I missed a TBR Talk post for April, but I’m back on track for May. I have a hard time sticking with a TBR list each month, as I’m a mood reader, but I still like to have the guidance to keep me on track. So, I’ve created a designated pile for this month, but it doesn’t include review copies or anything on my Kindle.
I recently finished a great vampire story (Vampyrrhic by Simon Clark), and this sparked a desire to dig deeper into more of this particular genre niche. I’ve always loved vampires, but there are still so many books I’ve yet to read. This month, I’m planning to focus on the following vintage/classic vampire reads:
Midnight Mass by F. Paul Wilson
Live Girls by Ray Garton
The Traveling Vampire Show by Richard Laymon
I Am Legend by Richard Matheson
This will also be my introduction to all of the authors listed above, aside from a short story that I’ve read from Ray Garton. Aside from vampire fiction, I’m also planning to start in on my pile of books from Valancourt. My first selection is Burnt Offerings, which I’ve seen as a movie, and absolutely loved. I figured it’s time to read the actual book, and I’ve heard great things about it. I’ve been working my way through some of J.F. Gonzalez’s work recently, and I’m ready to take the plunge into Survivor, so that’s on my list this month as well.
There will also be several books I’ll be pulling from my review copy shelf this month. I’m way behind on reviews, as my workload has actually increased during this lockdown, and I was also struggling to read for a bit. I’m back on track with reading now, but it’s just finding the time to do it outside of work and other obligations that’s been slowing me down.
Watch for reviews coming for these and other books in the near future. I’m also hoping to branch out a bit more with variety on the blog—posting something other than reviews, TBR lists, and wrap-ups. Thanks again to everyone who stops by to read my posts!
