📚 Read: You Should Have Left by Daniel Kehlmann
This is a quick, creepy read that plays with form and language a bit to build tension. I enjoyed that part but thought it could have done more. Still, this was a fun dip into scary-story season!
My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2958759357
;🎬 Watched: Over the Garden Wall, 2014
This was recommended to me ages ago, and like a fool, I waited this long to watch it. I’m already looking forward to watching it again, each year, around this time of year.
My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ https://letterboxd.com/cygnoir/film/over-the-garden-wall-2014/
📚 Read: Munmun by Jesse Andrews
Brilliantly-written satire that is also truly fun to read? Munmun is funny, heartbreaking, strange, and poignant. Andrews lambastes the absurdity of socioeconomic strata in this YA genre-bender.

The 24-hour news cycle is overwhelming and upsetting. Regardless, we owe it to each other to be responsible readers and sharers, so let’s check our facts. FactCheck.org is nonpartisan and a good place to start. https://www.factcheck.org
