  2. I love the covers to the books you featured. Hotel Ruby piqued my interest but they both sound good!

  3. I didn't know this book underwent a cover change. I think I'd be more likely to pick it up with the moon on the cover. There is something very eerie about it. Happy Friday!

  4. Oh dear, now I have another book to read. This looks very good. I think I prefer Hotel for the Lost as a title, although the cover for Hotel Ruby looks better. Hope you enjoy it, and have a lovely weekend.

  5. Funny thing is I had to do a double take when you mentioned "which cover/title". Though I love them both, I have to say the first one really drew my eye.
    Great share!

  6. Tough call! Both covers and titles are intriguing in their own way. I do love a good hotel-based book!

  7. Both covers are striking and both evoke strikingly different emotions. I can't choose! Enjoy them both

  8. Oh boy! This is one for me! I like both covers but leaning towards the first one. It's eerie and mysterious.
    Have a lovely weekend, Freda:)

  13. The covers and "Stay Tonight. Stay Forever" already have me scared! LOL May be to spooky for this woman. I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine... http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewsDOAPC

  14. So is that the same book with two different titles? I have seen the Hotel Ruby around and have wanted to read it. I hope it's good! :)

    1. Yes, it's the same but has been re-named, Hotel of the Lost.

  15. I liked the original Hotel Ruby cover, but the second seems much more spooky.

  16. Hotel for the Lost sounds so exciting and the cover just draws me in making me want more. Even better then that snippet is driving me crazy. A forgotten past? Now I am dying to know what that past is.

  17. I love the covers for both. Hotel Ruby is on my TBR and I didn't realize that it had another name. This sounds really good. Being from a warm weather area I can identify about the not so sensible scarves!

  18. My eyes are so bad with that tiny print -- I couldn't see it's the same book, new title. Sounds SCARY! Well written, scary.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
