Re: What Are You Reading? Oct. 2020

I’m reading A Gathering of Ghosts by Karen Maitland, a suitably dark, medieval tale for this time of year.

I’m also reading Coming Home to Penvennon Cove by Linn B Halton via Pigeonhole, a lighthearted tale set in Cornwall. I love stories set in that part of the world.
