Moonlight Reader

Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

Currently reading

Gothic reads!

The Haunting of Hill House - Shirley Jackson, Laura Miller The Murders in the Rue Morgue: The Dupin Tales - Edgar Allan Poe, Matthew Pearl The House on the Strand - Daphne du Maurier Nine Coaches Waiting (Rediscovered Classics) - Sandra Brown, Mary Stewart The Little Stranger - Sarah Waters

Fall is a great time to read gothic. Shirley Jackson, Edgar Allen Poe, and more modern authors like du Maurier or Victoria Holt. Who doesn't love a good gothic ghost story, right?
