Coraline (by Neil Gaiman)

Coraline is a book I read about two years ago, and it's still one of my favorites. (I read so many books that being a "favorite" is a very big thing.)

Coraline is about a girl who finds a door in her home, a door that leads to an alternate world, where the mother and father have buttons instead of eyes. They seem friendly, until they want to sew buttons over her eyes and call her thier daughter...

All of my friends agree, Coraline is a good book...and very creepy.

A Great, Creepy Book

Very cool. I get to contribute! Anyway, here's my first recommendation for the freaky book club. I just finished Laura Schlitz's book, A Drowned Maiden's Hair. It's about an orphan who's adopted by three very odd old ladies and then finds herself being introduced to their family "business." (I'll let you guess the nature of that business. Let's just say that they aren't exactly upstanding citizens.)

I'm not the sort of reviewer who likes to give a lot away, so I'll just add that I loved this book!
