Blog Tour: Charlotte Says by Alex Bell

Following the death of her mother in a terrible fire, Jemima flees to the remote Isle of Skye, to take up a job at a school for girls.

There she finds herself tormented by the mystery of what really happened that night.

Then Jemima receives a box of Frozen Charlotte dolls from a mystery sender and she begins to remember – a sΓ©ance with the dolls, a violent argument with her step-father and the inferno that destroyed their home.

And when it seems that the dolls are triggering a series of accidents at the school, Jemima realizes she must stop the demonic spirits possessing the dolls – whatever it takes. 



The Scariest Places to Read Charlotte Says by Alex Bell
Alex Bell is a masterful horror writer, and her first Red Eye book Frozen Charlotte gave me actual nightmares. Her stories are creepy and chilling and they stay with you. Charlotte Says expands the creepy and all-too-real feeling world she has woven.

But where are the scariest places to read Charlotte Says?

In short: Everywhere. It's creepy AF.

But here are some Completely 100% Real Pictures as proof.

Katherine and Elizabeth thought that a buddy read of Charlotte Says at their monthly Spiritualist Seance was a good idea. They were wrong.

When Amelia stopped on her canal-side walk to read walk to read some of Charlotte Says, she thought she was being healthy what with the walking and the fresh air. Ha.

When Beatrice decided to take a break from the the cabbage harvest to read a few pages, she thought she was safe. She really shouldn't have put that knife down. 

Emma thinks that cosy autumn evenings, when it's dark and drizzling outside, are made for reading. Now she is regretting the lack of light.

Minnie sneaked downstairs to read Charlotte Says in the middle of the night by candlelight. Fool.

When Clara was babysitting she thought it would be HILARIOUS to read Charlotte Says to Lillian. Spoiler Alert: It was not.

Alice likes to think she's brave, and that reading Charlotte Says in broad daylight in the middle of the living room would be fine.
"Just sit still, and I'll paint your portrait."
"Can I read?"
"Sure."

Poor Myrtle is too ill to move from her bed, so her sister Mildred is reading out loud to her. Myrtle cannot run, nor hide. Mildred is a bitch.

    I attempted to read the Empty Grave by candlelight the other day (long story!) and scared myself witless and promptly put it down 😱😱

  5. Omg, this absolutely cracked me up! And you can really see how spooky this book is based on the expressions of the people reading it ;). I'm not usually much for scary things but all of these photos give me a Haunted Mansion vibe so I think I could handle this.

    Still cracking up over this post! YOU ARE A WIZARD!
