The Witch Bottle~Tom Fletcher

Disturbing, intriguing, boundless, horrific, interesting, scary and gripping! What a story! What an author! The Witch bottle shows is Daniel, a milk man who carries grief and regret with him like the majority of us carry a face mask and hand gel. Having lost his baby brother at the tender age of five and hisContinue reading “The Witch Bottle~Tom Fletcher”

Lockdown~Peter May

What.A.Book! And such an appropriate read given the current climate in the world. Peter May first started to put together his ideas for a crime novel set amid Bird Flu/H5N1 in 2005. He researched it for many a significant period of time and eventually came up with Lockdown; a murder mystery and crime thriller setContinue reading “Lockdown~Peter May”

The Woman In Black~Susan Hill

Well what do I say? Where do I begin? I have literally just closed the pages of this book and have taken a complete U-Turn of my thoughts and opinions! This is the final read of the Read By Spooktober challenge over on Instagram and it was one epic ending! I picked up this bookContinue reading “The Woman In Black~Susan Hill”

The Shadow Friend~Alex North

This was the second read for Read By Spooktober over on Instagram and The Shadow Friend is Alex North’s second book (The Whisper Man being his first nearly twelve months ago-two books in less than a year? Must be an avid writer!) and is the first of his titles I have read. After feeling somewhatContinue reading “The Shadow Friend~Alex North”

The Haunting of Hill House~Shirley Jackson

I’m not sure where to start with this one! Back in the 90’s I watched the film The Haunting (with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Owen Wilson) and at the time it really spooked me (I was barely a teenager and afraid of my own shadow so dumb move watching it really!) then many years later, NetflixContinue reading “The Haunting of Hill House~Shirley Jackson”

Pet Semetary~Stephen King

As part of the Read By Spooktober hashtag that’s going around Instagram among the book lovers and horror fans, Pet Sematary is the first of three spooky reads for the month of October. Having never seen either the original film or remake, I quite excited to read the novel, especially as Stephen King has inspiredContinue reading “Pet Semetary~Stephen King”

Follow Me To Ground~Sue Rainsford

Do you ever finish a book and think “what have I just read?” Because that’s exactly the effect that Follow Me To Ground has had on me! While perusing Goodreads reviews, I noted that many reviews mentioned how spooky and unnerving the book was, but I’m wondering if I’ve missed something? Ada was not bornContinue reading “Follow Me To Ground~Sue Rainsford”

The Year of the Witching~Alexis Henderson

I first saw this book while scrolling through Instagram And came across a post by the author showing the UK and the US covers side by side, and then that was it-I was drawn in and hooked on both of the cover pictures and I needed to own this book and to read it. AtContinue reading “The Year of the Witching~Alexis Henderson”

The Binding~Bridget Collins

I think today I will start my review with a question-it feels appropriate somehow to me. If you could have memories of your choosing taken from you and kept in a book hidden for the rest of your life, would you? This book has got me thinking about what memories I’d want to “bind” andContinue reading “The Binding~Bridget Collins”
