Since it's almost Halloween, I thought it would be cool to read some scary stories. I don't really read horror anyway, not because I am such a chicken, but it's rare that I feel connected enough with a ghost story. Maybe I should blame the covers since it's one of those things that make me pick a book. Horror covers are usually scary or ghostly, and a ghost rarely look cute nor whimsical, so yeah...
I have this intention to read more classic. I was so ignorant about them in the past because I couldn't relate with ancient writing style. They tend to be a bit too poetic for me, and bear too much unnecessary details. Then again, taste were so much different back then, I could as well tolerate it.
