Every month we pick a book we know to be one of Kat’s favourites or one she has picked up and showcased via social media. For October, we picked The Dark Secret of Weatherend by John Bellairs, the second volume of the Anthony Monday Mysteries. Kat seems to really enjoy juvenile gothic adventures so who are we to deny them?
When Anthony Monday stumbles upon the diary of J.K. Borkman, he thinks he’s unearthed a worthless piece of junk. But Borkman’s mysterious writings turn out to be much more–plans to turn the world into an icy wasteland. By the time ghastly weather sets in and Anthony realizes it’s Borkman’s fanatical son who is bent on carrying out his father’s horrific work, it may be too late to stop him.
