Christmas Has Been and Gone

It’s such a lead up to Christmas. Probably more so if you have children, because if you’re a parent or around kids often, then you’ll know that to be very true. I’m pretty sure they start asking about next christmas after the one just passed! LOL.

I hope you all had a wonderful christmas with family and friends and hope santa was good to you. If not, then I hope you were good to yourselves and brought lots of new christmas book presents!! I was luck and got some christmas money and brought this little stash.

I love Stephen King’s cover, so bright and colourful. Excited to one day get to Karen Robards books they sound awesome.

I was also lucky enough to receive one of those Fujitsu Instax Mini 8 camera’s, in pink my fav color. Which is fun. I remember the old versions back in the 80’s, not as pretty as the polaroid’s today. LOL

Review: The Crucifix Killer By Chris CarterΒ 

BLURB: In a derelict cottage in Los Angeles National Forest, a young woman is found savagely murdered. Naked, strung from two wooden posts, the skin tripped from her face – while she was still alive. On the nape of her neck is carved a strange double-cross: the signature of a psychopath known as the Crucifix Killer…

  

In the beginning I wasn’t impressed with the first novel from Chris Carter. The first three chapters or so felt very ‘newish’. As in, obvious first time book. Given my study and career path, I also found parts to be extremely clichΓ© and found it hard to want to finish to want to finish because the main character, Detective Hunter, was an egotistical tool, to put it nicely. The author seemed hell bent on making sure the character told us how amazingly awesome, and intelligent, and apparently humble he is but at times he really irked me. 

Now I’ve gotten the negatives out of the way 😳 I have to admit that by the end of the book, I enjoyed it. After the first few initial chapters, the author got out of the ‘newbie’ zone and the story flowed nicely. It was riveting, I enjoy the characters, and the overall case was quite interesting. I do look forward to the next one by Chris, but do hope it’s less clichΓ©, but won’t hold my breath πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜œ

I gave this book: πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š/5 

And recommend to those who love a good serial killer book with added gore πŸ˜‰

Happy reading!
