Little GirlsLittle Girls by Ronald Malfi

From Bram Stoker Award nominee Ronald Malfi comes a brilliantly chilling novel of childhood revisited, memories resurrected, and fears reborn…When Laurie was a little girl, she was forbidden to enter the room at the top of the stairs. It was one of many rules imposed by her cold, distant father. Now, in a final act of desperation, her father has exorcised his demons. But when Laurie returns to claim the estate with her husband and ten-year-old daughter, it’s as if the past refuses to die. She feels it lurking in the broken moldings, sees it staring from an empty picture frame, hears it laughing in the moldy greenhouse deep in the woods…

At first, Laurie thinks she’s imagining things. But when she meets her daughter’s new playmate, Abigail, she can’t help but notice her uncanny resemblance to another little girl who used to live next door. Who died next door. With each passing day, Laurie’s uneasiness grows stronger, her thoughts more disturbing. Like her father, is she slowly losing her mind? Or is something truly unspeakable happening to those sweet little girls?

Witch Hunt: History of a PersecutionWitch Hunt: The History of a Persecution by Nigel Cawthorne

Details: Hardcover, 240 pages
Published: June 1st 2004 by Booksales

There have been numerous attempts to explain the witch-hunting mania that swept the Western world between the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries. Nigel Cawthorne vividly brings the hysteria to life with this powerful examination of actual witchcraft cases, and provides a compelling description of what it was like to live in a society where everyone believed in witches. Using contemporaneous court reports, depositions, letters, confessions and detailed written accounts, the author builds a terrifying picture of a world beset by the collective mania that was the Witch Hunt.


Why it’s on my TBR:

I’ve been interested in this topic since I was about 11 and I’ve had this book since I was about 15. I really need to get this one read. I hope it’s good. I remember starting it and enjoying it. I just didn’t have the time to read it then. I will have to get to this one soon.
