October’s Book Of The Month.

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. 

Happy reading.

      1. I can only speak from my experience of the Irish school system, but I don’t believe it’s a text that can be done justice in secondary school (high school), there simply isn’t enough time on the curriculum to allow students to digest it properly. It is a gothic novel that presents very layered, complex, and nuanced themes. I would recommend giving it another chance. You may really enjoy it, or you may not like it still but that’s okay too. These things are subjective. Thanks so much for your comments.
