Mistress of Mellyn - Victoria Holt for Genre: Suspense
Mistress of Mellyn - Victoria Holt

Maybe it's nostalgia, maybe it was the disappointment of the last book, maybe the potato finally got digested, whatever it was I quite enjoyed this. Unlike the heroine I have a bit of familiarity with gothic conventions, so there weren't a lot of surprises, not that I expected any. But now I would like to do some kind of survey of the genre, noting popular locales (Cornwall and Scotland, of course, but where else), characteristics of the leads, relationship with the servents, what happened to the first wife, etc. No doubt the time of the writing has more influence on these attributes than the supposed setting year.

 

Fun times with old houses and dark doubts.

Would also work for Romantic Suspense, Terrifying Women, Gothic, Country House Mystery, and Amateur Sleuth.

The Girl in the Locked Room by Mary Downing Hahn
The Girl in the Locked Room - Mary Downing Hahn

I read this well before Halloween Bingo, but it may interest some of you! This was just released Sept 4.

 

Mary Downing Hahn is a powerhouse of middle grade fiction, her talent transcends genre - does anyone else remember 'Stepping on the Cracks'?, but it is the supernatural stories that most people associate with her. 'The Girl in the Locked Room' is a classic story of loneliness, mystery, and discovery.

 

Jules' father renovates houses for a living, so she's used to moving to different town and living in creepy, old houses. Her mother is a writer. Jules has a bad feeling about this house, however, especially after she catches a glimpse of girl's face in an attic window. A window in a room that is sealed shut. The construction puts most of the house off-limits to Jules, but after making a new friend and hearing ghostly sounds in the night, she is driven to investigate.

 

A great thing about the book is the inclusion of the titular 'Girl's perspective. She has been locked away for so long she's forgotten everything, even her name, and it takes time for her to remember what happened to her and her family. This adds delicious atmosphere to the story.

 

The house and Jules' situation would have been a dream of mine growing up, but for Jules the nomadic life is one of loneliness. That element grounded the story and Hahn excels at creating relatable protagonists.

 

As a side note, I loved Hahn's respect for history and attention to detail in all things. My husband appreciated that she even got the dolls right.

 

Hahn still has it! This is a supernatural mystery for younger readers, but has sufficient depth for an adult to read and there are many potential topics to discuss with children.

How Full Is Your Bucket
How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids - Tom Rath,Maurie J. Manning,Mary Reckmeyer

This is a great story illustrating the concept of "bucket filling" to children. The main character goes to school one day and is told about how his words and actions affect other people, by remembering how other people's words and actions affect him. When people give compliments or go out of their way to help, a person's bucket is filled a little bit more, and they feel better. When someone says or does something mean, it's like that person is taking water out of the bucket, making someone feel bad.

 

This would be a great read aloud to be used at the beginning of the year to foster classroom community. Students could brainstorm ways that their bucket is filled. The teacher could create a classroom "bucket" that could be displayed for students to see, as  a method of positive reinforcement. When the teacher observes someone being kind, or going out of their way to help, the teacher can add some "water" to the bucket. When the bucket is full, the class gets some type of reward.
