A creepy end to my spooky reading. This story has always creeped me out and saddened me at the same time. This edition is really good and the graphics are amazing. 4*

TheNeverendingTBR Oooooo 😍 never knew about this. 1mo

jenniferw88 @Cinfhen I've just added a lot of books to Storygraph so you'll want to check there. There are several books that are on multiple prompts, but this will change once I know for sure which prompt I'm using it for. 1mo

Happy National Frankenstein Friday!! I‘m not making it up - check it out in the Internet 🙃

Celebrate today by wearing green, watching or reading “Frankenstein,” eating some Frankenberries (who remembers those?), or sharing your best Frankenstein cartoon.

Wow! @Catsandbooks What a fantastic sleuth you are! I adore the Creature and, in fact, I‘m teaching Frankenstein right now! I will be bringing everything you sent me right to my classroom to share. Of course, I‘ll be painting my Franky light box first! What fun!! I love the bookmark and the framed quote you made for me. Perfect! Thank you!!

Readergrrl Oh, and this book?!?! I‘ve never seen it and I thought that I had already found all the Frankenstein related texts out there. In all seriousness, I‘ll be showing it to my students and it‘s giving me some great ideas for an activity in class! 1mo
LibrarianRyan Nice! 1mo
Catsandbooks So glad you like everything and it will be helpful and fun for your class too!! 🧡 1mo

I am looking forward to this book, but it‘s taking me a while to get around to it. I am a sucker for sciencey books about spooky/paranormal stuff 🤣

Mathilda | Mary Shelley
post image

The year after publishing the 1818 edition of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley began working on her second full fictional work which would not be published until 1959. There is a plot summary & brief synopsis of how Mathilda was refused to be published during her lifetime via the below publisher's link below. This is one of the darkest 19th c works of fiction I have read in awhile. Darker than Frankenstein in some of the philosophical implications.👇

vivastory Shelley's lyrical language leaps off the page in certain passages & although it is not as capacious of a narrative as Frankenstein I rec. for anyone interested in Shelley, lesser known Victorian works, &/or novellas (my edition runs to around 130 pages).
Melville House Link:
vivastory I also noticed that one of the recent Penguin Little Black Classic Editions is a version of Mathilda:
ManyWordsLater Fascinating! Was it a finished work? 2mo

LeahBergen That IS fascinating. She‘s an author I keep meaning to learn a lot more about. 2mo
vivastory @ManyWordsLater It is! It's a shorter work 2mo
vivastory @LeahBergen I hope to revisit Frankenstein soon. Have you seen the National Theater Frankenstein featuring Cumberbatch & Miller? 2mo
Bookwomble @vivastory Thank you for those publisher links. I've read a few of MS's shorter works but hadn't heard of Matilda - now on my radar! Her giving that manuscript to her father feels significant given its subject matter. Perhaps I'm reading to much into that, but... 🤔 Apologies for crashing your question to Leah: I saw that production on TV and it was fantastic. I loved the role swap. 2mo
batsy Great review! I've heard of this but yet to read it and your intriguing review has me excited to get to it soon. 2mo
vivastory @Bookwomble It's definitely tempting to speculate on motives on her giving it to her father & why exactly it was withheld. There are also prolonged discussions of suicide which I'm sure must have been viewed as scandalous at the time. I caught the production featuring Miller as the monster but would love to see the roles reversed! It played at theaters a few days & I was hoping that it would return to theaters this fall, but no such luck. 2mo
vivastory @batsy I see that it has mixed reviews online, so I will be curious to see where you land 2mo
Branwen Oh wow! Okay, I am SO intrigued! 2mo
vivastory @Branwen I don't recall if you use a Kindle or not. If you do the Penguin Little Black Classic is available on there 👍 2mo
LeahBergen @vivastory No, I haven‘t! 2mo

I'm completely distracted and obsessed with this book. May just be the best biography I've ever read. I admired Mary Wollstonecraft before, I'm obsessed with her now. What an incredible woman.
Defo a good fit for #pemberlittens and #shesaid
