A Winter Haunting | Dan Simmons

Apparently I read this book a few years ago & it was so good I completely forgot it.
Basically it's the story of a ghost haunting his old childhood friend who is not so up with reality 👻

Bk15 of #Scarathlon & Bk1 of #20in4 #readathon was finished by audiobook yesterday, but it‘s been a madhouse here this weekend! My annual reread of Dame Agatha‘s classic, it‘s one of my fave novels of hers. Highly recommend. #WordSearch #BodyCountBingo #LittenListenBingo #31x31 #Spookaween #Pointsathon #WickedWords #AutumnBingo #JustALittleSpookish #StabbyBingo #NoShameReadathon #BooktrovertBingo #BookspinBingo 👇 #TeamSlaughter 2,461pts

Re-reading this again, I stand by my 2018 judgment of it being just an okay read. It's quite dark in some parts for the age range, there's the death of a bird (not graphic thankfully) & a physical fight & chase scene near the end, but also rather predictable. I've amended the rating up slightly to 3.5🌟

This is the 3rd ya book in the High Republic series. It takes place on Corellia where the Nihil are rumored to be causing trouble. The Jedi are sent to investigate & the ending becomes quite entertaining when a certain Jedi shows up 💚

The book wasn't listed but I did suggest it.
Six stories: A Watcher By the Dead by Pierce, The Body Snatchers by Stevenson, The Adventures of the German Student by Irving, Dickon The Devil by LeFanu, The Fall of the House of Usher by Poe & The Open Window by Saki.

Livid: A Scarpetta Novel | Patricia Cornwell
post image
Pickpick

The first few chapters were hard going due to the obnoxious prosecutor... The overarching plot was good & I particularly liked how the different crime scenes were eventually tied together.... It just seemed a little clinical & little familiar - the machinations of a boss who dislikes her, earlier cases now under revision - you would think Scarpetta had earned a little trust & respect by now. (continued)

OutsmartYourShelf I'll keep reading these as long as they keep being released, but I feel they've lost the heart & soul of what they were originally. I've re-read the first five or six books many times, but I'm not sure I will re-read the later ones as often. 3.5🌟

My thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Little, Brown Book Group UK/Sphere, for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley

If you've ever since the film with Ralph Fiennes & Rachel Weisz, then you'll pretty much have the gist of what happens. If you haven't - then please watch it, it's a great film. There are one or two glaring differences between the book & the film but the main characters of Justin & Tessa were played pretty much spot on by Fiennes & Weisz, & the ending was kept true to the book. (Continued)

OutsmartYourShelf The book itself could have been about 100 pages shorter & probably would have been the better for it........Overall, good but characters a bit too loquacious, 3🌟

Bk14 of #Scarathlon #readathon is done! I finished this yesterday but not posting till now, so can‘t count it for the #20in4 which I‘ll be starting now. This was a so-so for me as the “do as your husband commands” part really p***ed me off, but the rest was pretty good. I loved the narrator though. #WordSearch #BodyCountBingo #LittenListenBingo #PromptMaze #31x31 #Spookaween #Pointsathon #WickedWords #BookspinBingo👇#TeamSlaughter 3,876pts
