#ReadingCram Challenge: Book Recommendations

#ReadingCram
For today's #ReadingCram Read-a-Thon challenge, I am supposed to recommend a book for a snow day, a rainy day, a beach day, and a spooky night. Clearly, I like books that are a touch scary.


Doomsday Book by Connie WillisRecommend a book good for a snow day
It is Christmas-time during the Medieval Ages, and time traveler Kivrin is not having the best luck.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Parasite by Mira GrantRecommend a book good for a rainy day
This is the perfect book to scare you when you are all cozy in a blanket and the rain is coming down outside.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail CarrigerRecommend a book good for a beach day
Join Sophronia on her adventures at Finishing School!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley JacksonRecommend a book good for a spooky night
This was a reread for me, but this book scares me every time!

Those are good recs! The Haunting of Hill House is a personal favorite of mine.

Great recs!!! Gail Carriger and Mira Grant are both authors I've been meaning to check out but just haven't found the time. Now that it's summer here in Australia, I might just have to take you up on that beachy recommendation :D

Gail Carriger and Mira Grant are such great writers. I would recommend starting with the Soulless/Parasol Protectorate series by Carriger and the Newsflesh Trilogy by Grant. Both of these series are complete, so you don't have to wait for the next book!

You really should. It is considered a classic in the haunted house genre. It stands up to rereads.

Ooh I haven't read The Haunting of Hill House yet, nor Parasite - both of them I must get to before next Halloween! A long way off I know, but I'm a planning! Thanks for the recommendations :-)

They are both fantastic books. Parasite is the first book in a duology. The second book comes out next October (I think), so you will be ready to go! :)

So you'd want to be scared on a rainy day? Did Parasite really scare you? I'll have to read my copy sometime this coming year haha. I know April read it and really enjoyed it - though I think she said it took her a bit to dig into.

Have you tried Carriger's Soulless series? It is her adult, steampunk, paranormal romance series. It is within this universe. I think that might be a good fit for you. Her YA Finishing School series is really great too though!

I ended up reading a scary scene at 2AM while taking a bath, because my back was hurting me. It didn't help that my cat starting banging on the door to the bathroom at that moment. I thought Feed was a strong book than Parasite though.
