surprised by this book. I wasn't into it the first few dozen pages but then it hooked me. I don't necessarily empathize completely with Anya, but I get where she's coming from. I'd say this is maybe appropriate for pre-teens and up~

It's not the best of the Poirot mysteries, but it's good to sit and knit or cook to! My main issue is that the beginning feels very rushed, and then it lags for about an hour or so.

Clwojick I almost picked this up at the thrift store today, but I‘m glad I left it behind now that I‘ve read this. I‘ve still never read an A. Christie book, so I‘m thankful this wasn‘t my first. 📖 3mo
Regi_C @Clwojick it's definitely not her best! It came out in the 60s, so I daresay she was tired of her characters by this point. Her earlier stuff tho is excellent! Definitely give ABC Murders or a short story collection a try! 3mo

What a beautiful children's book about a little vampire! It's a little tough to find, but it's a great book for early readers or to read to your little ones (plus, if you like horror imagery, you can introduce your kid to it in a safe space)! Also the author is the same one who made Akira.

Did you know the documentary was based on this amazing book? I can't recommend this highly enough!

For those who don't know, there's a documentary on Shudder by the same title that focuses on the black experience in horror. It's absolutely amazing, and the books is even better. It is academic in nature but not so much that you'll be bored with the writing style.

pilardib I knew about the documentary but didn't know there's was a book! I'll definitely read this! 😲 4mo

This graphic novel has the best depiction of depression I've read in ages. Sure there are ghost elements, but ultimately this is about understanding and healing for both the main character and those around her.

Horrorstor: A Novel | Grady Hendrix

I was incredibly surprised by this! It flows from black humor to horror easily, and it has this kind of claustrophobic writing that really gets under your skin. My favorite part is how the chapter opening furniture specs change as the story goes on.

Highly recommend for horror fans looking for a quick read!

I wanted to read this before I watched the movie. The book definitely skews more juvenile, but it's a fun premise and a pretty short read! Basically, a recently orphaned Lewis is sent to live with his uncle, who he finds out is a warlock. The boy accidentally raises a bad warlock from the dead, and chaos ensues.

Another classic! I'm trying to read at least 10 classics this year. I wasn't familiar with the Tommy and Tuppence series, but it's pretty fun. Not so much mystery as it is action-y, and it's a pretty quick read.

Naj I love Tommy and Tuppence. It's such a nice surprise to discover them because this series is not as popular as Poirot or Ms. Marple. Glad you liked the book! 6mo
Regi_C @Naj I loved it! I already found the short story collection, so I'm adding it to my list to read later on this year 😄 6mo

I wanted to read this one because it's a pre-Agatha Christie murder mystery, but I have to admit, the first half was very scattered and kind of boring. As with lots of these kinds of mysteries, I lost track of characters quickly, and the second half had a lot more action and an abrupt finale.

I would say read it for the history of the genre, plus it's free on kindle.

This was surprisingly a very good zombie manga, despite what the cover may imply. You can definitely see where the writer gets his influence from, and it's a quick read that left me both curious about the world the girls live in, but also satisfies a number of questions.

This cozy mystery was really odd. It had few clues and kind of bandied about a bit. I finished it, so it wasn't painful, but I'm not sold on the series. It was a rental from Prime Reading, though, which has gems mixed with so-so novels.

Audition | Ryu Murakami

If you're a fan of horror you've probably seen Audition pop up as having some of the most horrifying scenes in horror. The book is no exception, but in true Murakami form it doesn't unleash the insanity until about midway or 3/4 of the way through. This edition was very well translated and is a great addition to any horror buff's shelf.

Laylafinn I couldn‘t do this movie...turned it off maybe 20 mins in! 9mo
Regi_C @Laylafinn it's a crazy movie! I'll admit, the way they audition the women makes me incredibly uncomfortable 9mo

I wanted to like this, I really did. But it was so boring, and a body didn't turn up until around 100 pages in. The protagonist isn't the most likeable, and neither is the ghost.

If you like cozy mysteries, I'd choose another.

Not the best cozy mystery, but it's good for a light, quick read. The author is rather repetitive with her phrasing, and the protagonist is a bit frustrating. On the other hand, Pandora the cat and the town of Mystic Notch are both interesting characters that I hope get more print time in the second book.

Power keeps going on and off, and I can hear the car horns blaring because the street lights are out. I'm about halfway through this book, and it looks like camping lamps will be needed so I can make more progress.

On the other hand, this book is progressing at a decidedly slow pace, so maybe I shouldn't bother?
