#ScarathlonDailyPrompts 11. #Dark and 2. #Creature &
#OminousOctober 18. #Enchanting

A #LTER ebook arc I won some time ago. Some dark folk stories, some fairy tale retellings, some urban myths. Very enjoyable.

So I won this book on #LibraryThing but I didn‘t get the ebook, so I borrowed from KU so I could review it. I probably just shouldn‘t have read it. It‘s a vampire reality tv show… I‘m not a reality tv person, especially the dating ones. 😬😬

I decided to jump into the #LibraryThing reading challenge called ASIAN BOOK CHALLENGE - AUGUST 2022 : NIPPON - JAPANESE AUTHORS - with this book saved for me by a fellow BookCrosser. #Japanese fiction is my favorite read of all! ❤️🌸

SqueakyChu @mdm139 No. i‘ll add those to my wishlist now. Thx! I miss you guys!! (edited) 4mo
SqueakyChu The first story had me going to utube because I wanted to learn more about the art of playing the samisen and playing the koto, both traditional Japanese musical instruments. 4mo

My newest read is this novel which someone serendipitously slipped into my #LittleFreeLibrary. I had been looking around to see if I could find a book by an author from #India to use for a #LibraryThing book challenge to read a book by an Indian author. This is a debut novel which already hooked me so I gave it the go-ahead. It‘s a Book of the Month edition. Is that why the font in this book is unusually large? Weird!

#MarvellousMay #Readathon Check In :

I actually reached and surpassed my goal 😀
I finally finished the #Librarything EarlyReviewer ARC Dark Factory by Kathe Koja (Rather underwhelmed... 😑) - that was my goal.
Started Mine by Rachael Tamayo and finished it in five days AND started my next read The Unreliables.
So - success! 😁

Thank you @Andrew65 - it seems you got me out of my reading slump! 😊🙏

I like this book and the style it‘s written in. It‘s a library book I borrowed for a #LibraryThing reading challenge to read a book whose author is from one of the “Stans” (ASIAN BOOK CHALLENGE 2022 - IN MAY IT'S THE "STANS"). The author is from #Pakistan, and this story begins in #Karachi. I set aside the other four books I‘m reading to start this book! ?

I was lucky enough to get a copy of this from the #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewers program back in 2020, and I‘m so glad I finally picked it up. A moving family memoir but even more remarkable for the gorgeous, dense writing and for its meditations on California. I now have a long list of things about my state, past and present, that I need to know more about! I will absolutely read more from Atleework if she writes it.

I‘ve heard so many good things about this book. I‘m reading it now as part of a shared read on the #TIOLI challenges for #LibraryThing.

SqueakyChu I know this book is about time travel, but my mind is already traveling back to #1970, this book‘s publication date, in which a character has an #MG. Those were the days! ❤️ (edited) 7mo
SqueakyChu I can already tell I‘m going to love this book. I‘m on page 19. (edited) 7mo
