2 interwoven stories here: Snyder's is set in 1925 Hollywood and focuses on actress Pearl. Stephen King wrote the second which gives us the origin story of an 1880s Old West Outlaw, Skinner Sweet. It's a bit of a new twist on the vampire and the ones are vicious, not sparkly lovers.

The Hallo-Wiener | Dav Pilkey

Last weekend I visited my brother & his family so I had some fun reading to my younger niece. Hallo-wiener was our favorite & the two witch books were our least favorite. It was just over an hour of time for 6 'thons.

I wish I could say the artwork in this book was as good as the cover, this dog is pretty cute but not so much in the book. The grammar leaves a lot to be desired as well. A cute story but needed some extra time, effort, and proofing to be a good book for kids on Halloween. 26 points

This is an adorable kids‘ book about a kids Halloween costume contest. It‘s told in rhyme, and does it well. The artwork is gorgeous with bright vivid colors. Perfect for youngsters, especially siblings. #scarathlon #teamslaughter #screamathon #sbooktober #gothtober #ripreadathon #trickortreadathon #cocoturns50 #readyourway #fallreadathon #nameinthetitle #ghostathon #gothicreadathon @Clwojick @4thhouseontheleft @cocoreads @thespineview

Last week I read these six kids books in just over an hour. I really enjoy looking at the artwork when I read this age range and not just plowing through the words. They were all cute but the tagged was my favorite. Dora was a little weird with pictures & words for the early readers & that took me out of the story. The Day of the Dead Alphabet book put the glossary in back, so I don't know that children would immediately catch on to the words.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Collectively, they're all picks and we're available on Prime Reading as of the 15th. 181 Points for #scarathlon2020 #teamharkness @staycurious

On What Grounds | Cleo Coyle

This cozy mystery was a darned good book with lots of moving parts (which I appreciate in a good mystery), and almost no loose threads that I could detect—even the main character‘s illegal parking in NYC was brought to a conclusion (but there is the question about Mario). It ended with a satisfying surprise as to the culprit(s). I get that the theme of the series is coffee, but it was coffee overload for this tea drinker; I‘ll bet coffee lovers ⬇️

This is book 3 in the series and it‘s much better than book 7. Herbert‘s Ghost was really good. The 👿 was for stories that came with a lesson. Meh. The jokes? Mostly repeats but cute dad funnies. #scarathlon #teamslaughter #screamathon #sbooktober #gothtober #ripreadathon #trickortreadathon #cocoturns50 #readyourway #fallreadathon #nameinthetitle #ghostathon #gothicreadathon @Clwojick @4thhouseontheleft @cocoreads @thespineview
