Welcome to This Week in Books, where we share what we’ve been up to in bookland this week and look ahead to next.
Wow, the first TWIB of Horror October is here already!
Throughout October, I’ll be doing the short version of this post where I will simply share what I’m reading now, then and next. Because quite frankly, there’s enough going on around here.
I’m afraid to say that my answers are the same as last week because I was too busy trying to launch #HO17 (and drinking gin with my mum) to get much reading done. I have caught up now though, so I’m ready to get stuck right in to some horror reads!
If you haven’t already, pleeeeeeeease take just a second to vote for your favourite horror story prompt for my second Flash Fiction Battle, below.
I’m enjoying The Silent Companions but it is a bit slow-going. I hope it picks up a bit.
I haven’t got any further with Norse Mythology (which I’m keeping at work to read in those elusive lunch breaks), so nothing to report there.
Then: Misery ~ Stephen King
Misery was great, as expected! My review will be up on Monday!
Next: ??? It’ll be I Am Behind You:
A supernatural superthriller from the author of Let the Right One In
Molly wakes her mother to go to the toilet. The campsite is strangely blank. The toilet block has gone. Everything else has gone too. This is a place with no sun. No god.
Just four families remain. Each has done something to bring them here – each denies they deserve it. Until they see what’s coming over the horizon, moving irrevocably towards them. Their worst mistake. Their darkest fear.
And for just one of them, their homecoming.
Vote Now! Four writers will write a short story based on the winning prompt.
