Topshelf Tuesday is created by yours truly to shout about books on my TBR that I am desperate to read.
As a reviewer I try to post on or around the day of release if I’m writing about an ARC. The downside of this is all those owned books sitting sadly on the shelf, well, on my kindle mostly.
An irresponsible Netgalley addiction coupled with the desire to review any direct requests leaves me little to no time for what I dub ‘Topshelf’ books. Instead I look longingly at the covers before diving straight into the next title my schedule demands.
Some are new, some are old, some are gifted, some are recommended. All are waiting waiting waiting for their time to shine.
This week on my Topshelf I’m feeling wistful for…
Hunter Shea- Creature
I’ve heard fantastic things about Creature for a long time now, this horror novel is apparently an emotional knife in the heart. After listening to Hunter’s interview on Make Me Read Your Book Podcast this title rocketed to the top of my wait list. Also, it’s a Flame Tree Press publication and we all know I heavily support them.
The monsters live inside of Kate Woodson. Chronic pain and a host of autoimmune diseases have robbed her of a normal, happy life. Her husband Andrew’s surprise of their dream Maine lake cottage for the summer is the gift of a lifetime. It’s beautiful, remote, idyllic, a place to heal.
But they are not alone. Something is in the woods, screeching in the darkness, banging on the house, leaving animals for dead.
Just like her body, Kate’s cottage becomes her prison. She and Andrew must fight to survive the creature that lurks in the dead of night
