Thank you @putnambooks for the #gifted book! 

The Titanic has certainly cemented its place in our pop culture conscious. Author Alma Katsu has crafted a creepy Titanic ghost story as only she can.

There is something wrong aboard the Titanic. Passengers have been troubled by a series of misfortunes ever since the luxury liner set sail. A few of the ships most celebrated guests, including Madeline Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim, and maid Annie Hebbkey are convinced something from the spirit world might be the cause. 

Annie is one of the lucky ones to survive the sinking. Six years later she’s a nurse aboard the Titanic’s sister ship the Britannic, which is serving as a naval hospital during WWI. Annie is plagued by the demons of the fateful Titanic crossing. Annie soon recognizes an unconscious soldier brought onboard Britannia. It’s Mark Fletcher, a man Annie was immediately attracted to on the Titanic. But how could he have survived the sinking of the Titanic?

This is an atmospheric ghost story that has alternating timelines and multiple POVs. The story moves at a fast and steady pace-like the Titanic sailing to its doom. Katsu knows how to bring out the eerie and ominous to make this a spine-tingling ghost story. This was an absorbing and entertaining spooky read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

QOTD: why do you think we’re still fascinated by the sinking of the Titanic 112 years later?
