Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week. 

The first week of Horror October has been a blast! I hope you guys are enjoying it as much as I am. Here’s what I’ve been reading…

Now:  Reckless ~ Cornelia Funke // The EnchantedRene Denfeld

I kept putting Reckless off, simply because Netgalley only had a pdf file for it, but I’ve started it now…so far so good. I’m also still in the beginning stages of The Enchanted which started off great but then Horror October got in the way. *shakes fist*

Then:  Self-Made Man ~ Poppy Z. Brite // The Merciless II ~ Danielle Vega // The Daemoniac ~ Kat Ross

I had a bit of a Horror October is coming panic and ploughed through these last week. On the most part I  enjoyed them a lot. Expect my reviews soon!

Next: ??? 

Oooh I’m going to let my mood decide but either The Travelling Bag (see below) by Susan Hill or Hunter of the Dead by Stephen Kozeniewski.

New on the Shelves

(Bought:)

The Travelling Bag ~ Susan Hill

Walter Craig was a clever scientist. As a young man he took away all the honours and prizes and some of his work was ground-breaking. But after he became seriously ill, his genius faded, and he needed the help of an assistant. When Silas Webb was appointed to the job he seemed the perfect choice, but he always preferred to work alone, even in secret. Then, quite suddenly, Webb disappeared.

Why ?

Later, Craig opens a prestigious scientific journal and finds a paper, containing his own work, in detail, together with the significant results he had worked out. The research is his and his alone. But the author of the paper is Dr Silas Webb. Craig determines that he will hunt Webb down and exact revenge.

Were it not for a terrifying twist of circumstance, he might have succeeded.

Red Eye YA Horror Book Set ~ Various

I’ve already read Frozen Charlotte and loved it so I have high hopes for the other books in this set too. I’m not sure if I’ll get round to any of these for Horror October, but I couldn’t resist anyway.

Featuring award-winning authors and rising stars, Red Eye is the killer new YA series from Stripes Publishing. A fusion of pop culture, violence and technology, Red Eye gives horror a frighteningly contemporary makeover that teen readers will love. For fans of all things gruesome and ghastly – prepare to be scared out of your wits..

OK, that’s it for this week. I’m not going to be taking part in Waiting on Wednesday during October because well, there enough going on around here. 😉

  1. I finished The Travelling Bag and Other Ghostly Stories by Susan Hill today – I love her ghost stories, and whilst these were enjoyable, they weren’t my favourite of her works. The four stories are quite different from one another, and personally, I was more impressed by the three non title stories than The Travelling Bag. Interesting reads though. Happy reading!

  2. You’re braver than I am… horror is one of the things I can’t read or watch! I’m ok with thrillers though… it can be a fine line! 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my post earlier and happy (/spooky!) reading.
