Since I couldn‘t do #DeweysReadathon last weekend, I‘m doing it today, and having the loveliest reading time!

There is so much I liked about this book starting with the epigraph. : “Yes, I am Daddy. —Graham Simpkins, The Holiday” 😄 The first half was so strong. I went into this book knowing there were some elements of purity culture from Winnie‘s past but I was not expecting such an accurate portrayal. It may seem extreme to people who didn‘t grow up in this world, but I promise you it‘s not.

MatchlessMarie I am not a fan of the surprise pregnancy trope which shows up in the second half. And I find myself wondering how the book could have ended without one. This book was ultimately a pick for me. I love the continuous theme of found family in these Christmas Notch books and was so happy to see Winnie overcome some of her religious trauma. Kallum made such a great himbo golden retriever hero. 4mo
MatchlessMarie FYI - I was surprised that there were no content warnings for this book because there was plenty of triggering content in this one from religious trauma to a miscarriage scare.

This had been a great reading weekend with so many readathons!

I managed to almost finish the 5 books I'd planned for #OutstandingOctober (just a little bit left of the 5th one) and I even squeezed in a couple of additional unplanned books. @Andrew65

I finally got around to picking this up as a final readathon read this morning, and it was just what I expected. This story is so well told in words and art, but it‘s also a complete roller coaster for the emotions.

Of course I dropped everything to listen to the 25 hour long Pucking Around audio book version when it was released last week. Totally forgot about the Practical Magic reference. 🕯️😆 #Scarathlon #BatBrigade #deweysreadathon #31by31 #BookSpinBingo #Falling4Books #Rushathon #Spookoween #OutstandingOctober #LittenListen

I've reached the halfway point of my third book and this feels like a good place to end my readathon run. I've had a great time picking out books throughout the day and then settling in for some dedicated reading time. Felt like each book was better than the last and now I'm ending my readathon with an absolute banger.

I really needed this omg 😭

This Hercule Poirot story is a low pick for me. It's not among my favourite Agatha Christie works, but it does have some very surprising twists and it features Ariadne Oliver, a character that I always enjoy.

TheAromaofBooks I had similar feelings about this one. 4mo
AnnR 🌻🎃🍂 That's disappointing this ended up being a low pick. I'm on a Christie reading kick but I might skip this one. 4mo

kwmg40 @AnnR It's not terrible, but there are so many really good Poirots that you could go for one of the others and leave this for later. 4mo

The stories in this collection really drew me in. Some are spooky, some are creepy and some are heartwarming, but all of them are exceedingly imaginative.

I don‘t tend to watch horror movies, so this wasn‘t really my style but it was a good October listen.
