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…
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*
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!
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
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.
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..
