My all-time favorite book is The Phantom of the Opera. That's good for Halloween. I'm actually hosting an online book group for it this month, which I think will be tons of fun. You can sign up for it here

Yes, Phantom is good, though it has continuity problems throughout.

Oh wow where did they all come from :eek: ! Thanks for pointing it out. Hope you enjoy the book, it's my favourite of hers so far, definitely a spine-tingler, but not gruesome.

That sounds like fun! I'd forgotten about Phantom, it's a great book and fills in a lot of background to the phantom's story.

Just finished "The Little Stranger" by Sarah Waters. What a terrific recommendation. Thanks so much. I doubt I would have found it on my own.
