The Ladies of Horror Fiction readalongs are now taking place in our Ladies of Horror Fiction Goodreads group.
Each month the Ladies of Horror Fiction team choose ten titles. We choose these titles based on affordability and availability. We are not affiliated with any publisher, promoter, or author. Books are chosen from a range of titles that we feel will appeal to the community. We then create a poll that allows the community to vote on the title they would most enjoy reading. The poll runs for several days on or around the 15th of each month. In the event of a tie we may choose to create a tie-breaker poll with the 3 top books in lieu of managing two ongoing discussions. The book that gets the most votes from the community will be up for discussion at the beginning of the next month.
We’d love for everyone to join in the discussions!
For the month of January, the group selected The Twisted Ones by T. Kingfisher!
When a young woman clears out her deceased grandmother’s home in rural North Carolina, she finds long-hidden secrets about a strange colony of beings in the woods.
When Mouse’s dad asks her to clean out her dead grandmother’s house, she says yes. After all, how bad could it be?
Answer: pretty bad. Grandma was a hoarder, and her house is stuffed with useless rubbish. That would be horrific enough, but there’s more—Mouse stumbles across her step-grandfather’s journal, which at first seems to be filled with nonsensical rants…until Mouse encounters some of the terrifying things he described for herself.
Alone in the woods with her dog, Mouse finds herself face to face with a series of impossible terrors—because sometimes the things that go bump in the night are real, and they’re looking for you. And if she doesn’t face them head on, she might not survive to tell the tale.
From Hugo Award–winning author Ursula Vernon, writing as T. Kingfisher.
The Twisted Ones would be the perfect pick for our #LadiesFirst20 challenge as well! Will you be reading The Twisted Ones with us in January? Let us know in the comments!
