I have to say, I was completely unsure of what to expect of a book with such a macabre title.  Would this be filled with the 'blood and guts' motif of serial killers?  Or would I be looking at the haunted ghosts of the past who swarm small town America and scare the “bejesus out of unsuspecting humans?

Author: Marina Endicott
ISBN:  978-0-06-182589-7

There are some books that simply feel like they are made for a certain type of reader.  This book, I have to say, “called out” to me when I opened the battered box that looked like it had survived the fast-paced world of the postal service just to get into my hands

One of the greatest things about this book is the journal writing and footnotes that are added to almost every page

Author:  Robert Jordan (Brandon Sanderson)
ISBN:  978-0-7653-0230-4

There comes a time only once or twice in a human being’s life where a series of books comes out that makes time literally stop.  J.K. Rowling, of course, comes to mind.  So should Robert Jordan.  The Gathering Storm is book twelve of The Wheel of Time series and is, in this reviewer’s opinion, one of the absolute best ever produced
