“Stacking The Shelves” is a bookish meme hosted over at Tynga’s Reviews. This meme is used to showcase the books that you have recently bought and will be adding to your shelves, physical or in eBook format. This can also include review copies, library books, or borrowed books from friends.
This week I will be posting the books I brought in-store. I brought three books in total and all are books that I have seen around Twitter and have eagerly been waiting to read!
The books I purchased are:
You will find Fellside somewhere on the edge of the Yorkshire moors. It is not the kind of place you’d want to end up, but it’s where Jess Moulson could be spending the rest of her life.
It’s a place where even the walls whisper. And one voice belongs to a little boy with a message for Jess. Fellside will be the death of you – if it doesn’t save you.
Welcome to Black Spring, a picturesque town with an ugly secret.
A 17th century woman with sewn-shut eyes and mouth walks its streets . . . enters its homes . . . watches its people when they sleep.
They call her the Black Rock Witch.
So accustomed to her presence, the townsfolk often forget what will happen if her eyes ever open. To protect themselves the Black Spring elders use high-tech surveillance to quarantine the town. Frustrated with the lockdown, the town’s teenagers decide to break the rules and go viral with the haunting.
But no one foresees the dark nightmare that awaits them all.
Evie Boyd is desperate to be noticed. In the summer of 1969, empty days stretch out under the California sun. The smell of honeysuckle thickens the air and the sidewalks radiate heat.
Until she notices them. The snatch of cold laughter. Hair, long and uncombed. Dirty dresses skimming the tops of thighs. Cheap rings like a second set of knuckles. The girls.
And at the centre, Russell. Russell and the ranch, down a long dirt track and deep in the hills. Incense and clumsily strummed chords. Rumours of sex, frenzied gatherings, teen runaways.
Was there a warning, a sign of things to come? Or is Evie already too enthralled by the girls to see that her life is about to be changed forever?
