The King of Plagues #BookReview #JoeLedger

…,what’s a Ledger book without an over the top secret society, richer than God, meaner than the devil and crazier than a bedbug?! Maberry writes evil really well. The characters here have the audacity to expect honor amongst thieves! They call themselves the Seven Kings…

We Have Always Lived in the Castle

Through a teenage girl’s perspective, you begin to learn about a very well to do family in a small working class town. The oldest member and apparently well liked member of the community, was recently poisoned to death. The town, as judge and jury, has deemed the teenagers older sister as the murderer, though a real court room did not condemn her, but, judged it an accident. Sometimes, judgement by our peers is far worse than any courtroom could deliver.

Funhouse

In Candyland, a loner on a long drive pulls over in a town and gets caught up in..local norms, shall we say. Lol. This is a must read for anyone that enjoys long rides across states, like I do. The fun and fear is pulling over in a different spot and meeting the locals. This one combines all the neurotic things my sister thinks will happen to me when I pull over.
