Right now, I am hooked with the new psychological thriller from K.L. Slater, Closer. Despite not trusting any adult characters and there’s some I can’t help but despise, I am gripped by the story. Emma and Shaun decided that though their marriage isn’t working anymore, it shouldn’t affect their daughter, Maisie. And so, they still live in one roof and appear to be together in their daughter’s eyes. Everything is going smoothly until Shaun fell in love with Joanne who happens to be Emma’s boss. Shaun moved out of the house and Emma come to accept it and hope for the best for her daughter. But with every visit to her father and his girlfriend, Emma can see how it slowly changing Maisie. But no one believes her. And it’s up to Emma to find out what Joanne is hiding if she is to save her daughter.

I’ve finished these five lovely children’s and graphic books recently. I decided to get them on NetGalley to help me pick up my reading pace since I’ve been on the brink of a slump lately. Fortunately, it did help me get back on track. I’ll also leave some short thoughts on these books below. 

Muddy is a picky eater raccoon. Not only did he likes leftovers even if there’s rule that prohibits them to steal leftovers, but he also prefers to eat them on plates. Muddy can’t help himself especially when there’s this restaurant on the other side of the river. But Muddy gets caught and it’s only right for him to make amends. This is a short and fun read with nice illustrations. Little kids will surely love Muddy. 

Ida and the Whale is a charming tale about Ida who lives in a tree house but wishes to see what’s beyond. Then one night, a flying whale visited her and takes her on an incredible journey. This is also a short one with more pictures than text but the painted illustrations are absolutely stunning. I just wish it’s longer, though. Still, it is sure to mesmerize kids.

Disney Descendants: Evie Wicked Runway is about Evie, a talented designer who was chosen to compete on a national design competition. The prize is a generous grant for any charity they choose and Evie already knows where to use it if ever she wins. But someone is willing to do everything just for Evie not to win at all. A cute story that kids who love fashion would surely enjoy. The graphics are impressive and adorable especially the clothing designs. They are also very pleasant to the eyes. I can’t wait to see how Evie will come up with a new design in such a short time. 

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey a quirky comic book just in time for the Halloween. Jack Skellington’s ghost pet, Zero, is missing. Halloween is canceled and Jack decided to send a search party for him. But unknown to him, Zero ends up in Christmas Town. Will the master and pup see each other again? I just love the pages, from the first up to the last. The illustrations are so beautiful and it’s evident how much creativity was poured into it. If only there’s more dialogue to it and maybe a little longer. 

Book Love by Debbie Tung is a charming comic perfect for bookworms. Witty, cute and fun! Book lovers will surely be able to identify with this funny comics. With every reader’s struggles to keep up with their TBR to that constant trip to the library and bookstore. Some may not be original, but overall very entertaining.

I guess I’ll read House of Falling Embers next. I really love its cover and it’s giving off some creepy vibe on it. It looks like the perfect spooky read. I’ll leave the blurb below.

When Artemis was thirteen, her best friend Aris was swallowed by the crumbling house they found in the woods. Like a coward, she abandoned him to the horror within.

She moved away. She tried to forget. But when she finds herself back in her old neighborhood after college, the ghosts—and her guilt—are waiting. A charred figure stalks her dreams, and someone, or something, haunts her from the trees.

Going back into the woods might be the only way to save her sanity.

Because nine years later, the house is still there. Still waiting. Still restless.

 

That’s it for my WWW. See you again next Wednesday and feel free to share your own WWWs below. Have a good day!
