SON OF HANOVER BLOCK by Gregor Xane
Son of Hanover Block (The Hanover Quartet Book 3) - Gregor Xane

A young boy falls down on the playground and is diagnosed with a brain tumor. That was probably the best day of his life, because it's all downhill from there.

 

The beginning of this, the third book in the series, was completely horrific and off the wall. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it got triply worse. I didn't know what was going on, but I trusted Gregor Xane to put it all together and he eventually did. Mostly.

 

The originality of this series cannot be impeached, I've never read anything like it. I thought a beginning so different from the first two books breathed some fresh air into this installment and that was appreciated. We also got to learn more about the overarching story and I think that's where the 4th book is going to tie everything up.

In the meantime, I cannot help myself from staring at these covers and asking myself WTF? What will the fourth one look like?

 

Highly recommended!

Son of Hanover Block (The Hanover Quartet Book 3) - Gregor Xane
After the People Lights Have Gone Off - Stephen Graham Jones
Leviathan Wakes - James S.A. Corey

Today, I'm reading SON OF HANOVER BLOCK by Gregor Xane and I'm still making my way through AFTER THE PEOPLE LIGHTS HAVE GONE OFF by Stephen Graham Jones. Lastly, I'm listening to LEVIATHAN WAKES by James S.A. Corey. What are you reading?

 

Today, for the first time ever, I am not employed and my husband isn't either. 

However, we're both healthy,  our extended families are well, and the kitties are too. 

I have a friend that is in ICU right now fighting hard and I'm pulling for him. 

 

I hope my fellow Booklikers are well.

The Fisherman - John Langan
Grind Your Bones to Dust - Nicholas Sparks
The Immaculate Void - Brian Hodge
Hollow Kingdom - Kira Jane Buxton
Rattlesnake Kisses - John Boden,Robert Ford
Brides of Hanover Block (The Hanover Quartet Book 2) - Gregor Xane
In the Valley of the Sun: A Novel - Andy Davidson
A Penny For Your Thoughts - Matt Hayward,Robert Ford
The Worst is Yet to Come - S.P. Miskowski
Patient Zero - Ray Porter,Jonathan Maberry

Here is my listing of the novels that I enjoyed most in 2019.

Click the titles if you'd like to read my review.

 

 THE FISHERMAN by John Langan. Not only is this my favorite book of the year, it's one of my favorite books of all time and a great example of cosmic, quiet horror.

 

GRIND YOUR BONES TO DUST by Nicholas Day.

Nicholas Day is a new-to-me author and this novel blew me away. 

Beautifully written, dark and chaotic-Mr. Day is one to watch.

 

THE IMMACULATE VOID by Brian Hodge.

I've been a fan of his work for years and books like this are the reason why. 

If you're a horror/dark fiction fan, you need to be familiar with Mr. Hodge.

 

HOLLOW KINGDOM by Kira Jane Buxton.

This was a phenomenal debut novel. It's not even really horror, but it defies neat labels. It's a tale of the zombie apocalypse from the point of view of a domesticated crow named Shit Turd. Yep. Shit Turd. This book will touch you and if it doesn't, you should see a doctor because something is wrong with you.

 

RATTLESNAKE KISSES by Robert Ford and John Boden.

A short novel, but there's a lot of feeling packed in there, as well as some funny, bloody laughs.

 

BRIDES OF HANOVER BLOCK by Gregor Xane.

Probably the most off the wall book I've read this year. Erotic, gross, funny and creepy all at once-I can't wait for the next installment!

 

IN THE VALLEY OF THE SUN by Andy Davidson.

This was another new to me author I discovered this year. I adored this book and the subtlety of it. It's a beautifully written story about...? The author never says the word and I won't either. (Now if the publisher would just approve me for his next book that'd be great!  I hope you're reading this MCD x FSG Originals!)

 

A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS by Robert Ford and Matt Hayward.

This one gets the 2019 award for the funniest moment in prose. I'm still laughing about it.

 

THE WORST IS YET TO COME by S.P. Miskowski.

A tragically under-read author who writes scary, quiet horror that gets under your skin. 

 

THE JOE LEDGER SERIES by Jonathan Maberry, read by Ray Porter.

No link because I've reviewed the books individually, but I've listened to this entire series this year, (except for the very last one). These audio books have helped me through a very tough time. I sometimes wonder if I would have made it through at all, without Joe Ledger keeping me company. Bravo to both the author and the narrator, because together? They are an unbeatable team.

 

Honorable Mention in Audios:

The Don Winslow series that started with THE POWER OF THE DOG and ended with THE BORDER. What a powerful and emotional ride these books were. Well researched and if you think about it? Some of the scariest books out there, not because they're horror books, but because they're based on some real life events. 

Ray Porter reads these too and he is simply outstanding.

BRIDES OF HANOVER BLOCK by Gregor Xane
Brides of Hanover Block (The Hanover Quartet Book 2) - Gregor Xane

BRIDES OF HANOVER BLOCK can be summarized in two words: Messed. Up. !!!!!

 

Messed up is not really my first choice of phrasing, but it's one that Goodreads and Amazon will both allow. BRIDES picks up months after the events in HANOVER BLOCK. Where that book focused on the men in a certain neighborhood and their weird backyard appearances, this one focuses on the women in a certain neighborhood and their weird INDOOR appearances.

 

What is it that appears, exactly? All I can say is look at the covers of both books. Done?

Now you know as much I do..          

What can I say without spoiling anything? These books are strange, erotic, and strangely erotic. They are sick and weird and did I mention erotic? Ok then-sick, weird, and (one more time!) erotic. These books are not for the fainthearted. After all the strange erotica, then come some murders, some guys in weird uniforms with gas masks, and a dude with some kind of industrial fog machine in a truck. (I told you it was weird.)

 

That said, halfway through this quartet of books we have been led through a compelling, intriguing, weird tale and I just cannot wait for the next one!

 

My HIGHEST recommendation!

*Many thanks to the author for the signed paperback he sent me, in exchange for my honest feedback. This is it!*
