Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Since Christmas just ended a few days ago, we’re doing recent additions to our collections. I’m including ones I got for gifts and a few I ordered online afterward.
Note: This story is not fantasy/horror. It’s another realistic vignette following the childhood experiences of Warren Cowell, a character I wrote who’s 34 in the main manuscript but 13 in this story. This is set on Halloween (because I’m just feeling out-of-season) and portrays an oddball kid in good ol’ dysfunctional suburbia, circa 1997. There is some non-PC language which is meant for the purpose of realism and doesn’t reflect the feelings of the writer.

I’m totally for turning this into Indigenous Peoples’ Day, because I don’t consider Christopher Columbus to be somebody worth celebrating. Anyway, because of COVID Thanksgiving will just be me and my immediate family having a seasonal meal at the dinner table. We don’t make a big deal out of this holiday anyway, but gratitude is important especially when people (myself included) tend to focus on the negative in their lives. So, without further ado…
