Catching up on life and excited to read everyone‘s cards/ a surprise #litsypenpal2019...(sorry it‘s taken so long). @LapReader @mngraham @phatsallylee @BookNAround @Kdgordon88

Sg1224 @LapReader your stationary choice has piqued my interest...is there a story behind your selection?! 2w
LapReader I am a bit of a hippy and just use scrap paper. 2w
Sg1224 @LapReader 😂. I thought it was a puzzle and spent a little time trying to solve it...apparently it is unsolvable. Haha 2w

Cue the pounding heartbeat, sweaty palms, and overwhelming uneasy-sympathetic vibes for poor Nora. I tend to think nefarious plans involving memory loss with no potential resolution are quite scary. With friends like these, I‘d bail/avoid my past all together as well. Classic who done it...with a side of cattiness, Ouija board, and booze.

Part two- you just saw my happy dance...now stand back & witness my elated hyperventilating dance. You hit the nail in the head...where did you find the graphic novel and perfect book bag? Omg! I can NOT wait to add these to my October reading list! ❤️your theme of creepy houses in the woods! Consider yourself an A+ gifter! Themes to gifts are my jam! Haha You definitely made October amazingly scary! Thank you so much!

lele1432 Awwww that is so sweet!! ??? Amazon again for the graphic novel lol. The tote was tricky...I saw the design and knew I wanted to get it for you, but various Etsy shop timelines made me nervous. So I found it at Abrams books online! I'm so glad you liked the theme lol! I had so much fun!! As soon as hubby gets home it's "me time" and I'm opening mine! ?? 1mo

I‘ve been waiting to post until after our book club meeting! The story quickly informs the reader what to expect but at some point, similar to the neighborhood boys, you have to be ok with knowing there‘s no answers to the questions. Otherwise, you too will spend your entire life trying to put the clues together only to come up to another dead end...

Typhoid Mary | Anthony Bourdain
post image

Wow, the entire time I could hear Anthony Bourdain‘s voice narrating & providing contextual anchors. Mary Mallon was just trying to live her best life. Unfortunately she was carrying a very contagious disease & at the time it became somewhat of a witch hunt. I sympathize with the fact that for much of the time, she didn‘t have any inclination that she was the source. Don‘t read if you‘re already freaked out by 🦠 ‘s.

While traveling I found this signed edition with the inscription: Sarah Aurelia Vance. #242 of 750 copies. It‘s an interesting short story about a young boy with a “wild thing trapped in his eye”....I guess I have an unofficial summer theme: evil that will betide.😳

I am hooked! This short story was the perfect gateway into the realm H.P Lovecraft crafts in such a well-rounded sense. The way he describes putrid scents left me with the perfect understanding. This story quickly unfolds and wraps its tentacles around you until it has sucked you dry. 😬 #bookclub June read!
