August Cosy Reading 2018

August Cosy Reading The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter Elaine Howlin Literary Blog

Another Cosy Reading Night has come to a close. Although this time it was a Cosy Reading Afternoon but night sounds better. Cosy Reading Night is a seasonal readathon hosted by Lauren and the Books. August Cosy Reading took place on Thursday 23rd from 1pm – 4pm.

My goal was to read an hour each of three different books which I didn’t manage to do because some guys showed up to look at my pipes and that’s not a euphemism! Watch my vlog of the readathon below or on my YouTube channel.

Do check out Lauren’s channel, she is one of my favourite YouTubers and is just such a lovely bubbly person. The next Cosy Reading Night is scheduled for October which is awesome. I think I’ll have to dress up and read some creepy books.

Books mentioned:

Shadowed Souls

Shadowed Souls edited by Jim Butcher

Featuring short stories from Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire, Kevin J. Anderson, and Rob Thurman, this dark and gritty “must-read anthology for UF fans”(RT Book Reviews) proves that nothing is as simple as black and white, light and dark, good and evil…

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher’s Cold Case, Molly Carpenter–Harry Dresden’s apprentice-turned-Winter Lady–must collect a tribute from a remote Fae colony and discovers that even if you’re a good girl, sometimes you have to be bad…

New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire’s Sleepover finds half-succubus Elsie Harrington kidnapped by a group of desperate teenage boys. Not for anything “weird.” They just need her to rescue a little girl from the boogeyman. No biggie.

In New York Times bestselling Kevin J. Anderson’s Eye of Newt, Zombie P.I. Dan Shamble’s latest client is a panicky lizard missing an eye who thinks someone wants him dead. But the truth is that someone only wants him for a very special dinner…

And New York Times bestselling author Rob Thurman’s infernally heroic Caliban Leandros takes a trip down memory lane as he deals wih some overdue–and nightmarish–vengeance involving some quite nasty Impossible Monsters.

The Lighthouse Keepers Daughter by Hazel Gaynor

1838: when a terrible storm blows up off the Northumberland coast, Grace Darling, the lighthouse-keeper’s daughter, knows there is little chance of survival for the passengers on the small ship battling the waves. But her actions set in motion an incredible feat of bravery that echoes down the century.
1938: when nineteen-year-old Matilda Emmerson sails across the Atlantic to New England, she faces an uncertain future. Staying with her reclusive relative, Harriet Flaherty, a lighthouse keeper on Rhode Island, Matilda discovers a discarded portrait that opens a window on to a secret that will change her life forever.
