Apparently Sarah Pinborough - whose book had one of the creepiest, most unexpected endings I've ever read - called The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor "A twisty thriller and downright creepy ending. Five stars.” This both intrigues and terrifies me, 😂😭😱
book that I'm so looking forward to reading but haven't yet had time for. #neverendingtbrproblems
, am I right? The design of the book jacket, the reviews I've read, and the serious creepiness factor make it feel like an autumn read to me... but it might be TOO scary to read in darker, gloomier weather. So maybe I should make it a beach read to counteract the scariness - sometimes I'm a wimp!
Have you read this one? Thoughts on creepiness factor? Is it really there or is it overhyped and/or I should stop being a baby?
- Lyrical or simple prose? Both! Either! Depending on my mood
- Favourite Character Name - I feel like this isn't something I usually think about... maybe Veblen in "The Portable Veblen", but that's only because I just finished reading it and I like the way her name played into the plot of the book, as well as her character background. I also love Jo March - such a no nonsense name for such a no nonsense lady. And Katniss Everdeen, because what a cool name! Okay... maybe I've spent more time thinking about this than I was willing to admit...
- Book that made me LOL - Trevor Noah's Born a Crime - seriously, everyone should read this book. Now.
- Book BF/GF - probably Jo March again. But that's just because I wanted to be her when I grew up... and maybe still do...
- Cried in a Good Way - I used to not cry at books or movies EVER. And now I feel like I cry at EVERYTHING. But cry in a good way? I'm not sure. Can I give a non-book answer? Hamilton. Sobbed my way through much of the second Act. It. Was. AMAZING.
