While being a Hurricane Matthew evacuee, I made my husband take me to a bookstore. I’d been eyeing Ghostland for a while and I’m nearly finished.
Colin Dickey presents ghost stories in what I consider to be the most interesting way possible — as an indicator of that which a town is most obsessed with. He outlines the ghost story but the focus is really on the history behind the places that are considered haunted. He then connects that back to various aspects of the area and the people who live there.
I’m also reading The Guineveres by Sarah Domet. Domet is a dear friend and I basically squealed when I saw her reviewed in the NYT on Friday. Her book is delightful and I can wholeheartedly recommend it.
Next up is Arthur & Sherlock by Michael Sims, a nonfiction exploration of the early days of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle leading up to the creation of his most famous character.
