I have just discovered a genre of books that I never thought I'd like - the thriller. I've always told myself that I was not a mystery reader, but after reading a couple of these impossible-to-put down stories, I'm hooked!
The best thing about discovering a new genre is that there are so many new authors to explore. So far, I've enjoyed reading selections by John Sandford, Linwood Barclay, Cody McFadyen, Harlan Coben, Tom Rob Smith, and Lee Child.
October is once again upon us, and it brings with it our annual entrance into the world of ghosts and ghouls. To get into the spirit of Halloween, I have been looking at the films that I have seen that feature the dearly departed who ended up sticking around. Everyone should see a good ghost story this time of year, but people often have a different opinion about what makes a good, scary story. The thrills and chills that we expect from these tales can come in several forms, and the most popular these days seems to be the Horror genre.
