halloween recs

It has been a long since I have posted anything regarding my goal to re-read vintage Young Adult books (mostly from the 80’s/90’s but there are some from the 70’s thrown in there too!). I thought it was about time that I did something about that and what better opportunity to discuss my favourite teen horror novels than the week leading up to Halloween?

Frankenstein

In awe after seeing Frankenstein…

I just got back home from watching Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch act the hell out of playing Victor Frankenstein and the Creature respectively. What an incredible performance – both were absolutely mesmerizing in their roles (though I have to say I was especially captivated by Cumberbatch’s Creature – you feel both sympathy for him and ultimately horror at what he becomes).

Waiting on Wednesday: Court of Thorns and Roses

wow

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases the upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.


I was taking part in both Waiting on Wednesday and WWW Wednesdays but it was getting a little too much trying to do both on the same day. I have decided to keep doing both but now on alternate weeks. That way I can still keep doing both of them – the best of both worlds really!

Top Ten Books To Read To Get In The Halloween Spirit 

Halloween is just around the corner. Skeletons will be after you! Witches cats and big, black bats, ghosts and goblins too… Seriously though, I often used to wish I lived in America. They make Halloween look so fun! It just wasn’t the same in the UK. 😦

Nevermind, there are plenty of other ways to get into the Halloween spirit. Reading a scary book will do just the trick!

Stepping Backwards in Time…

backwards

In light of the fact that the clocks go back in the early hours of tomorrow, I thought I would do something a little bit different. Time is literally going back an hour – so what better way to celebrate this fact than having a look at Young Adult books that feature time travel?

I haven’t read all of these series but they definitely intrigue me…
