Review: The Haunting of Hillwood Farm
The Haunting of Hillwood Farm - Kathryn Knight

There seems to be a haunting at the Hillwood farm, but maybe there are two hauntings? No one knows why there a mean one or violent ghost? Alice is be attacked but also be helped by her husband Henry? It gets so bad that Callie is called in to help?

Luke seem to no want to believe that there are ghosts? You will be surprised as the event continue to happen when Luke and Callie are together and when they are apart? One is trying to get warn and one is about danger?

We get everything the author wants in a story. We get hauntings and the paranormal effect and along with it we get a romance that blooms. Whether this is the author intent or not, does not matter as it seem to just happen.

The plot is done well. I loved it. It one that got my attention as I was reading. I wanted to know who the ghosts were. Especially the one that was haunting the Turners and Callie? This is answered at the end. The reason for two ghost and who was who is revealed. One was protecting and the was hurtful? We find out why it happen as well. If you are into hauntings or ghosts or even paranormal aspect in the book this one is good.

When the Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica
When The Lights Go Out - Mary Kubica

I was going to write a real review for this book but it doesn’t deserve it. This book made me so crazy-mad that I am not going to waste my time. Up until the last quarter or so I would’ve rated it a 3 ½. It was holding my attention even though some of the themes; the insatiable baby-lust, the absent husband who may or may not be cheating, etc. were all too familiar after just finishing up this author’s novel Pretty Baby and I may have mixed them up a time or two in my head but it wasn’t awful by any means. There were lots of secrets lurking and I really did want to keep reading to discover them all until the big reveal was unleashed upon me. It was weak, manipulative, over-used, unoriginal, and the lamest of lame-ass plot reveals. I couldn’t believe what the author had just done to me. I still can’t! I feel cheated, misled and more disappointed than mere words can say. 
And for that this book is getting a VERY generous 2.

Nine Perfect Strangers - Liane Moriarty 
Nine Perfect Strangers - Liane Moriarty

Dear book designers: a rainbow on a book jacket currently means Gay. While I support inclusion, and appreciate it, in this context, it is misleading. I get not wanting it to look girly, but I think I would have gone more in the crime vernacular. Not that it matters about selling it to me, I was going to read the book regardless, because I really like Moriarty's unusual mix of humor and crime and social issues and romance, but some people be sadly disappointed.

 

Loved the book. I was pleased that at least one character wasn't white. There were some interesting surprises, lots of story on everyone, and a very satisfying finish.

THE FISHERMAN by John Langan
The Fisherman - John Langan

 

John Langan's THE FISHERMAN is a phenomenal story within a story.

 

Featuring cosmic horror, quiet horror, psychological horrors and a few scenes that were just horrific in general, I find myself lacking the words this book deserves.

 

This tale was outstanding and I waited way too long to read it. You should read it and the sooner the better.

 

My HIGHEST recommendation!

 

You can get a copy here: THE FISHERMAN

 

*I bought this book with my hard earned cash and the author was kind enough to sign it for me. Thank you, sir!*

Reading progress update: I've read 15 out of 64 pages.
Shadows and Light - David McLaughlin,Mi... Shadows and Light - David McLaughlin,Michael Gray

I always think photography dates to the late Victorian era but it's actually ~50 years older than that and I get surprised evry time I'm reminded of the fact. The earliest image here is from 1849; the cover image; Bath Abbey with gas street light and horse-drawn carriage. The book's text is now historical, too, with its mentions of the Reference Library in Queen's Square - that moved in the late '80s or early '90s.
