Last month's book of the month selection (May 2018) was the superb fun read 'There's Someone Inside Your House' by Stephanie Perkins. Where to begin with this deliciously creepy read? I'm an avid fan of horror movies and horror stories. So it was a complete thrill that this book encompassed the thrill of a horror movie and infused it so seamlessly into a chilling novel.

The April book of the Month selection was the phenomenal read The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton. This was a fantasy world come to life with brilliant prose. The story evolves with a unique cast of characters and one spell bounding tale.

It has been a busy time and I have not updated on Books, Novels and More in a few months.
However, I continued to update my book of the month selections on my main blog. I'm now updating the book blog with those monthly picks.
The posts are shown in the original state as I wrote it on my main blog. So the dates of the blog posts are different, they were not written on the same day. Each were done in the month the selection was made.
Here is the listing for the book of the month selections for the period of July 2017 - March 2018.
Summer reading is always a joy. Finding the time to take a moment and crack open a book you've anticipated reading is a glorious way to relax after a busy week. My TBR pile continues to grow, but that's a good thing. Trust me...it just solidifies the fact that in the literary world, there continues to be interesting writers releasing quality work...creating new stories to uncover and devour.
The book of the month for July 2017 is the thriller All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda.

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 new book of the month selection for April is a dark thriller from best-selling author Jeff Menapace. In Bad Games, the first installment in the Bad Games trilogy, the horror centers around a family on vacation...attempting to enjoy a bit of quality family time. Their peace is interrupted by the disturbing arrival of vicious "visitors" that were not invited.
This twisted well crafted tale plunges into the nightmare that unleashes the will to fight back...by a family that refuses to go down without a fight.
