September #BookADayUK Day 5 & 6

Full Tilt - Neal Shusterman Chimerascope - Douglas  Smith

Catching up with the #BookADayUK entries for September (but it seems I'll be caught up with this post.  So these days tackle Book I Bought Despite the Cover and Favorite Book of Short Stories.


Day 5 - Book I Bought Despite the Cover




The only book I can think of off the top of my head - in recent considerations - was Neal Shusterman's "Full Tilt" - I'm not enamored with the cover per se  (I mean, the creep factor is there, and I think it suits it well, but something about it doesn't jump out at me as much as other books I've perused with similar subject matter), but the story is about creepy carnivals and I *love* stories about creepy carnivals.   I'm looking forward to reading this one.


Day 6 - Favorite book of Short Stories




I don't really have one, but I think I might've mentioned this one in a previous post.  I loved Douglas Smith's "Chimerascope" - speculative fiction is one of the genres I really enjoy reading, and this had a nice variety of stories by the same author.  I'd read it again if I could (might be something I pick up on my next book haul from Amazon Prime - I read this first as a library read and enjoyed it).


That's all for today, back to reading (and I have some reviews to post and catch up with today, so I'll have something to tide me over until tomorrows entry).  Have a good one all.
