๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
Stranded at a Colorado rest stop with a would-be child kidnapper...in a hella snow storm.  Turns out this makes for a crazy suspenseful story.  With so many twists and turns, it made for an un-stoppable listen.  Sadly, though...for me...I felt like it just went on and on, and I started to lose interest in the MC's struggle to survive.  So much so that I had to rewind and re-listen to the last part of the story to see how it all played out.  I mean, ultimately, I was still invested in the overall story.  I do, however, believe that this could make for an excellent movie.

NO EXIT BY: TAYLOR ADAMS
NO EXIT a gripping thriller full of heart-stopping twists - William Taylor Adams

A truly chilling page-turner! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time with this gritty thriller. LOVED IT! This book surprised me. I love the way Darby evolved in a deliciously dark knight kind of way. She was undoubtedly a hero, but she also had to become a monster, in a sense, to fight against the real monster. Some twists I saw coming, but it didn't make them any less awesome, and others blindsided me in the best way. Highly recommend this one to fans of thrills and chills.

Nick was asked to join a team to get ill gained wealth.  They got double crossed and then his mates got killed. 

 

Now he got to find out who betrayed and got him on the hunt for those who betrayed him and his mates.  

 

While he is on the chase, met with good people who will help him to find out who are involved with the deal with Tailbans. 

 

A lot of chasing around and guns and car chase. 

 

Good read for those who prefer B action movie over romantic movie. Not great but Enjoyable.

Reading progress update: I've read 290 out of 400 pages.
Exit Wound - Andy McNab

Nick Stone was doing something out of character when he  participated in getting some gold out of a former war zone to line his own pocket. 

 

The action was sucessful but soon he was double crossed along with his mates. 

 

Soon the story go back to Nick working for the British interest again. 

 

Not the best story, but another good action B movie or moderately budgetted TV show of guns and explosion. 

 

Enjoyable read for those who prefer this type of action packed story.

Char's Horror Corner: Top Ten Novellas of 2018!
I'll Bring You the Birds from Out of the Sky - Brian Hodge
Wylding Hall - Elizabeth Hand
Blanky - Kealan Patrick Burke
Stirring the Sheets - Chad Lutzke
Rattus New Yorkus - Hunter Shea
Exit Strategy - Martha Wells
The Mirror of the Nameless - Leesa Wallace,Graeme Parker,Luke Walker
The Sea Dreams It Is the Sky: A Novella of Cosmic Horror - John Hornor Jacobs
Out Behind the Barn - Chad Lutzke,John Boden
October - Michael Rowe

Welcome to my Top Ten Novellas List!

 

This was a great year of reading here at CHC. I read a ton of novellas in 2018,

(as usual), and here are what I thought were the best of the best!

(These are books I read this year, They were not necessarily released this year.)

Click on the cover to read my review.

Let's get started!

 

I've adored the work of Brian Hodge for many years now, and thanks to my friend Andi, I now happily own a copy of this beautiful, dark novella. It's out of this world!

 

 I'll Bring You the Birds from Out of the Sky - Brian Hodge  

 

 

WYLDING HALL by Elizabeth Hand was a phenomenal ghost story in the perfect length. 

Just the way I like them, short, dark and creepy. 

 

Wylding Hall - Elizabeth Hand

 

 

Kealan Patrick Burke is one of my very favorite dark fiction authors. Sometimes in your face gritty and other times, subtle and grief ridden. In which category does BLANKY fall? You should read it and find out.

 

Blanky - Kealan Patrick Burke 

 

STIRRING THE SHEETS by Chad Lutzke is a beautiful and poignant novella and I just adored it. Mark my words people, Chad Lutzke is the REAL DEAL.

 

Stirring the Sheets - Chad Lutzke 

 

RATTUS NEW YORKUS 

I love me a good creature feature and this is definitely one of the best I've read this year! 

If you're not reading Hunter Shea, you should rectify that ASAP!

 

Rattus New Yorkus - Hunter Shea 

 

I read a lot more science fiction this year, and Martha Wells' Murderbot Series is definitely part of the reason why. This, the fourth novella in the series was my absolute favorite. I think the novellas got better with each entry. (I cannot get Booklikes to locate the copy of the book I reviewed, this is the cover of the audio.)

 

Exit Strategy - Martha Wells 

 

 

I've been reading the work of Luke Walker for a few years now and it's my opinion that he deserves to be more well known. I particularly enjoyed this book which featured insane creatures running around and a world that accept them. 

 

The Mirror of the Nameless - Leesa Wallace,Graeme Parker,Luke Walker

 

THE SEA DREAMS IT IS THE SKY was a deep,  dark novella featuring gorgeous prose. It was difficult to read at times, but also beautiful.

 

The Sea Dreams It Is the Sky: A Novella of Cosmic Horror - John Hornor Jacobs 

 

Chad Lutzke appears AGAIN on my list, this time co-writing with another favorite author of mine, John Boden. A creatively told tale that takes its time to unfold. And then when it does, your heart snaps. 

Out Behind the Barn - Chad Lutzke,John Boden 

 

Lastly, one of my favorite horror authors: Michael Rowe. (One that I wish would write more in the genre.) A respected author and journalist, OCTOBER blew my mind. Maybe it could blow yours too?

 

October - Michael Rowe 

 

Thanks for staying with me this far if you're still here. I appreciate you!

I hope you'll join me again at the end of 2019.
