Monthly Rundown: October 2016

Posted November 3, 2016 by Bonnie in Monthly Rundown / 1 Comment

Book Read = 15

October was all about the horror (and an impromptu Harry Potter re-read). I had a plan for the month and while it wasn’t a 100% success, I’m still pleased with the books I was able to find the time to read. Although I was mega-slacking when it came to actually posting reviews. Oh well, it is what it is.

6589753Best of the Month: The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker ★★★★½
I read The Thief of Always earlier this year and loved it, knowing I wanted to read more of his works. This one popped up on sale yesterday for Kindle and I ended up reading it on Halloween (ending Ominous October with a bang) and WOW. Intense, gruesome, and definitely terrifying.32426

Least Favorite: Icebound by Dean Koontz ★★★
This one wasn’t terrible, but considering this one my first Dean Koontz I was expecting something far better. Maybe it just wasn’t the best one to read first.. I’ll still be giving him another shot sometime in the future.

Biggest Surprise(s): 
The Nest by Kenneth Oppel ★★★★ and Dead Souls by J. Lincoln Fenn ★★★★
Both of these were titles I knew little to nothing about going into them. Both left me extremely impressed (and massively creeped out) and seeking out the authors other works.

Biggest Disappointment: 
The Women in the Walls by Amy Lukavics ★★
I have some hang-ups when it comes to YA horror but I decided to still give this one a shot. Suffice it to say it just didn’t pan out well for me and wasn’t nearly as creepy as I had hoped.
