Charlene, you make that novella by Curran sound pretty spooky. I really enjoyed Resurrection:Zombie Epic and BIOHAZARD by Tim. Pretty graphic zomibe & mutant thrillers. I might have to check this out.

On Lesley's recomendation, I read The Grifters. I liked it. It's not my usual cup of tea, but it's well written and surprising. Most of the characters are rather nasty, so you get to root against everone.

In that case, you may well enjoy Fear Me (Delirium Novella Series) as well as Skin Medicine. I thought both of them were excellent! (Neither of these is a zombie novel though.)

Charlene, I have Skin Medicine already on my Kindle....just have not "gotten around to it" yet. Darn, your recommendations are usually pretty good (we seem to like many of the same books (most of the time)), so I just may break down and order Fear Me (Delirium Novella Series). Not a zombie story? I will have to check my Kindle's owner manual and see if I am allowed to read a non-zombie horror story........(do they make them?). Ha! Oh yeah, BIOHAZARD is NOT a zombie story. Gross mutants and all, but no zombies. Tim is an excellent horror writer.

I hesitate to mention, but I am currently reading a zombie/special forces novella: Arisen, Book Two - Mogadishu of the Dead. I am loving it, but I am open to new terrors.

P.S. I did notice that the publishers are now offering Resurrection:Zombie Epic as a 10-part novella/short story. I loved the LONG epic story as Tim wrote it. As the title states - Epic.

I just read When Horses Had Wings. It was okay. Just okay.

David, I have BIOHAZARD but I haven't been able to get to it. And Tim IS an excellent horror writer. :)

I'm almost 20% into Dastardly Bastard and so far it's pretty good. It will be interesting to see where this strange story is going to go.

Finished The Forgotten Affairs of Youth (Isabel Dalhousie Mysteries (Hardcover)) [ THE FORGOTTEN AFFAIRS OF YOUTH (ISABEL DALHOUSIE MYSTERIES (HARDCOVER)) ] By McCall Smith, Alexander ( Author )Dec-06-2011 Hardcover ; a DTB which I checked out from our library. Really enjoyed it; a cozy mystery although to be honest his books are usually more about how the characters react with each other and events in their lives.

I'm on the last chapter of The Dark Horse: A Walt Longmire Mystery, the more of this series I read the more I fall in love with Walt Longmire and Craig Johnson. A very good thriller. Next up The Haunting of Hill House. I've never read this but heard so many good things. I borrowed it from the library because the >$14 cost seemed ridiculous for an older book. Then I have Stake & Eggs (A CACKLEBERRY CLUB MYSTERY) and It Looked Different on the Model: Epic Tales of Impending Shame and Infamy on deck and I'm also reading Thriving in Adulthood with Asperger's Syndrome and a travel Oregon book. So many books so little time!

I finished the latest in the Bubba Snoddy series by C.L. Bevill: Bubba and the Mysterious Murder Note. It was as enjoyable as the others. There were some typo and grammatical errors, but they didn't get in the way of the story.

I love Alexander McCall Smith, especially the #1 Ladies Detective and the Corduroy Mansions series. As you say, it's all about the character interaction, and he has such a great sense of humor.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 7, 2013 5:23:58 PM PST
Susan, is it your first time reading Haunting of Hill House? It was SO creepy!

Posted on Feb 7, 2013 6:19:48 PM PST
Soon to finish:

No Matter What

Just purchased (as it just came out today) and started the first few pages:

Upstaged (Gus LeGarde Mysteries)

The later is part of an outstanding series I have been reading. Neither were free.

I agree, but I enjoy it as a really good reference for reading suggestions.

I'm reading Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo, and Me: A Graphic Memoir from the library.

The last time I read a John Grisham book was when I read The Broker. That book is on my top 10 worst-books-ever list. It was more of a travel log of Italy than a legal thriller/mystery. It read like he wanted to vacation in Italy and made it a business trip by writing a book that took place in Italy which had nothing to do with the story. Wel-l-l-l, recently I hesitately borrowed The Litigators from the library. It is actually pretty good but it reminds me of his book The Rainmaker (down-on-his-luck-lawyer/class action lawsuit) which I liked a lot. Haven't finished "The Litigators" yet though. Today, I got a notification from the library that The Racketeer by John Grisham was waiting to be downloaded and so I downloaded it. The Racketeer will be next on my reading list. I read a couple of chapters and it wasn't bad.

Just finished The Round House by Louise Erdrich. Have intended to read this highly acclaimed author for some time and can't say why I waited so long. Loved this book-- the characters, the story, the "mystery" and her narrative style.

I read John Grisham's The Brethren and thought that was his worst. I couldn't even finish it. It was boring.

Candide by Voltaire - free public domain. Written in 1759 by this French philosopher and tells the quick but highly adventurous tale of our hero Candide. Short and to the point chapters of each major segment of his journey thru life. Filled with many catastrophes - ships sink, regional battles, earthquakes, rapes, murder, acts of the Spanish Inquisition etc. Still reading so not sure how it turns out. Has active footnotes. Make me feel "well read"!

Susan, I agree with you about the price of The Haunting of Hill House (Penguin Classics); it's way too high for such an old book. I'm glad you were able to find it at your library. I may end up doing the same thing; my library doesn't own it in Kindle format, but does have DTB copies.

Should the Isabel Dalhousie Mysteries be read in order?

I just started The End of Your Life Book Club. I'm only two chapters in, but I'm in awe! He mentions The Etiquette of Illness: What to Say When You Can't Find the Words. This sounds like an excellent book to read and share as needed.
I'm rambling and for that I apologize but, I think this book will stick with me for a while.

Beverly says:
I agree, Catherine! I marked so many pages in this book you'd think it was a reference book. The End of Your Life Book Club is one of my favorite books so far this year.

Hi Beverly,
I'm going out now to buy a hard copy of The End of Your Life Book Club and a highlighter!
