Happy Halloween

LittleStranger-412x232

Next up in Book Battle 2015 is a novel with more than 500 pages. In the spirit of October I decided to change my first choice and pick a spookier book. I found The Little Stranger on Pinterest under the top 50 scariest books. I adore scary stories, even if it means a night of restless sleep. The books I like the most are the unsettling ones. I’m not much of a slasher gore fan, but I do like psychological thrillers and paranormal novels. The Little Stranger fell perfectly in my category.

The back of the novel describes it as very similar to The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, which is just the kind of scary novel I like. The movie based on James’s work, The Innocents, remains one of the most disturbing movies I have ever seen.

The Little Stranger, like The Turn of the Screw, deals with the unknown paranormal realm and the people that try to make sense of it. I can’t wait to see what scares The Little Stranger has in store.

Stay tuned for the ghostly review. Happy reading!
