⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Enjoyed this book. Bodies are showing up at the Museum of Natural History and no one knows why. There seems to be a monster on the prowl.

#Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView

1. How about I rank them from most reached for to least?
Thriller (usually some horror elements)
Mystery
Horror (used to be my #1, not much lately)
True crime

2. Relic, The Shining, The Ruins or The Exorcist. I‘ve read a lot of gross or gory books but true creeps came from these 4, maybe because I was alone reading at night in the dark ... BOO!

Thank you @The_Penniless_Author 🤗

TheSpineView Thanks for playing and happy Tuesday! 👍📖📚 8mo

@Butterfinger Here is the order of the Pendergast novels. I have Relic, a gift from @MaleficentBookDragon for a Litsy swap, which I‘ve yet to read. So I am reading them out of order, reading Two Graves for #Brazil. It‘d probably be a very good idea to read them in order because there appears to be a lot of back story. I thought it was the first in the series because that‘s how they‘re listed in Two Graves. Oh well. Relic is definitely next.

Butterfinger Thanks Karen. I'll take a screenshot. 12mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Butterfinger Personally I think the first three are the best. Relic is one of my favorite books. In this series I also really liked 12mo
Crazeedi I read the first three and never continued! And they were good! 12mo

Texreader @MaleficentBookDragon It‘s so silly but I get kind of giddy thinking about reading Relic, like a kid on Christmas Eve. Sure hope it stands up to my expectations and you make me very hopeful! 😁 12mo
Texreader @Crazeedi Awesome! I‘m looking forward to this adventure!! 12mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Texreader If you end up liking Relic I suggest their stand alone books (Thunderhead/Riptide/Ice Limit/Mount Dragon) as well as James Rollins' stand alone books like Subterranean or 12mo

Words can‘t describe how excited I am to get Relic! Although I‘m nervous that it says it will scare the hell out of me! Would be perfect for #scarathlon but I‘d never finish it in time. And what a lovely surprise to get the Bloody Chamber book! Thank you for all the goodies too @MaleficentBookDragon !! What a wonderful #allhallowsreadswap!!!

This is probably one of my absolute favorite series. The books are so engrossing, that although usually 400-500 pages, they fly by. Agent Aloysius Pendergast of the FBI is unlike any FBI agent you‘ve ever come across. He is mysterious, complex and enigmatic with an interesting family dynamic.

Andrew65 @Nute It has been great in expanding everyone‘s knowledge of books and series out there. Been great to see all the posts but added so many series to my TBR. At some point in the future I intend doing #Top20Standalones 1y
Andrew65 @Nute Relic wasn‘t quite what I expected and need to get back to this series. 1y
Mollyanna @Nute and @Andrew65 Relic is a bit different than the others in the series. We, the readers, don‘t quite know who the main guy is. Is it Pendergast or d‘Acosta? Reliquary is really where we start learning about Pendergast. 1y
Mollyanna @Nute I agree! I have found so many new series and realized that certain books were part of a series. I thoroughly enjoyed this, but my TBR has expanded to exploding levels 😫. 1y
Andrew65 @Mollyanna I do need to get back on this horse. 1y

#TBRChallenge #AudioBook #ABookThats
This was a delightfully dark and daring romp through the New York Museum of Natural History. Pendergast does somewhat steal the show with his steely confidence and southern charms, but Margo, Frock and Smithback hold there own.
The monster was a constant looming threat and it never really felt like we were safe from its influence, which really helped to hold a constant sense of suspense.
⬇️

TCLinrow The writing style reminded me a lot of Michael Crichton who is one of my favourite authors, which is a definitely a huge plus. I would recommend this book in a heartbeat. 1y

Finally, after all the fuss of lockdown and getting back to working in the office, I've been able to start unpacking my books into my little library/home office... now I just need to get my shelves put back together and get them loaded! Nothing like an #AudioBook to make DIY less stressful 😊

This was pretty good, but it didn‘t blow me away. I know this is a popular series, so I assume it improves as you get further along. It had some really creepy parts, so I‘m definitely continuing the series.

Bk14 of March is done. I know I should be reading off my #MountTBRShelvesOfDoom for the #MarchUnshelfing #challenge, but I couldn‘t resist reading the 1st page of this and then I got hooked. It‘s now 7am Saturday and I haven‘t been to sleep yet.It was so worth it,this was fabulous. Horrible murders start happening in NY Museum Of Natural History which seem to be done by something part animal. Agent Pendergast & Curator Margo Green are on the hunt.

Bk1 of my #QuarantineLibraryHaul is the 1st book in the Pendergast series by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child.I‘ve always meant to read this but never got around to it,guess this is a good time to catch up on old thriller/mystery series while the world stops.Our government is apparently announcing a shutdown for at least 2weeks tonight. The hubby went to the shops today & said they‘re deserted & most make you sanitise you‘re hands before entering😷

This was my first introduction to the writing duo of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. While I loved the genre of mystery and aspects of something more out there, I wasn‘t too impressed with this book. Don‘t get me wrong, it pulled me in enough to ensure that I would go in to read every book that they‘ve written. But my thoughts were that in certain parts of the book it felt as if the idea of the characters hadn‘t gelled. Who was the hero?

I loved this book. I can see why it‘s compared to Jurassic Park. It does have that kind of feel to it, but in a different way. I haven‘t seen the movie based on it so I can‘t say how it compares. All I know is that I can‘t wait to read more of the Pendergast series.

ChristieWitch Relic was one my favorite movies growing up. I've never read the book but it's been on my tbr forever lol 3y
LiterarySloth @ChristySevern it‘s good! There is a character in it that they don‘t include in the movie. I don‘t know why. He‘s a great character. I‘m really curious how they did the movie without him. 3y
ChristieWitch @LiterarySloth it usually happens that way, unfortunately lol given how old the movie is now I'm betting it doesn't follow the book very well, but sometimes that's okay 😏 3y
LiterarySloth @ChristySevern I‘m planning on watching it soon. Maybe on a day where I need to crochet instead of read. 3y

I was looking at goodreads and realized how much I‘ve read this month. NINE BOOKS! To be fair, a few of them were very short. Of course by short I mean 160-200 pages. I‘m about to start this. It will definitely carry into the new year, as I‘m making dinner and dessert for tomorrow and won‘t have much time to read!
