Just fyi - I bought a little battery pack called ‘Pocket Juice’ before the storm. It’s no bigger than a deck of cards. It recharged both kindles, my phone and watch, and still had more than half it’s power left. So a good investment for power outages.

I listened to the audiobook of This House Is Haunted, an October nominee. I enjoyed it; it didn't have any huge surprises but I liked the writing style and the pacing. I can't say it scared me, but it certainly held my attention.

Thank you for nominating it in the first place!

Early on, it tracks very closely with Ruth Ware's Turn of the Key; of course they both are riffs on The Turn of the Screw. But having read Ware more recently than James, I kept seeing the similarities and wondering if Ware had read This House Is Haunted.

The audiobook narrator (Alison Larkin) was excellent.
