I enjoyed this book of festive ghost stories a lot, perfect for long winter evenings. Yes they were a little patchy but the good ones were very good and I appreciated the variety - some very Victorian-esque, some very modern, some creepier than others, some playing it straight and some trying to subvert things.

My first #festiveread for #wintergames! Even tho I didn‘t love every single story, I‘m very glad I read this collection for such a new perspective on both Christmas stories and African American writing. This had stories from the 1880s to well into the 20th century covering a lot of aspects of black lives in America that I don‘t see represented much, with so many perspectives on Christmas and the holidays.

So this was among the books from @hermyknee in my #secretsantagoespostal box. I probably should hang my head as I admit that, until today, I‘ve never read any P. D. James. However I sat and read the first story in this collection, and I‘m hooked! What a great #festiveread.

While mummy catches up on her TV, I'm reading this small festive read. Just read few pages, it's very gripping. All about #NYC #BookSwap #FestiveRead
