Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon TBR

Dewey's Read-a-Thon Oct 2015

October 17th
Sign up here.

Between the possible trip into the city to get stuff for next weekend (Canada’s Wonderland!) and the fact that I am slowly coming out of a reading slump, I’m not sure how much I will actually get read. I hope I can read the first two and at least get started on the third.

This is what I hope to read: 

Christopher Pike's Tales of TerrorChristopher Pike’s Tales of Terror

Death of Despair: Mike wakes up alone one night in his condo. Then his past loves begin to visit him, each, they say, in their dreams. But what Mike does not know is that he has stumbled into a very evil nightmare from which there is no waking.

Revenge: Ted’s girlfriend suddenly dumps him and he just doesn’t think that is right. So he decides to kill her, in a very strange way.

The Fan from Hell: Marvin Summers, the bestselling author of teen fiction, returns to face Lassy, his No. 1 fan.

Only too late does he realize that some of his fans have studied his horror novles a little too closely.

Plus other strange tales from the world’s darkest corners!

Her name is Annie Wilkes and she is more than a rabid reader—she is Paul’s nurse, tending his shattered body after an automobile accident. But she is also his captor, keeping him prisoner in her isolated house. Now Annie wants Paul to write his greatest work—just for her. She has lots of ways to spur him on. One is a needle. Another is an ax. And if they don’t work, she can get really nasty…
