2. You all know my answer lol 1922‘s Nosferatu
3. Ive never been scared by a book before BUT i know what should normally scare people and its literally anything by Edward Lee
4. Do paranormal shows count because im obsessed with them
5. Yes to gore
6. Is there a horror movie that you feel like everyone has seen but you?

All my CT and surrounding state Littens...RJ Julia has single tickets for Alice Hoffman! Im seriously considering it because Alice is one of my favorite writers! I couldnt do the whole weekend event (which sounded really fantastic) but now theres tickets for just the speaking event! Is anyone else planning on going?

Walt Disney Pictures' Return to Oz | Walt Disney Pictures
post image

Does anyone know if theres a graphic novel for this? This movie right here... It came out in 1985 and at 6 years old my parents thought this would be a good movie to take me to see. I was fine until the Wheelers came on the screen and i started screaming. They had to take me out of the theater. It took me until 17 or 18 to finally try and watch it again! Since then it has been one of my favorites. 17 was the start of my love of all things spooky!

RowReads1 It looks like MARVEL did a “Marvelous land of OZ”. https://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/10/08/graphic-books-best-sellers-return-... I had the coloring book from the movie from my childhood up until about a year ago. It scared me too. 1mo
bookish_wookish ooooo @RowReads1 Thank you!! Ill have to keep my eye out for it! 1mo

BOTM books are up for September! What is everybody thinking?!

Im not really excited about any of them 😕

GypsyKat I‘ve gone back and forth about joining BOTM, but I‘ve yet to commit to it. I feel like I would just end up skipping a lot of months. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
hjreviews @GypsyKat I was the same way for a while and joined earlier this year, and what I‘ve found is either I love 3 books or are meh about all of them. But if I‘m meh about all of them, I typically use my credit to go back and get one of the books I didn‘t get previously that I was really interested in. Still a better deal than buying them from the store 3mo
Alfoster I really liked This Tender Land! It‘s The Odyssey meets Huck Finn. 3mo

8little_paws I went for Wild Game and added on the Goldfinch so I could have a nice hardcover copy since all I have is a Kindle version. Wild Game I am not *super* excited about, but so many people have given it rave reviews perhaps I will like it more than I suspect. 3mo

So i finshed this last night and needed to “sleep on it” to see how i felt about it. This book was like this mornings weather, pretty underwhelming. I fell asleep repeatedly trying to read it so i brought it on vacay to finish it. The first “a-ha” moment came and went and i wasnt like “oh shit”. Actually tbe whole book was like that. Not my favorite by her!
