Last Roald Dahl book for me and this was a good one. This was a gathering of his favorite ghost stories. My favorite was The Corner Shop by Cynthia Asquith.

Favourite Christmas-y book of the year! This is a retelling of sorts of The Christmas Carol - but modern! A secret organisation - Project Scrooge - devotes itself to turning around 1 life a year, often of people who don‘t have a lot of time left to change. Holly, 17 - is a wealthy brat who receives the full treatment but doesn‘t repent & subsequently dies - and is then recruited into the role of Ghost of Christmas Past. Subverts all expectations!

“Oh my God, Amelia,” he murmured in my hair. “Is it possible to be really mad at you and really relieved at the same time?”

Well....I was going to read my book. But it seems a Daisy has fallen asleep on top of it. She‘s just too cute to wake up. So I shall be putting this one on hold until she decides to relinquish it 🤣 #wintergames #SlayBells @MidnightBookGirl @Clwojick @StayCurious

Ghosts | Raina Telgemeier

I enjoyed the themes of anxiety in this book, & related to Cat as she worried about her sister's health. It's difficult for kids to handle that kind of stress & fear (not to mention the occasional guilt), even for adults. Telgameier does a great job of conveying all this in a super kid-friendly way, while also telling a fantastical story about moving to a new place, making new friends, & refamiliarizing yourself w/your family's culture.

Mehso-so

Meh. This was okay. Out of 13 stories there was only 1 that I loved- The Lady and the Fox- and 3 others that I enjoyed. Dinner For One, The Visiting Star and The Shadow. The writing style of some others were hard to get into, some of the endings were confusing and frustrated me, and for it being ghost stories these were rather tame and not creepy which I was hoping for at least 1 story with some creep. It was fine overall but not my favorite.
