It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


This weekly meme is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date.

I'm still reading:

This one has been sitting on my dusty bookshelf for so long, and Michelle at TuesBookTalk on Goodreads is hosting a read-a-long for October:

TITLE: 'Salem's Lot
AUTHOR: Stephen King
PUBLISHER: Signet
PUBLICATION DATE: August 1, 1976
FORMAT: Paperback
LENGTH: 427 pages
GENRE: Horror
Something strange is going on in Jerusalem's Lot ... but no one dares to talk about it. By day, 'Salem's Lot is a typical modest New England town; but when the sun goes down, evil roams the earth. The devilishly sweet insistent laughter of a child can be heard echoing through the fields, and the presence of silent looming spirits can be felt lurking right outside your window. Stephen King brings his gruesome imagination to life in this tale of spine tingling horror.


I'm still listening to:

I bought this on Audible over three years ago and still haven't gotten to it! I thought it would be a good pick for this time of year, when I tend to like reading more paranormal.

SERIES: The Hollows, Book #1
AUTHOR: Kim Harrison
NARRATOR: Marguerite Gavin
PUBLISHER: Tantor Audio
PUBLICATION DATE: June 27, 2007
FORMAT: Unabridged audiobook
LENGTH: 13 hrs and 14 mins
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

On the run with a contract on her head, Rachel reluctantly teams up with Ivy, Inderland's best runner...and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shape-changing assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crimelord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death...not to mention her own roommate!

Fun, sassy, filled with action, humor, and romance, Dead Witch Walking is the perfect summer listen for anyone who likes vampires, paranormal fantasy, romance, or just a great beach book.

    1. I'm really enjoying 'Salem's Lot so far. Dead Witch Walking was a bit of a slow start, but I liked it.
