The Dead Romantics by Ashley Poston

The Baby-sitter | R. L. Stine
post image

Well it's that time of year again... when I open up my little cupboard of (mostly) childhood books, including my surviving Fear Streets. I try to pick one to re-read every October. Last year I started The Baby-Sitter and then got hit with a terrible cold that day and forgot all about it. So I think I'll do that one!

5feet.of.fury Nice! (& Valley of the Dolls is one of my all time favorites) 21h
ShyBookOwl @5feet.of.fury I loved it when I first picked it up, but that was well over a decade ago now and I often wonder if it would still resonate. I should definitely revisit it! 20h
tokorowilliamwallace Valley of the Dolls would suit Libra season, too! 13h

Binged 4 hrs of this today while organizing the house. After watching Hocus Pocus 2 last night, I was in the mood for more Contemporary Salem YA content 🐈‍⬛ Love that the author has actual Salem trial ties too!

Loving my audiowalks these days! Gorgeous. Listening to tagged book. Not as ghostly as I thought it'd be but I keep getting caught up in the story anyways. The ghost thing is still being dangled occasionally so we'll see!

LiteraryinLawrence I remember reading and liking this! 6d
ShyBookOwl @LiteraryinLawrence It was good! But it wasn't what I thought it would be. Not spooky at all lol 5d

Even now I still dream about Brodie‘s Watch, and the nightmare is always the same.

#FirstLineFridays I love how much this opening line reminds me of Rebecca's opening line (Last night I dreamt of Manderly again.) Great gothic vibes so far

I just finished Daisy Darker last night and immediately felt the familiar and unpleasant tug of a book hangover forming. Sure enough, this morning I can't for the life of me pick my next book. I just want to stay with the Darker family. But alas, it's time to move on. 😪

Great book btw! Certainly in my top 10 Spooktober recs!

MyNamesParadise Oh good to know! I‘m waiting for it to come in at the library. I‘m really eager to read it!! 2w
ShyBookOwl @MyNamesParadise Hopefully u get it around Halloween since that's when the story is set! 2w

For a long while, Joan has managed to balance on the balls of her bare feet, knees bent, skirt skimming the dirt.

I'm a day late for #Firstlinefridays but after devouring the first half of this book yesterday, I wanted to share it anyways lol Happy Saturday!

ShyBookOwl @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I found a mother/son book! Content warning, they are trapped at the zoo during a mass shooting. It's tough in that respect, but the focus is really on how the 4-yr old sees and navigates the world and how the mother is trying to navigate this situation without disrupting his worldview too much. It's beautiful. 3w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Oooh! Definitely stacking this! Thank you for remembering me! ❤️ 3w

Love You Forever | Robert N Munsch
post image

Turning to my littens for some book recs today! Recently found out I'm having a baby boy and realized I don't know many mother/son stories... Is it just me, or does the father/son relationship take precedence in our media?? 🤔 Any suggestions out there for good mother/son books? Especially if the son is middle grade/teen! I know gender means very little, but I still feel this is a void in my reading life now. HELP!

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I‘ll be lurking for answers to this as I also need recommendations! 😅 My sister-in-law gifted me two books from the “Stinky Face” series, and they‘re both focused on a mother/son relationship. I love the illustration style too! 3w
ShyBookOwl @wanderinglynn Omg this sounds amazing!! Thank you 3w

ShyBookOwl @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Haha well, congrats (?) and good luck! Let me know if you come across any other good ones and I'll do the same! I'll definitely check out Stinky Face 3w
wanderinglynn I‘d also say the Harry Potter series (although not physically present, his parents have a lot of influence on Harry) & the Percy Jackson series. 3w
ShyBookOwl @wanderinglynn Ah ha! I was wondering if Percy Jackson would be a good one! Thx! I only read the first few HPs about 5 yrs ago. Maybe I'll return to them if they're still on my kindle lol 3w
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Congrats to you too! 🥰 3w
PathfinderNicole Board book wise, Sandra Boynton‘s Pookie series is about a little boy pig and his mom makes appearances! My son loved those when he was small! But I feel your pain, it does seem like there‘s very little for mother/son relationships! 3w

Reading this in bed with a storm outside. It's early enough that it's still completely dark out too, so the mood is just right. This is such a good whodunnit mystery, atmospheric, with so many great one-liners. For anyone looking for a fun Halloween read, consider this one!

mamareading My library still hasn‘t ordered this one, I think I‘m going to have to buy it! 3w

ChaoticMissAdventures I read this! It was a total departure from her last one the Echo Wife. It was a bit dark and spooky. But it made me wonder how desensitized I am because I wasn't shaking in my boots or anything 😂 2mo
ShyBookOwl @ChaoticMissAdventures lol I found it creepy, not scary, which I distinguish by a similar measure: no heart pounding. But I found it so weird and, tbh, I was laughing at the end because I was so taken aback by the weirdness of the haunting. I bailed on the Echo Wife and wasn't overly impressed with When We Were Magic. I think Magic for Liars is the only Gailey I've loved 2mo

My #LetterI rec is for all the Buffy fans out there... especially Willow, Oz, and Spike fans, as they're the only original scoobies in the book. My theory is it's because Disney is playing the long game, starting with books they hope to adapt for a TV reboot with these original cast members because, let's be honest, SMG isn't going back lol The book even creates a reason to age up Spike 🧐

My #LetterG rec is Girly Drinks. An excellent non-fiction that explores women's role in the history of alcohol, from the development, to gendered drinking social norms, and marketing. Very interesting and written in the author's distinct voice (which u may know from the podcast Reading Glasses): informative, thoughtful, and humorous.
