Morning Meanderings…. Devils Spawn

2a1

Good morning and happy Tuesday!  Today is my first day back to work for the week and I am ready.  It was fun having an extra day off but really…. I need to get moving :D

Two things this morning – one is that Gautami Tripathi from India and from the blog Everything Distils Into Reading, sent in her picture of her book of the year yesterday and here it is:

If you have never checked out her blog, you should.  I enjoy reading her posts. :D

Secondly… and reason for the CREEPY title of this post, did you see I posted my review last night of Flowers In The Attic?  A re-read for me probably from 25+ years ago.  It was a fun adventure back into the attic. 

I was sharing this read synopsis with a friend I had lunch with over the weekend.  She had not ever read the book and I was sharing a few details that included the Grandmother calling the children something close to Devils Spawn but not quite.  This led to me saying it in a very creepy voice over and over…. “Devils Spawn”.  Then…. I thought it must be part of the post…

Well, it didn’t make the post, but I thought maybe it could make the morning meandering recap because if you have read the book (and even if you have not) – the grandparents are a few sandwiches short of a picnic….. awful people.

  1. Yep. The grandparents are… interesting…

  2. Who knew you could do creepy so well?

  3. And I’m eager to see Ellen Burstyn’s portrayal of the grandmother in the upcoming movie.

  4. I hope the movie does the book justice….
