I enjoyed this one almost as much as Matilda! I think Miranda Richardson‘s narration was spot on and recommend the audio. I especially loved Grandmama. #authoramonth

I have never seen the movie version. Is it worth checking out?

JamieArc I loved the movie as a child (though parts of it terrified me). I saw they are remaking the film - can‘t wait to see it! 1d
Soubhiville Yay, this is a my favorite Dahl! I‘m glad you liked it. I have not seen the movie. 1d
Reggie Yeah, I think you‘d really like the movie. It has Angelica Houston as the head witch. It‘s pretty good. 21h

As usual I‘m late. 😬 Since I made the graphic I actually finished Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy and Killer Instinct. The Witches should be in the “in progress” section now. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I‘m off today and tomorrow so I‘m hoping to finish The Gauntlet, complete Beneath a Meth Moon (it‘s under 200 pages), and start Midnight Taxi Tango. This will depend on if I‘m distracted by catching up on Litsy or movie watching. 😉

I think this, #Booked2020, and my Goodreads goal are going to be my only challenges next year. I will also participate as much as I can in #authoramonth .

From @MrBook :
It‘s simple: Every month read a book based on that month‘s theme. Share the book you read on the 29th of each month (Feb. has 29 in 2020 😆) with the #ReadWithMrBook and that month‘s hashtags—for example, January‘s is #1WordTitle.

HotMessJess Oooh can we pick our own themes too?! 2w
Bookzombie @HotMessJess For @MrBook ‘s challenge? I don‘t think so. 2w

To complete #Booked2019 , I have set aside The Light Between Oceans from last week‘s forecast and will return to it once I complete the challenge.
I‘m excited to read The Gauntlet.
I started Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy this evening. 🎧
The Kitchen is to shake it up and it‘s due at the library soon.

The Gods of Gotham | Lindsay Faye

Pickpick

Thank you @Chrissyreadit for recommending this on audio. It was so good! Set in NYC in 1845, Timothy Wilde reluctantly becomes a copper star in the newly formed police force. He is set on the trail of a serial killer when a girl covered in blood runs into him as he returns home. Faye‘s use of the criminal slang of the time, called Flash, works really well. Although set in different historical periods, this reminded me a little of The Alienist.⬇️

Bookzombie Unexpectedly this fills the #politicalintrigue slot for #Booked2019 as politics play a part in the story.
I‘m also a little sad that this is only a trilogy as I already love several of the characters.

Cinfhen Didn‘t know it‘s a trilogy! I‘m definitely going to pick up my print copy beginning of 2020. It‘s been on the #BottomTBR #Booked2020 for too long 4w

Cinfhen I started with God‘s on audio but I feel like I need to read the book or at least start with the book because I was having difficulty trying to keep characters straight. How are u finding it??? Are u reading or listening??? 1mo
Bookzombie @Cinfhen I‘m listening to Gods too. I find I do have to focus on it more than some audios. I think it might be the words being used for the time period, like “kinchen” over child. It also took me a minute to get the characters straight, but it seems okay now. I‘m only about 28% in though. Audio time had been limited. 1mo

I noticed people asking about this feature on Litsy so I thought I would repost the info from @Litsy earlier this year.

From @Litsy :To mute tags, you have to do it on the Litsy website. What you do there will affect the app too. (We plan to include this in the app in the future, but app changes take longer to do.)

To mute tags, sign in and go to https://www.litsy.com/web/hashtags . The page is also found on Settings/Import, at the bottom.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks This doesn‘t work for me 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1mo
Bookzombie @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks That‘s so strange. I‘m sorry it doesn‘t work for you. 😕 1mo

Bookzombie Yes, they should show up like in picture as you add them. I enter them with the symbol each time. Hmm, @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks said it doesn‘t work for her so I don‘t know if there are exceptions. If you use Facebook, you could message Litsy on Onward Litsy to have them look into it. 1mo

This YA book includes gory deaths and a high body count. I loved it. I finished the last 2/3 in one go. Convicted felons are sent to Alcatraz 2.0 where everyone can watch them on The Postman app. Sanctioned killers are sent to the island to hunt them down and the world is alerted to watch the executions live on the app. Dee is innocent, but will she be able to survive Alcatraz 2.0 and prove her innocence. #Booked2019 #socialmediafocus

The Bus on Thursday | Shirley Barrett
post image
Pickpick

After a bad breakup, cancer diagnosis, and a mastectomy, Eleanor accepts a teacher position in a remote town. Her predecessor has disappeared and was perfect according to the residents, which is a hard act to follow. This is a weird, funny, weird book. Eleanor is a hot mess. It‘s uncertain as you read her unpublished blog, if things are real or in her imagination. This definitely leans more toward Bridget Jones‘ Diary than The Exorcist even ⬇️

Bookzombie with the strangeness and horrific parts. I remembered about half-way through that I wasn‘t a big fan of BJD (book, not movie) and I struggled with this one a bit too. After finishing and pondering it, I decided I really liked it. I‘m still not sure what to think about the ending though. If you have read it, what do you think (please use spoiler tag)? #screamathon 1mo
CarolynM I found this one funny to begin with but it made me increasingly uncomfortable as it went on. I've heard it suggested that the cancer had spread to her brain and was causing delusions, hence all the weird goings on. That kind of makes sense and if so, maybe the end is the pressure on her brain becoming too much and shutting down. But maybe not too, maybe she just crashed her car into a bus. 1mo
Reggie I have no idea what happened either but what about that vacuum cleaner demonstration? Lol 1mo
See All 11 Comments
Bookzombie @CarolynM I have been pondering and I keep leaning towards the theory that the cancer spread and everything is a delusion. There were certain things that made me uncomfortable too. 1mo
Bookzombie @Reggie It was creepy! I wish I hadn‘t returned this to library. I find myself wanting to go back a reread certain bits. 1mo
vivastory I'm definitely intrigued! I know that @readordierachel had a similar experience with this one 1mo
readordierachel @vivastory I did! I'm with you @Bookzombie in that I was dismayed that it was more BJD than horror. The ending tho 👇🏼 1mo
readordierachel The cancer spreading to the brain thing makes sense, but I find that explanation so unsatisfying! I really want to believe that one dude was a weird demon, she was possessed, and then being, like, taken to hell on that bus at the end. 1mo
Bookzombie @readordierachel I understand. If it‘s the cancer spreading, it‘s something real causing her to hallucinate or whatever. I think I would have liked what you said or that the guy was a demon or Satan trying to have a baby with a human better. I also expected her to have more interactions with other strange people in the town. Basically, I probably wanted more horror. Lol. 1mo
Bookzombie @readordierachel I just realized that what I wanted is sort of Rosemary‘s baby. Lol. 1mo
readordierachel Yes, exactly! That would have been awesome. Haha. 1mo

The Tenth Girl | Sara Faring

Mehso-so

I‘m kind of between so-so and pan for this one. The book starts off great and I think Faring writes really well. The setting of a creepy boarding school isolated at the tip of Argentina is perfect. Mavi is on the run and takes the job as English teacher. It‘s really hard to talk about the plot without spoilers. The story is gothic and creepy, and then the twist(?) or big reveal(?) happens and I almost quit. I was confused, but plugged on. ⬇️

💜 I already used a version of this on Twitter (Bookzombie08, I think. I don‘t really use Twitter.) I love books 📚 and I like zombies 🧟‍♀️. I also devour books like a zombie devours brains. 😉

marleed Oh I recently moved back to Kansas City from SA. I loved it! I lived at the Pearl in an apt 2 floors above the Twig bookstore. It was an amazing experience! 2mo
Bookzombie @marleed Wow! I‘m sure that was an amazing place to live in! 🙂 2mo
marleed It was awesome and will always be my happy place - 100 steps from door to river walk!! It was home for 5 years. I‘ll always miss a weekend farmers market happening beneath my balcony. But the novelty of a splash pad beneath me faded fast! And the Bakery Lorraine at the bottom of my steps!!! 2mo

This is an important book to have on shelves for representation and better understanding for all ages. It‘s also an uplifting story about two sisters. I love the illustrations. The colors are so vibrant, especially the blue.

I really enjoyed this picture book about the love of reading. It‘s all about what we read, where we love to read and that we can read anywhere. ❤️📚

Chrissyreadit I wish I had a T-shirt with that image! I love it so much!!!! 2mo
Bookzombie @Chrissyreadit Me too! I was thinking it would look great on my wall. 2mo

After my last two #screamathon reads, I had to go for something a little lighter. I don‘t think this was a good as Wang‘s The Prince and the Dressmaker. Some of it needed fleshing out a bit more, but I loved Moon. In the end, this was sweet and uplifting.

I don‘t have kids, but is it a thing to take a group of 6 year olds camping?

Who does this?

Are 3 adult chaperones enough for twelve 6 year olds?

I‘m going to say no based on this book. This book is well written, but by the end I wanted to scrub my brain to remove the images.

I would like thank @batsy @Reggie and @sprainedbrain for bringing this one to my attention. 🙂 I liked it even with the whole brain scrubbing thing. #screamathon

sprainedbrain Excellent review! And you brought back all of the images for me without even giving details. 😬😂 2mo
DGRachel Such a great book! I love seeing other reviews. 😊 2mo
batsy Haha! I understand the need for some brain scrubbing after this one 😆 2mo

readordierachel Love this review 😆 This is definitely one of those books that sticks with you, for better or worse. 2mo
Bookzombie @sprainedbrain Thank you! @DGRachel Me too! 🙂 @batsy The brain scrubbing hasn‘t helped. 😀 @Reggie lol, Yes! I was describing it to my sister this weekend knowing she won‘t read this one. @readordierachel Thank you! It definitely does! 2mo
DGRachel I actually loaned my copy to a coworker to read, after somewhat warning her. I‘m dying for her to find time to read it. I just hope we can stay friends. 🤣🤣🤣 2mo
Bookzombie @DGRachel LOL I hope so too. 🙂 2mo

And the Trees Crept In | Dawn Kurtagich

Two sisters, Silla and Nori, run away to their mother‘s childhood home to stay with their aunt. They are warned to stay away from the woods. Is the manor cursed? Is Silla mad? What is real? I started this on audio and had to switch to print because the background whispering was so unsettling. Several reviews stated this was repetitive, but I think that is purposeful. It contributes to a feeling of confusion and madness. I really liked this one.

Bookzombie @Reggie I hope you like it! I also should have included that it‘s YA. 2mo

“I Was a Teenage Apocalypse”
Sadie Ritter thought having a baby at sixteen was hard enough, but things can get worse. She finds out that her baby, Clark, may be the Antichrist or King of Hell, which opens up a whole new dimension of worse. I really liked this one. It ends abruptly so I‘m definitely going to have get the next volume soon. #Booked2019 #comicorgraphicnovel #GraphicNovel2019 #screamathon #screamathonphotochallenge #graveyard

Reggie So are we rooting for anyone in this comic? The human race? The mother? The antichrist? 2mo
Bookzombie @Reggie I guess at this moment, I‘m rooting for the mother, her father, and her kick-ass sister Helen (who is a little psycho), plus the antichrist. It‘s hard not to root for a baby when assassins come at him. Lol. 2mo
Reggie Lol, awesome!! 2mo

Afraid | Jack Kilborn

A helicopter crashes in the woods outside of Safe Haven, Wisconsin and a terrifying red-ops team is unleashed upon the small town. The killings are graphic and gruesome. The body count is very high. This book is just as unputdownable as the first time I read it and it‘s also not for the faint hearted. #screamathon #screamathonchallenge #murder

Chrissyreadit This sounds good! 2mo
Bookzombie @Chrissyreadit It is, but very graphic. 🙂 2mo
Chrissyreadit @Bookzombie more than the stand? I don‘t mind some graphic, the torture in outlander is my limit, and torture of children- any comparison? 2mo
Bookzombie @Chrissyreadit I haven‘t actually read The Stand yet. I read Outlander, but it has been a while. It‘s not a spoiler to say there is some biting, burning, and cutting up. There is a kid and things get scary for him, but I don‘t recall him being tortured. 2mo

Reggie What happens at the end of the credits? The girl killer is pushing someone in a wheelchair right? Do you remember who? 2mo
Bookzombie @Reggie I remember that scene but was it at the end? I know at the end there is a groups of kids at another college talking about urban legends and then it reveals the girl is there saying she knows someone who knows someone it happened to. I don‘t have a copy of this movie. 🤦🏼‍♀️ 2mo

Bookzombie @Reggie I just rewatched UL and there is no wheelchair scene. I definitely remember that scene too so I Googled and that scene is at the end of the sequel, Urban Legends: Final Cut. Brenda (the killer from the first one) is pushing the killer from Final Cut. 🤓 2mo
Reggie Aaaaaghhhhhhh!!!!!! Lol thank you. I can go to sleep peacefully tonight. I had looked them up on YouTube but they only show the credits from being on network channels which cuts out for a commercial of what‘s coming out. Lol so frustrating. Thanks, Margie!!!! 2mo
Bookzombie @Reggie Welcome. Happy to help you sleep. Lol. 2mo
