Day 5 Books In The Freezer Readathon!

It is day 5 of the Books in The Freezer readathon. 5 challenges, 1 down, 1 halfway down.

 

I have read Frankenstein, the original 1818 text by Mary Shelly. Third time reading it. Still a 4 star rating. I have feelings, but I can't get a proper review down for this book. I will say, I am more on the "Monster's" side, though of course I don't agree some of the stuff he did, part of me can understand why he did those things, though.

I am 50% into The Woman in Black by Susan Hill

9825955

[I usually hate movie covers, and it is weird to have "Harry Potter's" face plastered on the cover, but I kinda like this cover.]

 

Next book on the agenda is Ordinary Souls by J.S. Bailey.

I'm really excited about the idea of reading spooky books during October. I say I love horror books, but my Goodreads would suggest otherwise because it is probably the genre I read the least. I want to broaden my horizons and read more horror and other books I don't automatically reach for.

 

Not related to this readathon, but my copy of Paperbacks from Hell is in at Barnes and Noble. I'm excited to buy it!

[How many books will this book make me put on my TBR?]

Reading progress update: I've read 75 out of 151 pages.
Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus (The 1818 Version) - Mary Wollstonecraft; Macdonald, D. L.; Scherf, Kathleen (editor) Shelley

The Books In The Freezer Readathon is going decently, I suppose. I'm still on the first book, but I have until the 15th to read my picks! (All of which are smaller books.)

 

Halfway done with Frankenstein. I am reading the $1 1818 Kindle version (the original text) and listening to the free public domain audiobook from Librivox at the same time. (Posted on Youtube) That helps me focus on classics. I have dyslexia, so sometimes my mind trips up on the old-fashioned language in classics.

 

The reason I looked for a copy of the recording on YouTube is that I like to speed up the audio to match how fast my brain works. (If that makes sense)
