Halloween Reading…

Hi Everyone,

How do you do Halloween? I prefer to keep mine light-hearted and fun. I don’t like scary movies or gore. Every few years, I get in the mood for a bone-chilling read. Let’s just say, I am still traumatized by Stephen King’s Nightmares and Dreamscapes. Frogs…

These Halloween mood cycle has been happening for most of my life. There was a book that I checked out from the library, a murder mystery, when I was a child. I set it down one night, because I spooked myself. (I read everything with a flashlight under the covers.) I never finished it. This book still “haunts” me to this day, because I WANT to finish it. Every few years, I will get the urge to read it and I research to my wits end, trying to figure out what the book was, so I could finish it. I remember it was blueish/grey, had a haunted hotel on the cover and the synopsis had to do with a room being off limits, because of multiple deaths.

This year, I have been researching this childhood book, but I wanted something thrilling. Yesterday, while at work, a book came in the mail called Behind Closed Doors. Well, let’s just say the late night, bone-chilling, read-a-thon started! Whew, this has been an epic psychological thriller. I had to physically set the book down and I look forward to finishing it tonight. I hope the ending is as good as the beginning. I also have a military suspense book lined up and I will be finishing the spooky middle grade book, Seraphina and the Twisted Staff. I started it in the summer, but life intervened and I had to set it aside for a couple of months.

So how do you prefer your Halloween reads?

Either spooky or fun, I hope your Halloween is full of reading treats!!!

Let’s Discuss…

Hi Everyone,

Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to all those who lost their lives, defending our freedoms.

Last month’s Read with Ariesgrl was a bit of a disappointment, thanks to Barnes and Noble not sharing the final chapter in their serial read selection. For the month of June, I decided to dive into my never-ending wish list to find a good suspense/mystery read. I have narrowed it down to The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry and Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. Both titles are the first in a series and each have their own unique spin on suspense. We have a couple of days left before June 1st, to decide. So which one of these titles sounds like a fun June read to you?

Personal Shelves Review

It can be difficult to read a book from an app on my computer, so several weeks ago, when there were fireworks and I needed my Nook to play Ozzy’s calming music at night, I was wide awake and decided to read an ebook that was on my Nook. My friend Dana, who you may remember designed my amazing logo, recommended the author Kim Harrison to me. A while back, I downloaded the first book in the series, while it was on sale. Here are my thoughts:
