Fast paced, small town horror.

An amusing group of tales with a moral attached. Filled with Baum‘s usual sassiness and snark. Very enjoyable.

I liked it, but I‘m not sure if I get it. The main character lives in her own little world and it may have been too surreal for me.

Don‘t go into this short story collection thinking all the tales are supernatural or you will be disappointed.

The Dollhouse Murders | Betty Ren Wright

Heartwarming and creepy, this book teaches important lessons about acceptance of those who are different, and also deals with survivors guilt while unraveling a decades old murder mystery.

I haven‘t read this since I was a kid. I‘m about a third of the way through and it still holds up. I love that it started out with teens wearing windbreakers at the mall. So 80‘s!

Riddled with typos that kept pulling me out of the otherwise enjoyable story.

Needed a good editing. The plot and characters were interesting, but there was way too much unnecessary exposition.

Just finished the last book in this series and... SO MANY FEELS. I think I need a dedicated tissue box whenever I read any Suzanne Collins books. 😭😭😭

The penultimate book in the Underland Chronicles. This book is a set up for the final book, unlike the earlier books that had a conclusion at the end. Great writing and lots of feels.

Fantastic middle grade fantasy adventure. It was predictable but that didn‘t take anything away from the story. I read a ton of middle grade fantasy so maybe I‘m just good at seeing where everything is headed.

A fantastic (ha!) collection of short stories featuring castles of all kinds. These are not strictly fantasy stories. There are quite a few sci-fi, as well as horror and straight up fiction.

Closed for the Season | Mary Downing Hahn
post image

Picked this up today from a Little Free Library while walking my dog 🐕 I‘m planning on reading ALL the Mary Downing Hahn this October and this is one I that I didn‘t have yet!

This one is a murder mystery that leads the two protagonists to an abandoned amusement park. I used to work in an amusement park and can confirm that even non-abandoned ones are creepy when empty after dark.
