"He was without a doubt the most unusual person I had ever known, and before long I found myself not just falling in love with O; it was something more, something I had never experienced before. I adored him."

Go Jump in the Pool! | Gordon Korman

I loved this series as a kid and my 11-year-old loved them too! Gordon Korman was just 12-years-old when he wrote the first book in the series. The series follows the comic misadventures of best friends Bruno and Boots at their boarding school. #brunoandboots #gordonkorman #riotgrams #favoritechildrensbooks

Sad to hear that this writer recently passed away at just age 35. My 11-year-old loves his books and couldn't put them down. If there's a young kid in your life, do get them these books! #victorkloss http://www.royalinstituteofmagic.com #theroyalinstituteofmagic

Day 10 of #riotgrams is #comics. I've always loved comic books and it's impossible to post just one. I've always liked the eye catching EC covers of Shock Suspense Stories.

Currently reading The River at Night by Erica Ferencik. "A high stakes drama set against the harsh beauty of the Maine wilderness, charting the journey of four friends as they fight to survive the aftermath of a white water rafting accident, The River at Night is a nonstop and unforgettable thriller by a stunning new voice in fiction."

Sadly there's not too many local public libraries in Manila but I did come across this cute little free library at one of the local Sunday markets. #riotgrams #mylocallibrary

Woman in White | Wilkie COLLINS

Today's #riotgrams is #favoritevillain and mine is hands down...Count Fosco from The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. What a book! I simply could not put down this classic of sensation literature and it led me on the path of so many other wonderful books from this genre. #wilkiecollins #thewomaninwhite

hlgreenfield I've had that book in my tbr for a while now! I must check it out. 3y
Theliterarystew @hlgreenfield You should! It's a page turner. 3y
hlgreenfield @Theliterarystew I'll have to. I've always been fascinated since his are supposedly some of the first books in the genre ( and it's my favourite genre), but I've always been afraid it might be very slow moving and descriptive as book of that time can be! 3y
Theliterarystew @hlgreenfield The first dozen or so pages are slow but it picks up soon enough. You should also try East Lynne. Same genre. 3y
hlgreenfield @Theliterarystew glad to hear it's a good read. I've never heard of it, but it's been added to my tbr. Always happy to pick up new recommendations. ☺ 3y

Today's #riotgrams is a #onewordtitle and this is the first book that came to mind. Loved it when I read it years ago. A teenage boy's doomed love for his glamorous French instructor in 1960s Poland. #madame #antonilibera

Currently reading this because Megan Abbot listed it as a book President Obama should read. It's riveting so far.

Currently reading this. The feeling of dread is so palpable that I just can't look away. Megan Abbott, wow, why have I only just discovered her now? I'm only at 20% but so far this book is excellent. #meganabbott #youwillknowme
