      Late Autumn Supporter Giveaway   11/27/2020

      I know that winter is well on the way, but I'm sneaking the autumn giveaway in here, right at the end of the season...     I thought this giveaway seemed particularly appropriate for this year: Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books by Cathy Rentzenbrink.  I'm sure some of you will have heard of this book. It came out in September and has had brilliant reviews. It's been described as a love letter to reading and I think all of us have truly appreciated 'the comfort and joy of books' this year.  It is also a really beautiful hardback. Please excuse my picture-taking skills, it's really hard to get a good picture of something that's shiny!   As always, patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the draw. If you're not a supporter but you'd like to join our patreon you can do so here:  bookclubforum.co.uk is creating a book community | Patreon

Horror Recommendations

Recommended Posts

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.
