Made a second trip to the library this week and came home with another load.
From the library itself: The Woman in Black by Susan Hill. I put this in my hold requests back in January, I think, and for some reason it was put in my "In Progress" file and then taken out again--where it sat for all this time. I ordered it up for my Gothic Reading Challenge. I've seen the play (put on locally), but have never read the book. According to the book flap: "The Woman in Black is both a brilliant exercise in atmosphere and controlled horror and a delicious spine-tingler--proof positive that that neglected genre, the ghost story, isn't dead after all."
And a huge coup at the library used/donated bookstore....Somebody had just donated a whole stack of Ruth Rendell novels. Nearly all on my TBR list. I snatched up every one I "needed." They are:
A Sleeping Life
The Babes in the Woods
Shake Hands Forever
Not in the Flesh
No More Dying Then
Murder Being Once Done
I don't know when I'll get to the Rendells--I've got a boatload of reading to do for various challenges. But they'll be there when I'm ready.
