I’ve heard a lot of good things about this author on the Guardian Books Podcast and have some of his books unread on my Kindle. I’ve also seen Book Twitter raving about it so what better excuse to read a spooky book in the fine month of October.

The situation isn’t likely to change anytime soon so I think I will have to become a little more selective in what I request. But on to the book…

I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump recently, I haven’t read any particularly interesting or exciting new YA releases lately so to say my expectations were low going into this would be an understatement of epic proportions.
