I’m linking at the bottom to my traditional TTT Halloween post, but meanwhile I’ve been collecting a few creepy-sounding books from blog posts I’ve read laterly to add to Halloween! There’s still time to download and read at least one of these this week!
Two Ghostly Journeys
Blogger Covered in Flour brought this one to my attention–she read it in one sitting. Please be nice and click the link and read her review, ok? Here’s the blurb from Amazon:
A hauntingly beautiful diptych of works inspired by Robert Macfarlane’s travels with celebrated collaborators to two eerie corners of England.
In Holloway, …writer Dan Richards travel to Dorset,…to explore a famed “hollowed way”―a path used by walkers and riders for so many centuries that it has become worn far down into the soft golden bedrock of the region. In Ness,… Macfarlane and Donwood create a modern myth about Orford Ness, the ten-mile-long shingle spit that lies off the coast of East Anglia, which the British government used for decades to conduct secret weapons tests.

The Persephone Victorian Gothic!
I LOVE Persephone Books, now in Bath instead of London (that’s London, UK, not London, Ohio!). This novella–under 100 pages, is not only perfect for Novellas in November, but would scare the Beejeebers out of me. Radhika’s Reading Retreat posted a superb review of it that you must click on and read! Here’s the gist: “a young married woman who lies down on a chaise-longue and wakes to find herself imprisoned in the body of her alter ego ninety years before. ” (From the Persephone website).
The Victorian Chaise-Lounge by Margarita Laski (whom I constantly mix-up with Margarita Liberaki)
(Does anyone else keep a list of the Persephone Books they’ve read? Is it just me?)
Kristin’s Spooky Books Post and Video
Kristin Kraves Books did a SUPER post and vlog on spooky books–the three above are all brand new! Most of these would give me nightmares, but I know many readers love the thrill of a scary book!
Fall TBR: Give Me All the Fantasy and Spooky Books by Kristin if you want to read the post after or instead of watching her video. Both are good.
