Think I'm gonna be werewolf-Jughead for Halloween. One of my friends was a Weird Sister from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (not one of them specifically, no wig or anything to match, just the same style dress, like a CAOS-sona).

Wonder if I could get any other friends to join me and have a whole Archie horror group theme.

@lapis Right? It's such a weird thing about this type of kid books. Like, a big part of what makes it so appealing and easy to get absorbed in is how distinct and familiar the characters are. Like w/BSC or Sweet Valley, they all have a few very extremely strong traits, which is helpful for the reader but means every single person who ever describes them is going to repeat the same exact traits in the same exact way regardless of how weird that is for their relationship with the person.

@lapis I mean, it *should* be chilling at least, it's right there in the title!

I actually am currently reading this one. It's not bad so far! A little out of character, some details that I don't think line up with the show so I'm reading it as like one universe over, but definitely not bad and close *enough* if you're missing the show and want more.

One big thing is Ambrose feels like a mix of comic and show version. I don't mind, I like both characters and think it works alright.

Brown dragon for Etsy. Got another gold and bronze/copper to finish, and then I gotta fire up the sewbot and make a couple of blues and greens.

And my sister posted her notebook (adventure/bugs here: on FB and one of her friends wants to buy one so I guess I need to get some of those listed.

@nobody Added that to the list, thanks! I hadn't paid much attention to it before even though I like Gaiman's work in general. Your description caught my interest.

@douglasfur Well, when I was a kid I read ghost stories. But like, age-appropriate ones so they were pretty tame.

As an adult I've kind of avoided horror. I read The Shining a few years ago and liked it, *loved* Horrorstor last year...

I guess sort of light-hearted spookiness and/or more psychological stuff as opposed to actual killers or something.

Since stores have decided it's Halloween and I'm seeing reminders everywhere, I keep wanting to re-read the Hocus Pocus novelization. Which is a *little* weird because, looking back at my notes from last year, I didn't actually like it that much.

I'll probably read it again anyway, but does anyone have some suggestions for other (better) Halloween reads?

BookToot Club

A place for sharing and discussing books. After suggesting a Mastodon-based book club and getting a lot more interest than I expected, I decided to make a place specifically for facilitating that. So this aims to be a home for creating and organizing book clubs and read-alongs.

Not just for clubs, though. Like books? Want to talk about books and read about what other people are reading? Congrats, you're welcome here.

Well, with some restrictions. No hate speech, threats, etc. See our rules/code of conduct for more of that and general posting guidelines.

Not looking to join a new instance but wanting to join in the discussion anyway? No problem, just look for and use the hashtags.

This instance also now has its own Patreon page to help with the basic costs and maybe even (if I'm being very optimistic) help it grow into more. Check it out if you're willing/able to consider helping me out that way.

Thanks for stopping by!
