May in Review
(Read: 3 / Reviewed: 2)
This past month I went on holiday with my other half, and it was, to say the least, an interesting trip. The best days I can easily pick out – the book shopping (check out my book haul) and the visit to Gauntlet Birds of Prey. If you find yourself anywhere near Knutsford, Cheshire within the UK, then I highly suggest it! So many good birbs!
As for reading this month, well, I decided to get into yet another long book, and books with five hundred plus pages tend to take up all my thinking time. I don’t regret it, it was an amazing read, but it causes the number of the month to be quite low!
The Sadist’s Bible by Nicole Cushing – After briefly skimming over some reviews, I decided to give this one a try; it was a quick read, and something graphic to get the month rolling. As I expected, things got pretty messed up toward the end, so it certainly didn’t disappoint in that regard! Just be warned right here and now, if you decide to read this, don’t be surprised if you reconsider your reading choices!
Wrath of the Ancients by Catherine Cavendish – This came to my attention through Horror Aficonados (such great people)! With the second installment of this series available, I wanted to start at the beginning. Whilst I found the writing itself to be top-notch, there were some story elements I could’ve done without.
NOS4R2 by Joe Hill – My, what a weird book! I purchased this one around February, and more than one person suggested I read it as soon as possible. This is the one I mentioned above; it was a bit long, but I very much enjoyed it. Who knew a concoction of Christmas, cars and bridges could be so darn wonderful. This was my very first book by Joe Hill, and it certainly won’t be the last.
Needful Things by Stephen King (BEST READ)
Erinyes by George Saoulidis (2016 Review) (WORST READ)
Do any of these tickle your fancy? Let me know!
Other than that, I wish you all a happy June!
