The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis I received this book for free from Blogging for Books, all opinions are my own.  This is a perfect read for October! When I saw the cover on Blogging for Books, it caught my eye and looked like something that would put me on edge. While it isn't outright horror, it is still scary. The story follows a girl named Elka as she runs…

Dear Mr. M by Herman Koch All right, so I loved The Dinner, which was the first book of Koch's that I've read. I grabbed it when I was in SLO on vacation in California at a Barnes & Noble. It was up on the 'new' shelf or something and the cover just caught my eye, so I read the inner flap and it just sold it for me. I'm…

The Story of Fester Cat by Paul Magrs & Finders Keepers by Stephen King Did I cry? You bet I did. I cried within the first 20 pages. I actually had to stop reading cause I was in public, and I don't want to just burst into tears at a local Starbucks on my lunch break where the baristas know my drink. I should have known before I even started reading…

All Things Cease to Appear by Elizabeth Brundage & Midnight Sun by Jo Nesbo I love murder mysteries, even when they aren't super intense psychological thrillers with serial killers. This quieter story, looking at the darkness in people that leads to murder. You meet a whole cast of characters, some you love, some you feel bottomless pity for, and others you despise. You leave the book knowing that you were…

The Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King & Slade House by David Mitchell If you've been around for a while, you know that I'm a massive Stephen King fan. After reading his books I almost wanted to move to Maine because it's the focus of so many of his stories and he makes it seem like this magical place. Plus, I've visited before and I love me a good…

Prepare yourself for a breakfast with a bunch of serial killers! For October, of course I have to read some freaky books! Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King & American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis I've read so many books by Stephen King, his books occupy the most space on my bookshelves, actually.
