I am getting into the fall spirit. I have been drinking tons of tea, watching old nineties shows like Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark.
It was rainy and foggy this morning and I got super excited.
It has begun.
My only grievance this fall, is that I am once again living in a little nowhere town. That is a billion miles from a Starbucks, so no pumpkin spice lattes for me.
I am going to try to keep my next few posts in a fall theme. I thought I would recommend some creepy reads. I have only read one of these, but I they all seem to have a creepy elements.
Temptation (or rather the Solitary Tales)
Everyone needs to read this series. It's a creepy story told to the soundtrack of 80's music. It's marvelous. There is a hostile small town, cults, secret meetings, and underground tunnels. Oh, and these terrifying mannequin things. Can't really explain it, angst, faith, and questionable choices.
Basically, anything Alice and you have me. It's about the Red Queen so I am sure some heads will roll. Also happens to be the same author who wrote that creepy Pan retelling, I liked 'Wendy Darling' so I am excited.
This Savage Song
This one is about monsters and music, and I have read great reviews for it. Should be good!
Hunting Prince Dracula
The sequel to Stalking Jack the Ripper, which was really good. A little feministic and I figured out who Jack was in chapter two. Stoked for this one, hopefully we get more Thomas Cresswell also Dracula.
I am in the throes of writing my Sherlock retelling, so this one could be considered research practically. Also it is all about Moriarty so I am assuming some evil and murder will be happening.
Wake The Hollow
I read this last fall I think, I got it from Netgalley and it was surprisingly good. Intense, creepy and an ode to the original Sleepy Hollow.
So basically I will be doing a lot of this.
