  2. Jason and I did like Haunting of Hill House, though we didn't find it overwhelmingly scary. I do believe we'll like this new one. I'll save it to binge on around Halloween!

    1. This is more of a suspense than horror. I thoroughly hated Henry James' Turn of the Screw book, but the series might be better.

  3. For a split second, I thought it was another version of The Ring because of the black hair. I don't do too well with suspense, but I can handle spooky!

  4. Suspense is good for Halloween too. I tend to read more mysteries in the fall as well as watch more on the telly, too.

    1. Dahlink, while I was away today on business, my cat gave birth to a little white rat! What a surprise welcomed me home this evening! She sat all proud with her baby today in her box, I think I know who the father is too! I'm glad it is just one kitten, though.

  5. You shall send me a photo of your new little white rat if you get the chance. I have told Jason I would like to get a little white kitty, maybe when the dogs are gone. Cats are so much easier to care for than dogs!

    1. They are totally! It turns out I have three white rats, not just one, at least as far as I could count them up this evening in the darkness. When I came home I saw just one.
