new-wow

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. This week I picked: 

The Hatching Ezekiel BooneThe Hatching (The Hatching #1) by Ezekiel Boone

Details: Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: July 5th 2016 by Random House Canada
Buy it: Book Depository

Summary: An astonishingly inventive and terrifying debut horror novel about the emergence of an ancient race of carnivorous spiders, dormant for ten thousand years but now very much awake. There’s a reason we’re afraid of spiders…

A local guide is leading wealthy tourists through a forest in Peru when a strange, black, skittering mass engulfs him and most of the party. FBI Agent Mike Rich is on a routine stake out in Minneapolis when he’s suddenly called by the director himself to investigate a mysterious plane crash. A scientist studying earthquakes in India registers an unprecedented pattern in local seismic readings. The US president, her defence and national security advisers and her chief of staff are dumped into crisis mode when China “accidentally” drops a nuclear bomb on a desolate region of its own country. As such unsettling occurrences mount, the president’s old friend (and her chief of staff’s ex-wife), spider expert Melanie Guyer, receives a box at her lab at American University that contains an ancient egg unearthed at a South American dig.

So begins The Hatching, the hair-raising saga of a single week in which an ancient, frighteningly predatory species of spider re-emerges in force. When the unusual egg in Melanie Guyer’s lab begins to vibrate and crack, she finds herself at the epicentre of this apocalyptic natural disaster. Working closely with her ex-husband and his very powerful boss, she has to find some way to stem the brutal tide of man-eating arachnids.

Stacking the Shelves: Catching Up

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

I’m sorry I haven’t been around too much this year. I have been really sick and I’ve been getting a lot of headaches which is making it hard to read. I will do my best to pop on here every once and awhile, but I’m not sure how much I will post until I’m feeling better. I hope to start reading more soon and maybe writing some reviews. Anyways, here are a few books I’ve bought/received since my last Stacking the Shelves post.

👻🕷 A Bit Of An Update 🕷👻

description

I know I’ve been gone awhile and unfortunately that wont be changing for a bit. I have been struggling a lot this year with my health (both physical and mental). I haven’t really been doing much reading, and for the movies I’ve watched, I haven’t written reviews for. However, from this point on, I am going to try to read some and get some reviews done. I don’t think I will be posting much on here for the rest of this year. Any reviews I write, I will post next year. I do have some Waiting on Wednesday and Wishlist Wednesday posts scheduled, so you will be seeing those. I will most likely pop on a bit throughout the rest of the year. Especially in the Fall when all the horror read-a-thons and challenges start. I am really sorry about this. Hopefully things start getting better.
