Eleven-year-old Amy needed to shut up. I was not getting sucked in. I’d made my decision to live as ghost- and magic-free as possible. Even if ‘as possible’ was sometimes ‘not at all.'”

This month I’m going to spotlight books more inclined toward the paranormal or horror genres since it’s October and one of my favorite parts about this month is Halloween. Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore is one of my favorite witchy reads and so very much underrated.

From Goodreads:

“Amy Goodnight knows that the world isn’t as simple as it seems—she grew up surrounded by household spells and benevolent ghosts. But she also understands that “normal” doesn’t mix with magic, and she’s worked hard to build a wall between the two worlds. Not only to protect any hope of ever having a normal life.

Ranch-sitting for her aunt in Texas should be exactly that. Good old ordinary, uneventful hard work. Only, Amy and her sister, Phin, aren’t alone. There’s someone in the house with them—and it’s not the living, breathing, amazingly hot cowboy from the ranch next door.

It’s a ghost, and it’s more powerful than the Goodnights and all their protective spells combined. It wants something from Amy, and none of her carefully built defenses can hold it back.

This is the summer when the wall between Amy’s worlds is going to come crashing down.”
