Hello Aficionados! It's time to start thinking about what we'd like to read as a group in May. The theme for this month will be "GHOST HORROR"! Please nominate any book you'd like to read in this category that we haven't already read in the past 12 months.
Here is the link where you can find the books recently read: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

As always, authors may NOT nominate their own works.

Nominations with the most seconds, thirds, etc., will be more likely to make it onto the final poll.

Any book NOT fitting the theme will be be disqualified.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

***Unfortunately, THE MOURNING HOUSE, by Ronald Malfi, isn't available any longer. The publisher that originally released it closed down, and it hasn't been placed with a new one as of yet.*** (Great choice though, and I hope it becomes available again in the future!)

If you mean the one by Jean Brody, it seems to be unavailable as an eBook. (Only third party sellers)
If it's not a book that most members could easily have access to, we can't include it. Please feel free to nominate another one. :)
