I know this one has mix reviews/ratings but it worked wonderful for me. I loved the relationship between Ben and her grandfather and later with her grandmother and how they accepted and respected Ben. That ending was so sad but at the same time understandable due to Ben circumstances. I enjoyed it so much. I also like this author‘s writing style and retellings. I haven‘t read other genres by her but soon. 3.8/4. Thank you @mabell

3 ⭐️ I thought the story was really interesting, that is until the third part, which I thought was a little bit long and thought that it could have been a bit shorter. #2022 #fiction #bookstagram #bookreview #fantasy #horror

Read this for #fearfulfall

Cinfhen Yeah!! Lots of people mentioned this book might have been better with some tighter editing. It definitely started to drag by part 3 1mo

My library doesn't have the book for #FearfulFall but I thought I'd share some of my favorite costumes that I tortured Watson with over the years.

👽Elliott from ET
🍺In Pup-toberfest lederhosen
🦇That time he looked jacked as Batman (seriously, did he work out?)
☠A pirate with my guy (Alien/Spaceballs crossover)

I'll link two of my favorite artists for this time of year in the comments.
@Cinfhen @BarbaraBB

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Type O Negative is essential listening for me this time of year. (RIP) Peter Steele's voice is deep and creepy, yet hypnotic and sensual. https://open.spotify.com/artist/0blJzvevdXrp21YeI2vbco 1mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I'm not a big fan of the Halloween novelty songs for general listening, so another artist who seems to get a lot of play as I'm enjoying a general malaise and ennui about the impending end of another year is Lana Del Rey. Her music just hits differently when the leaves are dying and I'm starting to cozy up with big cardigans and crunch leave with my boots, especially her Born To Die album. https://open.spotify.com/artist/00FQb4jTyendYWaN8pK0wa 1mo
suvata Awww! I have a Boston Terrier too but she refuses to get dressed up. She gets all bug eyed and nervous when I try. I‘m sure you know what I mean. 1mo

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @suvata Aaw! I know what you mean. We got him young and he shivered outside. He quickly got used to jackets or a hoodie and is fine with it in short doses. However, we must earn it with a chase and accept that we will always be greeted with a look that says "not this shit again?". 1mo
suvata @Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Regardless, he is quite handsome. 1mo
TheSpineView So cute! 1mo
Cinfhen OMG!!! These photos are too damn cute!!!!! Watson is ADORABLE ♥️🐾 so happy you shared the photos…sorry you couldn‘t get a copy of the book 📕 excited you‘ll be joining for #IndependentWomen 1mo
Cinfhen And I totally agree, Lana Del Ray screams cozy fall weather - 1mo

All these spooky reads, it‘s so not like me and I did a movie -what the world ?!

Fun #fearfulfall weekend as well as #sundaybuddyread helping me out!!!

Fun fun fun !

Read for the #FearfulFall #BuddyRead I‘m giving it a soft pick. By no means perfect, I wanted more plot & character development, but it kept me engaged, I liked Ben & found this an interesting YA take on a sequel. I listened to the audiobook which was well done-the downside being that it would have been a good word search points earner for #Scarathlon2022 #TeamMonsterMash but impossible to drive, listen & record words.🤷🏻‍♀️Read/listened for⬇️

Cinfhen Great review!!! I think I approached this book from the wrong angle instead of enjoying it for what it was. 1mo
Texreader That‘s the biggest bummer about audiobooks—crazy hard to count words! 1mo

This was an interesting take on Sleepy Hollow. I liked how Christina Henry used the characters from the classic tale to tell what happened after Ichabod Crane disappeared. I do admit that it took me a few chapters in for me to get into the story, and I felt that part 3 was a little too long. But it was still enjoyable. 3.5 ⭐️

#FearfulFall songs

I don‘t have a favorite one but these one remind me Halloween:

I put a Spell on You (Hocus Pocus movie)
This is Halloween (from Nightmare Before Christmas-this song is related with Halloween)
Others songs I like:
Somebody‘s Watching Me

My ring tone and text message tone
Tick tack from the Dark the Netflix series
