TCL’s #EightCandleBookTag Link Party – Sixth Candle for 2019 – The Extra Sense!

 

00 Eight Candle Book TagAs you already know from my post last week (where you’ll find the concept and the topics), I invented a new meme to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah with all of my book blogging friends, of all races, creeds, religions, genders, and whatever. I’m calling it…

The Chocolate Lady’s

Eight Candle Book Tag Link Party!

This post is being published just as Jews in Israel light the sixth candle for the sixth day of Hanukkah. I have chosen one book for each night on bookish topics (the topics and rules can be found on this post, here). Also, you will find my Link Party at the bottom of each of these posts so anyone who wants to can join in the fun.

Remember, you don’t have to be Jewish to participate!

Here is my choice for:

🕯️🕯️🕯️🕯️Sixth Candle 🕯️🕯️
The Extra Sense:

A book that scared you, worried you, or that was edgy or spooky in some way (doesn’t have to be a paranormal book).

cb867-see2bwhat2bi2bhave2bdoneProbably the creepiest books I’ve ever read, one that left me feeling uneasy, but which was really fascinating to read, and that I enjoyed the psychological aspects combined with a horrible double murder, was “See What I Have Done” by Sarah Schmidt. This novel is about the infamous Lizzie Borden, who – although acquitted in court – probably did murder her father and step-mother by brutally chopping at them with an axe. Schmidt gives us a stunning psychological thriller of a novel, that is also thrilling to read! Highly recommended even for people who don’t read these kinds of books.8th Candle

What book would you choose for this subject?

If you write a post for this meme, I hope you’ll put your link to that post into the link party tool here (or just put your choice in a comment on this post), so we can all see it!

 

The link party will run from 6:00am Israel time (GMT +2) on December 22 through midnight December 30!

Happy Holidays!

  1. “Educated” by Tara Westover is unbelievably disturbing. Not in a paranormal sense, but because of the brutality and violence Tara endured within the family dynamic. How anyone could live the way they did is mind boggling. That Tara had the gumption and courage to rise above her upbringing and then write about it is astounding.

    1. I think that’s why I decided not to read that book, to be honest. I think in the same way, Maggie O’Farrell’s memoir “I am, I am, I am: Seventeen Brushes with Death” is also a disturbing read.
