“I usually love the dark, but on this night, it is not my friend”
Yesterday arrived my first PageHabit Horror box from @pagehabit and…what can I say? It was just great, so this is #mypagehabit unboxing, a great way to make a donation to support children’s literacy around the world. Each month, PageHabit partners with a different organization to help get books into the hands of children everywhere.
For the month of August, The Buea Book Project and the Catholic University Institute of Buea (CUIB) [a new university open to students of all faiths in Buea, Cameroon] has been chosen, to help them build their first library.
This month new release is THE GRIP OF IT by JAC JEMC and it comes with her own written annotations every few pages! I love horror books and can’t wait to be creeped out by the ghost of this novel…you can see a few of them hidden on the cover 😏 🌵
A thief steals the air from a room. Children invent a nursery rhyme to make sense of their fate, and a band of girls rot from the outside in. These characters stumble through joy and murder and confusion, only to survive and wait for the next catastrophe to arrive. Moments so brief and disturbing you can’t afford to look away.
I can’t wait to enter this spooky, ghostly world, and I’m sure that the author’s special notes — alongside her damn cool letter — will enhance the experience.
The box also contained another ghost novel, RAZORHURST by JUSTINE LARBALESTIER, and an horror short story by HUGH SHEEHY, THE LAST DAYS, and a few fun, quirky and useful bookish items:
- two sets of magnetic bookmarks;
- a cactus pen that I absolutely adore;
- 2 feather rubber pens;
- a Matilda bookmark with the quote "I'm wondering what to read next”;
- a pair of socks that says "if you can read this" - "pass me my book" (I’m in love with them). 🌵
