My Haul for the week of Jan. 18 – 24, 2015
Usually my reading and reviewing tastes lean toward Romance in any genre. It’s easy to find a love story just about anywhere. But this week I went looking for specific novels for a Challenge I’m taking part in, so my picks are not the usual ones for me. 🙂 My haul isn’t huge this week. But what I did pick up I’m looking forward to.
The Watchers by Dean Koontz
“From a top secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose…Bestselling author Dean Koontz presents his most terrifying, dramatic and moving novel: The explosive story of a man and a woman, caught in a relentless storm of mankind’s darkest creation…”
I entered a Horror Reading Challenge last week. And ever since I’ve been trying to remember the horror classics that I once read constantly. Dean Koontz’s The Watchers came to mind. I loved the book, but details were sketchy so I decided to pick up a Kindle edition. (the nice part is that this covers another re-read challenge too – love it when that happens)
Rushed by Brian Harmon
“Eric can’t remember the recurring dream that keeps waking him in the middle of the night with an overwhelming urge to leave, yet he spends each day feeling as if he desperately needs to be somewhere. With no idea how to cure himself of this odd compulsion, he decides to let it take its course and go for a drive, hoping that once he proves to himself that there is nowhere to go, he can return to his normal life. Instead, he finds himself hurled headlong into a nightmare adventure across a fractured Wisconsin as the dream reveals itself one heart-pounding detail at a time.”
Any time I’m on the Kindle pages at Amazon I have to check out the “free” book downloads. It’s often a great way to read the start of a series or a new to me author. I found Rush (Book 1) and that qualifies as horror read number 2, plus new to me author challenge too.
And finally, also at an amazing “free” price I picked up 13 Paranormals which I realize will be the lead-in story to 13 paranormal series. But that’s okay, it gives me a chance to find out if I want to buy any of the rest of the series novels.
That’s it for this week. Not a big haul, but enough to keep me reading late into the night when most Horror and Paranormal novels would take me anyways. 🙂
