Current Reads #15

Time for Current Reads!!

priest Priest by Sierra Simone- Synopsis: “There are many rules a priest can’t break. A priest cannot marry. A priest cannot abandon his flock. A priest cannot forsake his God. I’ve always been good at following rules. Until she came.” Wow. I just hope God forgives me for reading this scandalous erotic romance. Lol.

IT IT by Stephen King- On the first of June I’ll start buddy reading IT. My bud, Darla, and I plan to spend the entire summer reading this, with occasional breaks because this book is a BEAST. I’ll be reading additional books at the same time, but the plan is to finish IT before the new film adaptation comes out in September.

Thanks for reading!

Cheers, homies! And remember that we all float! 😀

Listening Party: Chris Cornell

Chris The music of Chris Cornell was not only something that could be heard, but also felt in the depths of my soul. I often found solace in his voice and lyrics. His music wasn’t something that I jammed to every once in awhile, hellz no. I listened to that beautiful and intoxicating voice religiously. I turn to him for musical inspiration as I write, read, and when I need something to get me through the emotional turmoil, isolation, and the physical anguish I often feel. So for this special edition of Listening Party, I’ve put together fifty-two jamz (a jam for each year of his life) from his impressive career. There’s jamz from Soundgarden, Audioslave, and his solo work. Thank you so much, Chris, for having such a consistent presence in my life. Rest easy, homie.

Current Reads #14

It’s Current Reads time!

ghost Ghostface Killer by M. Never- I saw an ad for this novel on Facebook. This is a dark romance involving a hit woman. I read the prologue this morning and was really impressed. I have a gut feeling that this will be an awesome read.

jack Peaceable Kingdom by Jack Ketchum- I purchased this collection of short stories this weekend. I’ve always wanted to read something by Mr. Ketchum. If the first story is any indication, then I’m in for a dope read.

finalFinal Ride: Lords Of Mayhem Book 4 by Shyla Colt- This is the fourth installment of the Interracial Romance series set in the biker world. I finished this late last night, but wanted to include it in this post. I’ll have a mini review in an upcoming Finished Reads.

Cheers, homies!

Book Haul #1 (Horror)

ravenThere have been numerous studies on why people love to be scared.  I for one won’t be adding anything new to the discussion. I just have a long-standing love for all things horror. I’ve probably mentioned that before. LOL. I’ve been purchasing quite a few horror novels lately- both physical copies, and e-books. Horror novels aren’t just picked up in October. I read horror all year long, baby! Here are the books I’ve bought since the start of May. Ooh, and for book recommendations check out the following YouTube channels. The Low-Budget Review show hosted by, Erik Smith is everything! I love this channel! His passion for horror is infectious. Check it out here. Erik’s fantastic reviews just makes you want to spend money quickly on books! Matt The Horror Adonis’ channel is another great find. I think his horror novel reviews are quite clever and informative. Check out his channel here.

Finally, here goes the list.

Exorcist Falls by Jonathan Janz- The latest release by one of my favorites.

Everything’s Eventual by Stephen King- I let a friend borrow my copy, and I never got it back. I had to purchase this short story collection again.

We Came Back by Patrick Lacey- I’m friends with Erik on Fb, and he shared a post about this author’s current release. Looked dope, so I bought a copy.

Dream Woods by Patrick Lacey- I thought the cover of this book was frightening. I HAD to have it!

In The Dark by Richard Laymon- I’ve heard that this author is quite prolific. Had to check out some of his work.

Peaceable Kingdom by Jack Ketchum- A short story collection, and my intro to the legendary author.

The Resurrectionist by Wrath James White- I heard that this book was insanely good! Can’t wait to read it!

Cheers, homies!
