I didn’t forget about Banned Book week but because I’ve been a bit behind on blogging I wasn’t necessarily going to do a post on it but how can I not mention it after I saw this great creation on my recent library visit? A burning tree of banned books! I had to stop and take a picture and glad that when I did so, I noticed that other patrons stopped to look at the tree as well. Here’s the list of the Banned & Challenged Books of 2017.
Anyway, I had stayed away from the library for a couple of months but I was look for some additional books to supplement my choices for the R.I.P. challenge and found these other titles which I think will be great.
I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid. A man and his girlfriend are on their way to a secluded farm. This sounds creepy doesn’t it? And, probably nothing good will come of this beginning.
The Doll-Master and Other Tales of Terror by Joyce Carol Oates. This is a collection of short stories which also includes a chilling biblio-mystery. This sounds good doesn’t it?
The Chalk Pit by Elly Griffiths. I’m a huge fan of this series and honestly, this is the book I want to start with now but I need to focus on the book for book group before I start with this one. Well, maybe…. we’ll see what I do this weekend.
Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt. This promises to be a good scary tale. A picturesque town is haunted by the Black Rock Witch who walks the streets at night . Oh my gosh, I think I need the lights on for this one.
What do you think? Have you read any of these?
