#Bookvent – Celebrating my favourite reads of 2016.

The next door on my bookvent calendar opens onto a novel which has stuck with me since the moment I first read it. Haunting, atmospheric and unlike any book I have read before, from start to finish I was gripped. The book creates a sense of claustrophobia and yet also agoraphobia at the same time. The style was thoroughly unique and the characters all consuming. And the ending… I still cannot decide quite what the truth of the story is. Book 3 is, quite simply, beautiful.
