Read of the Town: Revival by Stephen King

Let me tell you, no one terrifies me more than a Stephen King novel. He terrifies me in literature the way Alfred Hitchcock does on the big screen. They just “get” how to infiltrate the reader (or viewers) mind so easily that before you know it, you’re scared out of your mind and can’t seem …

Read of the Town: Dorothy Must Die Series by Danielle Paige

I realize it’s supposed to be a Trilogy, but when you include the 2 digital prequels, it’s much more than just a Trilogy. This is actually the first time I’m reading an “e-book” because I loved the first, Dorothy Must Die, book so much. I’m sure, like the Veronica Rossi digital books, these novella’s will …

Read of the Town: Beijing Bastard by Val Wang

Two things I’m learning to love about newly released and coming soon books: Titles & Covers! Both are amazingly true about THIS books title and the cover. Based on both I feel I must get my hands on it and read it cover to cover, with hopes that the story is good, but we’ll get …

Read of the Town: Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix

Quirk Books has done it AGAIN! I’m a little biased because I I’m a HUGE fan of anything Quirk Books related. I don’t own everything they’ve published but my list is growing. I’m in the middle of their Last Policeman Series, I’m caught up on the Miss Peregrine series, to mention but a few. I …

Read of the Town: Egg & Spoon by Gregory Maguire

I’m nominating this book as one that, if it isn’t already, SHOULD BE at the forefront of everyone’s minds! Released on September 9th, 2014 The title leaves a lot of mystery behind what this could possibly be about, but isn’t that part in parcel to the magic of reading? It’s all in the discovery. At …

Read of the Town: Maleficent (Adaptation) by Elizabeth Rudnick

It cannot be denied, I absolutely L-O-V-E the movie Maleficent! I can prove it since I’ve already seen in 4 times in the movie theater. After the 4th time however, I promised myself I would refrain from seeing it again. I need to hold onto my finances to purchase the Blu Ray when it is …

Read of the Town: A Grimm Warning (TLoS #3)

Chris Colfer, who many know as Kurt Hummel from the once popular television show Glee, is also an amazing writer. I must admit I was a bit apprehensive at first to read his book because I didn’t think it would be very good. Boy was I wrong! And I know, there has been some contention …

Read of the Town: The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

I’ve got to say I’m still really pissed off that someone within her agents firm let the cat out of the bag about the real identity of the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. I understand why J.K. Rowling did it. There’s been a lot of question about whether or not she was the real author of the …
