#BookishThisTimeLastYear

discussion-2

To help me get back to blogging regularly, I have decided to participate in BlogTober hosted by Hâf from the Library Looter and Anniek from Anniek’s Library.  Today’s prompt is “This Time Last Year.”

Therefore, today’s post is a short discussion about what I was reading, this time last year.

For this prompt, I had to look back in my reading journal to figure out what I was reading at this time last year.  This time last year I was in the middle of reading Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.  After I finished Between the World and Me I read Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery, and those were the only two books that I read in October last year.

Review

To help me get back to blogging regularly, I have decided to participate in BlogTober hosted by Hâf from the Library Looter and Anniek from Anniek’s Library.   Today’s prompt is to post a book review.

Today’s book review is going to be for Bunnicula by James Howe.  You can also find this review on Goodreads.

Bunnicula is such a classic book. What I love about this book is that it is narrated by the Monroe family dog, Harold. The fact that the family dog is telling the story makes it unique and humorous. Strange things happen in this book when the family brings home a bunny from a night at the movies, ironically seeing a vampire movie. Chester the family cat gets suspicious of the bunny, aptly named Bunnicula after a while of observing the bunny’s and its habits. Chester recruits Harold to help him investigate. Chester is convinced that Bunnicula isn’t a normal bunny, but actually a vampire bunny, especially after reading the note that the bunny was left with, it’s all in Romanian. There is quite a bit of bonus content in this book, and it was great to read. I also enjoyed seeing all the different covers throughout the years. I loved reading this book again, it was very nostalgic.

#SpookyMiddleGrade

challenge

To help me get back to blogging regularly, I have decided to participate in BlogTober hosted by Hâf from the Library Looter and Anniek from Anniek’s Library.  Today’s prompt is Spooky Middle-grade.

For me, this one was somewhat easy.  For this one, I decided to go with a classic middle-grade and that is Bunnicula by James Howe.  It’s not the most spooky but it is a little spooky,  I mean the main character is a vampire bunny.
