We love a good magical haunting  story to give us goosebumps  here in Cinders! Here are a few of our favourite mystical, dreamlike reads to curl up with for November!

Lips Touch  by Laini Taylor

 

16114708

Laini Taylor writes magical stories so well she may actually be magic herself. Lips Touch Three times is one of her earlier works but it is just as beautiful. With a  collection of three stories all of which revolve around a fateful kiss you will not be disappointed. A woman who travels down into hell to rescue the man she loves, a demonic curse following a young woman and a wonderful modern adaptation of Christina Rossetti’s Goblin Fruit. Goblin Fruit is a particular stand out, where we meet Kizzy, a girl who wants. Every day of Kizzy’s life she is filled with wanting and desire, so much so, that it brings a goblin to her door. A goblin who is desperate to take her heart. There is power in Laini Taylor’s magical stories. These are stories filled with power and dark desire. With nightmare and with illusion. With everything that we love about the autumn season. You will not be disappointed.

As editor of Cinders magazine books, television, comic books and the lack of representation for women in movies that I otherwise enjoy are most of what I talk about. Aside from reading I write, mostly about driving from Galway to Ennis. You can find more of my musings over on Twitter @redridinghood19. Check out Cinders magazine at www.cindersmagazine.com
