It is time for thrillers, horror, paranormal, and mystery reads and I have quite the lineup for this season. Have I finished my Summer Reading List? Not quite, but I am definitely close. Not like last year when I wasn’t even close to completing it. But it is my favorite time of year. Now if the weather could drop 20-30 degrees so I can drink hot tea and pile on the blankets, that would be great!
Let me start with all my Advanced Reader Copies through NetGalley:
1) The Death of Jane Lawrence by Caitlin Starling ~ a gothic horror that has Crimson Peak vibes! Releasing October 19th!
2) A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow ~ a Sleeping Beauty retelling releasing October 5th!
3) The Hidden by Melanie Golding ~ who always does a wonderful job at meshing thriller and horror, releasing November 9th
4) The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward releasing September 28th has the Haunting of Hill House vibes!
5) The Unheard by Nicci French releasing October 26th is a thriller/mystery!
6) The Lighthouse Witches by CJ Cook ~ this is more of a fantasy with gothic elements releasing on October 5th
7) City of Time and Magic by Paula Brackston releasing November 16th but is also the Found Things book 4 and probably one of my most anticipated books of this year!
8) These Silent Woods by Kimi Cunningham Grant releases on October 26th is a mystery/thriller taking place in the Appalachian Mountains
9) Horseman by Christina Henry is releasing September 28th and is a Sleepy Hollow retellings!
10) Ghost Sightings by Brian Innes has already released but I am saving it for Halloween!
11) Hyde by Craig Russell is a supernatural story with quite a few literary character appearances, releasing October 12th
