It's Monday, What Are You Reading? - Gothic Fiction

It's Monday and I'm starting to feel the Halloween spirit! It was a frosty morning and the heat was running and I just knew I was reading to give The Mysteries of Uldolpho another shot. So I dug around online for a decent, but free, digital version and downloaded it to my eReader. Now I just need to find where I stopped back in August.

If you want to get into the mood like I am here are some Gothic suggestions for your reading pleasure.
