I had already rejoined Book Of The Month Club when my Facebook newsfeed was overwhelmed with ads for this book. The ads didn’t tell me much and the comments just said that it looked like an interesting read that was getting ready to debut. Then closer to July, Book Of The Month started putting up ads that said something like “If you liked Get Out, you’ll want to read this book. When I was able to select my July books, I quickly added this book to my cart.
Every year I make the New Year’s resolution to read more and for the last few years I have set my reading goal to 50 books a year. The closest I cam to reach my goal was in 2018 when I read 30 books. This year is looking pretty good because I have already finished 33 books.
Back at the beginning of this year, I found a copy of The Amityville Horror at our local library. Like most people, I knew the story of what supposedly happened at the house in Amityville, New York named High Hopes.
I recently checked out a book from the library because of the statements written on the front cover. The Haunted House Diaries by William J. Hall has “Ghosts, Aliens, and Holes in Space and Time” and “THE TRUE STORY OF A QUIET CONNECTICUT TOWN IN THE CENTER OF A PARANORMAL MYSTERY” written on the cover. It seemed interesting and, to be completely honest with y’all, a little outlandish. As you know, ghosts I can handle but these folks wanted to throw in aliens and parallel dimensions to the mix as well.
