The Illustrated Man | Ray Bradbury

This book, overall, was one of the most amazing books I have read. The book itself is composed of separate stories, all based on different settings, however, the very one thing that does not change throughout the entire book is the conflict between humans and technologies, which is what people have always been thinking about.

Halloween Tree | Ray Bradbury
Mehso-so

😔 I didn't get this book. Maybe if I were in my tweens I would have liked it more. I didn't think there was much of a plot. There was very little tension. When I finished, I was like....is that it? THAT's the story? It is by Ray Bradbury so I probably expected more. For me, it would have worked better as a short story. It was really just a journey through the history of Halloween. Wikipedia would have sufficed.(less)

UnidragonFrag I bought this one to read for Halloween. I didn't get to it in time, but it's got such stellar reviews and I was kinda looking forward to it. But now? Hm. 2w
Anna from Gustine @UnidragonFrag You might like it. It's all relative. I was expecting something like Something Wicked this Way Comes by Bradbury which I haven't read in years, but remember it definitely having a plot and high stakes. Perhaps I just wasn't the right audience. 😕 2w
UnidragonFrag It's definitely for kids, unlike Something Wicked, which is probably the biggest difference. I don't know, I've been leaning away from MG/YA lately so I might not like it. 2w

Realizing that I saved this & never shared it!
#wondrouswednesday

1) Adam & I over the years: Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Calvin & Hobbes; Fidel Castro (beards are hard!) & Mother Nature (I should be sad); The Route of All Evil (or Highway to Hell) & The Bare/Bear Minimum. (They aren‘t all “couple‘s costumes.”)

2) I‘m passionate about:

•The way that green trees look against a blue sky.
•Breakfast foods.
•The laughter of little children. 😂😈👇🏻

monalyisha *cont‘d: I mean that (“the laughter of little children”) in the most genuine & least creepy way possible. I promise I‘m not planning to lure them to my hut & steal their youth.

3) Will do! 🙏🏻

JanuarieTimewalker13 Hahahaha!! Love the Route 666 shirt!!! 2w
monalyisha @JanuarieTimewalker13 Thanks! It‘s a road sign I made out of poster board & some string. I was pretty proud of it. 🙃 I wish you could see the details better of my Mother Nature costume, too! I made a bird‘s nest for my head with little robin‘s eggs in it & moss shoes (which smelled *really* weird! 😂). (edited) 2w

Perfect collection of spooky short stories for October. Some were very odd, some were touching, some scary, just a beautiful collection!
