Frankenstein and #FiremanAlong

Fireman Readalong

First look at this button! It is very dramatic. Heather from Capricious Reader created it.

What is the Fireman Readalong? A bunch of people reading The Fireman by Joe Hill in July hosted by Care and co-hosted by Heather. It's a 768 page book. So, it might require some encouragement. I'm on the wait list for the book and I think I'll be getting it soon. Should be a good time! Join!

Do you know what today is? It is the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's 'waking dream' that inspired....FRANKENSTEIN!
I could not so easily get rid of my hideous phantom; still it haunted me. I must try to think of something else. I recurred to my ghost story - my tiresome, unlucky ghost story! Oh! If I could only contrive one which would frighten my reader as I myself had been frightened that night!
And then she did. I really need to read Frankenstein again. Mary Shelley you are amazing and so is this gif.

Great books for hard times. 


  1. I just ordered The Fireman at Indigo (12.49, free shipping) for my summer reading. It looks so good!

  2. I am really curious about The Fireman. I would love a chance to read it at some point and am definitely tempted to get it for the readalong!

  3. I would be TOTALLY DOWN for The Fireman readalong had I known about it before I started it. But I shall follow along with joy

  4. Did we read Frankenstein as part of the book club? I can no longer remember. I feel the need to read it too, although I do remember being bored by it.

    Enjoy The Fireman! You most definitely not be bored with that one. I wish I had waited to read it so that I could read along with everyone else!
