Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts | Anthony Bourdain, Joel Rose
post image
Pickpick

Ok, I promise that this is the last graphic novel for #MayMadnessWeek3 #graphicnovel challenge! 😁

Drawing from Japanese mythologies of yokai, yorei and obake, Anthony Bourdain cooked up eight terrifying tales of fear & food from around the world in Hungry Ghosts. Great artwork, enjoyed the stories but they're not scary for me.

Rating: 3🌟

Both entertaining and fact-filled, this tells the story of two scientists - chief medical examiner Charles Norris & toxicologist Alexander Gettler - in the early 20th century New York, who laid the groundwork for forensic medicine which was pivotal for both forensic science & future generations.

Set in Philadelphia 1870s, this is a fictional biography of Dr. Spencer Black, a surgeon who specializes in teratology & later on embarks on a dark journey to prove that mythological creatures are our ancestors and were real species that once walked the earth. So-so read!

The first book in this series & it was adapted into Monk TV series on S5 E4 - Mr. Monk Can't See A Thing- with some significant differences. I enjoyed it very much & will definitely be reading this series!

#Recommendsday for #MayMadness Week 1: #Booktotvmovieadaptations

📚 Annihilation and The Terror were really good reads. I personally think they were much better than the movie/tv series.

📚 The Help & Bird Box --> I enjoyed both the book and movie adaptations

📚 I'll be reading The Alienist, The Time Traveler's Wife & Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children 🙂

@TheReadingMermaid @RadicalReader @Clwojick

RadicalReader I love the movie Miss Penagine‘s Home for Peculiar Children so well done haven‘t read the book yet. I loved both the book and movie Bird Box too 1mo
Clwojick I normally don‘t read much paranormal stuff, but I enjoyed watching Birdbox, and Annihilation, so I‘m considering reading them as well. I ♥️ the book and the movie version of The Help, and I own Miss Penagines so I was thinking that might make it into my week 1 TBR. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Thanks for posting your recommendations 📚📚 1mo

A bildungsroman, that tells the story of George Washington ("Wash") Black who was born into slavery on Faith Plantation (a sugar plantation) in Barbados. It's a story full of interesting adventures and twists that takes readers from Barbados to Virginia, Nova Scotia, London, Amsterdam and Morocco. Quite an enjoyable read!

RadicalReader @thereadingowlvina I love thriller horror books and luckily also enjoy the wonderful horror thriller movies that go along with thanks to my mom the first horror films I‘d seen were The Fly ( with the handsome Jeff Goldblum) and Pet Sematary ( the 1989 version which had its 30 year anniversary a few days ago. And with the new Remake of Pet Sematary the whole crew was watching the original on set) 1mo

"My own silence began in 1955. It may be a familiar story to you. My childhood was spent in St. Anne's Residential School, which has garnered its own tragic reputation in the national media."

A heartbreaking and harrowing read! A necessary reading for everyone!
