Iona Caldwell | 5 comments I might have to pick this up. Is it something that has to be finished by April? Like a monthly read?

No, it’s just a buddy read, go at your own pace. Someone will always be around to comment if you get behind 😊

Very first page- whoa! Hang on. These people need to read The Willows

I love that story. You can't go wrong with Blackwood.

I just reviewed The Willows.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
I think the idea for the willows was that the land was alive & those guys were trespassing where they shouldn’t. The land was trying to scare them off.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
I do love be some Blackwood. I have a really pretty illustrated anthology of his & Arthur Machen.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
I'm sure I said this when I bought the book, my favorite word is in the description! Phantasmagoric ❤️


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
Your welcome Lisa.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
I'm on chapter 7. Still good & has my interest. Do y'all believe in astral travel? I think it mentions this in the description so not spoiling anything. I think there is people that can do it but I'm not one of them.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
Chapter 7- I'm confused and shocked.

Think I astral travelled last night after my third glass of cab sav!


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
Lol! I hope it was to some place good.

Lisa | 484 comments I'm on Chapter 6, enjoying so far. I'm looking forward to being confused and shocked soon :)

Lisa | 484 comments Finished chapter 7. Shocked, check. Confused, check. 😉


Melanie | 1656 comments Oh booooo. I'm having such FOMO right now, I might have to put my other book on hold and get started on this.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
I'm at 86% I hope to finish this by Sunday at the latest.


Melanie | 1656 comments I'm at 26%. Babysitting for a friend tonight so hopefully I'll get some read then.

Lisa | 484 comments 42% here...


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
Ok I finished this. I gave it 3 stars. The haunting & connections were very interesting. I'd read and it was great but when I had to put the book down and pick it up again, I felt like it had lost some of its steam. I think this was more on me than anything else. I really liked (view spoiler)


Melanie | 1656 comments I'm up to chapter 12 and wondering how he's going to tie it all together.

I read The Strange Case at Misty Ridge last week after interacting with David Brian during The Waiting group read.
Much like Melanie, I honestly couldn't see how he was going to tie all the elements together, but agree with the points you raised in the spoiler tags, Latasha. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and found the astral travel stuff particularly fascinating.
Here's my review if anyone's interested.https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod

Yep. You 'n' me both Lisa.

Lisa | 484 comments Finished. I found the idea of (view spoiler) inventive and interesting. But there was too much going on here for me, a bit sloppily, and I never really felt immersed. Full review here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
Aww sorry it didn’t work for you Lisa.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
Melanie, do you still want to do the witching house sometime this month?


message 45: by Lisa (new) - rated it 2 stars

Lisa | 484 comments No worries, Latasha, I never regret reading a book. I'm happy for the Buddy Read and discussion.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
That’s how I feel too 😊

Actually, i just managed to get hold of the Malfi book at the library so am keen to do that one first as it will have to back in a couple of weeks. That OK?


Latasha (latasha513) | 10843 comments Mod
