The Strain is the first book in The Strain Trilogy, and I am hooked enough to already have confirmed that the rest of the trilogy is available through my library’s audiobook app.
Since we started this blog in October and our inaugural post was the first book in the Mercy Thompson series, we thought it would be fun to review another Patricia Briggs book for our anniversary.
It’s October and in honor of the spookiest month of the year, I’ve decided to read a bunch of fantasy novels. Because my last review was an Adult Urban Fantasy (LINK to Hypnos), I decided to switch things up and read a Young Adult Fantasy next. Bound by Duty is the first book in a short series (yes, I read all three) about the main character, Amelia.
Shirley Jackson writes my favorite type of horror - creepy and ambiguous, relying largely on characters rather than violence or the supernatural.
For those of you who don’t know, I really like the Adult Urban Fantasy genre. I don’t read it very often because I tend to become immersed and forget about my other responsibilities...like eating...and sleeping...but when I find a new urban fantasy that appeals, I look for the right time in my life to think about nothing else before I get started. With Halloween near, I’m making the time! So, I pulled out Hypnos.

Happy Halloween Month! We both love Autumn and Halloween, but October has another distinction as well. It’s the month we started this blog! Yes, as of this month, Bathtub Book Club is officially 1 year old! We can say a few words and take some wobbly steps, but before you know it we’ll be knocking…
Today is International Podcast Day! I don’t listen to a ton of podcasts, but I did know that there are several podcasts that are based on books, have books based on them, or talk about book-related topics.
If you’re a fan of Roxane Gay, you should definitely check out Hunger.
On September 17th, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt released the first book of Alliances, a new series by Kat Rosenfeld and the late Stan Lee. If you've been reading the blog for a while, you might wonder about some of the weird "National Days" we spotlight. Truth is, we sometimes need help to narrow down which books we want to review, so we use the good old internet to find theme ideas. When I saw that today was National Comic Book Day, I knew I wanted to cover one of Stan Lee's last projects before he died. It meant I only had a week between the release date and this review, but it was worth it.
