What a spooktacular month October was….I embarked on my mission to read only spooky or scary books in honour of Halloween.
My mission was to find something that scared the pants off me. Did I find it?
Read in October:
Classic Victorian and Edwardian Ghost Stories by Various – review coming shortly
Dracula by Bram Stoker – review coming shortly
Books reviewed (but not read) as part of the Dare you read it? series:
So what are my spooky recommendations?
Disappointingly, I didn’t find any book that scared the wits out of me, which really surprised me as I am an absolute wimp when it comes to scary films. That said, I really enjoyed every single book I read this month and although I didn’t find anything to freak me out, some of the books were really well written with regards to creating errie atmosphere and here are my top two:
My indulgent November
And now on to this month…
I am planning a month of pure indulgent reading. Whatever I fancy: no rules, no must-reads, no specific genres, authors, publishers……nada!
I will read what I want when I want – bliss! I already have a few books in mind, but I may change my mind on a whim:
On my possible list are:
The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths
Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
Twisted Wing by Ruth Newman
A Mary Higgins Clark (dunno which one)
The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton
Changeless by Gail Carriger
Or maybe not…..
