Like a lot of horror, it starts off strong and then fizzles a bit at the end. Build up is great, took me a minute to get into the writing style but I love how a mundane scene is being described and then the last sentence or last few words reveals it isn‘t at all ordinary. It makes for an eerie first half. Solid three star read. If you like reading ghost stories, I do recommend it. #ReadSpooky2023

Harry Dresden is a wizard. He‘s also a struggling PI. When gruesome paranormal murders take place, the Chicago PD calls on Harry to help solve the crime. That puts Harry on the radar of some nefarious criminals, and the White Council, the group responsible for overseeing the paranormal to ensure everyone is playing by the rules. Fast paced, action packed and necessary world building. Looking forward to the next book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5

Got up early, really early for a Sunday. Wanted to get some reviews done. #GhostCat is not willing to budge though. Guess it's #audioknitting o'clock for the moment.

Good thing I had book 13 of the Dresden Files ready.

This is the third book in The Monstrumologist series. I love this series and I hope that in 5 or 6 years my nephew is interested in horror so I can gift him these books and the same for my niece in 10 years or so. 🤞🏻
I don‘t think I mentioned it in my review of the second book, but Steven Boyer‘s narration is excellent. #Booked2023 #aboutamonster

Just a tiny bit sad to move on to the last book. #SeriesLove2023

The House on the Borderland | William Hope Hodgson

After finding weird fiction through authors like HP Lovecraft, I became interested in forerunners to the genre. Well, my first sampling of earlier authors was in William Hope Hodgson with his best known work, The House on the Borderland. Not sure of other's experience completely but I was really drawn in by the dark, surreal, dream like visuals more than dramatic narrative. But that satisfied me enough. Next by this author will be The Night Land.

Bookwomble This is one of my favourite books 😊 If you liked Borderland, you'll find The Night Land a trip! 16h
Lukey-Looloo @Bookwomble I did actually start reading it a while back before life got in the way. It won't be long until I pick it up again 😃 15h

Came for Kate Mulgrew‘s narration, stayed for the story. This was gripping, I wanted to just keep listening and altogether I finished it pretty quick. The audio was fire. I now wanna watch the series too!
Some parts were fairly graphic, and I did fast forward one particular scene. People who have to watch out for triggers might wanna skip this one, or at least look at its page on The Storygraph.

This one was so good! I‘m really glad I waited to read this until the second book was already out. So. . . Off I go to start book two.

I think I liked the idea of this book more than I liked the actual book. The pace was a bit too slow for me.

So, this was a reread for me. A college me favorite. Holds up. A little dated in terms of what YA used to be, but back then, YA was actually written for teenagers. The ending is just so… *chefs kiss* Also, first book of the year.
