Bloodchild | Octavia E. Butler

Pickpick

This past week's #litereads pick for the #halloweenreads #octoberreads season (our final as part of our spooky fall reads) was Bloodchild by Octavia E. Butler. This scifi modern classic story is a fascinating read that deals with an alien culture, pregnancy, love, and coming of age. I definitely enjoyed it, and you can read my full review in the link below. Drop a comment to let us know what you thought of this one!

elizabethlk Apologies for being behind schedule, my health has been especially disagreeable recently. I'm hopeful that everything should stay back in the Sunday-Saturday schedule after this. 1mo

Our most recent #litereads #halloweenreads pick was The Fruit of My Woman by Han Kang, and the week for it has come to an end. This story of a woman transforming into a tree is a wild ride, and one I found to be engaging and enthralling. You can read my full review in the link below.

Our newest #litereads selection, chosen especially for our #halloweenreads picks, is The Fruit of My Woman by Han Kang. This Korean story, translated to English by Deborah Smith, inspired the author's later book, The Vegetarian. This short story depicts a woman's transformation into a plant. You can read the story in full for free from the link in the full article below.

Apologies for the lateness, but the full review of last week's #litereads pick, Locked Doors by Mary Roberts Rinehart, is now available! This classic gothic mystery starring a nurse was a fun and interesting read, and it kind of reminded me of Scooby-Doo. You can read the full review in the link below.

Thought I'd zero in on and share my #currentlyreading and #TBR #graphicnovel adventures 😊💜📚

The Backstagers is one I've had on my TBR for a minute and I finally placed a hold on it today. Hotel Dare I found out about after reading The Avant-Guards.

I'm all kinds of giddy and excited about these reads!

The perfect haunted house story with a perfect #audiobook narration by Bernadette Dunne. I love the subtextual queerness too. #QueerBooks #HalloweenReads
