Recent Updates and Currently Reading | September 23

This has been a pretty wonderful weekend of rainy, somewhat cooler weather. I'm ready for Fall!

I want to invite everyone to participate in the upcoming Rebecca readalong hosted by the Ladies of Horror Fiction team. We will all be reading Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier during the month of November and posting discussions for the community each Sunday. I've never read Rebecca! Have you? If you want to join in on your blog or on the LOHF site, you can find all of the details on the Community Wide Readalong: Rebecca post.



Finished Reading



Husk by Rachel Autumn Deering ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - I'm excited about this debut.

Creature by Hunter Shea ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - I promise to have a review of this one out soon because I loved it.

The House by the Cemetery by John Everson ⭐⭐ - This was a buddy read with Bark, Emily, Lilyn, Toni, and Tracy. They enjoyed this one a bit more than I did.

I'm Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - I'm torn on my rating for this one. Until I write out my full thoughts, I'm going with 4 stars.

Currently Reading



The Toy Thief by D.W. Gillespie - I'm almost done reading The Toy Thief.

Words Under the Words by Naomi Shihab Nye - This poetry collection pulls together poems from three of Nye's collections and it is amazing.

Bag of Bones by Stephen King - Tomorrow I start my reread of Stephen King's Bag of Bones. It's been about 20 years since I read it, and I have a feeling adult me will find a different story in the pages.

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading this week or leave me some links!

  4. I've always wanted to read Hunter Shea, and it seems like his popularity is picking up recently (probably also because he's been churning out a ton of new stuff lately). Really intrigued to see you give one of his books 5 stars, now I'm even more curious.

    1. Right? It seems like he writes a new book every other month. I was not expecting what I found in Creature.

  7. I plan on doing the readalong with you guys - I've always wanted to read that book. I'm so glad to see you loved Creature as much as I did! It was such a good read. I started a Flame Tree Press science fiction read last night for a blog tour - Ten Thousand Thunders. Wish me luck because you know I'm a science fiction newbie!
