This has been on my bookshelf for probably 20 years. 😳 Back from my Mystery Guild membership days, pre-children. It has moved with us at least once. This is the last in a series, and as a rule, I don‘t like to read books out of order but....#clearthebookshelves. #thisirritatesmyhusband #buthehasmoviesthatoldhesneverwatched 😉🤣📚

1) Paranormal, supernatural, real scary stories...literally anything. The only genre where I will read and thoroughly enjoy nonfiction.
2) the Scream franchise. It‘s funny, gory, and scary all at the same time. Also Halloween 2018 bc it was just. so. good.
3) even tho it‘s for kids and not *really* scary, some of the stories in it have made me anxious about real life stuff even as an adult.

i-am-papercrane 4) I watched a the first season of Slasher (really good, but only the first season) and I keep meaning to watch Scream. American Horror Story is also up there.
5) Either or, but I prefer gore.
6) What is a horror movie/book you watched/read as a child that still sticks with you?

veritysalter Stephen King‘s ‘Children of the Corn‘, I was far too young, still get to the same point and can‘t watch beyond that now, thirty years later. 4d
teebe Good question! I avidly watched horror movies as a kid so there‘s a lot that have stayed with me for different reasons. The Exorcist is one of them. 4d

MidnightBookGirl The scene from Poltergeist where the one dude starts tearing the skin off his face. 4d
BookwormAHN I don't remember the name of the movie but the ending was a demon coming up from the floor and pulling someone down into hell with them. 3d
ulrichyumiodd I was very easily scared as a child and stayed far away from any horror, haha. I only read tame horror books written for kids - perhaps like Goosebumps? The actual series was in French, and I totally forgot the name 😓 Nothing very scary, anyway! 3d
j9brown The scene from The Fly where he arm wrestles some guy at a bar and breaks his wrist - I'm still uncomfortable with arm wrestling! 3d
Twainy #6 - Book, The Shining. Movie, The Exorcist. 3d

Isn't this true for all of us? Imagination is so powerful! Sometimes we have lived a scenario so much in our mind that the scenario really happening/not happening doesn't really matter any more.

I awwdore this girl!!!!😍

marleed I told myself I couldn‘t purchase this book until the day I was ready to read it. I didn‘t get there in Oct so now I‘m hoping some shop along my way will place it on sale with their fall goods! 5d
rrkreader @marleed This looks like a book that will hook us in whether we are ready or not. 😊 It stayed in my shelf for max 2 days & now I think I'll put it back in only after am done with it. There are plenty of books lounging in my shelf for years & am yet to get around to them. Don't know why this book pulled me in. It's bossy 😄 5d
marleed Isn‘t it funny how that happens. I‘m so close to so many thrifting opportunities or books that I‘m trying to get in the habit of only buying a book at full price when I can startup that day. That sounds good, doesn‘t it!? Now let me show yo my shelf where that didn‘t really happen :( But I am getting better! 5d
rrkreader @marleed We all are 😊... Each book is a path to self discovery & why or when we pick any book depends on whether we are ready for that self discovery yet or not. Or so I say when I feel a pang of guilt looking at my TBR 😊 5d

I love this dialogue. People tend to judge a person's intelligence or even emotional needs/strength based on how social they are. But that's hardly the only parameter to gauge a person's intelligence or nature isn't it?? This dialogue gets me. 👌👍

I am loving the info bits in the background. Reminds me of my childhood where I paid more attention to the background than the characters , atleast in the beginning.

Finally started reading it!! It's been only 2 days since I got it in my physical TBR list, but regretted putting it off even for such a short span. It's funny & sweet, am already loving Deja's personality!! This picture illustrates her charm 🤩😄...

Adorable. Love the friendship between the main characters. And the art is brilliant. I really want to visit a pumpkin patch now. 5/5

I inadvertently began with book 3 in the series, but I didn‘t realize it until I went to check out the next one.

Three middle aged friends run the Cackleberry Club - a breakfast and lunch cafe with a book nook and a knitting nest (This is a cozy after all 😂) However, the murders are decidedly un-cozy. While prepping for the restaurant‘s big Halloween bash, Suzanne finds herself in the crosshairs as she helps Sheriff Doogie investigate.

Chrissyreadit That sounds like my dream business, with wine, coffee or tea available. 6d
mabell @Chrissyreadit Yes, definitely! Do you knit, too? 5d
Chrissyreadit @mabell I crochet. I knit when I was very young and have no functional skill now 🤣 5d

mabell @Chrissyreadit It‘s like riding a bike! 😄 I haven‘t done much crocheting, but my knitting tub is waiting in the garage - patiently. 😆 It‘s probably been 10 years since I‘ve picked anything up, but I‘ve been thinking about getting it back out lately! 5d
Chrissyreadit @mabell I‘m crocheting scarves right now for my daughter and niece but I want to learn how to read patterns. I do everything in my head. I remember how complicated my mom and grandmas knitting patterns seemed. But there is something amazing and peaceful about it. What‘s on your wishlist to make? 5d
mabell @Chrissyreadit That‘s impressive you can do it in your head! I use patterns. I‘ve done pretty much everything on my wish list - sweaters, lace, socks, etc. I think if I picked it back up I would do more socks. They are more interesting and quicker than a big piece like a sweater (rows and rows of stitches 🤪) I have this book I really like that I‘ll post some from! 4d
Chrissyreadit @mabell thanks!! For sharing! I so want to learn how to make socks!!! (edited) 4d
mabell @Chrissyreadit Socks are so fun to make - and useful! There are some tricky bits to them, but once you get the hang of it, you could do it in your sleep. I‘m excited to dig out this book and post some snippets. It‘s a good one! 3d
