Spooky reads are what it’s all about this week. Demi Marshall of Book People stopped by with the scares and talk of books. The first book we talked about was Girl With All The Gifts which is a post-apocalyptic novel that will soon have a movie adaptation.. Experimental Film is about a mother who was just fired from her job, and has a son recently diagnosed with autism. She looks to an experimental film class as an outlet where she begins seeing strange things. Next, The Beautiful Thing is a collection of short creepy stories. Welcome To Night Vale is based on a podcast. One main character has a shape-shifter son, and the other main character runs a pawn shop. The two go on a crazy adventure together. Lastly, we talked about a book for kids called The Thickety. This book is mature and recommended for kids 10 years and older. Book People is located on North Lamar. You can check them out online or call 512-472-5050.
