I missed reading a Horror book in January, but am starting February right:

1. Still Life with Crows - Preston/Child



Genre: Horror/Thriller

Rating: Best of the Series I’ve Read so Far

Agent Pendergast, just as mysterious as ever, turns up in a tiny Kansas town after a bizarre murder is found with the scene set as a ritualistic tableau.

But the next murder makes no sense, at least none that anyone can figure out, since it breaks all the rules regarding serial killers.

Pendergast, unloved by the local cops, finds a young girl, an ousider like him, to assist and he and she set out to catch the killer.

Very good descriptions of the country, the scenes, the local flora and fauna, complex mystery, and lots of crazy chases.

Well, I sure didn't keep up with this thread.

I'll try to do better next year. I did read more horror, but not for the proper months. In 2016 I'll keep track even if my reads don't fit a monthly theme.

>7 majkia: That's what I'm planning to do as well. I'm interested in what everyone is reading even if it doesn't match the monthly category because I'm always looking for recommendations.

Yeah definitely, the themes are good for fun and just to keep being proactive with stuff, but noting down all of the different ones is never a bad thing to do! :)
