What Feasts at Night | T Kingfisher

I had to jump to this one since its due back to the library before the others. I really wanted to like this one since i liked What Moves The Dead. This one fell kind of flat for me and i found myself getting confused and having to reread sections. I still dont know what happened! Ill have to reread it at some point.

Bath & Body Works has a bookish candle called Book Loft! I didnt light it yet, but it smells amazing in the jar! Their description of the scent says:
What it smells like: cozying up with a book you can't put down.
Fragrances notes: crisp bergamot, neroli and cozy woods.

Mister Magic | Kiersten White
Mehso-so

I didnt read the authors note until i had finished the book so i had no idea that she was drawing a parallel to religion and cults! The story probably would have made more sense if i knew. This started out good but got away from me. I felt like the ending got kind a messy and all over the place. It was very confusing go me. Maybe in the future ill reread it knowing what i know now!

*Sigh* This was a definitely miss for me. I wouldnt call this a thriller at all. I am not good with technology and this whole book is about computers and hacking so i was very lost. Im used to her books being very twisty but this one wasnt at all. The end definitely wasnt the greatest either. Im starting to realize her books are hit or miss for me. This one fell flat.

I heard about this viral tiktok via instagram where a daughter created a tiktok for her Dad to help him sell a book that took him 14 years to write. The tiktok got 15 million views and helped her Dad sell 65,000 books in one month. It helped push it up on the Amazon best seller list. People were buying just to help out but then realized it was a really good book! I bought one to support but im also excited to read it! Its available on Amazon!

What a wild ride this book was! For me as a horror fan i wouldnt say it was scary but definitely creepy. This book had it all. A fractured family, ghosts, creepy dolls and imaginary friends. It started kind of slow for me but when it got going it was so good. It was a complex story with a lot of moving parts. Ill just leave it at that.

Has anyone seen this yet?!

This is very interesting!

If you use the app you have to update it to see the audiobooks.

KT1432 I‘ve had the beta version on one of my accounts for a few months now so I was happy to see it fully launch! I‘m curious if the option will be available for all their picks at the time they drop. I‘m a big audiobook consumer and there have been times when they drop an early release and I‘ve wanted the audio version but didn‘t want to wait for the library or even for Audible to release them. 14mo
bookish_wookish So are the audiobooks the same price as the hardcovers? @lele1432 I dont usually listen to audiobooks so i dont know how much they usually are! 14mo
KT1432 Yep you‘d have to use a credit so depending on what plan you have it might not be worth it to you lol. My Audible and auidobooks.com credits (yes I have both 😅) have increased over the years and are within a dollar of what a BOTM credit would cost, so in certain instances like an early release I might get the BOTM audio. Now I‘m wondering about add-ons though! If I could use a credit to get a hardcover and add an audio for $11 that would be great 14mo
bookish_wookish This is very interesting! I really couldnt find any info on the app as to how it would work! @lele1432 14mo
KT1432 I might have to email them lol I have a lot of questions now! 14mo
