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.

Abigale Hall

Apparently, every book I read this month is going to have at least a reference to the second World War. This is the second book set (partially) in London directly after World War II (If you missed my Loitering with Intent review, check it out), and H is for Hawk talked a bit about the impact of the war as well.
