Those fit the Halloween theme.

#9 = I couldn't bring myself to read that.


Now....new thread for next Tuesday?
Her whole life was a tragedy and that book makes me ugly cry. Ugh, I can't stand the men in that book. Sometimes I think Angel was even worse than Alec.

Helter Skelter is a really good book. And it's fascinating on a psychological / sociological level.

November 2: Books I Would Hand to Someone Who Claims to Not Like Reading


Our next subject to ponder....

I think it would depend on their taste.

True. Because if one person thinks horror books are great and the other person doesn't, the second person isn't going to be inspired to read.

The only book I can think of right now is Harry Potter because that inspired me to shut off the internet at night and it got lots of kids to read.

Without goodreads I'd have difficulty putting lists together.

Rappaccini's Daughter is not one I thought of but is a good one.

The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen is so sad.


Helter Skelter is a real horror story.

Poison is involved, so that's plenty creepy

Soooooooo sad

Especially when thinking how unapologetic they were

I don't remember Little Match Girl. If it's that sad, maybe I don't want to remember.
