  1. The Historian? Really? A good book should end just before you're ready to be done with it. That book was about a hundred and fifty pages too long.

    If you're looking for a good vampire story, try Bunnicula.

  2. dude. I was riveted. riveted by each chapter. She left you wanting more with each and every breath. There was a scare factor too that was quite nice. Was it too long? possibly. were the letters way too detailed to truly seem like a proper narrative? yes. Did I get a little annoyed at how often the two main characters had to tell a new character their back story? yes. Was it still a wonderful read? yes. AND, Bunnicula scared the ever livin crap outta me.

  3. Bunnicula! Ha, loved that one as a child. Totally forgot about it.

    I'm surprised at how much I've read on both your lists and also the overlap on your lists!

    I've still yet to read any Stephen King, but I just got a shiny hardback copy of The Stand and hope to read it soon (by soon I mean sometime in my lifetime).

    Have a great Sunday.

  4. Wow..I have read around 10 of these books..Guess our tastes match :)

    Between I am your latest follower :)

  5. I love that Bag of Bones is on your list! I seriously love that book so much, for reasons I don't even really understand... It's just so lovely/scary/heartbreaking but seriously under-appreciated in terms of the King canon.
    Sorry, that was a bit of a gush. Just know that I will love you forever now hehehe
