Today I thought I would share with you a few more books i've been reading.

001. Cell - Stephen King
I'm not usually a zombie lover as they are usually all the same and while a storyline about technology turning the human race into zombies isn't new this book kept me hooked. Stephen King just has a way of keeping me wanting more and I found the characters so well likeable. This storyline is something that I could see happening in the future and I think that's why I liked it so much. The zombies weren't typical run of the mill and had elements of telepathy.


002. The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon - Stephen King
This was a short story but it packed a lot in it. All about a girl who gets lost in the woods and I found myself really invested in her life. I really liked this book and I thought the ending was actually really well done.


003. Undertow - Emlyn Rees
Not a book I would have purchased if it wasn't for the fact that I purchased it from a charity shop for £1. This book is all about a man who when he was younger went to live in a seaside town for a year with his uncle, and while there a murder took place. It then jumps in time to when he's older and it's happened again and he goes back to find out what happened. I didn't find this bad but I wasn't that into it either. I feel like the ending was lost and rushed and the 'Killer' was a cop out because they didn't know what else they wanted to do.


003. 20th Century Ghosts - Joe Hill
A selection of horror tales and like all collections some were really amazing and some were not. I love Joe Hills writing and found most of the stories were well written and had really good horror elements woven in..



004. The Atonomy Of Murder - The Detective Club
I have to say it was this cover which drew me in as well as the blurb. However it is slightly misleading as these little collections are essays from crime authors who talk about a crime of their choice. I did find some extremely dull and made me feel like I was reading something for university however many were engaging.
