Books I am currently reading/listening to: The Witch Doctor's Wife
by Tamar Myers.
by Tamar Myers.
I'm really digging this book. Amanda Brown, a missionary, flies to the Belgian Congo to replace the missionaries running the missionary guest house. As the plane descends for landing, they experience problems and crashes into the trees and starts a blazing fire. Amanda who has hit her head and going in and out of consciousness, is carried off the plane by an unknown Nigerian man. In the meantime, this unknown Nigerian man needs to get away without being noticed and does so, disappearing in the woods.
I'm dying to know who this unknown Nigerian man is! More later.
600 Hours of Edward by Craig Lancaster
Back of the book: Edward Stanton is a man hurtling headlong toward the middle age. His mental illness has led him to be sequestered in his small house in a small city, where he keeps his distance from the outside world and the parents from whom he is largely estranged.
For the most part, Edward sticks to things he can count on.. and things he can count. But over the course of 25 days (or 600 hours, as Edward prefers to look at it) several events puncture the walls Edwards has built around himself.
In the end, he faces a choice: Open his life to experience and deal with the joys and heartaches that come with it, or remain behind his closed door, a solitary soul.
After that is The Dark Matter Directive by D. Charles Wilson.
When fourteen-year-old Eric Jessing wakes up one morning and finds the bathroom mirror has turned an endless black, he's clued in that things are about to get very interesting. A string of frightening and unexplainable occurrences follow that lead their dad, Matt, to feel his sons need protecting. After he ushers them out of the house, he calls a local psychic hoping for a sympathetic ear and a way to stop what seems like psychic phenomena. Unfortunately, what Matt learns is that his kids were born with a special gift: the ability to draw in and deflect dark spiritual energy like a pair of paranormal lightning rods. Worse, a particularly nasty entity called `The Red Horseman' has noticed, and sets out to absorb their ability. Directed to a renowned physicist and bookseller named Harker Jeffries, the boys learn that a secret society of children like themselves exist all over the world and have been at war with each other for thousands of years.
Thats all for now!! Have a great week.
