Top Ten Tuesday! Favorite (Recent) Atmospheric Books

Top Ten Tuesday! Favorite (Recent) Atmospheric Books

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Please check out her website for more Top Ten Tuesday topics! This week’s topic is all about atmospheric books. Everyone has a definition of atmospheric. For me, it is gothic, and/or the setting is a whole vibe. For the most part, I stuck with recent reads. The reviews for each are linked (includes summary).
