Novel-ember: Day Twenty

Day Twenty: The House with a Clock in Its Walls, John Bellairs.

An early entry point into my lifelong obsession with everything gothic, supernatural and horror-themed. I love the world and characters that Bellairs created - loveable old warlocks, grouchy villains and totally spooky situations made me a huge fan. 

His books also introduced me to the work of one of my favorite illustrators: Edward Gorey

Perfect reading for these cold temperatures!

Copies can be found on Amazon.
