Gun Machine | Warren Ellis

Ellis' insane novel begins with NYPD Detective John Tallow uncovering a hidden room filled with firearms used in unsolved cold cases. I really enjoyed this unusual procedural.

Biting the Bullet | Jennifer Rardin
post image

This is book three in a series about Jaz Parks. She‘s the assistant to CIA assassin who also happens to be a vampire. Back when I read fantasy all the time, I enjoyed this series for what it is. Sadly, the author passed away young, and before finishing the series. 🧛🏻‍♀️🧛🏻‍♂️

There are too many books on my shelf that I haven't read yet, so this month I'm #bitinthebullet and making a serious effort to get through this stack. Picked out ones that are on the spooky side too that should work nicely for #screamathon.

Robothugs Love it! It seems we‘re all trying to go themed this month. So far I have fallen off that wagon on the first day. 😂 I believe in you, though! 🙌🏻 1y
Cinfhen I‘m liking that stack 😍😍and I failed miserably at the book buying ban for September BUT I did read (mostly) what I own. I made one exception, my friend loaned me and it was totally worth it! 1y
Linsy I‘ve been eyeing We We‘re Villains. 👀 1y

#OctoberXFiles #day1 #BitinTheBullet This long weekend in Sydney I finally bit the bullet and hopefully kicked my #bookslump‘s arse for good. Over the past three days I‘ve started & finished The Clockmakers Daughter, Neverworld Wake & The Hoarder, and am so far, 100pg into a fourth book, The Corset. This has been a great reading weekend!

Soubhiville Yay! 1y
LeahBergen I need The Corset! 👏🏻 1y
Cinfhen Woohoo!!! Yay and all those books look awesome!!!! Going to check out your reviews 😘😘 1y

Riding the Bullet | Stephen King
post image

Although I read this 8 years ago, parts of it are really stuck in my mind. Not one of my highest rated King pieces, but it‘s worth a listen. #OctoberXFiles #bitinthebullet

Cinfhen I‘m not sure I‘m ready for another SK yet 🙄 1y

A soldier who served in the Iraq war writes about his experiences and how they continue to impact him to give civilians an understanding of what it is like to be a combat vet. My husband recommended this one - on my tbr #bitinthebullet #octoberxfiles

TheBookStacker My boyfriend loved this but I still haven‘t gotten around to reading it. 1y
Cinfhen This was a good read...nice choice and a good reminder as Veteran‘s Day is coming up... 1y

Laidlaw | William McIlvanney
post image

I saw this one on my shelves and it seemed fitting for #bitinthebullet.

This is the first in a series about Jack Laidlaw, a detective in Glasgow. It sounds perhaps comparable to the Henry Hole series, although admittedly I haven‘t read it yet. I bought it only because it‘s a Europa. #noshame And I mean, it says world noir on the cover l, which sounds pretty effing awesome.


JazzFeathers I would buy it just for the cover 😍 1y
Cinfhen I‘m intrigued 💕🙌🏻 1y
Mdargusch I‘m intrigued too. 1y
