Super dicey from a mental well-being perspective but I do enjoy them anyway.I went on a small binge with climate change dystopias recently, which I don't necessarily recommend, but I did enjoy all of these to whatever extent you can enjoy a climate change dystopia in 2021.
I limit how much horror I read. I will never read certain Stephen King titles. I don't watch horror movies either or I steel myself when I do. It's not so much the gore as the psychological tension that gets to me.Super dicey from a mental well-being perspective
Yes! I just finished it. Great book.Holy cow!
She likes Nick Drake? I've got one CD - need to check the books now.Just finished Elly Griffith's latest in the Dr Ruth Galloway series - good page-turning stuff, undemanding but perfect when you're in the mood for an archaeologists and police drama.
I don't think I've recommended him before but if anyone enjoys supernaturally-tinged murder mysteries or just a really good read, I can't say enough good things about Phil Rickman.
