Few minutes with my Becoming journal and a book of Christmas ghost stories I got from the shop at work (I don‘t normally read a lot of Christmas books but the globe is knocking it out of the park with the selection this year!) before meeting a friend for lunch. The becoming journal is great and very thoughtful too - I feared it would be a cynical cash grab but it‘s actually rly lovely.

TrishB That journal is on my Christmas list! 11h

“My parents‘ names are Rebecca and Jeremiah, by the way,” he whispered as I approached him.

I laughed, jittery. “Got it. So even though they‘ll be too busy screaming at you, and they can‘t hear me anyway, I‘ll at least be able to address them properly?”

This was a fun read with some solid positive messages. The story combines a family‘s struggle to return to a life in New Orleans with the story of the author of an unpublished comic from the 1950s. There‘s also a great ghost story. It‘s told in chapters interspersed with a few pages of comic panels. I thoroughly enjoyed how all the pieces were woven together.

Daisey @Sace I finished it up this evening and really enjoyed it. Thought you might like to see an example of the art as well. 2d

I know some people didn't really care for this book, but I think it's good. I am loving this little new kind of love between the 2 main characters. It makes my heart flutter just alittle while reading it!!

“Anyway, it doesn‘t matter where we go, because I just want to be wherever you are.”

Upon hearing my words, Joshua froze with one hand on the door he was just about to open. Looking at his back, I bit my lower lip in frustration. Was I really such a moron that I‘d make a proclamation like that without being able to see his response?

After bailing on The Language of Food I'm giving this #inspiredbylitsy title a try. I've listened to the author's Borden Chronicles series and loved it. Thanks for bringing this book to my attention @Daisey !

Daisey Hope you enjoy; I haven‘t had much chance to read any more this week. I‘m curious about the audio but specifically got a print copy for the comics pages. Curious to hear what you think. 2d
Sace @Daisey I do hate that I'll miss the comics pages. I wonder how they will be in an audiobook as well. I'm loving the story so far. 2d
Sace @Daisey I just got to the comic section and it's really cool! There's a full cast and it's like listening to an old radio program. I hate that I'm missing the art, but the audiobook is doing a great job of distinguishing the two stories. 2d

Finished story 1 of 13 in the tagged short story collection.It was fine? I guess? I‘m still mulling it over in my head trying to figure out just what was going on. The writing style is a little difficult so I think that detracted from my enjoyment of it. Overall not bad but didn‘t give me the creep factor. Looking forward to what else this collection has in store. #wintergames #SlayBells @Clwojick @StayCurious @MidnightBookGirl

MidnightBookGirl 1 pt- but you can get more if you tag this under Review instead of Blurb! 1d
RainyDayReading @MidnightBookGirl I didn‘t think I could since I haven‘t finished the entire book and tagging it as a review would list it as having read the entire book when I haven‘t. In any case I think I‘ll just wait till I finish it to post any more about it. Too much hassle to post about each story. 1d
MidnightBookGirl This works too! But I understand not wanting to post after every story! 21 pts! 11h

Probably not as light of a read as I was going for, but still a good one that kept me reading.

For those of you who are late to the party, like me, it‘s about two sisters. The youngest of the two has cystic fibrosis, which comes with its challenges for her and the rest of the family. This touching graphic novel depicts the girls‘ relationship, hardships, growth, and acceptance of death while they learn a bit about their culture. 💕 #middlegrade

ElizaMarie I was late to the story too! But found it so beautiful :) 3d
TheBookAddict @ElizaMarie it sure was beautiful. I loved it! 💕💕💕 2d
