If you know me, then you know I am a lover of horror. I can read any genre, I can watch any movie, but in the end, you'll always catch me knee-deep in horror. Zombies: Encounters with the Hungry Dead, edited and arranged by John Skipp is one that definitely satisfied me. I haven't read every single story- there are so many, but enough of them gave me enough to post a review.
This book is LOADED with horrific tale after tale after tale with death! I was very lucky- I found the book at V-Stock, a store that sells both new and used books for less than $15. I honestly believe it was in the wrong spot. The thing is, I'm attracted to large books and this book is huge. 638 pages of pure grossness, walking dead things and people running through apocalyptic streets.
There are variations of the monsters, coming from different time settings and some of every situation and the best part is, it's filled with pictures! Yes- each photo sets the themes and situations of the stories.
I've yet to finish the book, but it's not one that you sit and read from beginning to end. You have to savor these evil tales, plus like I said, the book is massive. Periodically, I pick it up the book and read a few. I haven't read one story that I didm't like yet- i'm in love with this book. Skip found talented authors who really know how to paint a picture, and fill your imagination with nightmarish scenarios the will haunt you.
If you're a horror fanatic, you will too! Next!📚

*Waves of the Spirit is next..
**Book is from my personal library.
I enjoy coloring. Mostly I color when my Ewoks are over for a visit, but I also color to relax- until my hand begins to ache! Paris Street Style is a beautiful coloring book that helps to relax. Pretty much, it's about style- hair styles, clothing style and shoes. Indian summers to saying good night and showing fashionable pj sets.and cute Parisian sayings.
I had to use Google Translate, since I know very little French, cut it didn't take from the lovely sketching. I love this book and I'll enjoy hours and hours of fun for a long time.
Below, I made a photo slideshow so you can see the wonderful photos I have to enjoy.📚
I was fortunate to receive this ARC through a Shelf Awareness newsletter that announced the drawing. I usually don't win, so when I was contacted by Judy Sheehan, the author of I woke Up Dead at the Mall and congratulated, I was thrilled! Now don't be turned off by the title. When I first saw the title and cover, I thought to myself, "Huh... the cover is rather ordinary and that title is weird!" But I put in for the drawing and BAM!
I got the book!
I also got a bookmarks, that I'll be sharing, but the story is about Sarah. A girl who literally died and woke up in Mall of America, a sort of Purgatory. No one could see her. No one could touch her and she had unfinished business. She met an odd woman, Bertha, who gave instructions and left Sarah alone to deal with her death until other young, deceased individuals arrived. Together, they learned the ropes of being dead, shared their stories and eventually... they were to move on. But Sarah wasn't ready- and she had a job to do and needed to use her 'Knowing' to get it accomplished!
*AudioReview & Listen!
Jason Werbeloff is an amazing author! I was lucky enough to gain access to his newsletter and later gifted to be a part of his audio chapters, small pieces of his November release, Obsidian Worlds- available at Amazon.com and other book retailers. This is, I believe, my fourth audio-share of his work. I really enjoyed this one and I am sure you will too. Down below, I've added the clip to this story: Falling for Q46f. Take a listen and see if you agree with my review. If you like Science Fiction, I have no doubt you'll enjoy it too.
I don't remember when I first saw The Haunting of Sunshine Girl, maybe on Barnes and Noble's website or even their shelves. All I knew was, the cover was unique, off in a way and the girl was lovely. I tend to gravitate towards pretty things... as marketing is supposed to incite, especially if there's a hideous creature, I'd have probably wanted it even more! LOL Then as the book sat on my shelf, in queue, I found out The Awakening of Sunshine Girl was on the way. So I pre-ordered it and waited. While waiting, I conducted research on Paige McKenzie and discovered: I live under a rock - she's so famous! (an internet sensation!)

When you find a book that makes you feel the character is your neighbor and you're just as involved with the storyline- you know it's good. That's what I discovered with Hope Toler Dougherty's Mars... with Venus Rising.
.Twenty-something Penn Davenport yearns for an exciting life in the big city and wants to shed the label of orphan that she’s worn for years. To achieve that dream, she must pass the CPA exam then move away from the two aunts who reared her after her parents died in a plane crash.
When John Townsend—full of life and the joy of living—moves to town, he rattles Penn’s view of herself, her life, and her dreams…which isn’t such a bad thing until she falls for him and discovers he’s a pilot.
Sound like anything you've read? Well, you haven't- this is a cute read and I think anyone who picks it up will not want to put it down.
