Hey guys. it’s Lois, back with another Standalone Sunday. Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme created by Megan @ Bookslayerreads. Every Sunday we make a post about a standalone book, so one that is not part of a series. There is an awful lot of focus are books that are part of a series, so it is always nice to feature a standalone book. I’m going to continue what I have been doing for the past few weeks and show off another Roald Dahl book.
This weeks Standalone Sunday book is The Witches by Roald Dahl.
“This is not a fairy-tale. This is about REAL WITCHES. Real witches don’t ride around on broomsticks. They don’t even wear black cloaks and hats. They are vile, cunning, detestable creatures who disguise themselves as nice, ordinary ladies. So how can you tell when you’re face to face with one? Well, if you don’t know yet you’d better find out quickly-because there’s nothing a witch loathes quite as much as children and she’ll wield all kinds of terrifying powers to get rid of them.”
I don’t really remember the book of this story all that much. I know I loved it and read it a few times when I was younger. It has haunted me for years. What I remember most about this story is the movie adaptation of it! That absolutely terrified me as a child! It is scarier to me that most horror films I have seen recently. There is just something about the story and the film that will continue to terrify me for years. But this book is amazingly written and I love it and always will!
There you have it this weeks Standalone Sunday. Comment below if you have read this book or plan on reading this book as well as your thoughts.
