Books From The Backlog-Night In The Lonesome October


Books from the Backlog is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf.  You might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks. Go to Carole's blog and add your blog post link in to join in the fun! Hosted by Carole at https://carolesrandomlife.blogspot.co.uk/

This seems like a fun feature and I have been planning to take part since Carole launched this so at last, here we go! I have a TON of unread books to choose from in various genres and I'm looking forward to sharing some of them with everybody. 


Ed Logan is 20 years old and a sophomore at Willmington University. He's also been dumped by his girlfriend. Lonesome and broken-hearted, he goes for a late-night walk. He doesn't know where he's headed. He doesn't know what he's going to do when he gets there. And he has absolutely no idea of the strange people he is about to meet. Like Casey, the athletic blonde who roams the streets as if she's on a mission. And then there's Randy, who's definitely on a mission - to make Ed's life hell. And then there's the others. Not exactly people. And very definitely not friendly. If Ed's not careful, he's not going to make it home at all...

I bought this way back when it was released and it has been on my Goodreads shelves since 2010. I've held on to two Laymon books for a rainy day but never been able to bring myself to finish with his books. I was gutted by his tragic early death and it will be sad to know I have no more left to read!

  1. I have one or two unread books by Laymon on my tbr shelf. I had no idea that he died so young. I tend to save a book or two from my favorite authors to read later as well. I didn't know that anyone else did that :) I hope you love this one when you do get the chance to read it, Chuckles!

    1. It's tragic for his poor family but looking at it from a purely book point of view, there could have been so many more good horror books to enjoy. I do need to make this a priority.

  2. It is so sad that he left us so early. I've been collecting quite a few of his books to read and am glad I have quite a few to work my way through. The cover and title of this one really make me long for Fall.

    1. I enjoyed those mindless horror stories without a whole pile of padding that some authors are guilty of...

  3. Ah yes, I can see why you're not in a rush to get to this one. I cried when reading a book by a favorite author who had passed just before I picked up the book. I haven't been in a rush to finish her books, either.

  4. This is an interesting feature I might try as well! I haven't heard about this author before but I do recognize how you feel. I would definitely hold of on reading some of his books in the beginning as well. I even have this with classic authors.

    1. It's fun to look at what we haven't got round to reading yet!

  5. This is probably one of the few Laymon books that isn't in my TBR pile. I need to change that :)

    1. I miss seeing new books of his coming out. He was a go to author for mindless horror fun!

  6. I'm intrigued and this is a little more horror-y than I usually read but that blurb is definitely tempting.
