The Sanctuary: A Novel | Gustavo Abrevaya

The first 12 pages are Álvaro narrating a movie he wants to direct based on getting stranded on the highway ?

The Hellbound Heart | Clive Barker

I‘m not a fan of body horror, so we‘ll see how this goes. At least I‘m not usually squeamish about it.

Fuuuck. Maybe I worked too many years in customer service but this made me tear up.

Now for something a little different! I can‘t resist library romances.

Sundial | Catriona Ward
Pickpick

I finished this six months ago but it still creeps up on me out of nowhere. Short term impact I had a couple of jumpy moments around our two dogs. Longer term, I‘m looking at people and feeling like I can dee the roadmap of scars that got them to the present, while having absolutely no concept of scale or quality. Messed me up.

SWORDCROSSED. | FREYA. MARSKE

HELL YES! Intrigue, swordplay, and a queer romance? This is going in the shelf with Swordspoint and Maledicte!

BookmarkTavern Woo! Got to add this to my TBR! 1mo

Best woman written by a man I‘ve read in ages and turns out none of the women are human! 🤬

I‘ve had this sitting in my Kindle library for ages and never got around to reading. It‘s actually pretty damn engaging.

The Invocations | Krystal Sutherland

Gotta love the right thigh/hip agony rep in here, though I‘m fairly certain mine isn‘t demonic in nature.

I‘d been meaning to check this out and finally cracked it open. I‘m definitely going to have to hunt down a copy for my shelf of loaner kidlit books.

blurb

I absolutely NEED a spin-off novel(la?) focusing on our Renaissance vampires

In the Night Wood | Dale Bailey

My hold ran out on Libby before I could finish the book 😭2 weeks until it comes back around

This ghost girl story has lingered with me for tears, but I‘d forgotten it was from Inuyasha!

The Spite House: A Novel | Johnny Compton

Eric and the girls just left the spite house to head for Eunice‘s and I have a fictional little old lady I‘d like to drop kick.

review

I bought and read the first 21 standard volumes as a teen and really loved them. Unfortunately my collection took a hit and most of them were unrecoverable. I saw the Vizbig editions on Libby and thought I‘d give them a shot for nostalgia‘s sake.

It‘s… very different reading them in your 30s. The story is still interesting and I‘d forgotten how many horror elements there were! But also Kagome is only 15 and some bits of the manga feel icky now 😭

Court of Shadows | C.N. Crawford

Need a palette cleanser after my last couple of reads, so time to revisit Arianna and Ruadan.

Rosemary's Baby | Ira Levin
post image

Decided to look up Ira Levin to see if there was personal history that made him so keen to write about women being manipulated/gaslighted by their husbands and got distracted by his stage plays. AKA Guy‘s resume from the book.

Bell in the Fog | Lev AC Rosen

I loved Lavender House, but The Bell in the Fog hits all the right notes. We‘re back in the city and Andy is finally making some friends when ghosts from his past complicate things.

Lavender House | Lev AC Rosen

“Need me to help you undress?” he asks, then looks horrified at himself. “I don‘t think I‘ve ever asked that without lewd intent before.”

Money Shot | Christa Faust

Eventually, morning came instead of bad guys. That was the thing about mornings. No matter how fucked up your life got, how deep and black your despair, how sure you were that you just couldn‘t take another second of this shit, morning just kept on coming. Over and over. Morning didn‘t give a damn about your little drama.

The Innocent Sleep | Seanan McGuire
Pickpick

Normally I‘m not a fan of devoting an entire book to retelling the story from an alternate perspective (unless of course it‘s someone redoing a classic) but this was exceedingly well done and really hit the spot.

review

I enjoyed the story itself and remained riveted, but I‘m most impressed with the formatting. THERE IS A PLAYLIST so you don‘t have to hunt down music, and the author includes a lovely little fact vs fiction section where he explains what he fudged for the sake of narrative.

I‘ve been wanting to reread the Lymond Chronicles since I finished them but those books are a COMMITMENT. Now I‘m listening to the audiobooks which, while not usually my preferred format, is very handy and entertaining in this instance!

I will never look at my nephew‘s birthday the same again. On the upside, Barley Day counts as a non-Christmas holiday for #popsugarchallenge purposes, right?

Decided to reread the trilogy for the first time in years, and I‘d forgotten how funny it can be.

The Last Call of Mourning | Charles L. Grant

This one felt a little choppier than I‘m used to from Grant‘s writing (maybe it‘s the prednisone), but the ending of this book will stick with me for a long time.❤️‍🩹

Paperbacks from Hell | Grady Hendrix

Got to craving gothic novels and tropes again, so after reading pulplibrarian‘s thread on Twitter, I pulled up the section in this lovely book. Now diving deep into Michael McDowell‘s The Flood!

I just need books with haunted houses and a comfy chair. #spooktember is here

This is a gorgeous, quick read with decadent prose. I‘m a bit ambivalent about the ending, but honestly I‘m never quite satisfied with how horror stories end so that‘s probably a personal problem.

Took a couple days off from reading (migraine and new nephew, respectively) and come back to see I‘ve done it again.

The Last Sun | K. D. Edwards

I‘ve been meaning to read this for a year or so since it first popped up on my radar. Cracked it open last night and I am SOLD. So far it‘s everything I missed about early urban fantasy noir, but queer. Feels like coming home.

Some of my favorite fall rereads:
Wisconsin Death Trip, Tam Lin, The Bloody Chamber, We Have Always Lived I‘m the Castle, and Tithe.
