Hello fellow reader, let me tell you something about myself. I am an easy sell for some good cover art. I was immediately drawn to Grady Hendrix’s book My Best Friend’s Exorcism because the cover art is most excellent.

Oops! We read an open-ended dystopian novel that leaves a TON of things open to interpretation, and it turns out... It’s the first in a trilogy.
Overall, First Grave on the Right was a fun read if you want some light laughs and don’t want to think very hard.
It’s National Buy a Musical Instrument Day! We’re both choir nerds (we play the vocal chords), so we thought it’d be fun to talk about some books that inspire musicality! These books aren’t necessarily centered around music, but they all incorporate some sort of instrument into the plot.
We both loved Lathe of Heaven, and definitely recommend it. It’s a pretty short read that you can probably finish in an afternoon, and there are tons of amazing details we didn’t even get to discuss (ALIENS!).
