Exploring My Bookshelves: Something for Halloween

Exploring My Bookshelves is a weekly meme created by Victoria at Addlepates and Book Nerds and co-hosted with Shannon at For the Love of Words. Visit either blog for the list of topics.

This week’s topic:

A thriller or horror book

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

I don’t read much horror or thriller books so since I’ve already mentioned all the ones I’ve read in other posts, I decided to feature one I recently hauled in this one. I haven’t yet read Emily Carroll’s Through the Woods, but I’m looking forward to it. I heard that it’s great and creepy. It’s a graphic novel, so I’m looking forward to the beautiful illustrations as well.

From Goodreads:

‘It came from the woods. Most strange things do.’

Five mysterious, spine-tingling stories follow journeys into (and out of?) the eerie abyss.

These chilling tales spring from the macabre imagination of acclaimed and award-winning comic creator Emily Carroll.

Come take a walk in the woods and see what awaits you there…

How this meme works:
  1. Take a “shelfie” (a picture of your bookshelf). Preferably literal, but e-shelves work too.
  2. Write something on the day’s prompt.
  3. Give the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it).
  4. Link back to Victoria’s post.

  1. Through The Woods has been on TBR for forever! I seriously need to pick it up asap! I love graphic novels, and I heard this story is amazing, definitely perfect for Halloween!


  2. Wow, thats one of the most beautifully awesome covers I’ve ever seen, and such an alluring title.
    And What will we find in the woods i wonder :-/

    The most scariest thing I’ve found in the woods was an enraged red deer stag, who came up real close roaring until his hind which I’d bluffed jumped past me, and I’m glad she did.

    Happy almost Halloween 🙂


    1. Lol, well good you got out of that safely. And Happy Halloween. You don’t get scared being in the woods this time of year? Maybe you shouldn’t read this book if you see it.


      1. I’ll absolutely be reading this book when I find it 😉
        This time of year is good in nz’s forests, the rut is in April, and there abouts.
        So we don’t really have any other dangerous animals, except maybe women, but they seem to congregate more around town than the woods
