A quick afternoon read in the autumn sunshine. I‘m not a graphic novel fan but my partner is and we have shelves of them. Decided to try some. This was a quick read, delightful art work and my kind of ending. Perfect. @MrsMalaprop

Hey, #ScreamsByMail #HorrorPostalBookClub book tribe, I just realized that our Round 2 will most likely happen in 2019 when GatheringBooks is doing a Year Of Women Reading Women theme. Hence, I am changing my pick to this one instead, if ok with everyone? If any of you have picked out male authors for Round 2, pls let me know asap so I can start reading them before year ends if I still want to join you guys. 🤣😭.

scripturient Sounds good to me. When exactly are we sending out 2 anyways? I thought that it might make sense to send it along with the last book, i.e. when I‘ve received and reread the Fireman and send it home to Myra, I could also put my round 2 in the package. This may save on shipping and we won‘t have any break. What‘s the general opinion here? 😊 6y
BookishTrish Do you want us to re-pick in solidarity? 6y
GatheringBooks @scripturient my understanding is that we send in the “opposite” direction this time around?? 6y

scripturient @GatheringBooks Aaaah, right! I remember someone saying that. Sorry. It‘s still early here. 🙈 6y
GatheringBooks @BookishTrish awww. i wouldn‘t want to impose. but right now, i am more concerned with making sure i find the male-authored books stat so i can devour them before 2019. plus, i realized that there are few female horror authors! 😱 reading in advance is the only way i think i can still join the club. 💕😘 i checked our library. we have frankenstein in baghdad and universal harvester. which one have you decided on? 😘 6y
BookishTrish I‘m leaning toward 6y
BookishTrish What does everyone else think? 6y
GatheringBooks @BookishTrish oooohlala!!! i likey! hopefully it‘s fine with the others as well. it would be interesting to read female horror authors too! hehehhee. 6y
ephemeralwaltz This is great Myra! Definitely start reading, we wouldn't want you to not be able to join us! It would be great to send everything in the opposite direction but my problem is that I'm not sure I'd be able to afford shipping to Canada each time... I signed up with shipping within Europe in mind. I wasn't aware of this switch. 6y
GatheringBooks @ephemeralwaltz i am actually ok with just sticking to the same rotation just so everyone can still join in. i know that @kamoorephoto has similar concerns. any thoughts from @danibolahood @BookishTrish @Reggie @scripturient ? 🧚🏼‍♀️💕😘 6y
Reggie The same rotation is fine. 6y
GatheringBooks @Reggie whee!! looking forward to everyone else‘s inputs. 🧚🏼‍♀️ 6y
scripturient This book looks good to me and I‘m fine with whatever rotation we choose. :) 6y

Carly hitches her backpack and strides into the audition that could change everything.

tournevis Her backpack not being zipped, all its contents are for everyone to see. 7y
MidnightBookGirl The backpack is more than just a prop to help her get into character, it contains the one item that will guarantee that she will get this role. 7y
Booksblanketsandahotbeverage She didn't realize it was open until she caught the eye of the cute blonde boy sitting in the first seat in the back row. 7y

RaimeyGallant It's a jar of beetles, though, looking around at the other hopefuls, she notes that hers isn't the largest of the containers. 7y
AmyG She pulls the jar out of her backpack and her eyes widen as she notices the jar is empty. 7y
RaimeyGallant "I'm going to count to three," she warns the beetles swimming around the bottom of the pack, and in military formation, they march back into the safety of the jar. (edited) 7y

The day Maisy turned fifteen, the foot of a rainbow staircase plunked down on her windowsill.

RebeccasReading It bore the vestiges of some long ago tale, but she recognized it for what it was easily enough, and reconciled herself to climbing it. 7y
queerbookreader Heaving her way up the stairs, Maisy soon realized that she really needed to hit the treadmill more often. 7y
monkeygirlsmama Little did she know how many more times she'd have this same epiphany while on her journey. (edited) 7y

vivastory Maisy was distracted from her epiphany by a bat flying right at her 7y
BeckyWithTheGoodBooks "Don't bats have echolocation," Maisy thought just before the bat crashed into her forehead. 7y
thestarslisten She felt a sudden pain on her forehead and realized the bat bit her. 7y
TK421 She had fleeting moment of fear before she realized that the bat was trying to apologize for biting her. 7y
Avanders It took Maisy a moment of smiling at the cute apologizing bat before it suddenly dawned on her that she could understand the bat's entreaties! (edited) 7y
RaimeyGallant "Sorry about that," said the bat, "but I thought you would taste like bubblegum." 7y
dayanaqela "Perhaps you are a cursed bat who is going to transform to a charming prince after biting a bubblegum-scented girl I suppose?" 7y
ScientistSam "Don't be silly!" the bat replied. "That only works for princes who were turned into kittens." 7y
Bette Nevertheless, this rainbow staircase won't climb itself, I must be on my way, Maisy said to the bat. 7y
Tertubotn "Oh but why?" said the bat. "I can fly you there! Just allow me to grab you by the nose, and we'll be there in no time! " 7y
ChristinaF With that, she grabbed her golden key, a banana, and two packs of Bubble Yum. After lacing them in her drawstring bag, she scooped up Claude, her tabby cat, and jumped on the bat's nose. (edited) 7y
RaimeyGallant When they reached the clouds, the bat put her down and waved goodbye with a wing. 7y
thoulivesreads "Now," she wondered out aloud, stroking Claude absent-mindedly, as she stared ahead, "will be find a pot of gold?" 7y
Billypar She ducked her head down to get below the clouds blocking her vision. A light rainbow mist rose from the ground and what she saw in the distance made her wonder if she had perhaps gotten off on the wrong floor. 7y
ptkpepe98 Because while she saw pot, it wasn't gold. It was green, tall, and ready to harvest. "Am I in Colorado?" 7y
RaimeyGallant "Are you our new harvest queen?" asked a man in coveralls. 7y
litmuggle Really Claude said, one week of rule below this girl and you will all be dead, now bow and call me King you all my slaves now. 7y
ChristinaF At this, everyone charged Claude and he grabbed his mighty Loki staff and Thor's hammer, because he was the worthy one. 7y
TK421 As the battle raged on, Maisy watched while the mighty Claude smote wave after wave of Rainbow land pot farmers. 7y
Avanders Maisy was surprised and, if she was honest with herself, a little sad at the sudden change in Claude's personality, and she considered wandering off and exploring the rest of Rainbow land without him... (edited) 7y
RaimeyGallant The puffy floor beneath Claude opened up, and he was swallowed whole, his screams echoing throughout the land. 7y
edavisbooks After watching him disappear, Maisy turned and came face to face with an angel. Long locks of lavendar cascaded down her back and and exquisite gold adorned her bodice. 7y
RaimeyGallant "Hey," said the angel, "you got a light?" 7y

I'm glad I read this book before I got onto Litsy because the description gives away a huge plot point. (Jacket doesn't mention the spoiler.) The twist at the end was great, but the rest of the story was too thin for me. It's translated from French, so I'll fully admit something was lost in English.
