It is an extra special book hunting expedition post, as we are launching our new reading theme this November – December: Dragons, Mermaids, Vampires: Legendary Beasts and Mythical Creatures.
Essentially, we are looking for the following titles:
- Fantasy, fantasy, and more fantasy
- Books that are dreamlike, surreal, otherworldly
- Mythical creatures like the phoenix, gryphon, unicorns, dragons, mermaids
- Vampires and Zombies, Angels and Demons
