My mom saw the play, then read the book. Now she wants me to determine what happened to the two ‘missing‘ characters. I don‘t know about anyone else, but my track record of solving AC (the OG) mysteries is not good!

Amazing book! The five canonical victims of Jack the Ripper, as people. Women, wives, mothers... all they were allowed to be in Victorian London.

Cinfhen Been meaning to read this one ☝🏾 thanks for the reminder 2mo
Foxyfictionista I'm listening to this one on audible right now. It's so good! 2mo

The Haunting of Hill House | Shirley Jackson

So I read this book, and while I‘m admittedly reading another book while my husband is watching the show, I can‘t follow what is happening. Did they take that many liberties?! #netflix

SoniaC I liked the Netflix show but I saw no connection to the book at all except they both star evil houses. 12mo
ohyeahthatgirl It wasn't really an adaptation, more like a retelling. Hill House is a character and each of the characters' names are Shirley Jackson related, but that's about it. 12mo
BeththeBookDragon @SoniaC @ohyeahthatgirl I was confused... I told my husband ‘Oh I read that book and the show is supposed to be good! You should watch it.‘ Then he kept asking me questions and I had no idea... 12mo

I‘m suspicious of people that brand themselves to begin with, and I suspect that she‘s perpetuating the problem she claims to hate - simply by running a lifestyle blog for women - but it had some good tidbits, so I‘m a solid so-so on this one

I liked this book - the narrator was really good - but had some issues with what I saw as one major character inconsistency: May never really addresses the issue of multiple wives. Not in the way I would have expected from her character. Just me?

Hmmm. I have two boys; one is 9, the other 6. My 9 year old has entered this, and it‘s been a struggle to know how to deal with it - as a Mom. I didn‘t realize it was such a universal thing...
