Hello everyone. Here’s to the first of October. I am very excited about this month because I feel like there are so many amazing texts that can be enjoyed especially as we lead up to Halloween. I think October is a really fun month because we can explore horrors, thrillers, cult classics, eerie stories, and more.
I will not just be discussing horror in October as I know that not everyone enjoys horror, and I am aware that not everyone enjoys Halloween so as always I am going to attempt to keep the content varied while also leaning into the Halloween spirit however with that being said, this month’s Book Of The Month is a gothic novel.
If you follow me on Instagram (@katelovesliterature), then you will already know that October’s #bookofthemonth is Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
This is another classic, and it is a novel that I have read many times and studied in great detail, and I am looking forward to reading it again because it has been a while.
So please feel free to read along with me and enjoy October’s Book Of The Month.
Let me know in the comments below if you have read Shelley’s text, and/or let me know your opinion on gothic literature in general. Do you love it? Hate it? Unfamiliar with it? Let me know, I love hearing from you.
