Are you looking forward to any of these? What else needs to be on my list? Tell me #allthebooks

Books to look forward to in Jan/Feb/March 2020

The Tenant by Katrine Engberg

January 14, 2020

Katrine Engberg is a hugely popular and well-known author overseas. So exciting to see her Danish detective series be translated and sold here in the U.S.

Snowball by Gregory Bastianelli

January 16, 2020

I haven’t ready anything by Bastianelli before, but this sounds great. “A group of motorists become stranded on a lonely stretch of highway during a Christmas Eve blizzard and fight for survival against an unnatural force in the storm.”

The Other People by C.J. Tudor

January 28, 2020

I loved Tudor’s Chalk Man so hard. It sounds like this one is about a kidnapped child and lots and lots of terrible secrets. Yay!

The Boatman's Daughter by Andy Davidson

February 11, 2020

I’ve seen this everywhere. Here’s the Goodreads blurb: A "lush nightmare" (Paul Tremblay) of a supernatural thriller about a young woman facing down ancient forces in the depths of the bayou.”

Miscreations: Gods, Monstrosities & Other Horrors

edited by Doug Murano and Michael Bailey

February 18, 2020

Read my review. (Horror stories by Josh Malerman, Theodora Goss, Laird Barron, Ramsey Campbell and many many more.

The Dark Corners of the Night (UNSUB #3) by Meg Gardiner

February 18, 2020

As a parent, I’m both intrigued and terrified about this premise: “He appears in the darkness like a ghost, made of shadows and fear—the Midnight Man. He comes for the parents but leaves the children alive, tiny witnesses to unspeakable horror. The bedroom communities of Los Angeles are gripped with dread, and the attacks are escalating."

The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

February 18, 2020

Have you read The Broken Girls? It’s a story about a haunted girls school, told in a couple of timelines (1950 and 2014). This one is about a haunted motel and getting very good reviews from advance readers.

The Animals at Lockwood Manor by Jane Healey

March 2020

I love gothic stories so this sounds right up my alley: “Part love story, part mystery, The Animals at Lockwood Manor by Jane Healey is a gripping and atmospheric tale of family madness, long-buried secrets and hidden desires.”

The Deep by Alma Katsu

March 10, 2020

If you haven’t read The Hunger, it was a detailed telling of the Donner Party – where the reason for every bad thing was supernatural. It was unlike anything else I have read. Here’s hoping this follow-up a haunted, doomed Titanic is just as good.

She Has A Broken Thing Where Her Heart Should Be by J.D. Barker

March 31, 2020

Each book in Barker’s 4MK Thriller series was so good and fantastically horrific. I’m excited to read this creepy sounding title about a creepy girl in a cemetary, a horribly burned body and a little boy known only as Subject “D”.

I have been fortunate to receive advance reader copies (ARCs) from the publisher of most of these. Follow me or visit often to see my reviews of these as I read them. Thanks!
