[BHE 234] Launch of November – December Reading Theme: Dragons, Mermaids, Vampires – Legendary Beasts and Mythical Creatures


Myra here.

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:

  1. Fantasy, fantasy, and more fantasy
  2. Books that are dreamlike, surreal, otherworldly
  3. Mythical creatures like the phoenix, gryphon, unicorns, dragons, mermaids
  4. Vampires and Zombies, Angels and Demons
