QOTD : What is your favourite scary horror story? One of my favourite Stephen King books is Misery 😰 All writers want people to love their characters as much as they do... but Annie Wilkes takes it to a terrifying level 😣

Hey Booklovers 😊 So our brand new book club @toppingthetbr will be reading Eliza and her Monsters by @chessiezappia for its October inaugural read πŸ€— The more the merrier, so if you would like to join please go like the page and join our Goodreads group πŸ˜‹
.
.
.
Synopsis:
Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.
In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.
Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.
But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s builtβ€”her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanityβ€”begins to fall apart.

Sometimes we should express our gratitude for the small and simple things like the scent of the rain, the taste of your favorite food, or the sound of a loved one's voice.
