Books Calling: Will I Answer?
I've been randomly perusing my shelves, picking up books here and there, and then, more often than not, laying them back down again. However, yesterday Travelers Rest by Keith Lee Morris grabbed me. This one is about a family (mother, father, son) traveling cross-country from picking up Uncle Robbie from rehab. They stop in a snow storm at a derelict hotel in Good Night, Idaho and that's where things get really weird. I feel a little disconnected from the writing at this point, and I find it a little choppy and cold, but I'm going to endure because the premise is creepalicious.
Next up is The Fireman for #FiremanAlong. I'm actually waiting on my library copy, but I have high hopes for this one. Not so much because of the premise, but because Joe Hill has a way of grabbing me by the hair with his whacked-out storytelling.
I visited the library to restock Greyson's ginormous stack of books for the summer reading program, and I thought I might grab something for myself if anything jumped out at me. Well, of course some books jumped.
Skim by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki: This graphic novel came home with me this past Readathon, but I never got around to it. I need to remedy that because I already know I love Mariko and Jillian Tamaki's work.
