BHA (7)

It’s that time of month again….. No really! It’s the good time of the month. ;) It’s time to announce our next book selection. September’s book will be…

Matilda by Roald Dahl

You’re in for a treat if you’ve never read this book before!

Time for October’s choices. I tried to get an interesting mix of books. While they aren’t outright terrifying, I think they all have a spooky or unsettling vibe to them.

Dracula by Bram Stocker

I can’t find a good summary but we all know the basics. It’s a vampire story. No, the vampires don’t sparkle.

Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Connor, Risa, and Lev are running for their lives.

The Second Civil War was fought over reproductive rights. The chilling resolution: Life is inviolable from the moment of conception until age thirteen. Between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, however, parents can have their child “unwound,” whereby all of the child’s organs are transplanted into different donors, so life doesn’t technically end. Connor is too difficult for his parents to control. Risa, a ward of the state is not enough to be kept alive. And Lev is a tithe, a child conceived and raised to be unwound. Together, they may have a chance to escape and to survive.

Newes From The Dead by Mary Hooper

WRONGED. HANGED. ALIVE? (AND TRUE!)
Anne can’t move a muscle, can’t open her eyes, can’t scream. She lies immobile in the darkness, unsure if she’d dead, terrified she’s buried alive, haunted by her final memory—of being hanged. A maidservant falsely accused of infanticide in 1650 England and sent to the scaffold, Anne Green is trapped with her racing thoughts, her burning need to revisit the events—and the man—that led her to the gallows.
 
Meanwhile, a shy 18-year-old medical student attends his first dissection and notices something strange as the doctors prepare their tools . . . Did her eyelids just flutter? Could this corpse be alive?
Happy voting! Are you reading Leviathan with us this month? How’s it going for you?
