[BHE 359] Picturebooks and Graphic Novels By Female Authors

Library Haul and Adopted Books.


Myra here.

It’s Sunday once again, time to share about our recent book hunting expeditions. Since we have just recently launched our new reading theme for April – June, I looked for titles in the library that may be a good fit.

Here are a few graphic novels, picturebooks, adult novels and YA fiction that found their way into my hands.

#HorrorPostal Book Club and #IRLBookClub Choice

We are now in Round 2 of my #HorrorPostalBookClub in Litsy spanning several countries. Seed by Ania Ahlborn has been selected by a book club member from Germany sent to me here in Singapore. I shall send this one over to another book club member in Seattle, where it will be sent to other members from the US, Canada, and Spain – until it gets back to Germany where it originally came from. We rock that way. I am also very fortunate that our book club members agreed to select female horror authors this year after having known about our #WomenReadWomen2019 theme. I also have just recently received back my original selected book from last year: The Fireman by Joe Hill. I have just read everyone’s notes in my reading journal. I have to admit this is a really ingenious idea.

How about you? What books found their way into your hands recently?
