⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 3/5 @Clwojick @StayCurious #MerryReaders #ImpulseRead just randomly picked this up from Audible since it was free and had fun with it. Not too many twists that you couldn‘t see coming, but I found myself rooting for Angel the whole time. I also enjoyed the southern accented audio performance quiet a bit.

This is one of my favorite Seattle libraries. It‘s two doors down from my office (yay) and is such a cute little building and it even has a small park next door where I can catch a little sun on the rare occasion it‘s out, like earlier today!

@Clwojick @StayCurious #MerryReaders #WinterGames Enjoyed this quite a bit ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5. A dark blood-magic universe driven by power greed and death all wrapped up in an Ivy League college setting. Wished some of the action was spread out a little more (last third was the most interesting). This was a #TBRRead from October when I jealously saw everyone reading it! Yay Winter Games points!

Not Even Bones | Rebecca Schaeffer
post image
Pickpick

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 💫 I‘d give this one a 3.5/5 I think. Really fun concept and universe! It felt a little slow in the middle perhaps, and I really wanted to see the main character Nita move to a new physical environment for some of the story (the world felt a little small) but at the end the plot started to pick up a bunch and ended with a cliffhanger that left me curious. Dark, complicated, bloody YA (hangover for Halloween reads!)

Totally forgot to post about finishing this one! I enjoyed it, but not really my normal reading choice (too much creepy). Not on team theme for the #Scarathlon #TeamStoker @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick BUT this does complete my #ScaryScavengerHunt, with “Bone in the title” and “that scares me”! 13/13 woot!

Really enjoyed this book! There is a ton about the universe that I still want to know (and wish was explained a little more) but really enjoyed the ride, thanks primarily to Gideon‘s sense of humor. Definitely ramped up the horror in the last third which creeped me out :P Wrapped it up on the plane, great on theme read for the #Scarathlon #TeamStoker @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick Also! Has a “number in the title” for #ScaryScavengerHunt

“The space beyond that door is profoundly haunted in ways I cannot say, and by means you won‘t understand and you may die by violence, or you may simply lose your soul.” Said by a young woman who literally commands skeletons and was just napping inside a bone. This book is so RAD. Despite the quote it‘s also quite funny so far too! #Scarathlon #TeamStoker @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick

Clwojick This is a fun little series. Have you seen the show? 5mo
Jesstifies @Clwojick Yes! Watched the whole show, I really liked it actually. A little silly, but my favorite kind of silly. I‘m a huge Major fan. Also love that the show is set in Seattle (where I‘m at). I haven‘t read the comics though, seems like there will be notable differences from the show, which will fun. Worried it might be boring if it was 1:1. (edited) 5mo
Scochrane26 The show is basically only borrowing the name from the comics. Both are good though. 5mo

It is with distinct fear and #horror that I recall when this movie came out in 92 (based on the tagged book of stories). Every kid I knew was talking about it and I was super scared to even discuss it, let alone watch it. Still have never seen it (or read it), but it manages to still creep me out just thinking about it.

SumisBooks 🧟‍♀️ one of my favorites! I love the score by Philip Glass. although I don't really care for The Exorcist it is the only score that I really like that tops the Philip Glass score for The Candyman. 5mo
Jesstifies @TheReadingMermaid ! Did you see it right when it came out?! The score would be all I‘d get from it since I‘d have my eyes closed the whole time 😁 5mo
SumisBooks I saw this movie when I was old enough to watch horror movies. But yes it's definitely quite creepy. Although the Candyman himself never really creeped me out. It was more of the building in the surroundings and the fact that it took place in an urban city. Fun fact, this was one of the first horror movies to actually take place in an urban city and it changed the horror genre forever. Clive Barker is a genius! 5mo
