I love short stories and I’ve actually never read one that was paranormal based, so I’m excited to start this! I don’t know many of the authors, but I’ve heard a lot of great things about this one and seeing as though I’ve been procrastinating with reading, short stories will be perfect!
From Strand Bookstore:
Hm… okay this was actually a book I got last week but forgot to add it to my IMM. I went through a Jack the Ripper faze when I was younger so I loved the concept of this! Oh and the cover is so nice! It has an opal effect to it which is so unique!
Okay, I swear my books this week are not all dark! I think I first heard about this when a lot of you were getting this as ARCs and I loved the cover! I’ve also never read a steampunk novel, but I’ve always loved the style/look of it all. If you’ve got some must-read steampunk, let me know!
I don’t know why I’ve been holding off on this one, but it was near Dearly, Departed and I was already picking up a lot that I just thought “what the heck.”
I like the historical aspects of it which, in my opinion, usually makes the story all the more fun and intriguing.
Squee! I love the concept of this and I don’t know what took me so damn long to get it! And how fitting that the story begins at Strand (where I bought this)!
I probably won’t start this until December so it coincides with the story, but I can’t wait to start it!
Honestly, I was drawn to the cover and upon skimming through the mostly positive reviews of this little-known book, I was intrigued and I was so happy to find it at Strand!
I first saw this at BN, but for $22 I declined since I knew nothing about it other than the concept of it being a collective narrative of 24 characters while on the Titanic. Luckily, Strand is awesome with it’s half off prices!
So after reading up on it, I was so fascinated by this and it’s multiple formats- letters, verse, undertaker’s notes and so on. An appropriate take on the matter and with the 100th anniversary of its fateful journey coming up, I’m sure it’ll become a bigger hit as the time draws near.
