Unpack those swords, because it’s time again for…
Yes, that’s right, Heather and I will be celebrating October and all things creepy by hosting another (hopefully) fun version of our Dueling Monsters read-a-long. If you weren’t around last year (or you forgot…I myself had to go back and read my own posts to remember what we did), Heather hosted a read-a-long of Frankenstein while I simultaneously hosted a read-along of Dracula. Personally, I think Dracula won the duel, but I’m a bit biased (so not a fan of Frank). Anyways…we had a lot of fun reading and comparing the books. And remember…when reading about monsters, it’s always safer to read with a friend, so we’re giving you the perfect opportunity to read these books!
This year, we’ll be reading about monsters of a different kind. Heather will be hosting Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, while I’m going to urge you all to read The Picture of Dorian Gray with me (and bonus! There’s a graphic novel version if you need a little incentive, although I’d encourage you to read the novel first (and double bonus! There’s a movie! We might just be having movie night on Twitter later in the month)).
Just like last year, we’ll start the month with a little background info and some questions to consider as you read the book(s). Mid-month we’ll check in with all of the participants. And at the end of the month, we’ll post a wrap-up of the event. You will have all month to read one (or both) of the books and post your thoughts.
So whaddya say, are you in? If you’re interested in reading Dorian Gray with me, sign up with Mr. Linky below. If you’d rather get down with Jekyll and Hyde (or you’re feeling like an overachiever and want to read both), pop on over to Age 30+…A Lifetime of Books to sign up to read those other guys.
