On the Shelf: Her Fearful Symmetry

Curling up with a good book has always been one of the simple pleasures I enjoy most on a cold winter night (of which we’ve had many lately!). I tend toward contemporary women’s fiction and, as you may have noticed if you’ve read my blog on a regular basis, I especially like stories that are a bit different. The book that’s been keeping me company the past few evenings – Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger – is no exception.

It's Halloween!

Why do we like to be scared? Do you think it might all go back to that first jack-in-the-box encounter? We turn the crank, the clown jumps out, we get scared, and then we laugh. That little thrill just gets us every time.
When Halloween comes around every year, we start thinking about dressing up in costumes and snacking on tiny boxes of candy and miniature candy bars – and what movies we can watch to scare the daylights out of us! Or make us laugh. Or maybe even make us cry.

I’m sticking with a ghost theme this year, and I’ve divided my viewing into three categories.
