#Movember #day3 #RescueMe This book was on my #TopReadsOf2017 list, it‘s a great thriller about a young girl that was abducted 3yrs ago, but it‘s also about the investigator the family turns to when all hope is near lost. Naomi is known as the Child Finder, she has a talent for locating & rescuing missing children, because she once was one herself. It has a lot of deep & dark emotion in the story, and does it very well.

Cinfhen I bought this book over the summer and I‘m looking forward to reading it 1mo
Lizpixie @Cinfhen I hope you enjoy it as much as I did lovely💚👀🧚🏻 1mo
Cinfhen I think there is a sequel 1mo
Lizpixie @Cinfhen I didn‘t know that! Thanks, I‘ll have to track it down. I‘m kinda on a library only streak at the moment, money has refused to grow on my trees🌳 #moneystootighttomention (edited) 1mo

#greatfulreads #day3 #over500pages I read all 910 pages of this Michener monster, and it was worth it😄

Kdgordon88 This is a favorite! Great choice! 1mo
ljuliel In my Top Ten ...first 100 pages are a slog, but after that, it‘s terrific. 1mo
Lynnsoprano @ljuliel I think that‘s true for most of Michener‘s books. The only one I really wasn‘t crazy about was Alaska. 1mo

ljuliel @lynnsoprano The only 2 of his I‘ve read so far are the one mentioned here and Chesapeake. Both very good. I want to tackle TEXAS sometime, but I‘ll have to be in the right mood. I‘ve started it before and it‘s very good. Just wasn‘t a good time to stick with it. (edited) 1mo
Blaire I need to read some Michener, I remember both my parents loving his books when I was a child. 1mo
quirkyreader This one is on the TBR list. The copy I have is falling apart to due to its age. Time for some rubber bands. 1mo
Crazeedi The first Michener I read was this one, in 6th grade, and it was probably 900 pages too 1mo

TheReadingMermaid Ooooo 😗 Good one! One of my absolute favorites! Max Schreck is unparalleled in my opinion 🖤🧟‍♀️ 2mo
Bookwomble @TheReadingMermaid Have you seen Willem Dafoe playing Schreck as an actual vampire in the film Shadow of the Vampire? It's a fantastic homage to Nosferatu. 2mo
TheReadingMermaid @Bookwomble YAAAASSS girl!!! I love that movie so much and Willem Dafoe does such a good job!!! He's damn near perfect! 2mo

Kimberlone @Bookwomble I have heard of the movie but have never seen it. I love stories about Hollywood, though, and I bet I would really like it. Do you know if it‘s available anywhere to stream? 2mo
Bookwomble @Kimberlone I can't see it anywhere to stream, but you should be able to pick it up fairly easily on DVD or bluray. I forgot John Malkovich and Eddie Izzard were in it, too. I definitely need to watch this again soon 🧛🏻‍♂️ 2mo
Bookwomble @TheReadingMermaid He is an amazing actor, and really funny and scary in this. Not something just anyone could pull off, I think. 2mo
TheReadingMermaid @Kimberlone it's free to watch on Amazon prime right now!!!! 2mo
TheReadingMermaid @Bookwomble I know and I almost forgot that John Malkovich was in it as well. Not too keen on Eddie Izzard but he does a good job. I guess I just see him as a stand-up comedian more than anything. 2mo
Kimberlone @Bookwomble @TheReadingMermaid awesome, I will definitely watch that sometime this month! (edited) 2mo
Bookwomble @TheReadingMermaid I think it was quite an early acting role for Eddie, so perhaps a little bit clunky? On the other hand, the character he's playing is as thick as a brick! 2mo
Bookwomble @Kimberlone Enjoy 😊🦇⚰🖍 (ok, the last one is the crayon emoji, but it looks a bit like a stake 😀) 2mo

There is no creepier image of a coffin, than the Harry Clarke illustration for Edgar Allen Poe's The Premature Burial.
