Happy #WorldBookDay 2018!

To celebrate World Book Day 2018, I thought I’d post a few of my favourites. Here goes…

TEACHER’S PET. Not the first Point Horror I ever read, but definitely the scariest. There’s stuff in this that still haunts me.
Because obviously. Essential reading for any human being, whether they’ve experienced mental health issues or not. This one has got me through some darkness, and continues to.
A love story for my next #WorldBookDay favourite. This is just gorgeous. Beautifully evocative and romantic. I fell for Achilles HARD, and I loved being in his world. Not just a gay classic but a classic full-stop.
THE WHITBY WITCHES. Robin Jarvis single-handedly inspired my love for language. His ability to find the perfect word at the perfect moment is second to none – and he’s a master of the fun/fear formula.
Savage alt-world stuff in my next #WorldBookDay favourite. ONLY EVER YOURS is a riveting thriller mixed with pulpy sci-fi and razor-sharp satire. It has serious fire in its belly. Unputdownable.
And #WorldBookDay wouldn’t be complete without a mention of Stephen King’s incomparable writing bible. This thing is gold dust for any scribbler. So good I’ll read it every year for the rest of my life.
I could go on and on but I won’t. I’ll end this #WorldBookDay love-in with this gorgeous newbie. It’s packed full of goodies. I’ve lost hours to its riches. Happy WBD all! 📚
