Trapped
Trapped - Jack Kilborn

I tend to veer towards books full of suspense and murder, and this book fulfilled just that. At times the author would get so descriptive and vile with the murders that it would almost make you want to put the book down, but like a train wreck, you just can't look away. I rated this book a 4 because of how silly some events were. For instance, the feral people chased the teens around the beach with salt shakers and bibs on and the couple had a baby with them the entire time. Those events interrupted the tone of the book and didn't make sense.

Wow, 14 books this month! That's a lot for me. Admittedly I was going for the shorter ones to get through as many as possible. I do have some reading done on longer ones too, so we'll just see how things go in the coming month.

 

Stand outs this month are The Last Werewolf, White Lies and Pieces of Her. These were all really good. I got various levels of enjoyment from most of them, only one got below 3 stars from me.

 

Bingo reads continue! But I also have 4 Netgalley books that aren't for Bingo squares so will need to at least make a start on those. Not much sample reading during Bingo. I'll have to devote some time to that in November.

The Woman Trapped In The Dark - J.D. Mason

 

Now that Jordan and Abby are ready to tie the knot, an evil force is determined to drive them apart.  Jordan's past comes back to haunt him and Abby becomes the pawn to a malicious plot to bring Jordan to his knees.  She's has been kidnapped and Jordan must race against time to find the love of his life or she dies.

 

The Woman Trapped In The Dark is drenched with romance and suspense. While reading I could feel the depth of the love Mason wanted me to experience between Jordan and Abby; accepting flaws with unconditional love.  

 

The suspense was plentiful however, the fire in the suspense was lost because certain events were predictable and the first half of the book moved too slow.  

 

The Woman Trapped In The Dark by J.D. Mason is a good read.  I've read the first two installments in the Blink, Texas trilogy and enjoyed them.  Unfortunately with this last book in the series I didn't feel that spine-tingling sensation I get when I read a suspense novel.

 

Thank you Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for an ebook ARC in exchange for my honest review.

Trapped in Room 217
Trapped in Room 217 - Thomas Kingsley Troupe

by Thomas Kingsley Troupe

 

This is a children's Horror story, targeted at age 8 - 12. I'd say it's appropriate for that level, yet the writing is very good! It's part of a series of real life ghost stories, set in places where ghost sightings have actually been reported.

 

Jayla and Dion have to accompany their father, a landscaper, for a job in Colorado. It turns out that the hotel they stay in has a reputation for being haunted. Jayla is in seventh grade, her brother is a little younger.

 

As it turns out, the room they stay in has a resident ghost. When the children experience a sighting of the ghost, they set out to investigate.

 

I'm no expert on children's literature, but I think this was extremely good for the age group. The writing doesn't 'talk down' to the children's level so I was able to appreciate Jayla and Dion's adventure and concerns about getting into trouble for various things.

 

While the fear factor would be considered tame for the adult Horror reader, I think it pushed the scary parameters just enough to keep a child interested while not giving them nightmares, unless they're overly sensitive. It's still a ghost story and the dark can be frightening!

 

This would be an excellent choice for the sort of kid who enjoys Goosebumps or children's adventure stories.
