Dear Readers,

It is October! Instead of drinking PSLs and eating Pumpkin Pie (not out of Pumpkin Protest but because of dairy intolerance), I will be reading all kinds of spooky, crime, suspense, and mystery novels. (Use Oxford commas, friends)

A tentative, but likely, list includes the following titles:
1) The Scapegoat by Daphne du Maurier
2) In the Woods by Tana French
3) Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie
4) Wicked by Gregory McGuire
5) Dracula by Bram Stoker

I will include reviews and analyses of these books as I read.


  1. Of this list, I’ve only read Dracula — and I very much enjoyed it. A neat way of telling a story, if I remember correctly, through letters and maybe journal articles.

    • I’ve perused pages of Dracula before, but when I was (way) younger I found the style unappealing. I hope this time I can really get into it. But, I’m also really excited about the Agatha Christie selection. I’m trying to work my way through the Poirot tales. I finished Mysterious Affair at Styles earlier this year, and I thought I was so clever (like Hastings) until Poirot explained what really happened. I love being schooled by a book. 😛
