  1. I agree about animal cruelty and animal deaths in books. I can’t handle it. I loved The Troop but that scene with the turtle..😢 It just would not end. It was torture.


  2. Hi there! I’m currently catching up on your podcast and am loving it. You’ve added a lot of books to my TBR list ❤
    I like recommending Shirley Jackson as a beginner horror read, her stuff is creepy but not terrifying.
    Just wanted to give you a heads up that in the show notes on episodes 2, 4 & 5, this blog address is spelled wrong and doesn't work as a link.
