All Hallow’s Read
30 October, 2012
Tomorrow is Hallowe’en aka All Hallow’s Eve and I hope y’all are planning something spookay! Since I’ve been on a loose quest to find a book that will scare the pants off me, I wanted to be a part of All Hallow’s Read. Do click on the link and see what the lovely Neil Gaiman has to say (just do it anyway since it’s Neil Gaiman.)
Bookmarks, a postcard, pumpkin chocolate, Hallowe’eny nail polish in black and orange and two books. And when I unwrapped the books, I found they were two titles I’ve been meaning to get but haven’t yet.
The Birds and Other Stories by Daphne du Maurier (old Daffers can’t do any wrong in my book) and The Greatcoat by Helen Dunmore. They certainly look creepy…
I’m still not sure who sent me my lovely parcel so do give me a shout so that I can thank you properly.
I sent Iris Joan Aiken’s The Wolves of Willoughby Chase, one of my favourite gothic tales from my childhood which sparked my interest in all things dark. Do also check out what titles we’ve been sending each other.
I’m planning to read The Greatcoat late into the night. What about you?
