The Visitors Book and other Ghost stories by Sophie Hannah

22 April 2016




I'm hoovering through books lately but I haven't been putting my reviews up (I know, but I've been feeling lazy!)

So here's this weeks. The Visitors Book by Sophie Hannah

I've not read anything by Sophie Hannah before and this book is well written and intelligent

I'm not normally one for ghost stories my house is old and lends itself well to creepy stories!!

But This one is a lovely little quality hardback book. The cover is eye catching and the inside cover is designed to look like a visitor book


The book contains four short stories all with a supernatural slant, but I found the stories a bit hit and miss. I thought two were great while two were a bit predictable but they were well written and easy to follow


I'm not sure I'd class them as scary stories but this makes them more accessible to those that don't like really scary stories like me!! 



It was easy to read and a quick win on the 50 book challenge!! 



Disclosure: I received this book for free.  All opinions and photographs are my own

    1. The stories remind me of the stories you'd tell each other when you were kids

  3. Sounds like an interesting book. I like the fact that its a few stories instead of just one long story.

    1. It's good because you can read a story in one sitting so you don't have to worry about losing your place!

  4. Sounds like an interesting read, I would've loved to learn more about the individual stories :) I think the last "scary" book I read was Misery by Stephen King. Totally worth it.

  5. The cover is attractive, I'm not much of a reader but when I do I tend to read books like this. I'm a bit like you, can't take anything majorly creepy so may give this a try for the holiday I have coming up.

  7. I'm the kind of person who reads a book if it was HIGHLY recommended and I certainly haven't checked out any from this author so this is pretty interesting..
