Emmy, Purveyor Of Spines
Okay! One more to close out the night, and this one is YA horror. This one I love because it's definitely 1, Welcome to Night Vale vibes, which is completely #MSWL for me. And 2, it makes me LAUGH. My sense of humour is... a little shy... but this book nails it.
Micro Flash Fiction @MicroFlashFic“I should learn how to can food.”
“My grandma was into that.”
“What did she can?”
“She never gave you anything?”
“No. She has tons of unlabeled jars. I wasn’t allowed near them.”
“Did you ask?”
“Once. She said she’d tell me when I was old enough. But she never did.”

The Library Owl 🎄🎅🦉 @SketchesbyBozeI’m never not thinking about St. Werburgh (died 699), who raised a beloved goose from the dead after it had already been eaten by her foe and digested. The bones took on flesh and the goose returned to life “with a glad honk.” pic.twitter.com/9Soh7dtmRo
#MSWL THIS is the retelling I'm waiting for.
Barlow Adams @BarlowAdams9: Can I sleep with you?
9: Had a dream about the Lullaby Lady.
9: An old woman with no skin on her hands.
M: Why do you call her that?
9: Because she stands next to your bed and hums while you sleep.
M: Sure, just let Daddy put the house up for sale real quick.
Pretty much any weird, creepy, unsettling thing your kid comes up with unprovoked is on my #MSWL. 🤷🏽♀️
The Library Owl 🎄🎅🦉 @SketchesbyBozethings to ask yourself at a party:
• where are the bookshelves
• where are the exits
• who poisoned the wine
• who wanted the hostess dead and why
• does the killer think they can outwit you, the greatest detective in the world
Amber Sparks🪓 @ambernoelleFour-year-old: *coloring* I’m drawing a princess
Four-year-old: Her dress is covered with pictures of all her memories
Four-year-old: She’s making a worried face, because the dress is almost out of room and then there will be no more memories
