        I'm thrilled to (finally, sorry for the delay!) announce the January giveaway, with a Sherlock Holmes theme! Supporters can win a beautiful little hardback edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as well as a stylish a5 print by www.thestorygift.co.uk/, featuring some witty advice from the great detective.     As always, if you support on patreon or if you supported before patreon (and did so less than twelve months ago), you'll be entered into the giveaway automatically. If you're not a supporter but want to take part, you can support for this month here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   The winner will be selected at random on January 31st. Good luck!

Hi all!

I'm new to the forum so I apologise if I'm duplicating an old post.


I'm looking for recommendations for really REALLY scary horror novels. You know, the kind of stories that give you heart palpitations as you're reading them. Ones that really play on your mind so that you can't sleep, or have to have the light on for a while after reading them.


Preferably ghost stories but will take anything really. I've previously read books like Woman in Black, The Shining, IT, and also stories that feature haunted asylums. I'm good with gore and stuff but I just fancy a really good scare Haha!


Any author is fine, well known or not. In fact I love discovering and supporting new and upcoming authors. 


Looking forward to hearing your suggestions!


Thanks in advance!

Dark Matter by Michelle Paver is one of the creepiest books I have read. What about The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson? That one has received a lot of attention, what with the recent Netflix series.
