Today I’m participating in Shelf Control, a meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. See the description below, followed by my pick, Universal Harvester.
“Shelf Control is a weekly celebration of the unread books on our shelves. Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up!”
How and when I got it: I ordered this book from Amazon on February 9, 2017 – just two days after it was released. I was very excited to read it and then for some reason never did.
Why I want to read it: The description paints a dark, creepy atmosphere, and I love the nostalgia factor of the clues being found in VHS tapes. I was interested in this books solely on its own merits, as I’m not familiar with author John Darnielle’s work in the band the Mountain Goats, nor his other book Wolf in White Van. I have a hefty reading list built up right now, but hopefully I’ll get to this one soon.
