There’s a Nightmare in my Closet. Written and illustrated by Mercer Mayer . 1968.This one is a later edition. A battered ex- library copy with grubby plastic over the dust jacket, but joy of joys,underneath, the book has the same image on the hard cover, which doesn’t often seem to be the case!

#circleofbookishfriends post today is one author's collection. I spent a LOT of my college years reading #kurtvonnegut and even took an entire seminar on comparing #vonnegut to #hemingway. It was kind of a wild seminar. You could tell this prof was using it as an excuse to do research on his theory that Vonnegut just plagiarized and satirized all Hemingway's major works. I'm not a fan of Hemingway, so mostly I just listened to his rants and read my Vonnegut in peace. 😎 Favorite Vonnegut? #Galapagos #horrorlit #horror #nocturnalreads #constantreader #igreads #bookstagram #bibliophile #reading #book #booklover #bookish #bookworm #booknerd #bookaddict #bookaholic #readingbooks #bookphotography #bookcollection #booklove #lovebooks #read #fiction #reader #bookstagrammer

The Queen's Vow by: C.W.Gortner ⭐⭐⭐🌠(3.5/5) I was so excited to read this book because of the time I spent in Spain last semester, going to many of the places mentioned in this book. The first half was really great and fast paced as it went through all the struggles for Isabella to get to the throne but then the second half was so slow. It had a ton of history which was interesting and one of the reasons I wanted to read this book, but it ended up reading more like a nonfiction story than a historical fiction novel. The descriptions in this book were really great and I liked the writing style but I think the end suffered from being too history heavy and that made it less enjoyable to read in the end. . . . #bookstagram #books #booklove #booklover #booknerd #bookworm #bibliophile #bibliotech #bookaddic #bookaholic #booknerdigan #bookphotography #igreads #instabook #bookcommunity #igbooks #bookcollection  #bookrecommendation #bookreview
