It’s the month of Halloween and if you’re looking to zombify your TBR, @stdennard has this amazing series called SOMETHING STRANGE AND DEADLY that you should totally check out!

I actually have absolutely no interest in zombie stories, shows, anything zombie really EXCEPT these books which I loved but just look at their amazing author. I mean, you can’t go wrong!

Do you have any books you recommend for the spooky season?

Literature-savvy adults who “don’t understand” why adults enjoy Harry Potter (and other death-centric YA lit) are the stale raisins of the human race. Listen, adult lit is tagged as boring or depressing because a lot of it is about coming to terms with death, whereas YA lit is seen as immature because it’s almost universally about coming to terms with life. Harry Potter is about coming to terms with death as a means of coming to terms with life, ok Chadwick IV? Mystery solved sit back down on ur pile of 1st edition Steinbecks

Beautiful flowers for a beautiful book! Have y'all read Anna-Marie McLemore’s WILD BEAUTY yet? It’s out NOW from @fiercereadsya! 🏵🌼🌹🌸🌺 

I couldn’t resist taking this photo. It was the perfect opportunity to take advantage of all those fake flowers I use for decoration around my room!

Speaking of flowers, I LOVE orchids. What’s your favorite flower?

Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?
