Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

This month long read-a-thon/event is hosted by Michelle of The True Book Addict blog at Castle Macabre blog, info here

I hope to get one of these read!

  1. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving (kindle) 
  2. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield  (library book)   
  3. The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle (kindle)  
  4. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (kindle and box 33) 

~Books Read~
The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle



WooHoo!!! I got one read! Not only did I get a book read from the list, it has been on my tbr pile for years!

Yeah, only one book off the list but I'll take it :-)

Okay, fine.

I did read a couple more books that might have counted. . .

1. A Werewolf in Manhattan by Vicki Lewis Thompson - Paranormal Romance with a bit of suspense (there is a stalker). On the lighter side of the challenge.

2. Persuader by Lee Child - Suspense, gore, gun-runner, misuse of associates' family. {shudder}

3. The Cat's Meow - interconnected anthology on the lighter side of the challenge. Wealthy widow is an eccentric Bostonian gypsy. She needs to adopt out four cats and does what most of us would, she places an ad in the newspaper. Only she also offers $10,000 to start a new business. Each of the cats have their own story, written by a separate author.

4. The Enemy by Lee Child - Mystery, descriptive murder scenes, deadlines, threats of bodily harm by Delta guys. Stalking.

5. With a Kiss by Kim Dare - m/m romance, vampire/human re-telling sleeping beauty (sort of). Liam volunteers at a hospital as a patient visitor. Marcus is in a coma so Liam talks. Liam is a submissive with a bad boyfriend and Marcus hears, and remembers, every word. Knows when Liam has been knocked around. Marcus finally wakes up and there is feeding, fear, stalking, passion, bondage and finally sex. The fear and stalking are not Marcus/Liam although one is stalking and the other is being stalked.

6. The Hard Way by Lee Child - a possessive husband, a dead first wife, a kidnapped second wife. Oh, the man has his own army guys. . . the ones that didn't get a dishonorable discharge simply because of lack of evidence. SAS, SEALS, Rangers. So what did he threaten to do to the step-child? She was 5 at the time. What about when he discovers his wife is pregnant with another man's child? shudder  This was good but creepy.
