#booktober day 12: A book I wish there was a sequel to. This book was so good and different. Ms Okorafor always takes the untraveled plot. The worlds she creates are so full and complete, you want to travel to them and live there and explore. #MGBooktober

#booktober day 9:favourite mg series. The Jumbies and Rise Of the Jumbies are such exciting books with realistic characters who handle their situation in a way that‘s believable (despite the fact they are taking on Jumbies!) My 8yr old kid loves it‘s do I! #mgbooktober

#booktober day 8: a book that deserves more recognition than it gets. I went into to this book not knowing it was classified as horror, which perhaps made it even more haunting to me.

#booktober day 6: best book cover ever! This was so hard to pick! I actually rarely pay attention to the cover of books, but if there is one that intrigued me and made me want to read it, it was this. I was very young when I first read this book and thinking of this cover and it was for a kid book, well, I just HAD to read it! #mgbooktober

#booktober day 5: favourite school based adventure! Obviously it has to be these oldies but goodies! One of the best thing about having an 8yr old is getting to reread old favourites and laugh again at Greg Heffley‘s misadventures!

#booktober day 4: A book you couldn‘t put down. This book was so good and I stayed up way too late just to finish it. I believe there will be more and it will be a series, and that makes me so happy!

#booktober day 3: Most exciting debut of 2018 so far! I thought this #mg book was great! The characters and plot were perfect. I loved the #spanish words sprinkled throughout. I keep buying this book to give as gifts for all the young people in my life! #magic #tweens #mgbooktober

#booktober day 2: the book I want to read next and why. This is the next book after #AkataWitch , which I loved and I am excited to dive back into Sunny‘s world again. #NnediOkotafor takes you into worlds that exhaust you in the best possible way. It‘s like you really live in the worlds she writes about. #witch #halloween

Currently reading this book which is absolutely perfect for the #beach ! It's #sciencefiction but I'd definitely recommend it to those who don't usually like science fiction as it's also about the nature of humans. #NnediOkorafor is a favourite author of mine. Many of her books take place in #Nigeria or some other place in #Africa and sometimes #space ! So check out this #beachread ! #aliens #seacreatures #vacation #holiday #memorialdayweekend

What a fun book! I enjoyed it and so did my first grader. She keeps looking at all the pictures. This is a fun take on monsters and hidden dark spots. We both really liked that Margo was a brave brown girl (just like my brave brown girl!) Me and my kid can't wait for more! #representationmatters #reluctantreaders #graphicnovel

This novella is so good, it makes you sad it is so short! Less than 100 pages but so unique, with a main character I have certainly never read about before. I can't say more as I don't want to give anything away. It is #ScienceFiction but also more than that, meaning that if #scifi is not necessarily your thing, I'd still recommend this. It stays with you. Even now I don't think I am done processing it. #Africa #aliens #justreadit #Himba #Namibia

This book is not particularly good or funny. It relies heavily on the reader already having watched the movie. So why do I recommend it? Because it shows women being #Scientists, being #badass and not afraid of ghost. The cartoons are cute and it is sometimes fun to read a book that the kid likes even if you don't. If my kid wants to read it, then we read it! #readingisawesome #whoyougonnacall #Iaintfraidofnoghosts #AllHallowsRead

Here's what I am reading for #AllHallowsRead ! When I read it late at night, I keep peeking over the book towards the darkened areas of the house... so far this #spooky book has me seeing #ghosts and hearing things that go bump in the night!

A good book for first graders. Not scary at all. Although the main character is a #witch, the story is really about believing in yourself, which is always a great message to find in books! My daughter loved the pictures and enjoyed the story too. It may not become a classic but it is still worthwhile to check out. #GiveaScaryBook #AllHallowsRead #Halloween

We have our first grader read everyday, sometimes she's not too keen. This is a perfect short read. It was not too difficulty nor too #scary. We made the room dark and she used her play torch to read this "scary" book to me and her dad. Perfect for #Halloween ! #GiveaScaryBook #AllHallowsRead

The first "big kid" book my kid has read alone. For the month of #October I thought I would share with her #Halloween themed books. Franny is so funny! Even I was laughing as my kid read aloud, the hubs laughed too whenever he was in earshot. The story keeps you interested and was suspenseful w/o being too scary. My kid loves the #Frankenstein movie so she especially enjoyed all the allusions. #GiveaScaryBook #AllHallowsRead
