Down the TBR Hole #6

Down the TBR Hole #6

The Books This week we are starting with 161 books on my Want to Read shelf. Let’s see how many books we can remove from that shelf, shall we? I’ve had this book on my Want to Read shelf since 2019. While the description looks good, I’m figuring if I haven’t picked it up by […]


Halloween Carnival Volume 4 ..

Halloween Carnival Volume 4 by Brian James Freeman

I have no words. This anthology in the Halloween Carnival series was terrible. Literally, the only story that was in any way particularly memorable was The Mannequin Challenge. Even that story wasn’t all that great. The Mannequin Challenge was the best story in the book. Even then, it seemed like I’d read it before – […]


Halloween Carnival Volume 3 ..

Halloween Carnival Volume 3 by Brian James Freeman

Ok, so this one was better than Volume 2, but not quite as good as Volume 1. But I will say, Halloween Carnival Volume 3 is a solid offering for horror fans and for those who prefer more tame Halloween stories. The Way Lost was one of my favorites out of Volume 3. I found […]


Halloween Carnival Volume Tw..

Halloween Carnival Volume Two by Brian James Freeman

While I loved Halloween Carnival Volume One, I wasn’t quite as impressed with Halloween Carnival Volume Two. To my idea, the best story in this batch of five stories was Mr. Dark’s Carnival by Glen Hirshberg. It added a twist at the end that I honestly didn’t see coming. I’m not sure why, but I […]


Book Review: Halloween Carni..

Book Review: Halloween Carnival Volume 1

Halloween is my favorite holiday. This is something that anyone who knows me will tell you. I am a Halloween fanatic. So when given the chance to review books with stories based on Halloween and Halloween traditions – and those books are horror novels, you can bet I jumped at that chance. Halloween Carnival Volume […]


Camino Island by John Grisha..

Camino Island by John Grisham

While I kind of panned the last John Grisham novel I’d read, it was more because while it involved law and lawyers, it wasn’t what I was expecting. This novel was a departure from what I recall John Grisham doing previously, but this novel worked. It really did work. The character development wasn’t completely there, […]


The Rooster Bar by John Gris..

The Rooster Bar by John Grisham

I’ll be honest, I haven’t read a John Grisham novel in years. I was really into his novels when I was in high school, but to be honest, after high school I kind of lost interest. I think the last time I’d read one of his novels was back in the early 2000s when I […]


City of Blades by Robert Jac..

City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett

City of Blades started out as a book I didn’t think I’d be able to get into. At first it just didn’t seem to be that interesting. I’m glad I stuck it out because if I hadn’t, I’d have missed one of the best books I’ve read in the last year! The second book in […]
