Your Right to Be Rich: Napoleon Hill's Proven Program for Prosperity and Happiness
Your Right to Be Rich: Napoleon Hill's Proven Program for Prosperity and Happiness - Napoleon Hill

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can have as much of the multi-million-dollar luxurious cars, you can have as much of the multi-million-dollar luxurious mansions, you can have as much of the multi-million-dollar luxurious yachts, and you can have as much of the multi-million-dollar successful businesses under your thumb, my friend, and yet still be the poorest person in the whole wide world.

 

And you may not have as much of the multi-million-dollar luxurious cars, you may not have as much of the multi-million-dollar luxurious mansions, you may not have as much of the multi-million-dollar luxurious yachts, and you may not have as much of the multi-million-dollar successful businesses under your thumb, my friend, and yet still be the richest person in the whole wide world,

 

for the true riches in life come from within and not from without, true riches come from what's inside of you and not from what's outside of you.

 

True riches come from your happiness, your love, your humility, your compassion, your generosity, your creation, your respect, and your kindness, and from the beauty of your mind, the beauty of your heart, and the beauty of your soul,

 

and not from greed, money, power, obsession, destruction, thirst, hunger, and disrespect,

and anything else that has immense potential to destroy your mind, to destroy your heart, and to destroy your soul.

 

Napoleon Hill knew this, for he was told this by the great Andrew Carnegie himself. And he shared this with his own readers in his own way, because he wanted us to discover this secret on our own, without his help. He didn't want to show this secret to us, he wanted us to see it on our own. He wanted us to see what it truly takes to become successful someday. And for that I'm going to be grateful to him for as long as I shall remember the impact his writings had on me and for as long as I shall remember his name, because his writings and the secrets he's shared within his works have completely changed and transformed my life.

Halloween Bingo Preparty-New Releases- A Little Late!
Full Throttle: Stories - Joe Hill
Violet - Scott Thomas
Slash (Fiction Without Frontiers) - Hunter Shea
A Book of Bones: A Charlie Parker Thriller: 17. From the No. 1 Bestselling Author of THE WOMAN IN THE WOODS - John Connolly
A Lush and Seething Hell: Two Tales of Cosmic Horror - John Hornor Jacobs,Chuck Wendig
Twilight Man - Koren Shadmi

 

I have a little bit of time today, so I thought I'd post about some new horror releases. 

 

As most of you know, I get a lot of ARCs and above are a few of them I'm really excited about. 

 

FULL THROTTLE by Joe Hill, (Stephen King's son)

I've met the man a number of times and he's sweet and very funny. 

I've loved everything from him so far, but I've seen some so-so reviews on this one. 

Available October 10th.

 

VIOLET by Scott Thomas

His debut novel KILL CREEK blew me away, so I'm very much looking forward to seeing if that was a fluke or not. I'm betting NOT. 

Available September 24th.

 

SLASH by Hunter Shea

Shea is my go-to guy for creature features, but sometimes he writes out of that subgenre. His book CREATURE, despite the name, was a heart-rending book about chronic illness and the toll it takes on a marriage. (Among other things.)

This one looks like a straight up slasher story. Should be fun!

Available October 10th.

 

A BOOK OF BONES by John Connolly

This is the 17th installment of the Charlie Parker series. It was made available in April to those of you in the UK, but here in the US we don't get to see it until October 15th. 

 

A LUSH AND SEETHING HELL by John Horner Jacobs

Last year I wrote a review of this spectacular cosmic horror novella:

THE SEA DREAMS IT IS THE SKY

This new release contains that novella and a short novel.

I pre-ordered that shit as soon as I saw it. I am also trying to make it a priority to read some of his older works that I already own. 

Available October 8th

 

THE TWILIGHT MAN

I haven't been approved for this yet, but I am hoping I will be.

It's an illustrated memoir about Rod Serling. 

'Nuff said!

Available October 8th

Pre-party Part 1
Everlost - Neal Shusterman
The Graveyard Book - Dave Mckean (Illustrator),Neil Gaiman
Nights at the Circus - Angela Carter
His Majesty's Dragon - Naomi Novik
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil - John Berendt
Murder on the Orient Express - Agatha Christie
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - Agatha Christie
The Crucible - Arthur Miller,Christopher Bigsby
The Haunting of Hill House - Shirley Jackson,Laura Miller
Joyland - Stephen King

Joining the Halloween Bing pre-party a bit on the late side, but having a blast with all the traffic on my feed. Now, let's see:

 

Mystery or Horror?: Horror all the way

Vampires, Werewolves, Zombies or Other?: I'm partial to Witches, though the hodgepodges where everything simmers on the same pot are mighty fun.

Favourite Ghostly Tales:

The Everlost Series by Neal Shusterman and The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. They are all written for that nebulous gap between children books and adult, and they are the that perfect balance of cruel and kind that often becomes emotional.

 

Favourites from Halloween Bingos Past:

 

Lol! This might get long.

 

It took me 1 page to realize I had a new favourite author with Nights at the Circus, by Angela Carter. Naomi Novik's His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire #1) amply jumped my expectation's bar. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt surprised me by how engrossed I got into a book where there is not exactly something like a plot.

 

The year before last, I was happy to find that Murder on the Orient Express and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie are as good as promised. And horrified by how excellent and still current The Crucible by Arthur Miller is. I was also surprised by The Haunting of Hill House, after what I felt was a lackluster experience with Shirley Jackson's We've Always Lived in the Castle, and so very glad that I took the game's reviews to heart. Joyland by Stephen King ended up being a campy and perfectly nostalgic read. I also read The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula Le Guin, that while polarizing, is still my favourite of hers (well, maybe fighting for top with Four Ways to Forgiveness)

 

Favourite Series with Supernatural Elements:

 

Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews. Takes a couple of books to find some polish, but they are immensely entertaining. On a darker bent, I quite liked the Darkfever Series by Karen Marie Moning, but they are more of a problematic-elements guilty pleasure.

 

Favourite Seasonal Covers:

 

Favourite Halloween Bingo Authors:

 

Since I always end up picking at least one more book, Stephen King. If I search for number of entries during the game, John Wyndham and Agatha Christie too. And Illona Andrews, because I'm always up for a re-read.

The Haunting of Hill House
The Haunting Of Hill House - Shirley Jackson,Bernadette Dunne

Audience: Adult

Format: Audiobook/Owned

 

No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more.

- opening lines

 

This was an excellent performance by Bernadette Dunne. I enjoyed listening to her read the story and she made me feel like I was right there with the characters staying in Hill House. The book itself is well-written and had me up late wanting to see what would happen next. I felt for Eleanor, cheered for her when she stood up for herself and worried for her as she became more affected by Hill House.

 

I recently watched the Netflix series and loved it, but it seemed like it was more inspired by the book than following the plot at all.
