Stephie (York)

I enjoy discussing (and learning about) history, folklore, literature, sociology, and all things supernatural and ghostly. I also like the idea that a book group would keep me accountable for reading the chosen materials. The internet has killed my attention span and I want it back!

Stephie recommends:

Julien’s House
by Judith Hawkes | Buy this book
A dreamily atmospheric book about a pair of married psychical researchers who move into a reputedly haunted house in order to prove or disprove the local stories. The subtlety of the hauntings; the slow trickle of information that the wife receives without being aware—-because how many of us imagine that our most fleeting thoughts might be whispered into our subconscious by someone we can neither see with our eyes or hear with our ears? And the husband, desperately jealous of his wife’s off the charts psychic gifts and unable to perform sexually, suddenly finds himself sexually attracted to his wife again. Is it just the new environment? Is it some sort of physical, hormonal change in him? Is it an eighteen year old boy who was desperately in love with his young stepmother? No clear answers come as the tension between the couple and the intensity of the haunting build. The author’s extensive reading in early 20th century spiritualist literature adds an overlay of the scientifically presented romanticism of the time, and the changes in light and shadow throughout the day are almost a character themselves. A book so good that after having bought and read the paperback to death, I sought out and bought the hardcover.

Perny (Northallerton)

I am new(ish) to the area, and looking to meet people with similar interests to me. I love reading, a mix of fiction and non-fiction. Usually historical non-fiction, and fiction genres are varied, but I tend to stay away from horrors or psychological thrillers! Have missed being in a book club since I moved to the north east.

Christine (Skipton)

Recently back living in Gargrave after a few years away, almost retired and missing my previous book group. I’m an avid reader of quality contemporary fiction but also open to reading other genres including travel and nature writing. Writers I particularly enjoy include Donna Tartt, Rose Tremain, William Boyd, Julian Barnes as well as younger writers like Sally Rooney. Happy to share hosting and set up a new group if there’s interest.

Debbie (Pickering)

Hi I have recently moved to Pickering and would love to meet some new people. I enjoy reading a mixture of psychological thrillers and easy to read fiction. I would enjoy being part of a book club to introduce me to reading different books, books I wouldn't necessarily choose myself. I look forward to hearing from you

Debbie recommends:

Ragdoll by Daniel Cole
Ragdoll
by Daniel Cole | Buy this book
Thrillingnpschological thriller, the Starr if a trilogy. Very well written and despite the nature of the book, Daniel writes with a lot of humour. The trilogy is fantastic and keeps you guessing throughout.
