Bookish randomness...


Richard Montanari's second novel, The Skin Gods, does not disappoint. This page-turning thriller is as layered and suspenseful as The Rosary Girls. I really like Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano, his two main homicide detectives, and I can't wait to read the rest of this series. (Luckily for me, there are at least six more books to go!)






Check out these clever and fun grammatical tees. The autocorrect one totally made me laugh. You can find them all at Cents of Style.





Recently checked out of the library:
The Shining by Stephen King ('cause it's that time of year!)
Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte
They Came To Baghdad by Agatha Christie
A Kiss Before Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton
Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey ('cause ghost stories also go with October!)
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Am also in the mood for:




Because I like these classic monster movies, especially the black-and-white ones starring Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, and Boris Karloff.  What about you? Got any favorite monster movies that I should add to my October monster movie viewing? 


Happy Reading...and Viewing...in October!

  7. I think my favorite spooky film is An American Werewolf in London. Oh, and don't forget the Northern Exposure Halloween episode, Jules et Joel.

  8. Those t-shirts are awesome! I love monster movies and the classic ones are my faves. If you want something a bit scarier then The Omen is chilling!

  10. I have enjoyed the Montanari books I've read, including The Skin Gods. His books are very dark but so good!
