Time, now, to read...

I liked this one a lot, Randy. Hendrix's books are so entertaining and so easy to read/enjoy. This one is pretty bold, I think, and I really liked the story and characters. I've recently finished The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, which was good, but I think this one is a fair bit better. Hendrix is one of my go-to writers for reliable, entertaining horror.Just starting The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix.
He has a new book coming out next January, named: How to Sell a Haunted House. I've got it on pre-order.
edit for a few comments on a horror novel I am about to finish. I'm almost done with Echo (on Audible) by Thomas Olde Heuvelt. Heuvelt's previous novel, Hex, was one of my favorite reads of 2018, I thought it was brilliant and truly original horror.
I am going to finish Echo out of respect to Hex, but this one seems very average to me. Too long (18 hours as an e-book), too boring, and with MCs I have little interest in. Also, virtually every decision the MCs make seem the absolute opposite of what a real person would decide (seriously, so many unlikely decisions that put each one of the characters time after time in the most-possible danger they could be in). And scenarios repeat and repeat and repeat. I do not think the book, for me, can be redeemed in the last 100 pages, but I will post back if my mind changes.
