Portable Mistletoe

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

The Graveyard Book ★★★★★

The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman

Nobody Owens is adorable, even when he’s being a brat. The characters that Gaiman surrounds him with are fun to read and each is uniquely individual, from the inhabitants of the graveyard, to the ghouls who kidnap him, to the members of the Jack society. And of course, his friend Scarlett. Even better is hearing this story read to you by Neil Gaiman himself.


I re-read this for the Vampires vs. Werewolves square in 2016 Halloween Bingo. It’s more vampires AND werewolves, as

Silas and Miss Lupescu are colleagues rather than antagonists,

(show spoiler)

but I still think it fits.
