    Shelf Edition: Author Sarah Read

    Our December guest for Shelf Edition is one of our favorite Ladies of Horror Fiction authors, Sarah Read! Sarah is an author and librarian. Do you have any recent favorite LOHF books?  So many!

Alma Katsu’s The Hunger ticked all my horror and history-loving boxes. Danielle Kaheaku’s In Extremis was beautiful and full of dread. And Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage was one of my favorite reads last year. What LOHF books do you have on your TBR?…
