Heads-up to readers in YVR tonight: Sam Wiebe of the brilliant Vancouver noir mysteries #invisibledead and #cutyoudown has a book launch tonight for the fittingly named #vancouvernoir anthology (as editor). Check them out at Shebeen in Gastown tonight! #crimenoir #vancouverreads #samwiebe #readcanadian #tooreal #crimefiction #bookstagram #booksandblades #booklaunch #livereading #authorreading #readlocal #booksandblades #kaiespace
A surprisingly accessible fictional account of a dark period in Russian history. The Zoo uses a child's perspective to engage really awful circumstances (and people) with a heavy dose of absurdist humor. Dark but not crushingly so, and excellent, creative literary treatment. #christopherwilson #thezoo #russianhistory #modernlit #bookstagram #badhistory #darklit #bookaholic #kaiespace

Who else is totally grossed out by the stinky, cobwebby insides of pumpkins? I absolutely refuse to carve them. Instead, for your viewing pleasure, enjoy the eerie return of the turkin. ๐Ÿ˜‚

#janeslayre similarly is more on the enjoyable weird side of horror. It's literally Jane Eyre with monster-hunting, and it makes for a weirdly satisfying read. Downtrodden but plucky orphans staking vampires and decapitating zombies is gold. The restraint of the language used adds a comic element. And the tag line : "Reader, I buried him." So. Good. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ”ฅ
.
Anyways. Happy Halloween to those of you celebrating, and happy hide-inside-with-the-lights-off day to everyone else!

#brujaborn is the first in a wonderfully disturbing series by #zoraidacordova about Latina magic users (#witchy) in Brooklyn. Plenty of betrayal, monsters, family-related angst and adolescent misery with a unique take on a #portalfantasy -- plus drinks @longtabledistillery ftw ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ‰

SUPER excited to announce that #blindtheeyes is now available in gorgeous HARDCOVER edition!! ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŽ‰โœจ

Readers are calling it "...a vivid dreamscape masterpiece." (*Blushes @adventurenlit * ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–) & "The adventure, mystery, and on-the-edge-of-your-seat anxiety just made this book shine for me." (Thanks Kassi H. ! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–)
.
I should really get around to doing a comparison post one of these days, but basically the HC editions have a more spacious interior design and new back cover and flap text over an expanded version of @reginawamba 's gorgeous cover design. The paperbacks are more tightly formatted to make them as affordable as possible for readers. (& of course, ebooks are the best deal of all!) Compare versions at https://amazon.com/gp/product/B07CSHPBGH or order from your favourite indie bookstore ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘

#howlsmovingcastle fans, did you know she actually wrote three books with those characters? Um, #deepsecret isn't one of them, but you should read them too! #bestfantasy #yafantasy #bookstagram #booksandplants #bookaholic #kaiespace
Here's a rare YA #canlit read! It really rides the line between YA, NA, and adult lit, plus contemporary/fantasy. Totally captures the (rough) experience of living in rural, small-town Canada. These are the sorts of places you drive through on a road trip and never stop. Kids growing up too soon and trying to carry crap that the adults in their lives should have sheltered them from. Terrible parents who probably wanted to do better, but are too messed up by their own pasts to parent. Plus, some eerie supernatural shenanigans based on #firstnationsmythology crossed with bad-dad angst. It's gloriously messed up. Perfect for those who appreciate complexity and a raw edge to their YA reads. Also: vicious paranormal beings in the vein of bloodthirsty fae with an indigenous twist. ๐Ÿ˜ฑโœจ
I'm starting the sequel this week!

One for the #phantomoftheopera fans in the room! Think #dystopian China of the last century with  near-West invaders, forbidden love, stubborn girls, and a steampunk edge. Haunting, disturbing, and tense reads by #sarahfine
