February Reading List #horror #romance #Sci-FI #zombie

It's February - the month for LOVE. I have an interesting mix of books this month, some with a bit of romance, too. And sometimes, well, love has a BITE to it and can also transcend time and space. Heh-heh.  Dig in!


HORROR - Haunted Houses


Haunted House, A Novel of Terror, J.A. Konrath - Eight people, survivors, are chosen and paid $1 million to spend a night in the old Butler house where the murders occurred - a house that is supposedly haunted. There is something evil here...  things that kill slowly and delight in your screams.

Restless Spirits Boxset: A Collection of Riveting Haunted House Mysteries, Sklar Finn - The Haunting of Meade Mansion, 1-3: A small Colorado town... a mansion overlooking a bluff... an unsolved murder that has gone too far.

Follow Edgar Allan Poe and Lenore into The Great Dismal Swamp and experience one version of the birth of Poe's famous poem, "The Raven."

Executive Severance, (Twitstery Twilogy, Book 1), Robert K. Blechman - In this Twitter-composed, illustrated humorous-mystery, Willum Morticus Granger "was beside himself. In fact, when his body was found the top half was right next to the bottom."

(The series continues with The Golden Parachute and I Tweet, Therefore I Am.)
