I Am Not a Number | Jenny Kay Dupuis, Kathy Kacer
post image
Pickpick

I read 18 children‘s books in November and these 10 were all 5 stars.
The tagged book is excellent. Irene, an 8 year-old, is taken from her First Nation family to live in a Canadian residential school. The story is based on Irene Couchie‘s, Dupuis‘ grandmother, experience, which was heartbreaking, horrific and true.

This is an Indigenous romance recommended by Michelle of ThorWantsAnotherLetter on YouTube.
This story, set at an urban Indian center, is a little bit of hate to love romance. Henry, a little afloat in life, is basically given Rayanne‘s project by his well-meaning uncle. Rayanne is ticked off (as she should be!) but sucks it up for the benefit of the center. It took a bit for the romance to kick in as the center and it‘s struggles are an ⬇️

Bookzombie important piece of the story. Rayanne and Henry definitely have chemistry, but most of the action between them is fade to black. I enjoyed this one and I plan to continue with the series. Particularly because I love the other characters in the book and also because the center‘s woes are not completely resolved in this one.

November Review

Bookzombie If you do pick this one up or maybe even if you don‘t, there is a great discussion about this book on YouTube with BookishBethany, ThorWantsAnotherLetter, and NativeLadyBookWarrior. https://youtu.be/O9SXHi5TAlU (edited) 2d

It seems odd to say I enjoyed this novel, which is set in North Carolina and told from several perspectives, as it‘s full of pain and heartache, but I did. Ray is the father of an addict, who is pushed to take action. Denny, another addict, has to make a choice. An undercover DEA agent and his handler are trying to make an interstate drug case. This novel is a slow burn until all three story lines collide. #Booked2021 #appalachiannoir

Red Hands | Christopher Golden
post image
Pickpick

I read all three books currently available in the Ben Walker series in the last few months and I hope there will be more. Walker is the weird science guy they (some government entity, whispers DARPA) send in when things are, well, weird. He is a little bit John McClane (sorry I just rewatched Die Hard 🎄). The first two books are set in different archaeological digs. Book 3 is set in small town America and a bio weapon is released. There is a ⬇️

Bookzombie supernatural element to each book.
Note:
I read Red Hands before the horrible Waukesha parade crash, but the book begins with a car plowing into a parade This is not really a spoiler as it‘s in the blurb, but I wanted to warn just in case.

Broken Horses: A Memoir | Brandi Carlile
post image
Pickpick

I heard “The Story” when it came out in 2007, but I didn‘t really become aware of Brandi Carlile until I saw her perform “The Joke” on the 2019 Grammys. Since then her music has been played regularly at our house. I really enjoyed listening to Brandi‘s story so far and the stories behind many of her songs. As others have stated, audio is the best way to go as she performs the songs acoustically at the end of each chapter. Also, please see ⬇️

This is my first CRH read, but I‘m jumping on the Litsy bandwagon. Serial killer, The Nothing Man, leaves a child alive after killing her family. As an adult, the survivor writes a true-crime book about what happened and is determined to find out who he is. I listened to this but it was definitely a page-turner.

Last week‘s forecast was pretty accurate. I didn‘t read much and only completed The Nothing Man (Pick). I watched a lot of YouTube instead.

Red Hands is still overdue due to max renewals. I feel guilty even though we are fine-free, but at least no one is waiting on it. I seem to have hit a bit of a reading stride again so maybe I will finish it and a few more this week. 💃🏼

Four teens are at a beach house for a few days. There is a local boy behaving oddly. After each night there is evidence that the sea is getting closer to the house and there are foot prints where they shouldn‘t be. This was enjoyable, but not as scary for me as the cover might indicate. Everything says this is 99 pages but it felt a lot shorter than that. #Screamathon

I hate to bail on books, but I was bored and uninterested in this one. I liked the main character, Esther, who loves Halloween and is not ready to give up trick-or-treating, but I found the story dull overall. Also, some of the adults were a bit odd. #Screamathon

I totally picked this up based on the cover and title. A Hollywood crew has come to the island for the summer to film a movie about a shark. 🦈 There is a youth film contest as well. Gayle and her new friends, Elijah and Maddie, set out to uncover the island‘s own secret shark story and win the prize money. I enjoyed this one. It was a little dark and the ending was a little rushed.

You know how you pick up some books and they turn out to be exactly what you want right then but you didn‘t know? That‘s what Kill Creek was for me. I was creeped out and absorbed. I stayed up late reading one night and had to watch a YouTube video before I went to sleep. I stopped reading it before bed, lol. I felt invested in the characters and what would become of them. I thought it was perfect for #Screamathon and really enjoyed it.

It‘s 1983 and Camp Sweetwater is reopening after mysteriously shutting down decades ago. Corryn and Tez realize there are strange things happening at the camp. They quickly ban together to figure out what‘s going on. This was fun and I may pick up the next one.

A number of Henry‘s books have been on my TBR for a long time, but I bumped this one up after @Reggie posted a great review a few months ago.
Mattie has only known the mountain and William for the last 12 years. The looming threat of an unknown creature and three hikers in search of it will bring out the truth and change everything. This was a really gripping book and if I could I have I would have read it in one day. #Screamathon

Bookzombie @Reggie I know you said you wanted the creature to kill William, but I found how he dies so satisfying. 1mo
Reggie This is a really great review, Margie. Yeah, I just wanted to run him over. And as much abuse as Henry describes it never feels repetitive which made it feel that much worse. 1mo

According to GR, it‘s been 5 years since I read The Monstrumologist, the first book in this series and I regret that. I listened to most of this on audio and highly recommend it. In book 2, Pellinor Warthorpe and his assistant, Will Henry, are after the Outiko or Wendigo. This is a YA series, but it is dark and gory and this one had some heartbreak. Warthorpe and Will both get quite a bit of character development in this one. 💗 #Screamathon

Bookzombie These books are set in the late 1800s and Yancey makes you feel like you are there. For example, there is a section where he goes into detail about the filth in the streets of New York City. He talks about “the hour of filth” when chamber pots across the city are emptied directly onto the streets and the amount of waste the horses produced every day. It makes you wonder how humans actually survived. It‘s disgusting, but also fascinating. (edited) 1mo

I have seen mixed reviews for this book, but it hit the creepy mark for me. I highly recommend the audio if you pick it up.
In 1959, all of the residents of Silvertjarn, except a dead body hanging on a pole and an infant, found alive, disappear. Now, Alice and four other documentary crew members return to the old mining village to find out what happened. The story unfolds flipping back and forth between 1959 and now.

Reggie Is it found footage? Is there shaky cam? Lol have you watched Hellhouse. There‘s a trilogy but they all have their creepy moments. It‘s found footage of these people putting a haunted house up in a haunted hotel. Good stuff. 2mo

Dracula | Bram Stoker

I picked the 1931 version of Dracula with Bela Lugosi for my #scarepair for week 1‘s #Screamthon challenge, because I hadn‘t seen it. It‘s not much of a scare, lol. It‘s only 75 minutes long so a lot of the book was left out and also a couple of main characters. Harker doesn‘t go to Transylvania, Renfield does. Dr. Seward is Mina‘s father in the movie. There are several other changes.

Bookzombie Also, there is a shot of a possum crawling into a coffin. I think they were used to look like large rats. There is another shot with armadillos. I looked it up and both of those animals appear to live only in North and South America and not in Transylvania. 2mo

I read and listened to the novel. I enjoyed it overall. At times it dragged a bit and I think that had more to do with already being so familiar with the story.

Not every tree on the tree farm wants to be a festive tree or even likes people (so relatable). I loved this grumpy tree. This story is sweet and heartwarming, and the illustrations are adorable.

Here is my #BookReport for last week.

Someone Like Me was an okay children‘s book.
TLD took some time, but was so worth it.
Prince & Knight and I Am Jazz are both banned/challenged children‘s books. #bannedbooksweek
Schomburg is a children‘s book about an important figure I didn‘t know.
The Venue was bloody.
