Recently a friend of mine was asked why she stated that a female character was abrasive. That led me to thinking about strong female characters don't have to be abrasive to be strong. S.H. Cooper does this brilliantly!! Thank you for sending me a review copy S.H. Cooper.
Star Rating: 4.5 stars
My Thoughts: I read The Festering Ones in two sittings. I really enjoyed the premise. There is something that was really important to me that Cooper did really well. Her characters where strong women without being bitchy and abrasive. They were brave and faced their demons with spunk and grit. I really appreciated that. The idea that a strong woman doesn't have to be abrasive or a bitch was lovely.
A monster lurking in the mountain.
A mysterious cult seeking a doorway.
An otherworldly evil waiting to be unleashed.
Faith York was a young girl when she saw her father dragged into the ground by a spider-armed woman, never to be seen again. Twenty years later, the events of that day continue to haunt her, and her need for answers has only grown stronger with time. After her estranged mother's death forces her to return home, old wounds are reopened and Faith finally decides to face her demons. What started as a search for closure soon pits her against a shadowy cult known as The Gathered and the eldritch beings they worship. With reality becoming more blurred by the day and the thousand eyes of an alien deity fixed on her, Faith must decide if the dark secrets of White Crow Mountain are really worth losing herself over.

Hoy he ido con mis hijos a la biblioteca y me he encontrado con esta sorpresa. La carta de la Señora González de #sergiolairla y #analatirtegui. Hace escasos días que #abuenpasoeditorial lo ha vuelto a editar y estaba deseando leerlo porque su nueva cubierta despertaba en mí una gran curiosidad. Después de disfrutar con su lectura todo ha cobrado sentido. Y es que "cuando se pone cuidado en hacer las cosas bien, nada puede salir mal".
Un álbum ilustrado exquisito, lleno de detalles que convierten su lectura en un juego de observación con cada paso y retroceso de página.
Sergio, Ana, qué preciosidad, me ha gustado tanto, tanto,...
“God is a mediocre scriptwriter, that’s the conviction that almost 50 years of life have led me to form, and more generally God is mediocre: the whole of his creation bears the stamp of approximation and failure, when it isn’t meanness pure and simple; of course, there are exceptions, there are definitely exceptions, the possibility of happiness had to exist if only as bait — well, I’m digressing, let’s get back to my subject which is me, not that it’s especially interesting but it’s my subject.”
Michel Houellebecq is one of my favorite writers. His mix of satirical social commentary, raunchy black humor and misanthropic, pessimistic attitude toward life and humanity is equal parts hilarious and heartbreaking. Just picked up this latest, Serotonin, and I can’t wait to delve into the twisted world of the “Wizard Houellebecq.” I’ll post a review later but I couldn’t wait to share. •
Warning: not for the faint of heart, or easily offended. He writes to provoke. •

"Aldrich University is rocked to its core when a hacker dumps 40,000 people's e-mails—the entire faculty, staff, students, alums—onto an easily searchable database. Rumors and affairs immediately leak, but things turn explosive when Kit Manning's handsome husband, Dr. Greg Strasser, is found murdered. Kit's sister, Willa, returns for the funeral, setting foot in a hometown she fled fifteen years ago, after a night she wishes she could forget. As an investigative reporter, Willa knows something isn't right about the night Greg was killed, and she's determined to find the truth. What she doesn't expect is that everyone has something to hide. And with a killer on the loose, Willa and Kit must figure out who killed Greg before someone else is murdered."

Однажды, на пороге у крыльца,
В зените разговора двух мужчин,
О том, что жить мешает без конца
Обсуждали всех проблем зачин.
- О чем мечтаешь, ты приятель
В каких просторах бороздишь
- Нет, я вовсе не мечтатель,
Одно меня заботит лишь.
Хочу однажды убежать из дома,
Хочу свободным стать как вождь,
Слышать сильные раскаты грома,
Чувствовать, как капает дождь.
- Чего ж тогда боишься на пороге
Ведь не свободен ты сейчас, не вождь!
- Не уверен, что смогу в дороге,
Пойми, не пережду я чёртов дождь
- Лишь тех, кто веру потеряет,
Ждёт поражение в поединках,
Не горы впереди тебе мешают,
А камушек в твоих ботинках...
