Uncle Silas: A Tale of Bartram-Haugh by J. Le Fanu, The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, Embassytown by China Miéville , The Consolation of Philosophy by Boethius 

 

Another of your books that brings back vivid memories. Staying at my Grandmother's house reading Uncle Silas in bed, hearing the wind whistling outside. They lived in Berkhamsted but were in the middle of an overgrown 2 acre garden so the house was in a patch of utter darkness with a single street light partially concealed by a tree. I read Dracula there too.

Atmospheric. I scared myself rigid reading Jekyl and Hyde living alone in a cheap and nasty part of Aberdeen, where I worked at the time, during the winter - no double glazing, bed on the floor and freezing cold. Didn't stop me reading it though.
