This is something I murmur to myself often. I must have asked myself this question at least ten times in the last two weeks, and it had nothing to do with reading a book. But I also don’t know what I was thinking when I promised myself I would read and review several top rated horror novels this month. This week’s review is focused on Nick Cutter’s The Troop.

My heart was beating out of my chest. I yelled at my husband for interrupting me. I didn’t want to move even to feed my cats. I was on the edge of my seat, my breathing became heavier, and I was in a constant state of anticipation with what may be coming next. Screw October.
