Litjoy announced their Sept. theme: Haunted Mansion. I took their quiz "If You Were A Ghost Which Location Would You Haunt?" and got a fitting response. My favorite classic is Wuthering Heights so this is perfect! ?

This is a cute teen #graphicnovel about Destiny Harper who wishes she had a babysitting job. After a strange encounter she sees an ad for one that lands her in Gloomvania. A very quick read with wonderful graphics...on to book 2! 🤗 ⭐⭐⭐💫

My Plain Jane | Jodi Meadows, Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand
post image
Pickpick

This book had a little bit of everything: mystery, romance, thrills & adventure. You may know the story of Jane Eyre, but it's also the story of Charlotte Brontë, aspiring writer and seeker of stories. Jane and Charlotte are great friends at the school for girls where they aren't treated very well or taken care of very well. Jane ventures away as a governess, but can also see ghosts. Is this her calling? #whatwillshechoose #ghostsarepeopletoo ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Anya's Ghost | Vera Brosgol
post image
Pickpick

After having this on my Libby hold list for months, it finally appeared! 😊 I enjoyed this graphic novel. Anya's family has immigrated to the US and Anya's having trouble fitting in at school. She does things to hide her heritage and it takes a shocking eye opener in the form of a ghost to get her to realize she can be a great person by accepting herself and her heritage.

A mash up of Victorian era vampire stories along with background of the authors. some of the stories were creepy and some were just okay to me. I'll probably try a reread at some point because I couldn't give my full attention for some reason. 3.5/5 ⭐

A Discovery of Witches | Deborah E. Harkness
post image
Pickpick

This book was splendid! It's a #chunkster, but I could hardly put it down. There's so much more insight into how the relationship between Diana and Matthew unfolds than what the tv series shows (of course!). In fact I'm finally understanding many aspects of some of the show's scenes now that I've read the book. 😁 This history nuggets implanted in the book are delightful to this history nut! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I'm usually really into weird, eclectic stuff, but for some reason I didn't enjoy many of these short stories. To me they were just okay. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It could be that I've had a super rough work month in April and the stories just weren't grabbing my attention. I'll try a reread again one day soon. ⭐⭐⭐

I absolutely adore this graphic novel! It's huge and heavy, but so worth the read! Karen Reyes is a 10 yr old monster loving artist who uses her notebook and drawings to capture the essence of her emotions and surroundings as she lives with her ill mother, her sometimes dysfunctional brother and a murder in their building. A superb read; some of the most awesome line drawing I've ever seen. Can't wait to get my hands on Vol. 2! 🤗

Congrats @Mitch for your 100k milestone! Also thank you for hosting this giveaway as a celebration! I really love the Veronica Speedwell mystery series. She's a Victorian adventuress who (to the delight of some and irritation of others) helps solve crimes even though many times she is in danger as well. The next in the series, tagged, comes out soon this month and I cannot wait! 🤗

Sawkill Girls () | Claire Legrand

Beware of the woods and the dark, dank deep.
He‘ll follow you home, and he won‘t let you sleep.

Something is happening to the girls of Sawkill Rock.

This book...gosh, it was fabulous! It's classified as YA horror, but I wouldn't go as far as saying it's horror. Maybe for some since there are some terribly creepy parts, but it was a dynamic thriller imo. The MCs are all female and gritty and wonderful! I definitely recommend it.

⭐⭐⭐⭐

This graphic novel was amazing. I've never read any of Octavia Butler's books yet, but after finishing this adaptation I can't wait to read Kindred. This was discomforting and poignant. Truly unique storyline and it brings the effects of slavery to the forefront. The graphics were very well done and I was hooked from beginning to end. I'll probably be thinking about this one for quite some time.

I LOVED this book and I couldn't put it down. I read it in one sitting today. This is the third book of the series and this time Charlotte "Sherlock" Holmes has to get the hangman's noose from around someone she deeply cares about. It was great for my mystery buff mind.

Cas is a 17 YO ghost hunter who has taken up the family business after his father was murdered by a ghost. He and his mom travel from place to place so he can send ghosts to their forever deaths. When he meets Anna in all her bloody glory he feels a connection unlike he ever has to another ghost even while she swats him around like a puppet. Can he figure out what makes her stronger and more potent than any other ghost he's come up against?

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was a delightfully creepy little book. Great to get me in the Fall mood. It wasn't terrifying, but it was a great read with a twist I didn't see coming! There's always been something about the woods on an overcast day that leaves me #unsettled and even reading about the trees gave me goosebumps. 😱🍁

Dark Sentinel | Christine Feehan

Pickpick

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A definite pick for paranormal romance fans! This book was action packed from Chapter 1. I especially loved the strong female lead who, as a simple human, helped kick vampire tail! High praise for Christine Feehan as always. Even with this being book #28 in the series she still brings the suspense and action mixed with just the right amount of humor. 😻

8th book in The Wishcraft Mystery series. I give this 3.5 ⭐s. I enjoyed it, but not as much as the previous books in the series. It's still a good mystery, gave me lots of laughs so I won't complain. I admit I was in the dark about the murderer until the end so that's a plus! 🤗
