October 2020 TBR list: last month was so successful I read all 7 books ; I decided to do it again and add another 7 and knock out some horror books I haven’t gotten too. This month will be spooktackular.
Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir is the sequel to Gideon the Ninth a book I read last month. Lesbian necromancer got me intrigued, but the great story and world building had me really excited for the next book. Gideon’s love hate relationship with Harrow made the last book work so well, so with Harrow taking the center stage, things could get interesting. I’m more than half way done with this book I went in a direction I wouldn’t have predicted. I’ll let you know if it was a good or bad decision soon.
If It Bleeds by Stephen King it is rare when I read a Stephen King book in the year it was published. This book is a 4 book novella much like his popular book Different Seasons. A story in this book acts as a stand-alone sequel to the Outsider, a recent Stephen King novel I quite enjoyed. Stephen almost always delivers the chills
William Gibson’s Alien 3 by William Gibson is a graphic novel by Dark Horse Comics that illustrates Gibson’s original screenplay for Alien 3. This story continued off Aliens the movie with all the last surivors of the film making it, where in the original movie only Ellen Ripley survived the journey and lands on a prison planet. I really want to check out the audible where stars Lance Hendrickson and Michael Biehn do the voice of their original characters.
Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Manicalco is the first book of a new series, that has the Tag lines of Two Sisters. One brutal murder. A quest for vengeance that will release hell itself… And an intoxicating romance. I like how Maniscalco write murder and the macabre. I just finished her first four book series Stalking Jack the Ripper, so I was happy to get approved by Netgalleyf or the advance readers copy that is published 10-27-20.
Black Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse is a book that is getting a lot of buzz and the start of a new science fiction series. I don’t know a whole lot about it, but it is inspired by pre-Columbian Americas with prophecies, politics and dark magic. This is another advance reader copy from Netgalley that is released on October 13th 2020.
Goosebumps: The Werewolf of Fever Swamp by R. L. Stine is Goosebumps book 14 on my quest to read and review all the Goosebumps books. This is a Book I don’t know too much about, I bet it has that original twist that only Stine could dream up.
The Saturday Night Ghost Club by Craig Davidson is set in the 8o’s Canada with the tag line of Stranger Things meets Stand by Me, I’m instantly in and have to experience it. It’s getting good reviews and looks like a lot of fun.
