The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle | excerpt

In my current 'The Next Five Books' video, I promised an excerpt of the book I was reading at the time, THE ACCIDENT SEASON. I have since finished it, and think I can safely promise that it will make my favorite books of 2015 list. Loved it!

So here is a brief reading from it; please note that I'm reading from an ARC, or advance copy, which may have changes from the final edition.
Also, please note: I totally think you should pick this one up. SUCH a strong debut!!

THE ACCIDENT SEASON by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
Get It | Add It
Contemporary/Magical Realism/Paranormal, 304 pages
Expected publication: August 18th 2015 by Kathy Dawson Books  (PenguinRandomHouse)
It's the accident season, the same time every year. Bones break, skin tears, bruises bloom.

The accident season has been part of seventeen-year-old Cara's life for as long as she can remember. Towards the end of October, foreshadowed by the deaths of many relatives before them, Cara's family becomes inexplicably accident-prone. They banish knives to locked drawers, cover sharp table edges with padding, switch off electrical items - but injuries follow wherever they go, and the accident season becomes an ever-growing obsession and fear.

But why are they so cursed? And how can they break free?


  1. It sounds so gooooooooood! I can't wait to check it out. I love when a writer's language is so rich with metaphor. Thanks for sharing that excerpt.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
