My Top Spot this month goes to a book I reviewed earlier today, The Night Eternal by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan. I was so excited to get this book because I couldn’t wait to see how this trilogy wrapped up. It’s a great read – lots of atmosphere, lots of action, and a really original twist on vampire canon. Run right out and get all three!

My Top Spot this month goes to one of the Emergency Reads I bought on my trip to Amsterdam: Zero History by William Gibson. I love his work! There is something very energetic about his writing — the stories seem to fly along at a breakneck pace — and I always walk away feeling like I’ve had a glimpse at something secret.  They suck me right in.

This month’s Top Spot

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

This is a new feature from my Skype Sisters! These are some great gals I met at the a conference for authors and reviewers, and we have been chatting on Skype ever since.

My top spot this month is a terrific book called The Map of Time. It’s hard to describe because almost everything I want to tell you about the book gives away a plot twist! The book begins in Victorian England with a murder and an attempted suicide. Fate, in the form of H.G. Wells and his new novel, The Time Machine, intervenes. From there, well, we’re talking about time travel. Anything could happen! It’s a terrific book and kept me completely enchanted for 600 pages. That takes a lot of doing! Look for my review next Thursday.

So come on over to Skype Sisters and tell us: which August read grabbed your Top Spot?
