Those Across the River
Those Across the River | Christopher Buehlman
17 posts | 21 read | 18 to read
Haunted by memories of the Great War, failed academic Frank Nichols and his wife have arrived in the sleepy Georgia town of Whitbrow, where Frank hopes to write a history of his familys old estatethe Savoyard Plantationand the horrors that occurred there. At first their new life seems to be everything they wanted. But under the facade of summer socials and small-town charm, there is an unspoken dread that the townsfolk have lived with for generations. A presence that demands sacrifice. It comes from the shadowy woods across the river, where the ruins of the Savoyard Plantation still stand. Where a long-smoldering debt of blood has never been forgotten. Where it has been waiting for Frank Nichols

#screamathon @4thhouseontheleft

I finished up my first audiobook for this reading challenge. It was a random pick from the Horror section on Overdrive.

The story had an intriguing premise with a town being threatened by something, or someone, living across the river from the town. Parts of it were creepy, other parts felt rushed and weird.

Not a bad book, just not quite a pick for me.

Here's my #spookstack as part of a fun Instagram group of horror readers. These are some of my favorite horror books I've read. (Note: There's no Darcy Coates because I mostly do her on audio, but she's totally in there in spirit.)

Took me three check outs, but I finally listened to the entire thing. Very suspenseful, well written, creepy as hell!

Love the beautiful inlay of this book. In 1940s Georgia a writer and his lover hide away in a backwoods town whose step into modernity involves dispensing with certain pagan customs. The result is a horrifying and surprising bloodbath. I found much to appreciate as a horror story.

Bought a book today which I‘m excited about! It was on NPR‘s 100 best horror stories list. BUT I then had the urge to go through all the books we‘ve got in the last year or so and HAVEN‘T read....32 is what I came to. Which is about equal to the number of books I‘ve read. 😑 How do you balance? #consumerism #mortality

This book is turning out to be nothing like what I expected. I have about 70 pages left, and I still can't decide what I think of it (probably because it's taken me by such surprise!).

I love a good thriller. Except when it deals with something that isn't realistic. This was a horror genre, not necessarily thriller in my humble opinion. 😐
