Wayward-A-Thon - Announcement & TBR

Happy Sunday everyone!  This weekend I'm sharing my plans for round one of  Wayward-A-Thon which is hosted by @readingparent  and @lifewhitme .  Wayward-A-Thon will run the entire month of February and it's inspired by the first season of Supernatural .  Needless to say, I'm really excited for this readathon since it's based on one of my favorite tv shows.  My goal is to complete a blackout bingo of the entire board.  Without further ado, let's get to my tbr:  Pilot - First book in a series My choice: Undone ( Outcast Season #1) by Rachel Caine - I've had this sitting on my shelf for way too long.  It's time to give this a try. Skin - Read a book you're unsure about My choice: Ancient Images by Ramsey Campbell - I got this ages ago at a library book sale.  I'd never heard of it.  It sounded intriguing though since it's a horror novel that features a Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi movie.  Not sure about that cover though. Hell House - Paranormal

Luray by Dennis Haupt - Review

❋  ❋  ❋   ❋ I received an ecopy from Reedsy Discovery in exchange for an honest review. One of humanity's colonies makes contact with an alien civilization that calls itself the Aurigan Empire. The empire politely demands the United Earth Military's unconditional and immediate surrender and sends wave after wave of warships. Strangely, the Aurigan ships are technologically inferior, lack any sort of effective weaponry and are easily shot down - or so the UEM claims. When the colony's investors start getting nervous, acclaimed risk assessment agent Luray Ulyssa Cayenne is sent to determine what is going on and whether the Aurigans truly pose a threat. What she finds is well beyond her pay grade, and what she does to uncover the truth could cost not only her freedom, but her very humanity. Enjoy a mysterious science-fiction story challenging the reader and asking difficult questions that will keep you awake at night. Luray ( Behind the Last Gate # 1) by Dennis Haupt caught
