tracey38 Didn't know it had a day but I stayed in and read all day, too, on my holiday off work. 1mo
FlowerFairy @tracey38 I didn‘t realize it was today until halfway through, but was already living my best introvert life, so carried on. 🤣 1mo

There's nothing better than a collection of ghost stories and a cup of hot coco by the fire on a cold evening.

Not all the stories in this worked for me but that‘s fairly par for the course with me and short story anthologies. This gets a pick because a few of the stories were really surprising, and because it was a nice easy read that helped get me in the mood for the weather we‘ve been having lately.

Processing books today and came across this sweet #underthedustcover
I love this book because it gave me a better understanding of one of the most culturally appropriated and misunderstood international holidays. After reading this, I'm thinking the Day of the dead, Thanksgiving and the Passover seder all celebrate the coming together in peace and memory a moment of peace and reflection.

Watch the read-aloud by the author. My students loved it https://youtu.be/1pgeQsBuhmk

IndoorDame That may be the best read-aloud I‘ve ever watched! He‘s awesome! 3mo
mandarchy @IndoorDame i thought so too. I can't stand most read alouds, because I'm competitive? Weird? I'm not sure. But he is great at it 3mo
bthegood thank you - saved this for my grandson - 3mo

This book came with my #scholasticbookfair with great timing. It was interesting to read and see what we thought we knew about the Day of the Dead and what we actually learned from the book. It's really a beautiful family celebration. It's a meaningful tradition that deserves to be understood and not appropriated and trivialized.

A grief-filled ghost story, set during WWI, which might be especially hard for anyone who has been pregnant or is a parent.

This isn‘t *just* a ghost story (they never are). It‘s a tale about who is believed, when, & why. The author boldly delves into themes of class, gender, & mental health (without skirting anachronism). There‘s lots of gray area (particularly regarding trust & morality), which is exactly as liminal as a ghost story should be.

monalyisha My one complaint is that the author never returns to the inscription from Gerald in Stella‘s book! Did she forget to tie up that thread? Otherwise, this was an aching, haunting story that I didn‘t find scary…just horribly sad. Frank sets herself up for this to be a series and though it‘s far weightier than serial literature tends to be, I hope she‘s able to continue. I would certainly read (listen to) more. The audio is a very British pleasure. 3mo
Caroline2 I really liked this one too. 👍 3mo
