I have no idea how old these #LitsyLove letters are. My boyfriend cleaned out the truck and found them lurking deep in the depths. So @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Tattooedteacher @Bookwormjillk are going to have some probably out dated letters coming their way 😂 I'm going to guess I wrote these in September or maybe October. Sorry everyone 😅

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Haha! No worries 😉 2w

Thank you so much @TheAromaofBooks! I love everything. I've been wanting to read this books for ages. And I agree with you. I also like the way the book is bound.

@MaleficentBookDragon Thank you for hosting #Jolabokaflod

monalyisha Book looks darkly ADORABLE. Looking forward to your review! Happy Holidays! 🧛🏻‍♀️🎄 1mo
TheAromaofBooks For some reason I didn't get this tag, so I came to check and see if you got it!! 😂 So glad you like the pick - not super Christmasy, but a fun little read with just the cutest illustrations! Merry Christmas!!! 1mo
Patchshank @TheAromaofBooks I wonder why you didn't get the tag. That's weird. I love Sarah Anderson's drawings. They're always adorable. Thank you again. Merry Christmas! ❤️ 1mo

Twainy I‘m not sure what that is but yes. 1mo
Patchshank @Twainy I've never participated in a buddy read before, but from what I can gather its like a small bookclub. We read the book together and discuss it. Like maybe each week we read like 5 chapters or something then at the end of the week we talk about it. 1mo

Not as good as the first one. This is more like Santa Claus as a super hero that is always saving the world. It didn't seem like it was done in a way that tied into the myth of Santa.

A snow storm causes several people to be stranded at a diner in Indiana on Christmas. Then aliens do things.

Kind of had some Stranger Things vibes. It's a super short read. The writing isn't great and everything felt a little rushed. Still pretty good though.

I bought a new candle today and then dropped it. The glass is only a little broken at the top. It's fine. Probably. #FestivePhotoChallenge. By candlelight.
@StayCurious #GameSleighers

booksellerofyourdiscontent Your picture took me right back to my candle shop days! We would do our best to rescue and reuse those poor broken candles. As long as you watch the sharp edges you should be good! You could also break off the glass and cut the candle up for a tart warmer if you have one. 2mo
Patchshank I don't have one unfortunately :( but thank you for the idea. The only thing I'm worried about is the integrity of the glass. I'm hoping it doesn't break later on because of all the heating and cooling. 2mo

I was looking at my TBR mountain and came up with the plan to read books based on topics. Every month I'd pick a topic and all the books I read that month will fall under that topic.

Then I decided to drag you all into my chaos and call it the #ToDoList. I've come up with some themes for each month in hopes it will help others chip away at their TBR mountain. I'll post more information later this month if anyone is interested.
👇 StoryGraph link

Karisa Oooh, great idea! I love how open the categories are 💗 2mo
Patchshank I created a StoryGraph Challenge if anyone is interested. It offers some more details. 2mo
Pageturner1 sounds fun. definitely will help my tbr and my goals on reading more. 2mo

My #BookSpin. Very quick read. There are 7 short stories which are all super dark. It was a fun read though. The stories were all pretty good. Trigger warning for violence and suicide.

Ghost stories used to be a Christmas Eve tradition. That really needs to make a comeback. Who's with me? 🎄👻

But it's a readathon for horror, thriller, murder mystery and so on. Set your own goals even if that goal is to not have a goal. Tag me in the review if you feel like it.

My #NYWD list from @Bookzombie. Seems like it's a great list. The Thursday Murder Club and Tender is the Flesh have been on my radar for awhile. I bought Broken a month or so ago, but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. Same with the Fifth Season. My bookclub might be reading that sometime next year though, so I'm going to save it.

Thanks again @monalyisha for organizing all of this.

vivastory What a fun list! I've read, & loved, # 3, 5, 6 & 10. I checked out the Osman from the library today. 2mo
Bookzombie I hope you enjoy them! If you like audio, I recommend Broken and Thursday on audio. 🙂 2mo
Patchshank @Bookzombie I loved listening to Lawson's other books on audio. I checked libby to see if they had it and the wait-list is long. I was on it, but the ebook went on sale so I bought it. I'll probably just read this one even though it just won't be the same. 😅 2mo
Bookzombie @Patchshank I‘m sure it will still be good in print! I use Libby for audiobooks too. The wait-list can be so long sometimes. 2mo

It was definitely a very dark book with a lot of really messed up parts. It was a good story with interesting twists and turns. I just didn't like how much the book jumped around and parts of it kind of dragged on.

I really liked it. This was my first book by Junji Ito. Definitely going to check out more of his stuff. So much weirdness and creepiness.

I read Frankenstein in college, so I vaguely remember it. From what I can remember Ito's version is similar to the novel, but there are a handful of small differences.

I got this book from Library Thing's Early Reviewers. I posted a review on the book's page.
https://www.librarything.com/work/26864556
I don't think the book I have tagged is the correct book. Most of the stories were enjoyable. I have a few favorites. None were all that scary, so if you like ghost stories without getting spooked you might like these.
