Haunting Read

My picks for this morning’s post aren’t haunting in a spooky way. I could have picked any of the Stephen Kings on my shelves, but I haven’t read many of them yet, so to me, they aren’t very haunting.

No, the two books that jumped out at me as I looked around the room looking for “Haunting Reads” were these two:

The Cage by Ruth Minsky Sender, which is about the Holocaust, and Roots by Alex Haley–and almost everyone knows the topic of that one–slavery in America.

Pretty haunting topics in my opinion. Hate and prejudices have been weighing a lot on my mind lately, so don’t be surprised to see these pop up on my reread list sometime soon.
