Last night I was in the mood for a horror story and Graham is sharing STEPHEN KING's The Mist with me. I have to say that so far I'm loving it...
The Mist was everything a horror story should be - I LOVED it!
Here's snippet from Graham's review of The Mist the last story in the anthology.
...The best story in the volume is saved until last - Stephen King's THE MIST. This novella is essentially a survivors-under-siege scenario involving the kind of massive, mutated beasties you'd find in a '50s B-movie, yet King's focus on the human element makes this affecting, moving and oh-so-frightening...

It belonged to my Grandmother who died recently. I shared her love for Mills and Boon and in my early teens I used to love delving into her huge collection.
The bulk of my grandmother's books are still in boxes - yet this morning I came across Mistletoe Miracles sitting on the side table next to my sofa. Last night I finished the M&B I'd been reading and I'd planned to read the next M&B on my TBR pile (one that I'd purchased a couple of months ago).
Sitting here, looking at this Christmas book with the spine showing how well-read and loved it has been by my grandmother, I know I have to read it next. I know that I'm in for one emotional but enjoyable read and during this Christmas period I'm going to feel close to my nan...
Dearest Eulalia by BETTY NEELS
This was a sweet story and took me back to the past when I used to read Betty Neels. Betty Neels has a delightful 'voice' which while being a tad old-fashioned in today's times, brings back memories of an innocent age gone by...
The Extra-Special Gift by CATHERINE GEORGE
Catherine George is a new-to-me author and I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I'm cursing my poor memory and wishing that I'd written notes while I was reading so I could share specifics of why I enjoyed this story so much. One thing I do remember is feeling it was an honour to share Christmas with Jess and Lorenzo. It's a story that I will want to revisit at future Christmases to come and I also intend to keep an eye out for other stories by Catherine George.
The Doorstep Baby by MARION LENNOX
This story reminded me that it's been far too long since I read a Marion Lennox. I LOVED this gorgeous story and will definitely read it again. I will scour my bookshelves for other Marion Lennox books because I'd forgotten just how much I enjoy her books. Rest assured that The Doorstep Baby is well worth reading.
My overall opinion of Mistletoe Miracles is that it contained everything a good collection of stories should. This book gave me fond memories of days gone by with Betty Neels; it introduced me to a new-to-me author in Catherine George, whose books I will now look out for; and it reminded me how much I LOVE Marion Lennox. A perfect read for Christmas and beyond!...more
