The Stand by Stephen King
blurb
Maggy.reads

Do you have a problem with buying soooo many books and a never-ending TBR ?
I kind of found a solution for myself :

I make lists of books I already have in different genres and if I complete one list, I can buy N-1 books.
Ex: If I read 4 books of Sci Fi, I can buy 3 new Sci Fi books.
I'm nearly completing my thriller/mystery list and I'm so exited !
I didn't buy new books since 2 months. That's challenging but it works !

Today, I interrupted my little mister cat reading my book... I guess he is as thrilled as me with the "Queen Elizabeth" of mystery ?

Oh my bookness ! What a wonderful, mind-blowing dark read !! I hope it is translated in english for you to enjoy ! It's a perfect way to discover the Mongolian culture and traditions (what a yummy breakfast they have !) and that the western people do not monopolise the horrendous "it's business" murders...

Hi guys ! For my winter TBR I would like to have some sugestions about adult fantasy books. I heard about V.E.Schwab Darker shade of magic and... that's it. I would like to fall in a dense universe but, maybe it sounds contradictory, not in 15 or more books... A trilogy or duology. Any ideas, litters ?

Dracula | Bram Stoker

"Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make !"
It's nearly my favorite quote of all time ( I love re-reading Dracula ?)

A Brief History of Mutiny | Richard Woodman

Pickpick

If you want to know more about the Bounty, the Potemkin, the expedition of Magellan (and many others), the myths and the real facts behind all the great pirates and mutineers stories, that's the book to read ! Every chapter studies a theme and a time period and explains the historical, social or political changes at that time. Great !

"-What an unlikely crew we have here ! I would like to know what an old trapper, a mountain guide and two sailors, are doing in here, in a tipi, in the middle of the forest, with a young Somali woman ?
-It's because of a shipwreck, answered Elias, but it'll be a little bit too long to explain."

Only 2 days to read this fabulous road-trip between Somalia, France, Swizterland and the Northern Canada. We follow Saamiya who seaks desperatly her daughter, helped in her journey by an unlikely crew. Love the depictions of the North, the beauty of the mountains and the deepest feelings of the human hearts. Hope it's translated soon for my english-speaking litsy-friends 😉

Haven | Tom Deady

At the beginning it was soooo like Stephen King's It, but it's more like a tribute than a simple copy-and-paste book. I loved the depth of the characters ( ❤ Mossy) and, even if the end is not a secret, I found interesting seeing the characters fight their own demons. And Crawford's ending is sooo ironic, I loved it (yes I'm evil 😈)

The wold has gone insane, there's something outside, but if we see it we go mad and kill everyone and end up suiciding. Mallory is pregnant and she has to go outside blindfolded and survive the apocalypse... Disturbing and exciting !

Haven | Tom Deady
post image

Current read : A mix between Stephen King's It and Nightmare on Elm street. 1960's, the Butcher's child killings terrorize the population of Haven. Until a man gets caught carrying a wounded girl. Indeed, his childhood scar disfigures him and seems to prove to the community he's the Butcher. He goes to jail. 17 years later, accompanied by a priest who believes in his innocence, the scarred man goes back to Haven. And the murders started again....
