RA for your Friday 10/25/19


Don't know what you're going to be for Halloween yet? Why not consult the all-knowing and all-helpful bookosphere! According to Electric Lit's Plan Your Literary Costume Chart, I should be a Goth Eyes of Dr. TJ Eckleburg. Liquid eyeliner, here I come!

In creepy corner, we've got 13 spooky audiobooks from Paste, 11 books about haunted woods from Bustle, and Becky's Under the Radar Modern Horror Classics from the RA for All blog.

In related news, Book Riot has some authors for Stephen King fans to check out, Barnes and Noble ranks Stephen King's 10 scariest stories, and Stephen King himself has some recommendations for you. This has been your Stephen King Minute.

The November Library Reads list is out! Go ahead and print one out for yer corkboard.

Did someone say winter? I sure didn't, but Vogue did, with their list of 22 upcoming books to read during the coming season.

The Kirkus prize winners have been announced, Booklist is putting a spotlight on the arts, and the 5 Minute Librarian blog takes on Black Friday as a display idea.

Finally, #FridayReads: I've gone down a bit of a YouTube rabbit hole of late, because I so enjoy Caitlin Doughty's Ask a Mortician videos. While I'm waiting for her third book Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? to arrive, I'm reading Number One Chinese Restaurant by Lillian Li and listening to Ali Wong's Dear Girls. Happy reading/listening/YouTubing!
