It’s (somehow) July 1st, meaning we are halfway through 2020 already! It has been a strange and unusual several months, and I hope you all are staying safe and well. If you’ve been escaping from the weirdness of the present moment by visiting below the Opera Garnier, this post is for you! At the halfway point of the year, it’s time to share about our Phantom of the Opera reading and viewing so far.
I started the year off with rereading Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera. In the last few months, my Phantom focus has shifted to getting my own retelling out. I published Nocturne (Guardian of the Opera Book 1) on June 5th, which was of course very exciting! I’ve also recently reread Book 2 (which will be out in September!) and am currently midway through Book 3.
I’ve posted quite a few videos on Phantom topics, including a review of the 2004 Phantom of the Opera movie, starring Gerard Butler. Check out my Phantom videos here.
Lately I also bought a Phantom-themed coloring book, and have been having a lot of fun with that. Here’s a few photos, just because.
That covers my recent Phantom adventures – now I want to hear about yours! If you’d like a refresher on the challenge, check out the launch post here. And please share in a comment below. I look forward to seeing what you’ve been exploring this year!
