A Cold Season (Library Hardback)

A Cold Season by Alison Littlewood

  • File Size: 434 KB
  • Print Length: 384 pages
  • Publisher: Jo Fletcher Books (December 22, 2011)

Cass is building a new life for herself and her young son Ben after the death of her soldier husband Pete, returning to the village where she lived as a child. But their idyllic new home is not what she expected: the other flats are all empty, there’s strange graffiti on the walls, and the villagers are a bit odd. And when an unexpectedly heavy snowstorm maroons the village, things get even harder. Ben is changing, he’s surly and aggressive and Cass’s only confidant is the smooth, charming Theodore Remick, the stand-in headmaster. Not everyone approves of Cass’s growing closeness to Mr Remick, and it soon becomes obvious he’s not all he appears to be either. If she is to protect her beloved son, Cass is going to have to fight back. Cass realises this is not the first time her family have been targeted by Theodore Remick. But this time, the stakes are immeasurably higher….

My thoughts:

I actually read this a couple of months ago and am just insanely lagging in my reviews, lol.  I have to say that I really enjoyed A Cold Season from start to finish.  I found it to be unique in the aspect that it was a story line that I have not visited repeatedly and it had a true horror aspect/feel to it, which I loved!  There are not many horror genre books out there today that I can say this about.

Ms. Littlewood does a fantastic job of creating a story of a widowed mother and her young child trying to begin a new life again in a place that was thought to be one of safety.  What takes place has Cass endlessly turning thoughts over and over in her head, trying to decide what is real and who to trust; trying to make a good life for her son when things are anything but making sense and making her feel safe and secure.

A Cold Season has a strong theme of evil woven throughout that underlies the entirety of the story.  With this being said, there is really no gore to speak of, just creepiness – which, for me, is a hard aspect to find in many books.  I love the fact that this story was able to creep me out, to a point, without wanting to make me gag with extreme violence.  The characters are very well written and I found myself liking Cass for the most part.  There were times I wanted to give her a good shake, but that fact just shows me that the author was able to create a character and a story that made me feel connected.  I also found the story to be written in a smooth way that had me wanting to continually read to see what happened next.  I also have to say that I liked how the ending was played out and the twists and turns that Ms. Littlewood used throughout her story.  I am anxious to read more by this author and would recommend A Cold Season to anyone looking for a creepy, not gory, read.

Day 1 of 31 Days of Spine-tingling reads!

Doctor Sleep (The Shining, #2)Stephen King returns to the character and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. 

On highways across America, a tribe of people called the True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless—mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and spunky twelve-year-old Abra Stone learns, the True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the steam that children with the shining produce when they are slowly tortured to death.

Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel, where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant shining power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.”

Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of devoted readers of The Shining and satisfy anyone new to this icon in the King canon.

Becoming PVT Harmon by Casey Sean Harmon

Please share/support! Goal is to raise $500.00 for the WWP. We can do this!http://www.amazon.com/Becoming-PVT-Harmon-Training-ebook/dp/B00E49XHBM/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1375412213&sr=1-4

“I keep reminding myself that the pain is only temporary. I try not to think about the fact that I still have eight weeks left of this torture…”

This is the journal that I kept between the dates of 20 July and 27 September, 2007–the two months that would change my life forever. This book isn’t meant to educate, nor is it meant to “throw anyone under the bus”–which is a term that Soldiers often use to illustrate the act of ratting out a battle buddy. Names have been altered to protect the identity of those mentioned, and any and all sensitive material has been concealed. Nonetheless, this book contains the actual, raw account of a nineteen-year old man who is on a mission to become a U.S. Army Soldier by braving the relentless challenges of Basic Combat Training. This is a behind-the scenes glimpse at things that you’ll never read about in newspapers or see on television. Through my eyes, you will witness fear, excitement, and death. And you’ll learn what separates a Soldier from a civilian. This is perhaps the only such account written by a current active duty Soldier in publication today.

Every Soldier has a story. This is mine.

I kept a journal the entire time I was going through U.S. Army Basic Combat Training back in 2007. Finally, for the first time ever, I have decided to publish my journal in book form for America to enjoy. Through my eyes, you will witness fear, excitement and death. And you’ll learn what separates a Soldier from a civilian.

(Note: Names have been altered to protect the identities of those mentioned, and any and all sensitive material has been excluded. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this book are my own and do not represent, nor are endorsed by, the United States Army.)

What I am Reading…

I am nearly finished with this one and am having so much fun with it!!!  If you haven’t read the first book, Diary of a Mad Fat Girl, you definitely should!!!  There is so much humor throughout that one cannot help but laugh out loud.  Do be prepared, however, because neither one of these books is for the easily offended, lol!

Happily Ever Madder: Misadventures of a Mad Fat Girl Happily Ever Madder by Stephanie McAfee

Diary of a Mad Fat Girl’s plus-sized spitfire Graciela “Ace” Jones returns in a hilarious new adventure from New York Times bestselling author Stephanie McAfee.

Ace has left the tiny Mississippi town of Bugtussle for the palm fronds and mojitos of Pelican Cove, Florida. She’s finally opening her long-dreamed-of art gallery, is kick-starting a life with her fiancé, Mason, and has vowed to leave her straight-talking, sassy ways behind her. From now on, she’s going to be as sweet as sugar. Unfortunately, something comes along to sour her plans.

That something is Mrs. Lenore Kennashaw and her coterie of crones. They’re a bunch of snippy, snarky, and just plain mean ’ol ladies who aren’t quite as smart or rich as they’d like to think they are. But that doesn’t stop them from treating everyone else like second-class citizens. And when Ace inadvertently takes some of the steam from Mrs. Kennashaw’s stride, she becomes their #1 enemy. But with the support of a new group of fabulous friends, as well as her friends from Bugtussle—and her always-faithful chiweenie Buster Loo—Ace will find a way to make it, even if she has to throw some weight around…

What are you reading?!
