Long Lankin | Lindsey Barraclough

In an exquisitely chilling debut novel, four children unravel the mystery of a family curse and a ghostly creature known in folklore as Long Lankin. When Cora and her younger sister, Mimi, are sent to stay with their elderly aunt in the isolated village of Byers Guerdon, they receive a less-than-warm welcome. Auntie Ida is eccentric and rigid, and the girls are desperate to go back to London. But what they dont know is that their aunts life was devastated the last time two young sisters were at Guerdon Hall, and she is determined to protect her nieces from an evil that has lain hidden for years. Along with Roger and Peter, two village boys, Cora must uncover the horrifying truth that has held Bryers Guerdon in its dark grip for centuries before its too late for little Mimi. Riveting and intensely atmospheric, this stunning debut will hold readers in its spell long after the last page is turned.

If you like spooky reads I recommend this under-hyped book. It's probably upper middle grade/young adult.

Said my lord to my lady, as he mounted his horse: "Beware of Long Lankin that lives in the moss." Said my lord to my lady, as he rode away: "Beware of Long Lankin that lives in the hay. Let the doors be all bolted and the windows all pinned, And leave not a hole for a mouse to creep in." #supernaturalmysteries #maybookflowers

My TBR pilot is getting a little nuts haha but sometimes you just need more. (TBR pile not pictures, but does it get any more picturesque?)

A late #recommendsday but timely #booktober pick for y'all! Plus it's an #ebookdeal too 👏🏼📚🍾. If books about kids solving a ghostly mystery involving a spooky house, Long Lankin is that book. A fun book that might give you the creepy crawlies, but probably not the heebie jeebies. 👻

Sadly, I couldn't get into this audiobook. Has anyone read it? Should I try it as an ebook/print read?
