1. I like almost any kind of horror - especially stories of the unexplained (like Return to Dyatlov Pass) and underwater horror. It‘s important to me to feel the main character is in real danger. I really love my #screamsbymail book club where we‘re reading only horror written by women 🤡 2. Silent Venom starting Luke Perry 🐍 3. Not the scariest per se but the one I reread most often 👿 4. Mr Mercedes 🚘 5. Ichor is one of my favourite words

BookishTrish 6. What horror written by a woman do you recommend? 4d
teebe anything written by Ania Ahlborn 4d

veritysalter Shirley Jackson - The Birds Nest, a deep delve into the mind, what‘s real and what‘s not. 4d
Reggie I read this short story collection by Christa Carmen, and then there‘s Sarah Langan‘s The Missing, and Sarah Lotz‘s The Three. Those were all pretty good. 3d

Zoes_Human This makes me wonder if Lindy West is a social and outgoing person. I love being alone, and my spouse and I deeply value about one another that we can be alone together in the same space. The ability to be alone together is precious for folks like us. 4d

1. I love playing Elvis songs on my flute. I love Indiana Jones and once went to Petra just to have that moment I felt in the film. I taught English in Asia in my 20s. ❤️ 2. Tagged - also pretty much anything by Dave Eggers ❤️ 3. Yes at book signings and I have friends who write ❤️ 4. Too hot 🥵 #Litsylearn @Alora

Karisa Those are good ones! English teaching in Asia = lie? 🤷‍♀️ 5d

Seven books I‘d ideally like to read in the next seven weeks #booksIown

SamAnne Oh! That's a great list! You might want to throw in an uplifting or escapist book in there! Have read all except Spring (on my list). Loved Nickel Boys. Not sure I've fully recovered from Black Leopard Red Wolf--so violent and disturbing but beautiful writing. Flights I was mixed about but no doubt the writer is brilliant. Happy reading? (edited) 1w

My #bookmarkswap was waiting for me when I got home. It maybe been a tiny bit opened by my monster squad so I don‘t know who to thank for the lovely bookmarks. Middle monster claimed the Reading glasses bookmark (not pictured) for her own - she loves it so much. Much love to ??? (They think it started with a K) for bringing so much joy to the family of readers we‘re raising xo
