In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same.
In 2016, Eddie is fully grown, and thinks he’s put his past behind him. But then he gets a letter in the mail, containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank . . . until one of them turns up dead.
That’s when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.
From the acclaimed and award-winning author of The Hunger comes an eerie, psychological twist on one of the world’s most renowned tragedies, the sinking of the Titanic and the ill-fated sail of its sister ship, the Britannic.
Someone, or something, is haunting the ship. That is the only way to explain the series of misfortunes that have plagued the passengers of the Titanic from the moment they set sail. The Titanic’s passengers expected to enjoy an experience befitting the much-heralded ship’s maiden voyage, but instead, amid mysterious disappearances and sudden deaths, find themselves in an eerie, unsettling twilight zone. While some of the guests and crew shrug off strange occurrences, several–including maid Annie Hebbley, guest Mark Fletcher, and millionaires Madeleine Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim–are convinced there’s something more sinister going on. And then disaster strikes.
Years later, Annie, having survived that fateful night, has attempted to put her life back together by going to work as a nurse on the sixth sailing of the Britannic, newly refitted as a hospital ship to support British forces fighting World War I. When she happens across an unconscious Mark, now a soldier, she is at first thrilled and relieved to learn that he too survived the tragic night four years earlier. But soon his presence awakens deep-buried feelings and secrets, forcing her to reckon with the demons of her past–as they both discover that the terror may not yet be over.
Featuring an ensemble cast of characters and effortlessly combining the supernatural with the height of historical disaster, The Deep is an exploration of love and destiny, desire and innocence, and, above all, a quest to understand how our choices can lead us inexorably toward our doom.

The spellbinding tale of six queer witches forging their own paths, shrouded in the mist, magic, and secrets of the ancient California redwoods.
Danny didn’t know what she was looking for when she and her mother spread out a map of the United States and Danny put her finger down on Tempest, California. What she finds are the Grays: a group of friends who throw around terms like queer and witch like they’re ordinary and everyday, though they feel like an earthquake to Danny. But Danny didn’t just find the Grays. They cast a spell that calls her halfway across the country, because she has something they need: she can bring back Imogen, the most powerful of the Grays, missing since the summer night she wandered into the woods alone. But before Danny can find Imogen, she finds a dead boy with a redwood branch through his heart. Something is very wrong amid the trees and fog of the Lost Coast, and whatever it is, it can kill. Lush, eerie, and imaginative, Amy Rose Capetta’s tale overflows with the perils and power of discovery — and what it means to find your home, yourself, and your way forward.
❄️Hi guys, MERRY CHRISTMAS!, I hope you’re having an amazing day full of love, peace and family This will be a pretty random post of my wishing you the best, because even though I always tell you this, it’s important for me, so I couldn’t stop writing in this day to express my love and best wishes for all of you, babes 💛
🌟 This is a time of the year to reflect and to think about what really matters in our lives. I think sometimes we forget it and we can be sad for nonsense or be focused on things that don’t deserve our attention, but we must turn back, and ask ourselves the right questions to refocus on what is really important. In my case, is to enjoy more of my family and especially of my brothers, sometimes I’m so busy that I can’t see them and as a big sister that kills me, so I’m determined to spend much more time and be there with them as they grow up. On the other hand, here in the community I have begun to be more grateful, I know that I am in general, but you can always be more and this community has given me so much, it has simply made me part of something magical. And I can honestly say that it is not in my plans to stop blogging or to stop sharing all my readings and my thoughts with you because it’s something that makes me honestly happy. But you must remember, and you can take this as a piece of advice if you want, that when things with your blog get difficult or you just don’t feel relevant in the community or if it’s hard to achieve your goals, then you have to think about why you started in the first place. I know that sometimes it can be stressful and you can feel that what you do is not enough, but you know what?, It is enough, and you should be proud of the love and passion you put in something you love doing, because there’s nothing like that feeling and nobody can take that away from you. And above all remember, why you started in the first place, and if you still feel that passion, you shouldn’t stop, you shouldn’t be disappointed or feel bad, take some time if you need it, but don’t give up if it’s something you love to do, because I’M PROUD OF YOU AND I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU DO IN YOUR BLOG. And at the end of the day you’re not alone, most of us start because we love to read and it makes us feel good and we love to imagine all these stories in our heads, or maybe because we need to escape from something, because I myself have been there. Well I want to tell you that you must not forget why you started in the first place, YES, I said it again lol. And if it was for a good thing, keep hold of that and if it was to escape from something bad then you can transform it into something positive and beautiful. There’s a lot of love and support in the bookish community , I know there is because I feel it every day and I see it in other people as well, but it’s real that sometimes it gets difficult and you can feel overwhelmed by situations, well, there’s no shame in it , we’ve all been there, so if you need someone to talk to, you can write me, you know I’ll always be there to help🌟
Maybe that was too much, but I felt that I needed to express it and get it out of me, so I did it lol. I hope you have a great Christmas, that you’re surrounded by love and understanding and that above all, you’re really really happy💕 I send you my best wishes and I love you guys❄️
