What’s the best book you’ve read recently?
(Tell me you didn’t see this one coming?)

Oh, I do see this one coming! :-P

I had read a few good books over the months but instead of listing them here, I decided to name the best book I read this month - The Ghost Writer by John Harwood.

I loved the gothic atmosphere; I find it especially creepy reading the book at night but that is just me. I loved it that there are ghost stories within the story and personally I feel they deserve their full story. But most of all, I love the suspense and I think the writing style is simply marvellous! Oh, can you tell that I'm gushing now?

    Ack! I keep reading great reviews of this book but I can NOT bring myself to red t even in a well lit crowded place. I am a giant wimp when it comes to scary movies or books!
