Library Title Picks – June 2022
How’s everything going? I just finished a hellish move up north and am so glad it’s over! I also got some spare time to visit my new library and check out a new book I’m excited about.
Speaking of libraries, it’s time for some more monthly library picks!
Once again, I focused on having my library purchase some great looking indie treasures in the horror realm. Stolen Tongues is going to be a buddy read with my friend Iseult Murphy, I’ve been a big fan of Alistair Cross on social media lately, and I’ve been a growing fan of older main characters, so One Last Shindig was a shoo-in.
I’m really excited about each and every one of these, so let’s hope I can make some serious progress on my TBR and give these my undivided attention!
Should these books spark your curiosity, feel free to check out the associated links and blurbs below. Have a lovely day everyone!

A romantic cabin getaway doesn’t go exactly as planned.
High up on the windswept cliffs of Pale Peak, Faye and Felix celebrate their new engagement. But soon, a chorus of ghastly noises erupts from the nearby woods: the screams of animals, the cries of children, and the mad babble of a hundred mournful voices. A dark figure looms near the windows in the dead of night, whispering to Faye. As the weather turns deadly, Felix discovers that his terrified fiancée isn’t just mumbling in her sleep – she’s whispering back.
Originally a contest-winning story on reddit.com’s horror community NoSleep, Stolen Tongues has received widespread acclaim and is now being adapted into a feature film.
Welcome to Crimson Cove
Sheltered by ancient redwoods overlooking the California coast, the cozy village of Crimson Cove has it all: sophisticated retreats, fine dining, and a notorious nightclub, The Crimson Corset. It seems like a perfect place to relax and get close to nature. But not everything in Crimson Cove is natural.
When Cade Colter moves to town, he expects it to be peaceful to the point of boredom. But he quickly learns that after the sun sets and the fog rolls in, the little tourist town takes on a whole new kind of life – and death.
Darkness at the Edge of Town
Renowned for its wild parties and history of debauchery, The Crimson Corset looms on the edge of town, inviting patrons to sate their most depraved desires and slake their darkest thirsts. Proprietor Gretchen VanTreese has waited centuries to annihilate the Old World vampires on the other side of town and create a new race – a race that she alone will rule. When she realizes Cade Colter has the key that will unlock her plan, she begins laying an elaborate trap that will put everyone around him in mortal danger.
The streets are running red with blood, and as violence and murder ravage the night, Cade must face the darkest forces inside himself, and perhaps even abandon his own humanity, in order to protect what he loves.
One Last Shindig—the new novella from the author of Nana, Crows, Nature’s Perfume, and Hope Wharf.
The world as we know it is coming to an end, but this group of geriatrics on one last shindig have no idea what’s in store. As far as they’re concerned, they’re on a quick jaunt to see a cave full of glowworms and then back to the hotel for apple pie and custard.
So, get the muscle spray ready and change into your big underpants, because you’re going to need them. Take your seat on this hilarious and terrifying coach tour into Hell.
Includes exclusive bonus novelette, “Watch Me Fly.”
Since day one, David has dreamt of being a superhero-to spread his wings and escape the iron fist of his mother. But we can’t escape our past, no matter how hard we flap our arms, and his mother’s voice won’t leave him be.
That’s A Wrap!
Well that’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed these library picks of mine!

Have a great day!

Happy moving! Glad you’ve visited the library already! 😊
I would not have guessed The Crimson Corset was about vampires from looking at the cover. Sounds good!
Looking forward to reading Stolen Tongues with you. 😁
Thanks! Yeah I had to or I was going to lose my damned mind lol.
Agreed. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve read a vampire novel, so I think it’ll be fun. I also need to reread The Vampire Chronicles someday.
I’m looking forward to it too! 😀
I can’t get the Middling Affliction on ebook 😡
Looking forward to your review to see if it’s worth getting the paperback. 😊
Oh nooo! So sorry to hear that. I made my library buy a copy, otherwise I’d be in the same situation. Stay tuned, love!
I haven’t read any of them but I just added Stolen Tongues to my TBR.
Me either! Glad you found Stolen Tongues intriguing enough to add to the TBR. Something is definitely wrong with the fiancee!
