What I've Been Reading



Home by Cailean Steed

A fast-past read about a woman who escapes a cult... but returns to save her sister. Pacey, compelling, un-put-down-able.


Our Wives Under the Sea by Julie Armfield

A woman's wife returns after a submarine dive gone wrong and starts to change in strange ways. Atmospheric, reflective, literary.


This Is My Body, Given For You by Heather Parry

A short story collection filled with brilliantly-told tales of body horror. Dark, descriptive, strange.


Fray by Chris Carse Wilson

When the narrator's father goes missing, they find a cabin filled with mysteriously-scrawled notes that may reveal where and why he left. Reflective, deep, grief-filled.


The Blackhouse by Carole Johnstone

A woman visits an isolated Scottish island where she begins to unravel the locals' dark secrets. Atmospheric, twisty, thrilling.


Our Lady of Mysterious Ailments by T.L. Huchu

The second instalment in the Edinburgh Nights series, a sort of crime romp through a future Edinburgh. Vivid, pacey, weird.


Angie Spoto is an American fiction writer and poet living in Edinburgh whose debut novel The Grief Nurse was published in 2023.
