Gothic Readalongs

Sometimes there are books you long to read but when you pick them up they are daunting Anne Radcliffes The Mysteries of Udolpho is one of those and to that end MsKatykins and I decided to read it along together but after reading a couple of other posts I got the idea to take it one step further and compile a list of Gothic or gothic inspired books to read hopefully with friends joining in so this will be the list in not particular order other than the first.  Each book will get its own sub page as they are read with a full list of links to all the posts I hope a few of you will take the time to join in.
