Andrew65 Very difficult, but to start off with:
1. Jussi Adler Olsen
2. Lars Kepler
3. Camilla Lackberg
Reserve Jo Nesbo
6h
Andrew65 Another series is Michael Ridpath‘s Magnus Iceland series, set in Iceland. 5 books and 2 novellas. 6h
EadieB @Andrew65 Ok I'll add that one. We need 3 books a month so if the authors you pick don't have enough books to spread throughout the year then you can read other authors too. (edited) 6h

Nothing Ventured | Jeffrey Archer
post image
Pickpick

New series about a detective, William Warwick, who will go from Constable to Police Commissioner. It is not a detective story but the making of a detective. Love Jeffrey Archer‘s writing. Master storyteller keeps pages turning. Stolen Rembrandt must be found. Story ends with cliffhanger. Looking forward to 2nd book in series. Recommended for those who love mix of history with mystery.

EadieB @Crazeedi I think you will like it! 16h
DrexEdit I haven't read Jeffrey Archer in years! I used to read all of his stuff. Think I'll have to give this one a try! 😊 Thanks! 14h

EadieB @DrexEdit I think you should read his Clifton Chronicles series first as this is a spin-off from that series. They are excellent books! 14h
DrexEdit @EadieB thanks! I will do that! 13h
Crazeedi @DrexEdit the Clifton chronicles is a good series!! 8h
DrexEdit @Crazeedi it must be. There's a 4 month wait for the ebook at my library! 😨😨😨 8h
EadieB @DrexEdit Do you ever go to Thrift Stores or Library Sales? I see these books there for sale a lot. (edited) 8h
DrexEdit @EadieB too much! 😁 I did some serious damage at two library sales this past month, so I'm on a self-imposed book-buying ban... Again. 😉😁😁 I'm sure the print version is more available. I just can't check that catalog until I get home. 8h
EadieB @DrexEdit Yes the physical copy is probably easier to get since a lot of people do ebooks. 8h
Andrew65 Great to see him writing another series. Loved the Clifton Chronicles. @DrexEdit I totally recommend that series but have tissues at the ready at points. 6h
Andrew65 I didn‘t realise this was a spin off of The Clifton Chronicles. 6h
EadieB @Andrew65 It is mentioned that the main character for the Clifton Chronicles, Harry Clifton, is an author and Jeffrey Archer is writing these books about the character, William Warwick, in the books that Harry Clifton is writing about. Kind of confusing to me. (edited) 6h
Andrew65 Ah! Get it, of corse William Warwick was the character he wrote about. 6h
EadieB @Andrew65 Sounds like just an excuse to write another series. 6h
Andrew65 @EadieB Oh yes! Not a great fan of Jeffrey Archer the man at all, but he does write some good books. (edited) 6h
EadieB @Andrew65 What do you expect from a politician? lol 6h

#Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter

Drinking Poison
Jordan can drink poison
She gulps it down real quick.
She gives a smile
As people wait
To see if she‘ll be sick.
Some people swallow swords
Some others can eat fire,
But no better act
Have I seen yet
Than Jordan swallowing ire

Day 14 - #LettersHome #Spooktober #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter @Clwojick

The saga of The Watcher, which has since made international headlines, began in 2014 when the Broaddus family purchased their dream home on the highly-coveted Boulevard in Westfield. But before they were even able to move in, an anonymous letter writer began sending menacing letters with disturbing references to their three children.

The Showstone | Glenn Cooper

Pickpick

Glenn Cooper mixes history with fiction filled with mysticism, angels and evil spirits. Info from 1095 and 1609 in regards to who owned stone in the past. The characters, good and evil, are very believable. The book ends on a cliffhanger making me look forward to the next book. I would highly recommend this series to those who like history and mystery with a bit of supernatural. Thanks to NetGalley & Severn House for ARC for an honest review.

Just in time for Halloween, this new addition to the fun dragon-y series has lots of spooky, scary bits while being filled with non-stop action and silliness.

This early chapter book series has it all--humor, adventure, a dash of some gross-out stuff, and just the right mixture of sibling rivalry/love. Black and white illustrations with dragon details galore on every page add to the enjoyment, making Ella and Owen's world pop on each page.

If you were asked to choose the most fabulous character in English literature, who would it be? Perhaps the one and only Ichabod Crane. Just in time for the 70th anniversary of the release of The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, relive the action of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with this storybook and CD set, featuring word-for-word narration and sound effects!

What happens when one little ghost wants to stand out?

All ghosts wear white sheets. That‘s just what ghosts do. White sheets are good for haunting people, and they make the ghosts feel like part of one big family. But one little ghost named Roderic wants to wear something different. He tries all sorts of things: a bag, a rug, a boot. Can he find the right one for him?

Norm is just plain normal—until he finds himself in a new school, where all his classmates are monsters! Suddenly Norm isn't normal anymore!

About the Author
Dave Keane always loved monsters as a kid. Halloween was his favorite holiday and he dreamed of becoming a werewolf or a vampire when he grew up. Instead, he became a children's book writer and illustrator.

Aaron the Alligator‘s thoughts turn to apples, pumpkins, football, and . . . ghosts, his usual mishaps occur while playing outdoors with his friends.

This is a very cute book and I loved the part where Aaron dressed up for Halloween as a ghost and used the pumpkin for his head.
