Out Behind the Barn by John Boden and Chad Lutzke

Out Behind the Barn by John Boden and Chad Lutzke cover


The boys crept to the window and watched as Miss Maggie carried the long bundle into the barn, the weight of it stooping her aging back. Rafter lights spilled from the barn doors and Davey saw an arm fall from the canvas-wrapped parcel. He smiled.


“She got someone!”



Both children grinned and settled in their beds, eyes fixed to the ceiling.

This was family growth.

It's Monday. What Are You Reading? #17

It's Monday. What are you reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted by The Book Date. This meme lets you show fellow readers what you have read, what you are reading, and what you will be reading.

Hey ya'll! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. 

I took an extra couple of days before the holiday so I ended up with a week off. 
I'd like to say my lack of reading this week was due to business from the holiday but really it wasn't. It was from me being addicted to playing Horizon New Dawn on PS4. It's not often that I find a game that keeps my interest very long, but this one is doing it in a very bad, stay in pjs, and don't leave the house way.  My husband worked all week, so what else was I going to do? Clean house? I don't think so. *grins*

Don't get me wrong. I did put on makeup and real clothes on at least half of those days. We helped serve Thanksgiving at a local horse sanctuary that is dedicated to helping veterans with PTSD. Our motorcycle association (CVMA) has picked them as one of our charities to support in the coming year. It was our first time there, but won't be our last. There were 130 people that came together; Veterans, veteran motorcycle groups like CVMA and Rolling Thunder, and a multitude of volunteers. It was a great place to be. 

Our own family decided to forgo the traditional Thanksgiving and just have dinner out last weekend. That was a nice change of pace, though my husband was very sad that there were no leftovers in the fridge. He came home the day after Thanksgiving and cooked turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and green beans! Silly man!

I'm not looking forward to tomorrow after a week off but I know we'll get through it. Hope you have a good week.
Happy reading!

Review of The Devil's Fingers

The Devil's Fingers by Hunter Shea cover

WHAT HAS LONG PINK FINGERS AND SMELLS LIKE ROTTING FLESH?
It is a slime-covered fungus known for its pinkish red tentacles and pungent odor. It is indigenous to Australia but has spread to North America. Its Latin name is Clathrus Archeri, also known as Octopus Stinkhorn. Most people call it The Devil’s Fingers . . .
 
I DON’T KNOW BUT IT’S GROWING ON YOUR NECK. 
Deep in the woods of Washington, botanist Autumn Winters stumbles onto a field of the luridly colored fungi. Two of her fellow campers make the mistake of touching it. Now it’s growing on them. Fleshy gelatinous pods. Sprouting from their skin. Feeding on their blood . . .
 
AND IT’S STILL GROWING.
Autumn watches in horror as her friends are transformed into monstrosities—grotesque, human-fungal hybrids as contagious and deadly as any virus. Autumn knows she must destroy these mutations before they return to civilization. But if there’s one thing that spreads faster than fear, 
it’s The Devil’s Fingers . . .

Review || The Possession of Natalie Glasgow by Hailey Piper


Margaret Willow has never met an eleven-year-old as dangerous as Natalie Glasgow. Natalie spends her days comatose, but at night she prowls her mother’s home, unnaturally strong and insatiably carnivorous. With doctors baffled, Natalie’s mother reaches out to Margaret, an expert in the supernatural. But even Margaret is mystified and terrified by Natalie’s condition. She’s dying, and before she dies, she might kill someone. Has a demon clawed its way inside an eleven-year-old girl? Or does the source of this nightmare lie with Natalie’s dead father?

A tight, tense novella, THE POSSESSION OF NATALIE GLASGOW twists the exorcism tale at every turn down to its final grave confrontation.
