This one was absolutely fun to read. It's spooky, but not too spooky and it's full of good themes like love, family, friendship, and loyalty. I also loved all the humor. Prosper and Alastor have great dialogue and it's mega Halloween vibes. Highly recommend to young readers and those who love Middle Grade!

Adam Silvera's event last night was so much fun. So much positive energy and great comments based on questions by Sabaa Tahir. Great night, great author, great books. (I couldn't make my face smile normally from the laughing so all the pictures ended up like this, which I honestly love better than anything else)

Unraveling Oliver | Liz Nugent
post image
Pickpick

I thought this was going to be a scary creepy thriller, but was (relieved) to find it wasn't. You know right out the gate that Oliver has beaten his wife into a coma and we spend the following chapters alternating between people who knew Oliver as they share their experiences with him over the years until the final reveal of why he beat his wife. I was a little meh about the reveal, but I did like the journey and the voices.

DivineDiana Love your photo! 2y

Mehso-so

I had a hard time deciding between "pick" and "so-so" for this one because on one hand it gave me major Raven Cycle vibes (creepy and magical) and the writing was beautiful and I was interested. On the other hand it didn't totally deliver for me. It's one of those weird books you like and don't totally like at the same time. Although I do say it's the perfect Fall or Halloween read for sure.

Suet624 I love the cover. 2y

I was sent the Boxwalla "Forgotten Women" series subscription box for review and I have to say it was a lovely experience. It included Katherine Mansfield's Garden Party as well as a box of shortbread by Unna Bakery. The cookies were high quality and delicious and the card with facts about Mansfield included some really interesting info. Love this sub box series they are doing and thought the experience was stellar.

Mehso-so

I really enjoyed (and was creeped out) by the first half of this book, but the second half just felt too long and the plot felt more crowded than complex and there were things thrown in that just felt extra to me. Over all I think if you're into cult culture, secret societies, and need a summer thriller, this might be your thing.

Double checking my locks every night and never answering the door unless I am expecting someone's. Haha.
