BOOKS FINISHED THIS WEEK:
I read a load of short stories this week!
The Twenty Days of Turin by Giorigo de Maria – I was disappointed with this book, I might have been really stupid reading it, but I just didn’t get it.
Basically Frightened by Vasily Pugh – I received this book from the author. It was a fun take on the dystopian genre.
The Black Cat by Edgar Allan Poe – I love a short story, especially if it’s horror! This one was disgusting!
The Red Room by H.G. Wells – holy scariness! This is a fantastic short story, really frightening!
The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell – another amazing short story I read this week! Eerie but also fun.
Anatomy of Innocence by Laura Caldwell & others – I finished this this afternoon, it’s a really amazing book about exonerated prisoners.
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison – didn’t like up to my expectations, but still a good and really grotesque dystopian short.
There Will Come Soft Rains by Ray Bradbury – melancholy and another dystopian short that I read this week! My least favourite of them all but still good for a short story!
The Veldt Ray Bradbury – another Bradbury novel but really good! I much preferred the to the other, very chilling.
BOOKS I’M PLANNING ON READING NEXT:
The Last Sin by K. L. Murphy – I have to read this one for a blog tour, but I’m looking forward to it!
Grimm Woods by D. Melhoff – I’ve actually got 25% the way through this and wasn’t loving it so put it down, but it’s also for a blog tour, so I’m going to give it another try.
BOOKS BOUGHT THIS WEEK:
Cut by Marc Raabe – after doing my declutter post this week, I f thought to look this up on Amazon quickly, and what do you know? It was only 99p!
Ghost Stories by The Telegraph – this is collection of the best ghost stories ever sent into The Telegraph, including their ghost story prize winner story, so this should be interesting as I can imagine they’ll mostly, if not all, be written by small time authors.
Angel Killer by Andrew Mayne – bought this because I wanted to get into a new detective series, here’s to hoping this one is worth my 99p.
19 Ghost Stories to Keep You up at Night by M R James – no idea who the author is, just liked the thought of more ghost stories.
Doll House by John Hunt – technically got this one free, thanks for the heads up BookBub!
A Judgement in Stone by Ruth Rendell – this is Janel’s fault! She recommended this book via a tag post so I just had to get it! Only £2 though!
The Wicked Boy by Kate Summerscale – this was half price on Amazon (only £4.50) and it’s a true crime novel about a murderous young kid! Sounds exactly like the stuff I like to read!
