Gothic Literature

Is the hair on the back of your neck standing up because of the chilly Fall breeze or is someone watching you through your darkened window? Are you seeing shadows out of the corner of your eye or are the longer evenings messing with your mind? Do you hear bumps in the night because of your naughty cat or is there something (or someone) more sinister about?

Friends, we are now officially in spooky season.

If October makes you crave atmospheric Gothic literature, Herrick has you covered. Whether you love moody classics (Hello, English moors!) or you prefer a warmer climate (Hola, Mexican haciendas!) we have books for you.

Now all you need is a warm cup of tea and a cozy blanket to hide under when the spookiness makes you start thinking twice about your kitty cat’s motives. Is it just me, or do her eyes look a little more menacing than normal?... Sweet Baby Kitty? Hello?
