The Price of Fear; The Film career of Vincent Price by Joel Eisner
The Price of Fear; The Film career of Vincent Price

Tina Blacksmith, August 10, 2014

Considering that Vincent Price is my favorite actor, I was thrilled when someone gifted me this book. It is his life, in his own words, as told to Joel Eisner. Price recounts so many memories in this book, like the time he and some other actors had a contest to see who had the most "shapely" calves! Highly recommended for Vincent Price fans young and old! :)

The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan
The Strain

Tina Blacksmith, August 10, 2014

I am now reading The Fall, and I have to say that this trilogy has me hooked. Don't mind those who say this was an attempt to cash in on the vampire craze. Guillermo del Toro had drawings and ideas of the vampires way before Twilight came on to the scene. These books are taut and well-written. If you want sparkly vamps, these books are not for you. If you want vampires the way they should be...out for blood...then I suggest reading The Strain!

The Bad Seed by William March
The Bad Seed

Tina Blacksmith, September 22, 2013

The Bad See is creepy, not because it is about murder, but because it is about a child that kills people. In today's society, when we watch the news, all we see is murder. It's not as shocking as it probably was when this book was written. The Bad See is a really good read!

The Best of Joe R. Lansdale by Joe R. Lansdale
The Best of Joe R. Lansdale

Tina Blacksmith, September 22, 2013

Joe R. Lansdale is a wonderful writer. I especially liked "Bubba Ho-Tep" and Incident "On and Off a Mountain Road". Lansdale will make you laugh, but he also has some serious stuff for good measure. Read this...you won't be disappointed!

Sorrow Floats by Tim Sandlin
Sorrow Floats

Tina Blacksmith, January 30, 2013

After reading "Skipped Parts" by Sandlin, I became a fan. I loved reading about Sam Callahan, his mom Lydia, and Maurey, the teenage mother of his daughter. So, when I read that there were more books focusing on this crazy bunch, I wanted to read them. "Sorrow Floats" focuses on Maurey Pierce, and I found it highly entertaining. I laughed so many times, just like when I read "Skipped Parts". Tim Sandlin is a great author, and I look forward to finishing "Social Blunders" in the near future!
