The book of the month selection for June 2017 is Carter & Lovecraft by Jonathan L. Howard. I must admit, one of the main reasons I wanted to read this novel was due to the fact that the story would encompass the H.P. Lovecraft theme in a very different and unique way. Throw in a former detective, grisly murders, paranormal events and a descendant of H.P. Lovecraft. It just screams...a must read. And of course, any story that includes a quaint bookstore is a winner in my eyes. But, this is all premature, because I am just beginning to read what I hope will be a page turning win.
As always...happy reading!
*This blog post was originally posted to my main blog in May. I completely forgot to post to my book blog. Sorry for the delay.
The book of the month pick for May is Salem's Lot by Stephen King. This is a classic from the literary master of horror. I've watched the movie version of Salem's Lot several times, but never got around to reading the book. Being that I'm an enthusiastic fan of Stephen King, it is always a joy to begin reading one of his bestselling works that has remained on my 'To Be Read' list for far too long.

The book of the month selection for December is titled Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco. I was instantly interested in choosing this novel as my next read simply by the title as well as the lure of the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper. It doesn't hurt that the book is presented by James Patterson who happens to be one of my favorite authors. I was also intrigued to pick up a debut novel. Debut reads are important to the writers as well. It is always interesting to see what is put forth in a writer's first effort.
This month's book pick, Stalking Jack the Ripper, sounds like one hell of a read. The story centers around a young woman who's interested in murders that are happening quite frequently. She begins to investigate and pours over the forensic evidence. Jeopardizing her safety and her life, she becomes involved in trying to solve the murders being committed by a serial killer. But will she get too close to the truth?
