This was fabulous!!! A walk through a large history of rock and roll, his own career and all the facets of celebrity. Elton does not hold back and really creates a complete picture of a life without compare.

JacqMac Yay! I‘m looking forward to it. 5d

His Hideous Heart | Dahlia Adler

Mehso-so

Some of the retellings just didn‘t hit the mark for me, however the retelling of The Cask of the Amontillado, The Oval Portrait, The Pit and the Pendulum, and the Tell Tale Heart were spot on. Good read if you are a devotee of Poe as I am. Plus very LGBTQ inclusive!!!

Loved hearing the author talk about the amount of research she did for this book, and considering it is inspired by real life events here in Texas, I couldn‘t resist. Our Houston YA for Adults Book Club pick for August.

We‘re having a Scary Stories campout in my bookstore on Saturday so it‘s time to reread these gems from back in the day. So excited!!!

marleed I bought these for my son as a middle schooler. He‘s 29 now and can‘t believe I bought him those books. I keep telling him they were marketed for his age. They must have scared the beegeezus out of him in ways I was never aware. I really want to give him a new set but can‘t decide between the black or white spines! 3mo

I do story time at my store three days a week and always love to be able to preview new books through Edelweiss that will really engage the kids. This one is adorable and seems like it will be a great way for kids to just be silly! I can‘t wait to see their funny faces when we read this together!!!! Quite frankly, this was my favorite book for the #24in48 readathon!

If you‘re not a fan of hardcore sci-fi but like some of the elements of it, then this book will read well for you. I loved the literary feel to it without it being super science heavy. Much more about interpersonal relationships and and internal dialogue. I loved it.
