Toil and Trouble | Tess Sharpe, Jessica Spotswood

I picked up this YA story collection for some witchy stories as a change of pace. As with most anthologies, I liked some stories more than others, but overall this was a fun and (to borrow a friend‘s term) fempowering read.🔸#octoberreads2021

This lovely book documents the 2015 reunion of longtime friends The Dalai Lama and the Archbishop Desmond Tutu and their hopeful, compassionate conversations about the nature of joy and how to practice inviting joy into our lives even when circumstances are difficult.🔸#octoberreads2021

This time I couldn‘t get the audiobook version from the library, but I still enjoyed the second book of Cassie‘s adventures, which take her and her paranormal documentarian parents (and her ghost bestie Jacob) to Paris.🔸#octoberreads2021

City of Ghosts | Victoria Schwab

Rec‘d by one of my book club friends (thanks @Soubhiville 🙂). I thoroughly enjoyed the audiobook version of this story about 12yo Cassie, whose best friend is a ghost boy and whose parents are filming a documentary about paranormal folklore and history in Edinburgh.🔸#octoberreads2021

Plum Rains | Andromeda Romano-Lax

A re-read of a new favorite I discovered last year about a Filipina nurse caring for a centenarian in near-future Tokyo, Japan, and the AI robot who changes their lives.🔸#octoberreads2021

Book Love | Debbie Tung

I found Halloween strangely comforting this year, arriving as it did right after the passing of a dear friend. Most of my reads were ghost stories that helped me start facing my grief.🔸#octoberreads2021
