I really enjoyed this - seeing the night through the eyes of Sam and Lizzie was a good twist on a classic -
I was surprised this is a MG - is that grade 6-8? some parts seemed too mature for that age (Lizzie's future) - I have never really thought about a books audience when I read it (even the YA I read) because I'm reading it for me - but as part of #MGBuddyRead I did think about it this time. @megnews
Make a great day everyone -

megnews This is a question we discuss from time to time in the MG & YA Buddy Read. There were a couple scenes where I too wondered if it could give a middle grader nightmares. A Christmas Carol is such an important classic but the nature of the story can scare the younger group. I thought this would be handled a little differently. GR lists it as both MG & YA. We‘ll see if others felt similarly on the 12th. 3d
bthegood @megnews thank you for the information - very helpful - looking forward to our discussion. 🙂 2d

Fantastic - ghost story/murder mystery/thriller - and it was hard to put down - told in two time lines - I actually felt the creepiness it was written so well.
My only negative comment - the book cover - a million times (ok not that many) the sign is described as flashing Vacancy Cable TV - put Cable TV on the book cover 😆

Finished for #20in4 @Andrew65
Now starting all of my #WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers @Stay Curious books ❄

This was fast paced and kept me on edge. It is part of a series but can be read and understood alone, I did not read the series 😉 It had graphic violence and no neat ending....perfect read right before #WinterGames2021 light holiday reads.
For #20in4 @Andrew65 I hope to finish The Sun Down Motel.

Plan to read tagged and finish One Of Us Will Be Dead By Morning - large family get together Saturday - so these next few days are pretty open for reading/relaxing/setting up my house for candy making day 🙂
We tend to serve the same things - all of which are good - but my favorite was Gumbo at Commanders Palace in New Orleans at Thanksgiving (they put on a wonderful dinner)-

Happy Gratitude Day -

My favorite book read of the year - I love that you never know the whole story (the novel written by Pick) yet it seems to play out (from what we do know ) in several characters lives, love that the wives can see themselves in Pick's book, love the story/mystery behind the writing of Picks novel, love the characters - highly recommend this book!

Finished 2/2 for #NovelNovember @Andrew65

2. My grandson Will - 14 months and so much fun
3. When a wrong name is used midway in a book - I start to think “who is that character, why don't I remember him/her“ then I realize the author meant some other character - and then I'm out of the story - luckily it doesn't happen often

I've read a lot of hours week 3 of #Scarathlon2021 #TeamSlaughter but no books finished yet. Part of the reason is staying too long with books that aren't catching my full attention, like the tagged book.
Goal for #20in4 is now finish 2 books 😊

Looking ahead...is Black House the next #LosersClub book @Mynameisacolour ?

This was just the palate cleanser I needed midway through #Scarathlon2021, so many of my reads have been soso/pan/bails. I used to read these with my nephew - I didn't remember them being as scary and graphic as they are for juveniles - loved it - good scary story to keep me in the Halloween mood -
