It's great to be finally back in the swing of things (sort of) post baby and I actually managed to read enough books to justify a Month In Books post! I realise that most of these are fairly dark in nature, often with a bit of death and paranormal goings on thrown in for luck, which means that this list is probably more appropriate to an October pickings, but ho hum... And whilst they might not be summer beach reads, most of these books are good for being curled up under a blanket with whilst it's gloomy outside - perfect if you're looking for something for the next couple of months yourself.
A new perspective on one of Britain's darkest periods of history. Before the Salem witch trials there was Matthew Hopkins - Britain's self-appointed Witchfinder General. This chilling tale looks at what happened in the years between 1645 and 1647 when he held sway over East Anglia, through the eyes of his widowed sister Alice.
