Friday Friyay: 'Weep, Woman, Weep' by Maria DeBlasie
Today I'm sharing from one of the books I intended to read for spooky October but now it's the 29th and work has completely taken over this month for me. But I am really hoping to get to this one this weekend, so fingers crossed! Join me for Weep, Woman, Weep by Maria DeBlasie!
Book Beginnings is at home on Rose City Reader, hosted by Gilion Dumas, and Friday 56 at Freda's Voice, hosted by Freda. I'll also be joining the Book Blog Hop, hosted by Billy over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer.
'I am built for tears.Well this hits all the spots I could possible ask for in a Gothic read! Drama, tears, blood, sorrows, family history, legacy, upcoming misery!
It's in my blood. The women in my family didn't know how to have a life without sorrows. If they couldn't find any, they made them.' 1%
'I nodded. If it was one thing I understood, it was the drive to plant things and make your home on a piece of land that spoke to you.' 56%
Very much adore this as well! I'm honestly low-key terrible at keeping plants alive but that is because it takes me a while for them to become part of my space, which is mostly countless books and one cat. Once they're a part of it, of my home, however, I do feel rather attached to them!
This week's question was suggested by our host Billy from Coffee Addicted Writer:
Have you ever read a book on Halloween? If so, what was the title?
I initially wondered how to interpret this question! Do you mean reading a book on Halloween as in on the date? Absolutely! While I love a fun Halloween party, even if I'm horrible at dress up, I do love curling up with a book either earlier in the day or while skipping a party whose dresscode/costume request was above my paygrade. Do I remember the titles... not really. Oops.
Another way I thought about this question was whether I had ever read a book on Halloween, as in, about Halloween itself. The answer to that is no, but I would love to because the whole Hallow's Eve, pagan tradition, day where the veil between the living and dead is at its thinnest, the whole of that is fascinating to me. SO if anyone else interpreted the question this way, I hope to pick up some recommendations!
Happy Halloween everyone!
