BOOK NERD : Spooky Autumn Reads To Curl Up With This Fall

At the top of 2019, Phoebe Miller reached out with the idea to start a book club for the Hippie Witch community over on Patreon...

Which was the easiest YES ever, because Phoebe is awesome &... HELLO! BOOKS!

Now here we are, many-many fabulous reads into our journey together and Phoebe remains our reigning Book Club Queen.

We are currently reading Conjure Women by Afia Atakora...


I mean... just look at that cover. It's so beautiful, and it's got nothing on the heart-breaking beauty of the words inside.

 Conjure Women is not a long book, but it cuts deep. 

Haunted. Emotionally haunted. That's the way it makes you feel.

So- now we're all craving something fun to read next. 

With Halloween looming with promise on the horizon, Phoebe thought a spooky book would be fitting... spooky-fun... and of course she's right.

'Tis the season for spooky-fun books!

The problem was trying to narrow it down, as the spooky-fun options are aplenty.

Here are the choices we carefully whittled it down to...

The Spectral City by Leanna Renee Hieber : In turn-of-the century New York City, the police have an off-the-books spiritual go-to when it comes to solving puzzling corporeal crimes. 

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia : An isolated mansion. A chillingly charismatic aristocrat. And a brave socialite drawn to expose their treacherous secrets...

Lock Every Door by Riley Sager : No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan's most high-profile and mysterious buildings...

Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand : Three girl's stories come together on the island of Sawkill Rock, where gleaming horses graze in rolling pastures and cold waves crash against black cliffs. Where kids whisper the legend of an insidious monster at parties and around campfires. Where girls have been disappearing for decades, stolen away by a ravenous evil no one has dared to fight~ until now.
