#Movember #day4 #GirlGoneWild This was my top read of 2017. I loved this book, not only was it a great thriller, it taught me about a part of the US I‘d never heard of before. Helena is a wife & mother, but she has a secret. She was born in the marsh of the Upper Michigan Peninsula after her mother was kidnapped by her father. Growing up wild, she learnt hunting & bushcraft & adored her father, before realising the truth of her upbringing.

For this prompt I went to an oldie but goodie that is always guaranteed to make me laugh. And when I say old, I mean OLD. Can you see the price on the cover? We‘ve had this since we were married, I think, and we‘ll be celebrating 48 years next month.
#ChillingPhotoChallenge #day4 #BlackCat My library is in a bit of a shambles right now, so trying to find a book to fit this prompt was hard! Luckily, I remembered this Phryne Fisher book has Ember sitting on her knee. Book Phryne has two adopted daughters, one of which found a little black kitten on her windowsill. Now an official member of the crime fighting family, Ember is spoilt rotten. #TeamSlaughter #Scareathlon 2points #PointsTotal-33

So let's get real here. Academic book covers aren't exactly exemplars of great design, at least not in soc sciences & humanities - don't @ me if STEM text covers are awesome (note - they are not). They are usually a) boring as hell, b) super ugly, or c) barely adequate.
This one, however, knocks it out of the park. And the essays inside are great too!
