If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Line up

Take a look at these fun things: My college reading list...
"The Turn of the Screw" by Henry James,

"The Fall of the House of Usher and other tales" by Edgar Allan Poe<-- this one has my all time favorite word in it "phantasmagoric" Isn't it a fun word?

"The Monk" by Matthew Lewis,

"Three Gothic Novels",

and "The Mysteries of Udolpho" by Ann Radcliffe<-- fairy excited to read this one!!

These are all on my reading list for this Fall- all of these books are for one class "Horror Literature" Should be fun! I have five more for my Scottish literature class but I decided not to post them, I don't want to over due the books in one sitting. :)

Would any of you like a review on any of the books listed? If so I will make time for it.

I've only read the Poe book. Where's the Lovecraft? So wrong!

Summer I wanted to thank you for the award you bestowed on me. I will get to it as soon as my father recovers. Thank you for thinking of me. Hopefully I will soon be back to regular commenting and fairy hunting. :D

I recognize most. A very cool list to get through. And I always loved the covers on those book. Even framed a couple as art in college. Have a good one.

All new titles to me. Honestly, I'm about 6 novels behind myself in my itinerary, but reviews would still be interesting.
