The Little Stranger & The Graveyard Book Read Along

 I finished The Little Stranger about a week ago, and now it's time to start the second read along for the RIP Challenge, The Graveyard Book.  I picked up my audio copy from the library and will start it tomorrow in the car.  I'm excited, I've been wanting to read this book for a long time now.  I adore Coraline, so I think I will enjoy this as well.

Now for  The Little Stranger, I will say I enjoyed the book.  It isn't something I'd typically read, but I enjoyed House on Haunted Hill and thought they would be similar.  It was a very slow build up book, but it wasn't slow reading if that makes any sense, lol.  I had mixed feelings over Dr. Faraday.  At some points I liked him, others I didn't get a good feeling for him.  I don't want to give any spoilers, the book was pretty good.  Had me thinking, I enjoy books like that.  Sarah Waters is a great writer.  I'm not big on historical pieces, but I enjoyed getting the feel of post WWII in Britain. I wouldn't say the book is scary in way at all though, I'm still a bit surprised when I read reviews that mention it being scary.

As I write this, I'm watching 666 Park Avenue, talk about a fitting show for this time of year.  Super creepy, highly recommend!  I hope this is a show that lasts, now we just need American Horror to start up.
