greadsbooks we answer a question and sum up our week on the blog.
Spooktacular Reads: Which books do you consider festive Halloween reads? Which stories have chilled you to the bone?
OK so.. One book does come to mind as a great Halloween read but it wasn't bone chilling lol.
I really did enjoy this book it was full of lyrical quotes and spells witches and mystery.
Halloween really would be the perfect time to read it! and I think many who have read it will agree with me :)
Description from Amazon
The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten
If the wind calls at night, you must not
listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for
And there are no strangers in the town of
These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her
But when an actual stranger—a boy who seems to fade like
smoke—appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one
of these sayings is no longer true.
The next night, the children of Near
start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under
suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells
her she can trust him.
As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does
Lexi’s need to know—about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime
story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about
the history of this nameless boy.
Part fairy tale, part love story,
Victoria Schwab’s debut novel is entirely original yet achingly familiar: a song
you heard long ago, a whisper carried by the wind, and a dream you won’t soon
