I need to read The Ghost Line ASAP!!
Do it and let us know what you think of it!
I agree about animal cruelty and animal deaths in books. I can’t handle it. I loved The Troop but that scene with the turtle..😢 It just would not end. It was torture.
Yes the part with the turtle was terrible! =O
Hi there! I’m currently catching up on your podcast and am loving it. You’ve added a lot of books to my TBR list ❤
I like recommending Shirley Jackson as a beginner horror read, her stuff is creepy but not terrifying.
Just wanted to give you a heads up that in the show notes on episodes 2, 4 & 5, this blog address is spelled wrong and doesn't work as a link.
Thanks for the heads up — we’ll get that fixed up!
Oooh Shirley Jackson is such a good author for horror newbies! I’m surprised we didn’t talk about her books in that episode.
