“Joyland (Hard Case Crime Book 112)” by Stephen King

                        Although I am a big Stephen King fan, I had never paid much attention to Joyland. Maybe it was the cover which seemed unnecessarily garish. I had never even read the book’s blurb or any of the reviews. Whatever the reason I resisted reading this novel, I succumbed to my love of King’s writing and added it to my Kindle. It’s a good thing … Continue reading “Joyland (Hard Case Crime Book 112)” by Stephen King

“Surrender, New York: A Novel” by Caleb Carr

I’d read the negative reviews, and I thought, how bad could it be? I don’t know what the other reviewers were reading, because I liked this book … Continue reading “Surrender, New York: A Novel” by Caleb Carr
