The World at the End of Time - Frederik Pohl

 

Stories with no definitive ending can be so annoying!

 

 

Reading progress update: I've read 142 out of 400 pages.

The World at the End of Time - Frederik Pohl

 

My DWS Nov birthday read.

 

The way things are going, I don't think there is going to be a happy ending.

For anyone.

It's about damn time!

The Uninvited - William W. Johnstone

 

Bugs!

I'll stick with the mice, thanks.

 

If anyone needs a last minute Creepy Crawlie, this is it.

And only .99 on Kindle.

Blackout!

I didn't think I would make it.

I was hoping for one, maybe two bingos when this started.

Diverse Authors Can be Spooky Fun - The Devil in Silver by Victor Lavalle

One flew Over the Cuckoos Nest with a bite.

The Devil in Silver - Victor LaValle

 

First Van Gogh, next we get the life story of a rat.

I don't know, at least it wasn't as out of place.

 

Pretty satisfying ending, even though the shanghaied guy is not yet released, so we don't really know the end of his story.

 

Things have been investigated after the monster was vanquished (sorta), so things should improve a little for the patients.

 

There are no real bad guys in this, although Miss. Chris can be a right bitch when she wants to be.

The Devil in Silver - Victor LaValle

 

I was rollicking along nicely with this story about a guy who gets shanghaied

into a mental hospital because three cops were too lazy to do paperwork

Until we're brought to a screeching halt with Van Goghs life story.
What the hell was that for?

Bingo update

Only one to go!

I never thought I would even come close to a blackout.

Another bingo!

The Monstrumologist - Rick Yancey

 

My favorite line:

"Yes, my dear child, monsters are real.  I happen to have one hanging in my basement."

 

For some reason I just think it's funny as hell.

 

Kearns was more dangerous than any monster.

Scary guy.

The Monstrumologist - Rick Yancey

 

Not sure why this is listed as YA.  Yikes!

 

I was was expecting something a little lighter, along the lines of the Libriomancer.

 

My expectations were abruptly and quickly demolished.

The story of the lions is true! For the Free square.

Ghosts of Tsavo (Society for Paranormals Book 1) - Vered Ehsani

 

A fun story, although some background information would have been good.

And I'm not sure what she was supposed to actually be doing while in Africa.

 

I spent a couple hours researching man eating lions after this one.

 

 

 

(Testing to see if AdBlocker was the problem.)

 

 

 

Not quite as altruistic as the vampires in the Matriatrch.

The Hunger - Dandridge Doug

 

 

 

Even for another bingo, I don’t think I’m going to be able to finish this one.
