@LapReader Oh my goodness! I had 100% forgotten about our #HocusPocusSwap and then look what somehow managed to arrive ON MY BIRTHDAY?!?! Double awesome!! I was so excited to see this! Thank you for all the wonderful goodies and spooky stories! I loooove ghosts 😁

P.S. I'm blaming Canada, as it appears the package landed in Toronto in late September. So, thank you Canadian postal service, for this serendipitous delay 😂

LapReader So pleased to hear it‘s not Australia Post‘s fault again! 7mo

I'm trying, I really am, but maybe YA just isn't for me anymore. At 200 pages in, I'm thankful that this is a fast read and I have coffee, because boy are these characters dull.

Whodunit85 @aprilpohren Thanks! I collect penguins, this lil guy is my fave :) 7mo
laurenbescoby I read a couple of YA fantasy books that I got in the Fairyloot boxes, and they were so similar I cancelled my subscription. Usually a princess or servant, with harsh father, aged 17 and trying to make something of herself. Qué learning to fight like a badass in no time at all, having hot guys all around and winning the day! 🙄 7mo

Zelma I didn‘t like this book at all. I still read a little YA but am very picky and only once in awhile. 7mo
Whodunit85 @laurenbescoby @Zelma I very much enjoyed the last John Green I read, and this looked interesting so I thought I'd continue giving YA it's shot... but my parent brain cannot handle this book. 7mo
Megabooks I‘ve cut way down on the YA. I went from a 5-6 a month to maybe one. It just feels too unrelatable to my life. 7mo
ravenlee I read 80 pages of this book and loathed it. I like YA, but it definitely calls for careful choosing of titles. So much of it is the same, but there are some gems in there. 7mo

What a crazy little volume! Wonderfully frightening read for a dreary Sunday afternoon. The gothic feel is reminiscent of a Susan Hill story, with just enough of the modern to feel relatable. Highly recommended.

Excellent pick, @Avanders, and the dark chocolate was wonderful :) #HGPBC #HorrorGoesPostalBookClub #TeamJaws

I've been reading multiple books concurrently for as long as I can remember, but I finally did it... I finally screwed up. I somehow managed to start two thriller/mystery/horror type books that both start out at a boys prep school and are told from the perspective of a new student attending on a scholarship. I made it far enough in that even if I set one aside, I am likely committed to being confused for at least the next five days. Dangit.

I have a depression. Sometimes it is very small. Other times it is enormous. I struggle to do the things I enjoy or to take care of myself, and forcing myself to do those things I know I should often makes the hole deeper, wider. Today, even reading is so difficult that I become more upset each time I find my focus wandering from the page. This book came in the mail today, but I want to have a good experience with it, so best wait for another day.

Notafraidofwords I can understand. I‘m sending you healing thoughts. Sometimes life feels impossible. 12mo

Bailedbailed

I hate bailing on books. This bail will probably bother me for weeks. She totally lost me, however, even after an amazing first chapter, with the God chapter. I don't see why believing in a higher power is prerequisite to believing in myself, nor was this point clear in the description of the book. I felt a little duped by page 30. I'm sad, because I loved the writing style, but the philosophy is not for me.

What an excellent plot twist! I really enjoyed that there were characters who were endearing, those that annoyed me, those who were peripheral enough to not take up too much space but still played a role. Driscoll has a wonderful talent for developing the appropriate characters in the right ways to keep a story interesting, give it some plausible emotion, and distract her reader in the right places. Loved it!

tracey38 Oh wow. That would be quite creepy. 13mo
Maewyn That is kind of cool though. I love when books are set somewhere I am or know... However a murder mystery might not be the best genre for the "That is totally right here" vibe. (edited) 13mo
Whodunit85 @Maewyn Right? I thought it would be super cool, but now I'm reading about gruesome things happening at campsites I'm basically living next to for five days. Not so fun anymore 😂 13mo

Informative. Hilarious. Amazing. I also admit to taking photos of the entire bibliography to scour some of the topics I loved most. Highly recommended as a chapter-at-a-time non-fiction to help you feel smarter and super up to date on advancing technologies... that is, if you're a total science fail like me.

TieDyeDude Agreed. I had it next to my bed for a month or so for some quick reading. The chapters are broken up well 13mo

You guys. I was supposed to be asleep 3 hours ago, but I could not put this down. I laughed out loud, clutched my blanket with anxiety, and cried so many tears. I'm exhausted, but wish I could sing better praises for this amazing novel. Going to sleep now with tears in my eyes. Please read this book.

RebL This book is worth staying up late to read. 13mo
