Pickpick

Like a lot of horror, it starts off strong and then fizzles a bit at the end. Build up is great, took me a minute to get into the writing style but I love how a mundane scene is being described and then the last sentence or last few words reveals it isn‘t at all ordinary. It makes for an eerie first half. Solid three star read. If you like reading ghost stories, I do recommend it. #ReadSpooky2023

I didn‘t read much last year but my favorite thing was #ReadSpooky2022 and having a list to fall back on. So I‘m doing it again, this time with prompts. #ReadSpooky2023

It‘s also on Storygraph as a challenge if anyone wants to join:
https://app.thestorygraph.com/reading_challenges/b1484a5e-1bdf-4866-aed6-34c0df5...

Clwojick Yes! I‘m in! I always thought I didn‘t like horror, but I read some great horrors last year, so this is a perfect way to broaden my horror horizons! 3mo
Bookzombie I don‘t really need another challenge but I love this as I always love horror. Thanks! Adding it to my list. 💗 3mo

Setting Goals | John Renesch

I can‘t believe it‘s the end of the year already, ugh. I don‘t think my goals change much each year but in 2023, I definitely need to double down on finishing the 20+ books I have half-read. And since I‘ve been kinda MIA and haven‘t logged/reviewed much in 2022, I need to spend time updating StoryGraph, Litsy, etc. with what books I‘ve read. #readinggoals

Back for another year! 👻This one will be short and sweet (one book, one goodie, one food/drink item)

#CreepyChristmas is a book swap for anyone who wants to celebrate all things spooky beyond October 31. It‘s inspired by stories like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Krampus, and Black Christmas that blend the dark and scary with the delight of Christmas. All participants send and receive horror-themed books and goodies. Open internationally.

Apparently I haven‘t posted here in 6 months… what?! Where has the time gone? This year is kicking my butt. I have a stack of books I need to actually log and review and an even larger stack I need to finish reading but I don‘t feel like doing that so here‘s a procrastination project I did: alphabetical section markers for my bookshelf.

BookNAround Love those! You may be procrastinating but at least you got something pretty cool out of it. 7mo

Mehso-so

A kind of haunted house story with a twist. Good enough that I kept reading it because I wanted to know what happens, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a haunted house story but it‘s by no means a masterpiece. You never quite forget that you‘re reading a YA novel. #ReadSpooky2022

As mentioned, I‘m setting a casual horror challenge for myself but I figured if anyone wanted to join yet another challenge for 2022:

Have a spooky year by reading at least one horror book per month. Follow the provided list or make your own! Nothing is mandatory, participate whenever and however you‘d like. If you want to read more per month or only join for one month, go for it. #ReadSpooky2022

Lol it‘s 11pm and NOW I‘m working on items for the new year. I don‘t usually do life resolutions but I do have reading goals:

⭐️ Instead of aiming for a set # of books, I just want to read more. Even if it‘s just a chapter a day.
⭐️ Finish most of the 27+ books on my “unfinished” list.
⭐️ Read from my TBR list, focusing on books I own.
⭐️ This is more an unofficial goal but I want to finish reading all of Ania Ahlborn‘s books.

inthegreensandblues I like the goal of even just a little bit every day. 😊 Happy new year! 1y

Posting this because I know many Littens are from the US:

This weekend, one of my cousins was abducted by her mother, from a parking lot outside Montreal. Her mother is from New Mexico and drove up to Canada to take her. They had been found at the Border at Highgate Springs (VT) and the Amber Alert was cancelled. Except the Border Patrol allowed her to cross into Vermont and now no one knows where they are.

Details from the Amber Alert ⤵️

teebe On November 20, 2021, at approximately 2:30pm, Dasia Rose Diabo DOB 2013/11/23
Abducted by her mother at Tim Horton‘s on Saint Jean Baptiste in Chateauguay.

Child is approximately 4 foot tall, brown hair, waist length. Wearing a pink jacket, jeans, purple hat and gloves, and work boots.
1y
teebe Mother: Denise Honoria DOB 1989/11/23 5‘2” 125lbs, fair complexion, wearing an olive green jacket and is of Latino decent.

Driving a beige 2000 Toyota Tacoma, New Mexico Licence plate RDG893.

They will also have a brown and white beagle dog with them.

Call (450)632-6505, if you have seen, or have any information, that could assist investigators.

teebe ANYONE WHO WANTS TO SHARE — I recommend sharing the FB post from the Kahnawake Peacekeepers (linked above) as that had the Amber Alert details people should be aware of. They were last seen crossing into Vermont at Highgate Springs. They may be heading back to New Mexico but could be anywhere in the US. 1y

I have never celebrated #CanadaDay (or the #FourthofJuly) and I don‘t know any Indigenous person who has. It has always been a day of mourning for us.

There are tons of resource lists being shared now more than ever. Search them out. I will add that it‘s not enough to just read Indigenous authors. #DecolonizeYourShelves but also decolonize the way you read, analyze and review books. Racism is still a huge problem within bookish communities.

There are less eBook sales with Kobo vs Kindle and they don‘t always line up, which can be frustrating when you know a great book is on sale for Kindle, but Kobo still has a lot of great sales in my opinion. I‘m not sure if it‘s still an issue, but Kindle never used to work with the eBook formats from Canadian libraries, but Kobo does. So if you‘re a library user, definitely consider that! 2y
Ast_Arslan I had Kobo long time ago but it was a bad experience, now I have Kindle and I just love it. It's easy and plus amazon has a lot of daily and monthly offers for ebook 🤩 2y

CBee Never had a Kobo but I adore my Kindle! I have a Paperwhite. 2y
teebe @candority thanks, this helps! I found out from a review that Kobo does price matching for ebooks so it is possible to get Kindle prices with some extra steps. (edited) 2y
candority @teebe You‘re welcome! That‘s good to know. I may need to look into that! 2y
teebe @Ast_Arslan yeah I‘ve seen a lot of reviews that say kobo is awful and a lot that say it‘s the best. I‘m trying to figure out why there‘s such a divide there lol 2y
teebe @CBee @TrishB thanks for your input! Paperwhite is definitely the recommendation I get most often and I‘m considering it 2y
Ast_Arslan @teebe I also have friends that love kobo but one day my device decided to cancel all my books. I switched it off and on again, but nothing worked. 2y
Ast_Arslan I tried to switch it off again but it did not works. Afyer 7 years is still framed on the homepage but it not works at all. Definitely a terrible experience o.o 2y

Hello from the other side of the move! 👋🏼 I‘m still not completely settled yet. My new office/studio/library is my basement so I‘m working on fixing some things up. This corner is basically all of my books, they will live here until I replace my bookshelves.

mommyincolortv I'm getting ready to move myself and I'm already lamenting the process. I'm packing up myself, 2 kids and my mom. My mom broke her shoulder 2 months ago so she can't help pack too much or move anything so I'll be relying on my spoiled 13yo to pitch in. Thank goodness we don't have any heavy furniture, we'll be buying all new. Good luck with the move! 2y
Crazeedi Best wishes on you new home! 2y

The state of my library currently. I trashed two shelves, sold one, gave two to family and am keeping the small one. The books are all the ones I‘m donating... 68 in total.

EDIT: 69. Not including the books I‘ve given away to family... and I still have so.many.books.😅

Creadnorthey This was heartbreaking- a super good series (my daughter especially engaged with it quickly) understandable but a shame. 5mo

And of course the #PoutinePenPals cards were fun. The dinosaur and pug ones were 👌🏼😂

I think I‘m finally almost caught up with my letters. I‘m sending out more this week and then probably pausing for a few weeks while I move and get settled.

FantasyChick Good on you! I'm still so behind and have a ton of letters to get caught up on (yours is on the list 😬) Someday.... someday 2y
Nute Hi, Ms. Toni! I received a lovely card from you and I am planning to respond, but this post states that you are moving. Is it still okay to use the return address on the card? 2y
teebe @Nute yep! It will be forwarded to my new address. (edited) 2y

I finally dealt with the pile of mail but it still took another week to post 🤦🏻‍♀️😅 Thanks to all the #CardSwap littens! I still received cards this week, so if this isn‘t everything I‘m sure it will be here soon!

@Lollymya The city/surrounding area I live in has indeed been in Hallmark movies. I WISH it were as cozy and pretty as they make it look lol

@Texreader 50 degrees sounds amazing right now. In spring, that‘s shorts weather 😆

Ghost Story | Peter Straub
post image

1. In books, pretty much anything ghostly or demonic. In movies, I still think Freddy Krueger was a terrifying premise even though the movies no longer scare me.

2. Probably The Exorcist, at a ridiculously young age. If not A Nightmare on Elm Street. Hard to tell, I‘ve been watching them almost all my life.

3. I think this one has been on it the longest.

#spookysaturday

TheNeverendingTBR Me too, I've still to read Ghost Story. I've actually not read any of Straub's books, only The Talisman and Black House that he did with Stephen King 😬 2y
TheNeverendingTBR Thanks for playing along! 💀 2y

I literally have a stack of mail on my bookcase 🤦🏻‍♀️ Between Christmas, work, and packing, I just haven‘t had time to go through it. I think at least half of it is Litsy-related. So if you‘ve sent me something— sorry! 😅 I probably got it but haven‘t posted it yet. My goal is to go through it before Monday!
