Looking for a quick read to get you in the mood for Halloween? Then check out this phenomenal graphic novel with 5 terrifying stories. Lingeringly creepy with impressive artwork and a startling economy of words.

Jenna is on page 180 of 466 of Gone Girl: I had never encountered an unreliable narrator before and who knew that could be so fun? Well, not fun, Nick is a slimeball. It amused me when he divulges important information as it were nothing. Whoopsie!

Joseph Brodsky
“The surest defense against Evil is extreme individualism, originality of thinking, whimsicality, even—if you will—eccentricity.”
Joseph Brodsky

Christina Rossetti
“For there is no friend like a sister
In calm or stormy weather;
To cheer one on the tedious way,
To fetch one if one goes astray,
To lift one if one totters down,
To strengthen whilst one stands”
Christina Rossetti, Goblin Market and Other Poems

Alan Bennett
“What she was finding also was how one book led to another, doors kept opening wherever she turned and the days weren't long enough for the reading she wanted to do.”
