Books From The Backlog-The Shuddering


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. 


Ryan Adler and his twin sister, Jane, spent their happiest childhood days at their parents' mountain Colorado cabin - until divorce tore their family apart. Now, with the house about to be sold, the Adler twins gather with their closest friends for one last snowboarding-filled holiday. While commitment-phobic Ryan gazes longingly at Lauren, wondering if his playboy days are over, Jane's hopes of reconciling with her old boyfriend evaporate when he brings along his new fiancée. 

As drama builds among the friends, something lurks in the forest, watching the cabin, growing ever bolder as the snow falls - and hunger rises. After a blizzard leaves the group stranded, the true test of their love and loyalty begins as the hideous creatures outside close in, one bloody attack at a time. Now Ryan, Jane, and their friends must fight - tooth and nail, bullet and blade - for their lives. Or else surrender to unspeakable deaths in the darkened woods.

This one was added to my tbr in December 2016. I think I've avoided reading it because there is the possibility of a lot of relationship angst before we get to the horror side of things and that could slow it down too much. I do want to find out what is in the woods though so I will be reading this at some point.

  1. In my reading world, too much relationship angst IS horror fiction!

  2. I didn't expect that blurb to end with creatures in the forest! Relationship angst sounds easier!

  3. Getting stranded in a blizzard is one of my favorite plot premises. (If the characters aren't too stupid and angsty.)

  4. I get fidgety about too much angst as well, but hopefully that will be over soon and get to the good stuff for you.

  5. I have quite a few of her books on my kindle but I don't think I have this one. I love her book Brother.
