The Forbidden DOor

Post by Chelle934 » 09 Sep 2018, 11:24

I had started to read The Forbidden Door by Dean Koontz. I like his style of writing, however this is a book that I will have to wait to finish reading. So far the book is good and interesting, however I realized 3 chapters in that I was a little confused. Turns out this book is a series. I would still reccomend this series however.

Not sure how many like horror but i recommend RICHARD LAYMON. I use to be in a book club where I got books a month for 5.99. It was great. And I got a Richard LAYMON book called endless night. It caught my attention right away and I couldn't put it down, I couldn't really get into any other author they sent, my husband read them but i just couldn't wait to get the next LAYMON book. I was never disappointed. I read everything he had wrote up to that point. Now I'm on my crime mysteries so I'm probably so behind on LAYMON, but I will catch up one day.

Latest Review: The Crystilleries of Echoland by Dew Pellucid

I am reading Justin Cronin's series that consist of The Passage, The Twelve and The City of Mirrors. It is about the end of the world, complete with vampires, much violence and a lot of love. I would recommend these to everyone that likes those types of characters. I am in the middle of the last book so I must leave you now to finish it!

Ann Rule has always been a favorite of mine. She has an impressive number of books under her belt, each well researched and entertaining. The last one I read was "The Stranger Beside Me" which gives an in-depth account of her strange acquaintance with serial killer Ted Bundy; for anyone with any interest in real life crime stories, this one is a must.

I just read a book called Mean Martin Manning by Scott Stein. It's one of the best, most entertaining books I've read in a while. It's about a man who just wants to be alone, but the government forces him into a "rehabilitation" program because he's living a supposedly unhealthy lifestyle. Manning has to find a way to escape, as he is constantly surrounded by guards. When he does, he's all about revenge.

This book is very comedic, but it's also very thrilling. I recommend it to EVERYONE.
Thanks for the recommendation, this sounds amazing! Just added it to my list :) but looks like it's not available on Amazon Kindle Store, i'll have to research

“I Am Watching You” was very interesting as well as haunting.
That was an incredible book! Totally spooky, I had a hard time sleeping after reading it!

On What Grounds is the first book in the series a coffeehouse mystery written by Cleo Coyle, a pen name for Alice Alfonsi. This book has a story line with twist and turns that are definitely a 'keep you on your toes' page-turner.

When a death at a coffee shop happens that looks like just an accident, also has three suspects with motives to want to kill, and a coffee shop co-owner who will stop at nothing to find out who the killer is not only for justice, but to save the coffee shop, things get a little chaotic.

By far one of my favorite crime/mystery books I have read. Definitely recommend!
Having worked in coffee for 18 years, I am very excited about this book! Thanks for the recommendation, it's added to my list!
