#BookReview THE TWELVE STRANGE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS by SYD MOORE


ABOUT THE BOOK


Christmas is around the corner...so too are all manner of spooky apparitions at the Essex Witch Museum

Feisty Rosie Strange can't seem to catch a break. The past always seems to come knocking in Adders Fork, forcing her and partner Sam Stone to investigate. In this collection of twelve short stories, Rosie and Sam are seen to do battle with all manner of creepy ghosts.

MY REVIEW

A short story collection full of the frightening and the fun and I loved the variety of the stories included as they seemed to be a little bit of everything, which was perfect for dipping into on a dark evening - even if it meant I had some rather peculiar dreams/nightmares afterwards!!

Linked to the Essex Witch Museum series - of which I still have a couple to catch up with - this collection is a mix of the weird and wonderful, the dark and twisted and all set in a variety of locations and featuring a range of different characters! It's not full on horror and gore, but often the more subtle sides to the supernatural, which can often be the most unsettling!

My favourites were In The Bag - a possessed hoover anyone?!!!! - and The House on Savage Lane which was the darkest tale for me and quite terrifying! There are ghostly goings on galore, evil cats and the Reaper and I just really enjoyed the different mix of stories and it's just made me even more eager to revisit the Essex Witch Museum series in full - bring on even more weird nightmares for me!!
