Read this one yesterday, think I‘d give it a 4. Though the ending made me sad, middle grade shouldn‘t make me sad darnit. Also this is another that had a pretty spine.

rather_be_reading Just a reminder that your #HalloweenCardSwap packages were supposed to go out yesterday! Thanks. 6d

3.5.
Found this in a fun little shop for a dollar. Was a fun little read and I was just glad to read a haunted house book. I feel like they‘re hard to find lately.

Finished this one last night. It was alright but I do agree with a lot of the reviews saying that this posed as a horror book but it isn‘t really at all. Which is a pity because I was hoping for more horror. But look at this pretty spine.

I forgot to take an actual photo of the book before I returned it. Read this for my book club this month. I‘ve had a sinus infection currently and so some bits in the middle felt hazy. It was a super slow burn of a book. I wish the ending had more of an epilogue. I am curious about watching the tv show episode for this book. I have a hard time imagining them shrinking 530 some pages of a book into like an hour show.

Short story I listened to on audio. The premise sounds amazing but the execution fell short and flat. I had hoped for so much more. It could have been a lot better.

Finished this one today. I listened to “The Haunting Of Hill House” a few months back and I will say they do feel similar. But also it was the exact same narrator who wasn‘t particularly my favorite but I recognized her voice immediately. I hated Charles. But I enjoyed the story. And the movie will be on Netflix tomorrow which I intend to watch.

allthingskayla I am so excited for this one! It is a pretty big book too. Have they emailed you about the promotion once you sent them the info about the posts? Just curious. 1mo
allureofbeauty @allthingskayla nope not yet. I posted on twitter too so not just here. I just hope I did everything right haha guessing you‘re waiting on a reply too? 1mo
allthingskayla @allureofbeauty I am. I posted on my blog and Instagram, so fingers crossed I did everything like they wanted. Unless they are going to send it to us with no reply. 😂 1mo

allthingskayla Have you received anything yet? 1mo
allureofbeauty @allthingskayla I had to reach out to them and they denied me and said I didn‘t include both parts of what they said. But I felt like I was repeating myself to do it that way. But I guess that‘s what they wanted. 1mo
allthingskayla @allureofbeauty I feel like you did it correct. I haven‘t heard or received anything, so my guess is I was denied as well. I just emailed them, so hopefully they‘ll message me back soon. 1mo
allureofbeauty @allthingskayla I felt like i included the info that was needed too. Hopefully they get back to you. You‘ll have to let me know. 1mo
allthingskayla @allureofbeauty I emailed their email and dmed them on Instagram. They said I wasn‘t on the list and they just put me on it. They guess my link got overlooked. 1mo
allureofbeauty @allthingskayla but you‘re going to get the book? Hopefully so. 1mo
allthingskayla @allureofbeauty they dmed me on Instagram back and said the book should be shipped out to me by the end of the week. 1mo
allureofbeauty @allthingskayla lucky. That‘s great and good you messaged since it seemed to skip thru the cracks. 1mo
allthingskayla @allureofbeauty I‘m glad they got back to me. I‘m still surprised you got denied because it looks like you have the information that was needed. :( 1mo

Read this last night for the #summersendreadathon @Clwojick is having.
This was a weird book and the art was okay but I didn‘t know what was going on for most of it and then it ended.l out of nowhere.
#thelagoon #lillicarre #graphicnovel #librarysale

Clwojick 😂I find this is a common thing with graphic novels. I‘ll often pick them up for the artwork, and end up being totally let down by the story. The artwork often makes up for it though. 2mo
allureofbeauty @Clwojick it was an impulse pick at a library sale anyway but I did have somewhat higher hopes lol 2mo

Certainly not the best photo but I went to a library book sale today. And even tho I got there three minutes after it opened resellers had already taken boxes out 😕 but I did find these. Spent 8 dollars. Most excited for Sunburn and Idaho I think, it has such a pretty cover. Anyone read any of these?
