Joyland | Stephen King
post image

My first Stephen King novel and I was not disappointed!! (Not that I thought I would be). A light who-dun-it with suspense, love, emotion, and a perfect Coney Island feeling amusement park set in the 70s. A little bit of scare but not nearly as much as I thought it would have considering the author. #stephenking #joyland #photography #amusementpark #ferriswheel #horrorhouse #funhouse

Using the Chicago World Fair as his cover, HH Holmes lured guests to his hotel, which would later be deemed the "Murder Castle," where he would trap, torture, and kill his victims all in the confines of his very own building - his #funhouse !?

Billypar I've seen this book so much, but I had no idea that's what it's about! 5y
Mdargusch So chilling! There is a lot of info on the World‘s Fair @cinfhen almost like two books in one. But the fact that the fair ever got built was shocking too. 5y

Howls Moving Castle | Diana Wynne Jones

#getmovin #funhouse

A fun house to live in would be a moving castle right? This is such a cool MG fantasy from the 80s. Sophie, knows that as she is the eldest daughter and lives in a fairytale world, she will have to lead a dull life as she will fail at any quests. Then she goes and gets herself cursed and turned into an old hag and decides she may as well do whatever the heck she wants. Adventure ensues!

RainyDayReading Loved the Studio Ghibli film! Never got my hands on the book 🙈 5y

Centique @RainyDayReading @Stephen11 it‘s been a few years since I read it but my teen daughter read it recently and loved it, so I think it holds up well! 😊 5y

Cinfhen The cover is misleading ~ it looks scary but it‘s probably more interesting and fascinating 5y
Abe @Cinfhen it is more interesting/fascinating than scary. 4y

The Funhouse | Dean Koontz
post image

#GetMovin #Funhouse
When I was in junior/high school I was big into horror. I also worked evenings in a pharmacy with a paperback book rack so I worked my way through a lot of them on quiet nights. This book published in 1980, first came out under Owen West (one of Dean Koontz's pen names) & was a novelization of a 1981 horror film but production on the film took so long the book came out first.🤡You definitely want to get movin' in a funhouse!😱

DebinHawaii P.S. The tag line of the movie was "Pay to get in. Pray to get out!" ?? 5y
Cinfhen That sounds vaguely familiar 🤡 5y
Reviewsbylola Omg just read the last line of the Litsy blurb and it had me laughing. Sounds pretty good! 5y
Thestar1685 I haven‘t seen the movie so I think I will read the book first. 5y

The Toymakers | Robert Dinsdale
post image

#GetMovin #day9 #Funhouse This is a new novel about a magic toystore in 1940s London. It brings a magical funhouse Of fantastic toys to kids living through the worst of conditions, food shortages, bombs & the constant threat of death. It totally reminds me of Mr Magoriums Magic Emporium, my daughters favourite movie as a kid. What kid, or adult for that matter, wouldn‘t want to spend hours inside, playing & just basking in the magic.✨🎪🤹🏻‍♀️✨

Cathythoughts 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 5y

Lizpixie @Cathythoughts @Wanderingwithwords thank you @Cinfhen it‘s so pretty! I really wanted the signed first edition from Goldsboro but money was a bit tight the last few months. This one is still a pretty hardcover, just no signature(bummer) 5y
LeahBergen This sounds delightful! 5y
Centique Magical toy shop? Say no more! Stacked! 😍 5y
