Tin at some point when looking at Tol

I'm counting this because time loops, angels, and creepy doctors! I'm betting there is some illegal organ trafficking stuff going on which is terrifying

On episode 5. Hoping to get the rest watched this week so I can re watch Manner of Death. They are set in the same universe which is awesome because it means all the people that died in MoD stayed dead because they weren't main character enough

I wasn't sure what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't that! I really enjoyed the take on a zombie apocalypse, the history was interesting and the false utopia was well thought out. The characters I found less engaging, there wasn't much time given to developing them so I'm not sure if I would carry on with the series

I'm going to add 'buy books' to my October bucket list because it was sadly lacking ... And I bought books

Does anyone else have that thing where you decide to buy one book and your brain goes 'oh well what's 3 more?' and you buy 5 books

I didn't enjoy Griffin's POV as much as I was hoping. This might improve with later books but it felt very flat.

Still a great series and looking forward to finishing it. This one wasn't my favourite though

This is a small town paranormal book with a romance. The setting and characters felt authentic and I really enjoyed learning about the town and it's history.

The romance was well done, it didn't feel forced at all. The miscommunications were talked about and resolved which I love. Looking forward to the rest of the series

@FantasyChick you've been washed up on an island in the dead of night. Weirdly there seems to be a large abandoned building of some sort and ... Is that a message welcoming you to the island? That's strange.

At least 10 of your books survived with you so you can ignore the spookyness and read until you are rescued

I think 31 books might be too ambitious. Instead I'm going to aim to read 31 hours (or more hopefully) Since I'm recording hours read for #Scarathlon2022 anyway!

A very fitting end to a great series. I really enjoyed Adrian's story. It wasn't as action/adventure as the other books but I didn't mind that. I liked the way the siblings' stories came to an end.

HeyT I keep forgetting I have this in audio. I've done the whole series in audio and they were so good. But now I need to find a way to listen to this one! 2w

This is a great little book. There are extracts of poetry next to images of viking archaeological finds. There is a decent amount of notes and context to place things historically and understand what is going on

SpookyMazeOfBooks Will post my books in a few after I wake up . My mom got called into work last night and it was the shift my sister and I don't like her to work ,the 10 pm to 6 am , 1: because their only allowed to lock one door, 2: because their alone doing that shift , 3: they never fixed the button that sends out a message that the work need help, and 4 their cameras are really bad, so basically they don't have good security at all for their workers 2w

I love me some Midsomer Murders where an entire village is decimated by a killer using an antique cake slice and Barnaby only solves the crime when there is one person left alive in the quaint village of UpperWhoCares.

With the night‘s drawing in and the spooky season upon us I thought this would be a great time to do a readathon and bingo – #bodycountbingo It will run through October and is all about those high body counts!

PuddleJumper Any genres of books are acceptable as long as someone dies in them; thriller, cosy mystery, paranormal romance, it doesn‘t matter! 2w

Bit of a mixed bag with some more fantasy stuff coupled with more traditional monster/spooky stuff.

The Notes section is the best part of this book. It can't decide if it wants to be a retelling or an academic book.

It's boring. The writing is awful. The author manages to make stories about betrayal, war, gods, read like a shopping list.

It's interesting and I enjoyed the content of the retellings but not the writing.

⬇️

PuddleJumper This is a great resource book for those interested in textual transmission of Norse texts, from oral histories to text, the mythology and history side of things. It's just not necessarily a fun read 1mo
