Book Recommendations #1

Today, I bring you two book recommendations. I read these books not too long ago, and I loved them! If you decide to read them, I hope you love them as much as I did.

After a traumatic experience with her graduate school professor, Anne Fleming disposes of all her possessions, boards a plane, and plans to check out of life. But a chance meeting on an international flight leads her to Wildfell, a gothic mansion north of London. At first glance, Wildfell seems like the perfect place to hide out, and Anne is intrigued by its strange atmosphere and history of disappearances and deaths. But echoing voices, ghostly mists, a mute girl with a sketchbook full of murders, and a possessive landlady force her to confront her deepest fears. 

Anne's budding romance with gorgeous Irish actor Bain Tierney holds her to the house. But when Wildfell tenants begin disappearing and dying, Anne must decide if she trusts Bain. Is anyone in the house who they claim to be? Or are there are other forces at work inside Wildfell? And will they ever let her leave?


If you're looking for a creepy gothic horror novel, London Clarke's Wildfell is something you need to pick up and read! This one was a real page turner, and I found myself entranced at all times. I do love horror stories involving old houses. If you're looking for a book with a good amount of horror, suspense, paranormal elements, and some romance, Wildfell by London Clarke is the book for you!


In this asylum, your mind plays tricks on you all the time…

Delia’s new house isn’t just a house. Long ago, it was the Piven Institute for the Care and Correction of Troubled Females—an insane asylum nicknamed “Hysteria Hall.” However, many of the inmates were not insane, just defiant and strong willed. Kind of like Delia herself.

But the house still wants to keep “troubled” girls locked away. So, in the most horrifying way, Delia gets trapped.

And that’s when she learns that the house is also haunted.

Ghost girls wander the halls in their old-fashioned nightgowns. A handsome ghost boy named Theo roams the grounds. Delia finds that all the spirits are unsettled and full of dark secrets. The house, as well, harbors shocking truths within its walls—truths that only Delia can uncover, and that may set her free.

But she’ll need to act quickly, before the house’s power overtakes everything she loves.

From master of suspense Katie Alender comes a riveting tale of twisted memories and betrayals, and the meaning of madness.


I admit that I'm not into YA (young adult) reading as much as I once was. In fact, I don't really read YA anymore. However, after reading the Bad Girls Don't Die series by Katie Alender (be sure to check that series out) a few years back, I became a fan of hers. When I found this book that she wrote, I knew I had to read it!

This was such a fast paced novel for me. The book never had a dull moment, and I found myself hanging on every word to find out what would happen next. The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall has plenty of ghosts which I loved! It's the right mix of paranormal, suspense, and mystery! This is definitely a novel you can't miss!
