And the Trees Crept In | Dawn Kurtagich

Listened to a little more of this audiobook last night for the #24b4monday readathon. This is excellent as an audiobook. The narrator is fantastic and the eerie background music and noises totally immerse you in the story. Usually when I listen to an audiobook, I‘m able to do other activities like clean or crochet, but with this one I just want to sit and listen.

7 hours 20 minutes so far for #24b4monday

Finished this last night as part of the #24b4monday readathon. This book was creepy and atmospheric. I didn‘t particularly like the ending but the rest of the book was very good. ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

No reading tonight. We went to a nearby town where they perform the dance to Michael Jackson‘s “Thriller” a week before Halloween every year. This year they had almost 300 people dress up and dance through the middle of town. It was so cool!

1. I‘ll be very happy if I can get 12 hours done
2. Definitely a mood reader
3. Chai tea or hot chocolate to drink and lots of chocolate and popcorn to eat
4. Depends on the day and if I have to work the following day or not.
5. Don‘t be afraid to switch up your reading style. I find I do best when I switch between regular books and audiobooks.
6. Thriller and horror

I love my kindle and ebooks but sometimes you have to have a physical copy of a book to truly appreciate it. This book is absolutely gorgeous. The illustrations, quote pages, and section break full-page illustrations are breathtaking.

#chillingphotochallenge #monster #scarathlon @Clwojick

Clwojick Agreed! I tend to swoon more over covers and illustrations when it's a physical book. 1mo
Cedricsmom Agreed! Mine arrived today and I had no idea it would be so lovely. The artwork, the colors, all of it. Perfect purchase for the season and a great reference too❤️ 1mo

Finished this short GN for the #scarathlon #scaryscavengerhunt for a book that is part of a series.
I love Rick Geary‘s work. His drawing and lettering are so evocative of the Victorian era. I already know and have read about all of the cases he features in his GNs, but it‘s like reading about the case for the first time with his wonderful illustrations.

I 💜 this book! I started it a month or two ago and put it down after a few chapters. I don‘t remember now what turned me off. But I picked it back up when I saw it at my library and I‘m so glad I did! Not only is the book fantastic, it‘s given me a new author that I haven‘t read before that has quite the back catalog. 🧡
