Happy Friday, all– and happy October!
To try to make it feel more like October, I started this week with one of the books on my Halloween list: Carol Goodman’s The Bones of the Story, in which the alums of a writing program return to their upstate college and find themselves, snowbound, being murdered one by in the same manner as the ghost stories they wrote in college. This falls into the genre of I Know What You Did In College/ Locked House Mystery.
After that, I tried a ghost story author I’ve been meaning to read, and decided her books were not for me, but was annoyed enough with the whole thing that I had to revert to Lord Peter Wimsey to soothe myself. (Unnatural Death, this time, with a possibility of continuing on to Murder Must Advertise if I’m continuing to feel Wimsical.)
What have you been reading this week?
And does anyone have any good Simone St. James/Barbara Michaels-esque ghost stories to recommend? Witchy rom-coms along the lines of The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches would also be welcome….
