Hiding out and getting in a little reading before my work day starts. I am impatiently waiting on the “sitting on the back deck with an adult beverage and a book” season. Winter can suck it. 🤣

JacqMac I am impatiently waiting for that, too. 4mo

Flicker in the Dark | Stacy Willingham

I‘ve been in a reading slump since the last week of November. I think I have read maybe 3 books since then. This one feels like it‘s going to be a quick read so maybe I‘ll get over the hump soon. How is everyone doing? I haven‘t been very active here lately and I miss the Litsy family. ❤️

ShyBookOwl I had quite a few reading slumps last year. It was frustrating. To pull myself out, I'd usually try listening to an audiobook of an old favourite I'd only done in text. A book I knew I could count on, but a new experience of it. Good luck! 5mo
wanderinglynn I too faced several reading slumps last year. I reread some faves and got into romance—a genre I had never really previously read. But I found the characters‘ journeys hopeful and the happily ever afters were what I needed. I also found that audiobooks helped because I could listen to a story while doing something else. 5mo
marleed Welcome back! I change genres and reading formats (audio, print, ebook) often and that really helps me. 5mo

The Collective: A Novel | Alison Gaylin

My BOTM picks for November. #botm

blurb
DeeLew
post image

I preordered this novella mostly based on the cover art. It was incredibly hyped on social media and it ended up falling short of most people‘s expectations. I personally did enjoy it but wish it would have been a full length novel. This almost felt like a rough draft or outline of a fantastic novel.

Usher's Passing | Robert R. McCammon
post image

Did anyone take advantage of the buy 2 get 1 free sale at Target last week? I bought Night Shift, The Rust Maidens, and December Park. Then ordered one book from amazon. Then I made the mistake of browsing eBay where I found a signed copy of Usher‘s Passing. Now I seriously have to put myself on a book buying ban. 😬

amywithbooks I just read December Park and LOVED it!! 8mo

My Heart Is a Chainsaw | Stephen Graham Jones
post image

Last year when everyone was raving about The Only Good Indians, I felt terrible because I could not get through it. I just couldn‘t connect to the story and the writing style. Then I read the premise for My Heart is a Chainsaw and I thought this would be better. Well, about 100 pages in I thought I was going to DNF this one as well. I decided to stick it out and I‘m glad I did because this was magnificent. Going to pick up Only Good Indians again

ReadingEnvy This author writes in so many subgenres, you just have to try them until one works. ;) 9mo

Laura Purcell is kind of a modern day Daphne du Maurier. This is my second of her books and I loved it almost as much as The Silent Companions. Creepy gothic story. 4/5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️

I love Darcy Coates! This is one of my birthday purchases. My man always gets me a gift card because he can‘t keep up with which books I have or don‘t have.

BrittanyReads I've never read her, but want to! What's a good title to start with?? 11mo
DeeLew @BrittanyReads I have really liked everything of hers but Haunting of Ashburn House is probably a great start. Creepy gothic horror without any graphic violence. 🖤 11mo
BrittanyReads Sounds perfect! I love gothic stories! Thank you ☺️ 11mo

Does it ever drive you crazy that Amazon doesn‘t seem to care about books? I have been getting books that look like they threw them on the ground and stepped on them. I‘ve gotten better quality books from thrift stores! I‘m looking forward to getting into this one though.

This book. Wow. It is a gritty crime novel with extreme violence and a dark story line. My heart was racing and I couldn‘t turn the pages fast enough. At the same time, I wasn‘t sure if I could finish it, but I am so glad I did. What an incredible story.

The first true crime book I ever read was Helter Skelter. I read it in high school and I was both horrified and fascinated. I remember thinking that Vincent Bugliosi, the prosecuting attorney, was a hero. The case he laid out about the crazy motive seemed so far fetched it‘s hard to believe he got the convictions. This newer book, researched over twenty years casts some doubts on Bugliosi‘s case. There‘s no doubt of Manson‘s guilt but... wow!

I am loving this book. Robert McCammon has become one of my favorite horror writers. I bought this first book club edition off of eBay. It gives me that cozy feel of reading library books in the 80s. ❤️ The story is not what I expected and I LOVE it!

Sorry for the blurry low light photo but here is my first book of 2021. Curled up with this lovely little book right after midnight. It was wonderful but left me wanting more. I loved The Witches of New York and I hope McKay plans to write more stories about Eleanor, Adelaide, and Beatrice. Love them!
