Daphne du Maurier's short story "The Birds" is one of the creepiest stories I've ever read. The story, more so than the Alfred Hitchcock film based on it, was definitely an inspiration to me.

Great adult books for Halloween

This one I liked, but Mercy Alban I have so much love for I kept comparing and I shouldn't have. Maybe I'll read it again later and like it better. Good story!

The Twelve (Passage Trilogy Series #2) by Justin Cronin (Hardcover)

Justin Cronin

Title: Paris Was Ours. Author: 32 writers. About: In this volume, thirty-two writers parse their Paris moments. Some of the book's contributors are well known, others are not. Yet each has an intriguing story to tell. About half of these pieces are here published for the first time. Taken together, these essays add up to a single, multifaceted portrait. The result is a rich depiction of an entrancing, exasperating, fascinating place to live.

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow. This improbable story of Christopher's quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.

¿Ya tienes en mente cuál será el libro que te vas a leer cuando termines el de ahora?

Manhattan in the 1930’s with all its charm, sophistication and jazz-age dynamics is the highlight of this book.

11/22/63 by Stephen King...reading this right now. I love it! It has JFK and good old Derry, Maine, mixed together (if you read SK, you know about Derry!)
