3 Spine-tingling Short Stories for Halloween

To Love To Read

The cleverest part of short stories is how in very few words the author can fit so much in and still unsettle your nerves!  If this Halloween you fancy reading a little tale that’s a bit spine-tingling-creepy, I have the perfect thing…

1. The Lottery by Shirley Jackson

It seems incredible that this story was published 70 years ago then it feels so current.  One of my favourite short stories ever written and it still freaks me out!

2. The Woman at the Store by Katherine Mansfield

There is something about including childhood innocence in a to a story that always adds a level of discomfort, especially in this tale.

3.  The Monkey’s Paw by W. W. Jacobs

What would you wish for if you had three wishes?  And more importantly, are you sure you really want it?

#100ActiveDays – Day 3

#100ActiveDays, Health & Beauty, Journey Back to Health

I have taken things a little easier today as my muscles are aching SO much!

So this evening I went for a walk.  With the children.  We stopped occasionally.  In exchange for sweets.  Okay, this evening I went trick or treating.  Maybe not the most strenuous exercise but I would bet that containing two kids off their faces on sugar is as strenuous as it gets!

Happy Halloween people x
