For anyone following along with the official list, this is up next for #ReadSpooky2022

And since I‘ve finally got my StoryGraph account organized, I‘ve made a challenge there for this: https://app.thestorygraph.com/reading_challenges/5fc84614-830d-4ae9-b41e-629547e...

bthegood Just started this and I'm hooked and I just joined storygraph (in January) - so I'll join that challenge - thanks for hosting and putting this together - (edited) 5mo

The Women in the Walls | Amy Lukavics
post image
Mehso-so

A kind of haunted house story with a twist. Good enough that I kept reading it because I wanted to know what happens, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a haunted house story but it‘s by no means a masterpiece. You never quite forget that you‘re reading a YA novel. #ReadSpooky2022

Used my Tim Burton deck to pull my first two picks for #TBRDeckofCards 👻

7♣️ is the tagged book

J♦️ is the prompt Music, for which I chose The Chimes (tagged below) since it‘s one of the books on my Unfinished List.

As mentioned, I‘m setting a casual horror challenge for myself but I figured if anyone wanted to join yet another challenge for 2022:

Have a spooky year by reading at least one horror book per month. Follow the provided list or make your own! Nothing is mandatory, participate whenever and however you‘d like. If you want to read more per month or only join for one month, go for it. #ReadSpooky2022

Addison_Reads Great idea! I read horror frequently, so this sounds fun. 6mo

KatieDid927 I think I'll join, three of these have been sitting on my TBR (April, May and August) so I'll prob join you for those, and then go with my own picks for most of the year. Thanks for sharing! 6mo
KatieDid927 Also, still going through the list, hadn't heard of Something Killing the Children but I sure do know James Tynion! I actually know him personally, he's the cousin of a friend. Random. 6mo
j9brown Sounds fun! 👻 I'll try to follow along, too! September's pick has been on my tbr for aaaages. And some of these I've never heard of, excited to check them out! 6mo

While I was finishing my list for #Roll100, I also decided I‘m going to do #TBRDeckofCards, and probably set my own horror challenge for myself.

In doing these, I discovered I have enough TBR books to cover all three challenges and a separate TBR without cross listing anything 😅

Lol it‘s 11pm and NOW I‘m working on items for the new year. I don‘t usually do life resolutions but I do have reading goals:

⭐️ Instead of aiming for a set # of books, I just want to read more. Even if it‘s just a chapter a day.
⭐️ Finish most of the 27+ books on my “unfinished” list.
⭐️ Read from my TBR list, focusing on books I own.
⭐️ This is more an unofficial goal but I want to finish reading all of Ania Ahlborn‘s books.

inthegreensandblues I like the goal of even just a little bit every day. 😊 Happy new year! 6mo
AkashaVampie Feel free sweetie to join on my challenge called #ReadMyRoom. 6mo

Posting this because I know many Littens are from the US:

This weekend, one of my cousins was abducted by her mother, from a parking lot outside Montreal. Her mother is from New Mexico and drove up to Canada to take her. They had been found at the Border at Highgate Springs (VT) and the Amber Alert was cancelled. Except the Border Patrol allowed her to cross into Vermont and now no one knows where they are.

Details from the Amber Alert ⤵️

teebe On November 20, 2021, at approximately 2:30pm, Dasia Rose Diabo DOB 2013/11/23
Abducted by her mother at Tim Horton‘s on Saint Jean Baptiste in Chateauguay.

Child is approximately 4 foot tall, brown hair, waist length. Wearing a pink jacket, jeans, purple hat and gloves, and work boots.
7mo
teebe Mother: Denise Honoria DOB 1989/11/23 5‘2” 125lbs, fair complexion, wearing an olive green jacket and is of Latino decent.

Driving a beige 2000 Toyota Tacoma, New Mexico Licence plate RDG893.

They will also have a brown and white beagle dog with them.

Call (450)632-6505, if you have seen, or have any information, that could assist investigators.

teebe ANYONE WHO WANTS TO SHARE — I recommend sharing the FB post from the Kahnawake Peacekeepers (linked above) as that had the Amber Alert details people should be aware of. They were last seen crossing into Vermont at Highgate Springs. They may be heading back to New Mexico but could be anywhere in the US. 7mo

All participants send and receive horror-themed books and goodies. Open internationally.

I have never celebrated #CanadaDay (or the #FourthofJuly) and I don‘t know any Indigenous person who has. It has always been a day of mourning for us.

There are tons of resource lists being shared now more than ever. Search them out. I will add that it‘s not enough to just read Indigenous authors. #DecolonizeYourShelves but also decolonize the way you read, analyze and review books. Racism is still a huge problem within bookish communities.

Which one do you like better? After the pain of moving way too many boxes of books I‘m seriously considering getting an e-reader. I like the idea of a non-Amazon option but it seems like Amazon has better options and e-book sales??

TrishB I have a paperwhite and really like it. 1y
candority I have a Kobo (Aura Edition 2) and it‘s been great. There are less eBook sales with Kobo vs Kindle and they don‘t always line up, which can be frustrating when you know a great book is on sale for Kindle, but Kobo still has a lot of great sales in my opinion. I‘m not sure if it‘s still an issue, but Kindle never used to work with the eBook formats from Canadian libraries, but Kobo does. So if you‘re a library user, definitely consider that! 1y
Ast_Arslan I had Kobo long time ago but it was a bad experience, now I have Kindle and I just love it. It's easy and plus amazon has a lot of daily and monthly offers for ebook 🤩 1y

CBee Never had a Kobo but I adore my Kindle! I have a Paperwhite. 1y
teebe @candority thanks, this helps! I found out from a review that Kobo does price matching for ebooks so it is possible to get Kindle prices with some extra steps. (edited) 1y
candority @teebe You‘re welcome! That‘s good to know. I may need to look into that! 1y
teebe @Ast_Arslan yeah I‘ve seen a lot of reviews that say kobo is awful and a lot that say it‘s the best. I‘m trying to figure out why there‘s such a divide there lol 1y
teebe @CBee @TrishB thanks for your input! Paperwhite is definitely the recommendation I get most often and I‘m considering it 1y
Ast_Arslan @teebe I also have friends that love kobo but one day my device decided to cancel all my books. I switched it off and on again, but nothing worked. 1y
Ast_Arslan I tried to switch it off again but it did not works. Afyer 7 years is still framed on the homepage but it not works at all. Definitely a terrible experience o.o 1y

Hello from the other side of the move! 👋🏼 I‘m still not completely settled yet. My new office/studio/library is my basement so I‘m working on fixing some things up. This corner is basically all of my books, they will live here until I replace my bookshelves.

mommyincolortv I'm getting ready to move myself and I'm already lamenting the process. I'm packing up myself, 2 kids and my mom. My mom broke her shoulder 2 months ago so she can't help pack too much or move anything so I'll be relying on my spoiled 13yo to pitch in. Thank goodness we don't have any heavy furniture, we'll be buying all new. Good luck with the move! 1y

Ghost Story | Peter Straub

1. In books, pretty much anything ghostly or demonic. In movies, I still think Freddy Krueger was a terrifying premise even though the movies no longer scare me.

2. Probably The Exorcist, at a ridiculously young age. If not A Nightmare on Elm Street. Hard to tell, I‘ve been watching them almost all my life.

3. I think this one has been on it the longest.

So if you‘ve sent me something— sorry! 😅 I probably got it but haven‘t posted it yet. My goal is to go through it before Monday!

I don‘t think I ever posted the finished home library after moving last year. Here it is with a cameo by Gambit. Alas, I now have to take it all down as I‘m moving again 🤦🏻‍♀️

This is one wall of my guest bedroom. I also have a small bookcase for oversized books to the left, small paperbacks in a built-in shelf on the opposite wall, and a TBR cart upstairs.

Last weekend I sent about 1/3 of the cards for #PoutinePenPals and a batch for #CardSwap.

Yesterday I sent the #CanuckChristmasSwap package. It should be there by the 17th. And I sent another batch for the holiday card swap.

Today I‘ve mailed the remaining cards for the card swap and I‘m sending more for Poutine Pen Pals this weekend.

Something fun for the #CreepyChristmas group or anyone else who wants to share. It doesn‘t need to be holiday-themed!

Ghost stories are one of my favourite traditions, and one of the major influences of my love for horror (besides watching scary movies way too young). It also spurred my interests in non-fiction books and history. Do you have a favourite “true” scary story?

Endowarrior21 I grew up in a haunted house. The house I grew up in was built by my great grandfather it known as the Dutch Kitchen in the town I grew up in. The front half was the restaurant and the back the living quarters. I very young when I started seeing ghost/spirits and my grandparents and parents just thought it was my imagination which they encouraged and thought the ghost I would describe was a imaginary person. Until one day I asked my grandpa why he 2y
Endowarrior21 had a picture of her on the wall in the living room and he told me that was my grandma‘s aunt who died when she was 5 by drowning in the lake on the property. One of my middle names is her name Ann and she was very active around Christmas to one year she turned on and off the tree lights which where not plugged in. And she also loved to roll balls down the stairs. And when my grandpa died I started seeing him in the house too. And to this day the 2y
Endowarrior21 people living there claim they hear a little girl laughing and a old man talking. 2y

Chrissyreadit @Endowarrior21 your story gave me chills!! 2y
Reynosa8701 The house I grew up in was haunted my sister claims something would always push her down the stairs! Our radio would always turn on by itself around 3am! One time my mom left us home alone me being the oldest at the time I think 12 we heard some scratches on the wall my dog even ran downstairs and we all stayed on the first level till our mom came home! Weird stuff always happened those are just a couple that really stick out! 2y
Captivatedbybooks I was always afraid of the basement in my old house as a child. One day I was sent downstairs to get something. I cried and cried and they forced me down. I went to retrieve whatever it was and from behind me I heard someone say my name. When I turned around all I saw a man i ran upstairs screaming my head off and apparently by my description the old man was a great uncle i had never met nor seen. When i was shown a picture i said thats him! 2y
Captivatedbybooks Im afraid of basements now and im 34 yrs old 2y

For anyone participating in multiple swaps, @Chrissyreadit made a helpful little image 🎄❄️

#CreepyChristmas friends, keep in mind the delays due to the pandemic and usual holiday madness when shipping 🖤

Chrissyreadit Thanks @teebe - also I‘m waiting for 2 more items and mine will ship. Hopefully Friday so plenty of time. 2y
teebe @Chrissyreadit awesome! 2y
ulrichyumiodd Quick update: my package is ready to ship, but I‘m sick, so it feels wrong to go out right now - or even to touch the box, just in case! It seems to be a common cold, though, so I should be able to ship soon. 2y
teebe @ulrichyumiodd ok thanks for letting me know! Hope you feel better! 🖤 2y

#CreepyChristmas pals, here‘s a little questionnaire to let your Secret Santa get to know you 💀🎄

Also, anyone can participate even if they aren‘t in the swap!🖤 For fun, my answers are ⬇️

teebe 2. Maybe not the scariest ever but it managed to give me a panic attack so…
3. #UnpopularOpinion The Shining and It are not scary. Enjoyable but not frightening. I don‘t think any Stephen King-based movies are.
4. Ghosts!
5. Art supplies? lol. Old cameras. A completely non-deliberate but ever-expanding hoard of The Nightmare Before Christmas items.
(edited) 2y
DinoMom 1- the ruins. 2. Nature having a creepy torturous action- I just happening to be reading it in the middle of woods on a camping trip. 3 I don‘t like most of the new horror movies .I like the classics or psychological scares 4. Classic movie monsters , werewolves, Frankenstein, swamp monster, etc. 5. Rocks& crystals, fun pattern reusable storage. Bags (like replacements for ziploc bags) I also have lots of avocado & taco themed things (edited) 2y
