Just checking in. I tried emailing you about a week ago @Hazel2019 - haven‘t gotten the book yet, have you sent it? Worried maybe something happened on its journey.

Was curious about this one based on the comparisons to House Of Leaves. But it falls far short in that comparison, as they all do. It was a weird little novella. I‘m also curious about the movie which I can finally watch now since I read it.

I‘m torn between a pick and a soso on this one. This is part of our traveling buddy read so I won‘t say too much other than:

This has also been mailed. I‘m sorry it went out late but it is 1000% on its way. I haven‘t gotten the one I should for the new month yet but the second I do I am diving in to get it out earlier.

My choices. I‘m really leaning towards Unbury Carol but figured I should add another choice in. If these really don‘t work I can pull something else 🖤
Also whichever we choose for any of us I was thinking it might be fun to each pick a color for a pen for our annotations.
What do you think @ImperfectCJ @Hazel2019 and @Bianca

Finally read this for a book club. It was very reminiscent of the haunting of hill house (book)/haunting of Bly Manor. There were a lot of things I called that were going to happen even from the first chapter but I still really loved the book.

Was a buddy read. I had been super excited for this premise, it was an instabuy. Murder and quarantine? Tell me more. But insert the Tyra meme for we were all rooting for you with this book.
I felt like it had such amazing promise but then tripped all over itself and fell flat on its face. So I‘m going to need someone else to write a good quarantine mystery. Or a Covid meet cute.
Do they exist, does anyone know? Do I have to try and write this?

LibrarianRyan Nice. Our Dollar Trees have basicly stopped carrying books. It seems to be all bibles and coloring books. 8mo
allureofbeauty @LibrarianRyan ugh that sucks. There are a few around me like that too. I just hit up a ton in the surrounding areas when I happen to be by them too 8mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Great haul! I do well not buying books and borrowing from the library for a couple months then I hit the jackpot or indulge my inner shopper with a book outlet order. 🤣 @LibrarianRyan Many of my Dollar Tree stores have been the same way, but I keep checking & occasionally they'll have about this many books total, not including the bibles. 8mo

I‘m including the last one even though I haven‘t finished it yet but I only have 40% left so I‘m sure I will tonight.
I wish I could have gotten a few more read this month but I think this is pretty decent. Though a few of these were fairly short.
June is my birthday month (I have a wishlist in my last post) so I‘m hoping I still get a lot of reading in there too. And well. Books.

I finished Dial M it‘s a true crime about a local murder to me in the 60s. There‘s a pic of the house in the book & I was curious if it still looked the same & since it‘s right near the half price I was stopping by so I decided to drive by the house. It‘s really beautiful house. I wasn‘t familiar with the case prior reading the book so it was interesting to learn about. Specially since I know the area & knew all the places they were talking about.

ilanakeukake Was it a whole other experience reading a true crime set in a location you‘re so familiar with? Did it make the story scarier? 8mo
allureofbeauty @ilanakeukake it was a whole other experience I think. Knowing all the places they were talking about. But I don‘t think it made it scarier but that might be purely because this was a murder for hire scenario as opposed to something like a serial killer. 8mo
ilanakeukake @allureofbeauty Ah ok that makes sense. I‘d like to try reading a book where I know all the places one day. 📍 It would have to be a horror or a thriller though 8mo

Recently finished this one. I got it out of a local little free library and admittedly for the cover. I don‘t normally pick up a lot of short story collections but I figured I‘d give a try. I enjoyed some of the stories but by the time it was ending I was just getting into it and wishing there was more of it. Some just made no sense to me. Will be passing this along. I really wanted to like it more.
