Halloween BooOOok Club

Our book club pick for Halloween is Angela Carter’s horror-filled collection of short stories, The Bloody Chamber. What an incredible choice, once again. We truly are on fire with the book club picks. I am super excited to read The Bloody Chamber, it’s hailed as one of the 20th Century’s greatest collections of short storiesContinue reading “Halloween BooOOok Club”
