Halloween Reads: Wednesday Addams Edition

Friday, 6 October 2017
Wednesday Addams is my personal icon. I love that girl. She just gets me to be honest. Also we both wear a lot of black.

So in honour of my icon and life goals, here are some books I'm sure Wednesday herself would love!

1) Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Summary: Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord's daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.

Against her stern father's wishes and society's expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle's laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.

Why Would Wednesday Love It: Wednesday, our little possibly homicidal princess of Halloween would love a girl who tries to solve the case of the infamous serial killer. Wednesday would also probably do the same thing if she was the protagonist of the book.

2) Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu 

Summary: Moxie girls fight back!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her small-town Texas high school that thinks the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes and hallway harassment. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv’s mom was a punk rock Riot Grrrl in the ’90s, so now Viv takes a page from her mother’s past and creates a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She’s just blowing off steam, but other girls respond. Pretty soon Viv is forging friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, and she realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.

Why Would Wednesday Love It: So this is not a Halloween themed book, but I'm sure Wednesday would be all over a feminist revolution. Especially if it pisses people off.

3) The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin 

Summary: Mara Dyer believes life can't get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.

It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed.

There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.

She's wrong.

Why Would Wednesday Love It: This book is so messed up just like Wednesday. She'd probably also want to read the new Noah Shaw book too.

Yay for Halloween, yay for October, and yay for fall because it's so nice outside right now. More Halloween posts coming soon!
