ANNOUNCEMENT
After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!
2017 edit
I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

A quick tale from Joe Hill, Wolverton Station doesn't take much time to throw us into the meat of the story. Saunders, who works for a Starbucks-esque coffee house chain, is in England to open the latest international branch. Not a particularly nice person, Saunders thinks very highly of himself and his ability to turn a profit, regardless of the consequences to those around him. While taking the train to his next destination, Saunders is surprised to discover a wolf has boarded the train at the last stop. Not just any wolf, mind you, but a businesswolf. And what exactly does a businesswolf eat?

Not one of Hill's best, he still injects his unique style of creepiness into the story. I'd recommend it for hardcore Hill fans, but if he's not your cup of tea, this will be an easy pass for you.
