Howdy there everybody!
How’s your week going? We’re halfway there, so keep on trucking!
As usual, on this day of the week I do a meme called WWW Wednesday.
This meme is a challenge where you simply share what you’re reading, what you’ve recently finished, and what you hope to read in the near future.
The meme is currently handled by Taking On A World of Words, and anybody can participate.
Simply read the 3 W questions below and answer them should you want to:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
When David Caine, a celebrated skeptic of the supernatural, is invited by an old friend to spend a month in “the most haunted house in Virginia,” he believes the case will be like any other. But the Alexander House is different. Built by a 1700s land baron to contain the madness and depravity of his eldest son, the house is plagued by shadows of the past and the lingering taint of bloodshed. David is haunted, as well. For twenty-two years ago, he turned away the woman he loved, and she took her life in sorrow. And David suspects she’s followed him to the Alexander House.
Opinion so far:
I honestly don’t completely know how I feel about this book just yet.
When I started it, there was a lot of noise around me that put me in a bad mood. It’s getting pretty darn interesting, it’s just too soon to say anything since I’m only about 10-15% in.
Cassidy Blake’s parents are The Inspecters, a (somewhat inept) ghost-hunting team. But Cass herself can REALLY see ghosts. In fact, her best friend, Jacob, just happens to be one.
When The Inspecters head to ultra-haunted Edinburgh, Scotland, for their new TV show, Cass—and Jacob—come along. In Scotland, Cass is surrounded by ghosts, not all of them friendly. Then she meets Lara, a girl who can also see the dead. But Lara tells Cassidy that as an In-betweener, their job is to send ghosts permanently beyond the Veil. Cass isn’t sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn’t belong in her world. Cassidy’s powers will draw her into an epic fight that stretches through the worlds of the living and the dead, in order to save herself.
I truly loved reading this book. Adventure, the paranormal, and a great plot don’t even begin to cover how much I love this book.
I’m looking forward to reading the next one soon, maybe even this month, if the library can get me off the hold list.

Next on my TBR:
Opinion so far:
Hmm this one’s a toughie. I have several choices.
- Elfangor’s Journey: I desperately miss Animorphs. Taking a day or two for it wouldn’t kill me, so I’m gravitated to read this next.
- Station Eleven: I’ve never read a book by this author and this one came from the library. From what I understand, a gentler apocalypse concept, which still seems creepy.
- Pet Sematary: I keep pushing this one back because, well, it’s Stephen King. Hordes of people have read this book, so I don’t necessarily feel that my review will really help readers find a new book as much as reading an indie book will. Still, I’d like to read this, just on the very end edge of my Festival of Frights.
That’s a Wrap!
Okay peeps, that’s my WWW Wednesday for this week.

It looks like you’ll have to read Station Eleven next because it’s a library book. I am reading Stoker’s Wilde by Hopstaken and Prusi. It’s an epistolary novel which is fun for a change. Vampires, werewolves . . . what’s not to like?
Yeah, but I also have renewals I could use for the library one so I think I can sneak in some Animorphs real quick.
Ooo vampires and werewolves, sign me up!
Also because Station Eleven is a great read, and Emily St. John Mandel is a wonderful writer. I just finished her novel, Last Night in Montreal, which is also a fine book.
I’m totally looking forward to my first Emily St John Mandel read!
I’ve read Pet Sematary and I enjoyed it. King is hit or miss for me and luckily this was a hit.
Oh, that’s good to hear! I hope this one’s a hit for me too. I loved Carrie, Eyes of the Dragon, and Firestarter. Fingers Crossed!
All of his books have been 3 stars or more for me except for IT. I really didn’t like IT. A couple of my favorites are Misery and The Green Mike.
Yeah, I never dnf his books, but I didnt care for Cell for some reason or other. Never read any of the ones you have mentioned actually
I have no problems DNFing a book I should have DNFed IT but for whatever reason I kept going with it. I just started reading his books last year as part of a Stephen King readalong I participate in every month. We usually read 1 of his books a month sometimes more so I am slowly getting through them.
I don’t mind dnfing either, I just haven’t with his work yet.
Oh cool! Yeah I try to space his stuff out and read more indie stuff, but I am happy to read more of his work. 🙂
I haven’t DNFed any of his either. Honestly I’ve only ever DNFed like 6 books a few of which I actually plan to pick up again at some point.
Well that’s promising. 🙂 I think I’ve only DNF’d two books ever, but once I DNF the book doesn’t exist to me pretty much.
The Green Mile ugh stupid auto correct keeps changing it to Mike for some reason.
Lol Mike must be green!
