It’s April 1st, a quarter of the way through 2020 already, and that means it’s time for an update on Phantom reading and viewing adventures. I hope you and yours are staying well in the midst of the pandemic situation, and maybe having time for some extra reading. And remember – social isolation may be hard, but donning a mask and crashing chandeliers is never the answer!
I kicked off my Phantom exploration for the year with a reread of the original story, Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera. This was my…third? fourth? time reading the book, and I enjoyed it immensely–and had lots of thoughts about the unreliability of the narration.
Read my written review of Leroux’s Phantom.
Watch my video review of Leroux’s Phantom.
If you’d like a refresher on the challenge, check out the launch post here. And please share about your Phantom adventures so far in 2020 in a comment below. I look forward to seeing what you’ve been exploring this year.
Shameless self-promotion: As a further update on my own retelling of the Phantom, The Guardian of the Opera: Nocturne will be out June 5th, and the cover reveal is this Friday, April 3rd. Drop by Friday and see the awesome cover I can’t wait to share!

I’m not doing the challenge, but I AM looking forward to seeing your cover reveal this Friday – and reading your story about the Phantom.
