Quick question. I have found several Christmas/Holiday themed books that I really want to read. They sound amazing. The problem? They are part of a series. I have not read the series, but the holiday themed books sound great. One is the tagged book. Do any of you have this problem? If so, can Holiday themed books stand alone? Thanks!

Lauram Go for it! Maybe you‘ll find you want to read the others! (edited) 5d

What are some of your favorite scary, creepy reads that left your skin crawling and goosebumps rising? Not so much overly gory, but good old lock-your-doors-tight, hide-under-the-blankets scary.

Just finished this one and greatly enjoyed it! The illustrations are amazing and the story one of a long building friendship that nearly was not. It is a story of how people are quick to judge and how society thrives on misinformation, power and greed. It is also a story full of emotion and satire. A unique but incredibly clever tale!

This was another good one by Tim Green, though I have to admit that this main character was not my favorite. The storyline was good, but the main character was a bit to into himself.

As always, Sheila Robert's writes an extraordinary story that I completely immersed myself into and loved! This is such a great series and I love how each one focuses on a different character that we have met in a previous book of the series. A very quick and fun read and exactly what I needed to brighten my down days!!

Fantastic!! Loved this story and characters so much. A bit on the freaky side in the aspect that this could very well become a real end-of-the-world scenario but that is what drew me in as well. Also loved that it takes place in IA so I know many of the towns memtioned!

DebReads4fun I loved this book! She has a sequel coming out, can‘t wait! 5mo

I try to avoid books and movies that make me sad and/or cry. There is so much sadness in the world that I want to avoid it when seeking entertainment. A Star is Born about killed me - heart and soul!! 😭

TheSpineView Yes and no. It depends on the individual book. 6mo
CrowCAH I avoid war movies, cause I always cry. But the answer is really no. If a book makes me cry, I know it did it‘s job, made me feel for the characters and the story, I lost myself in the book. 6mo
Crazeedi I like books that create emotion within me. That's how I know it was well written, crying, laughing, doesn't matter! 6mo
