Nightmare City

Halloween is fast approaching! So, in the spirit of the season, I decided to read a thriller that includes zombies, automatons, cyborgs, alchemy, and people with mutation-caused fishy qualities.

The Strain

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.

The Bus on Thursday

I found The Bus on Thursday on yet another “Read More Women” list on Electric Literature. It looked intriguing, so I did a little research. I kept seeing mash-up descriptions like ”Bridget Jones crossed with the Shining,” “Where’d you go Bernadette meets the Turn of the Screw,” and “Bridget Jones meets The Exorcist in Twin Peaks.” I love almost all of these things, so I figured this would be a good one to check out.
