Recent Updates and Currently Reading | July 14

The last couple of weeks have been so busy at the Book Den household! My most important piece of news is introducing you to Miss Posie.


A month ago we saw her get hit on the way to work. We were able to bring her to our vet where she had to have some minor surgeries and stay for a few weeks until they thought she was far enough into her recovery for us to take over. We were finally able to bring her home at the end of last week. She is absolutely precious. She still has another month or two of recovery, but she should be totally fine once she's healed up.

Posted Last Week


No posts! Between taking care of Posie and migrating the Ladies of Horror Fiction site to a new host, I'm behind again! I plan to write a couple of reviews and do some blog hopping today while watching the Wimbledon Men's Finals so stay tuned.

Finished Reading



Wanderers by Chuck Wendig - I'm planning to have a more detailed review out this week, but in a strange turn of events, I think I'm only giving Wanderers ⭐⭐⭐★★. It's an epic read, but there was something missing for me.

Wilder Girls by Rory Power ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - My preorder for Wilder Girls arrived this week, and I was glued to it. As much as I love stand alone books, I'm hoping, hoping, hoping this turns into a series. This was a buddy read with Emily, and she gave it 5⭐s, too.

Currently Reading



After reading and loving Rebecca last year, several of the Ladies of Horror Fiction team made plans to read Wuthering Heights. That week is finally here!

Recent Acquisitions



Salvation Day by Kali Wallace - My dear friend Toni from Misadventures of a Reader knows I love Kali Wallace so she sent me a copy of Salvation Day. I can't wait to read it!

The Saturday Night Ghost Club by Craig Davidson - Coming of age horror is my favorite so you know I've been waiting for this preorder! Craig Davidson is also known as Nick Cutter.

Poetry Magazine July/August 2019 - I subscribed to Poetry Magazine, and I'm so glad I did! They sent out 11 book length collections a year. This edition (July/August) collects Global Indian English poetry.



Many thanks to Wunderkind PR and HarperTeen for sending me the House of Furies series to review!

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

  5. Well hello Miss Posie. Sounds like she's lucky to find you guys. So glad she is doing well. I am glad to finally see all three House of Furies books together because I have the first one and just couldn't make it jive with the covers I've been seeing for the second two.

    1. I know - I totally messed up when setting up the LOHF giveaway. I used the original cover! The paperback cover makes a lot more sense.
