Every now and then, when I have the money, I'll get on Amazon and have a little ebook shopping spree. Here are the books I hauled yesterday:
Lately, I've been trying to familiarize myself with Kealan Patrick Burke's work since many of the reviewers on here and Goodreads who I trust love his stuff. I read The Turtle Boy near the beginning of the year but didn't really like it. It didn't feel like the story was long enough and the whole plot seemed to rely on coincidences.
But I still want to try more of Burke's work to see if that was just a bad book, so I thought I'd start here, with a short story collection revolving around the mysterious town of Milestone. I am a little bummed because Thirty Miles South Of Dry County is in this collection but you have to buy Currency Of Souls separately, which together are supposed to form a little series. Oh well, I'll read Thirty Miles and just hope I don't get confused. I also have Jack and Jill on my Kindle.
I'm reading this short story collection right now and loving it. I finished Blackwood's Baby last night and thought it was absolutely amazing, and now I'm a little ways into The Redfield Girls. I want to give this collection five stars already and I'm only twenty percent through.
I'm kind of scared to read these last two books, because then I won't be able to read about these characters anymore. I really hate it, but I still have to finish these books. I push them on horror fans who haven't read them yet.
This Darkfuse book looked terrific and I've yet to read any McBride so I'll start here.
I've heard a lot of interesting things about this collection and what it's about, so I thought I'd give it a try.
Buying books = happy Layton.
