Getting a 4 week old baby void to pose for a photo is quite a daunting task. May I introduce Vlad. He was found in our yard a few days ago following a storm. He is already proving to be a wonderfully snuggly reading buddy. Happy Caturday! #litsylove

The Manor House: A Novel | Gilly Macmillan

Sunday morning book and brew. If you like your psychological thrillers full of twisty turns, then this is the book for you. A spooky old manor house set in the English countryside is always going to be an immediate read for me.

Such Sharp Teeth | Rachel Harrison
post image

Sunday mornings are for books, blankets, biscuits and Bruce Wayne (aka Sir Chonkasaurus). I‘m fairly picky about werewolf novels, but so far this one is pretty good.

*Edit: Gonna call this one Werewolf Lite. More like a romance with a touch of werewolf thrown in. And even though I don‘t care for romance, this was still a good story.

Simone St. James is an automatic buy for me. Her storytelling gets better and better with each book. And this one was absolutely AMAZING! Full of mystery and heavy on the creep factor! Grab this one as soon as you can and stay off the dark, deserted roads.

Jinkies, gang! It‘s time for some spooky mysteries! If you‘ve only ever read E. Nesbit‘s stories for children then you are missing out.

Books can come to our rescue when we least expect it. Stuck in a waiting room for longer than expected? Pull out a book! Too much people-ing? Read a book & escape. Today a book came to my rescue at the DMV. We got married at the end of February (Leap Day)& I had yet to change my name on my license. Thought I had everything I needed until the clerk asked for 2 pieces of mail with my name & address on them. I had nothing. Then I remembered …

FlowerFairy the ThriftBooks order that arrived today and I had pulled from the mailbox before heading to the DMV. Rushed out to the car, grabbed the package and ran back in. Sometimes book shopping saves the day! 🤣 (edited) 3mo

I really enjoy Rachel Harrison but this collection of short stories is only about a three and a half star rating.

monkeygirlsmama I was never a big fan of short stories, yet I've been on an unintentional short story kick lately. And I find they're usually very hit or miss. 4mo
FlowerFairy @monkeygirlsmama These four stories were very hit or miss. There was only one I fully enjoyed. The others were very much meh. 4mo
vivastory I was going to check this one out but based on your review I think I will pass. I have read only one Harrison book & didn't care for it, however I have been meaning to give her another shot 4mo

Doing a bit of audiobook knitting today. Mike Carey is also M.R. Carey, the author of The Girl With All The Gifts. He also worked on some of the Hellblazer (John Constantine) comics.

I was 6 years old when this book was released & remember our teacher reading it to us. I was immediately in love with both the story and the artwork. I had my own paperback copy that I read repeatedly & read the same copy to my children decades later. I‘m pretty sure this book (& a steady diet of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone & The Addams Family) helped spawn my love of all things spooky. Was so happy to find this as a hardback. 🖤

Suburban Hell | Maureen Kilmer
post image
Pickpick

Suburban Hell by Maureen Kilmer was not at all what I was expecting and in the very best way. I thought this was going to be a fluffy brain candy read that would quickly be forgotten. Instead, I found a page turning, unputdonwnable, in one sitting read. The characters were well rounded,believable and relatable and the story creepy and intriguing. Currently tied for first place in my favorite reads so far this year.

Happy Sunday! If you haven‘t read read this yet, get on it pronto! Keep It In The Family started out as a slow burn but suddenly John Marrs blindsides you with bombshell after bombshell. Just when you think you have everything figured out and you know where this story is taking you, Marrs grabs the wheel and takes you down a road you didn‘t even know was there. This was my first John Marrs book but will certainly not be my last.

The Maidens: A Novel | Alex Michaelides

Mehso-so

Audiobook I‘ve settled on a solid “meh” for this one. The story was interesting but the characters weren‘t nearly as well rounded or engaging as The Silent Patient. It was hard to believe it would be so easy to insinuate oneself into a murder investigation the way Mariana did. Was planning to give this 3💀but the “reveal” caught me off guard and made for a good ending. So while not quite 4💀, I will give it 3 💀and a mandible.

AmyG I just read this too and gave it a 3. Much of it sounded “out there” but yet it kept my interest. 2y

This is a quick & unsettling read that will send shivers up your spine. It‘s set as a blog written by a mental health professional named Parker H. He recounts his time working in a hospital where a patient called Joe has been confined since he was a child. Much mystery & death surrounds Joe. Joe is assigned to the care of Parker who begins to unravel Joe‘s past & his stay at the facility. This is a quick read that delivers a powerful punch.
