    If It Bleeds. Loved the first story but kinda wondering what the point is for the second one. Still need to finish it and the remaining stories.

    So one of the Audible freebies this month was called Henrietta & Eleanor with one of the authors being Robert Louis Stevenson. There was some mention of Jekyll and Hyde so I was intrigued. Well it was actually a modern retelling of Jekyll & Hyde set in modern times with the Doctor being a female. Not what I was expecting but I enjoyed it.

    I may have mentioned elsewhere on the forum that I really liked to upcoming book Midnight Under The Big Top. Even with the big name authors contained within the story that has stuck with me was one by author Tananarive Due. I decided to see what else she has done. In my research I discovered she was the Executive Producer of the documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror which is on Shudder and I really enjoyed. I also found that both her parents were heavily in the civil rights movement and she co-wrote a book with her mother about civil the civil rights movement. Turns out this is available on Audible. So I am four chapters in and it is fantastic! The chapters alternate between mother and daughter each explaining their experiences.

    Hyperion by Dan Simmons. It's about travellers travelling to Hyperion and each traveller is individually narrated. They tell their stories as they make their way there.

    That and Ender's Game. The one that has multiple narrators.

    Currently listening to Plum Island by Nelson DeMille and narrated by Scott Brick. He's doing a great job. Good story. For those interested, there is a lot of interior dialogue, something some people just hate.

While it is not a direct sequel it takes place in the same universe. This one is set up for a sequel. We will see if that happens. Overall a very good story.
    Glad to hear that. I'll have to give it a read. I really liked Those Who Wish Me Dead.

Early on this one felt a lot like 'Those Who Wish Me Dead'. In Chapter three a direct link between the stories was revealed. I am not sure if this is a sequel or a stand alone story taking place in the same universe. I am enjoying it so far.

    Just about to finish Midnight in Chernobyl. This event and story has always captivated me since it happened. It's a super technical listen though.

    Just about to finish The Dead Drink First. A WWII piece about PTSD and returning fallen soldiers back to US soil. I've really enjoyed.
    I really enjoyed The Dead Drink First. I have considered going back and finding the book it is about.
