Just some blurbs about why I nominated these.

Since horror is forever alone in the voting (close, but not oh, gawd I cannot spell today no cigar), I thought I'd nom Bird Box, since I've heard good general word-of-mouth things about it. I don't know if it will meet eurii's horror-lust, though. XD

The Last Dragonslayer is the only Jasper Fforde series that I haven't dipped a toe into yet, and since BCF has already read 2 Fforde books, I thought, "why not?" It is the first in a series, though (but there are 3 books out already).

And The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry seems more like a general sort of novel, although it could probably fit in romance, too. (This was my 3rd choice and I was wracking my brain for something general.)

bahaha XD horror-lust XD you don't know how true that is! Every single time my husband asks me what kind of movie I want to watch it's always horror, hehee
I cannot guarantee that this will meet your needs, but it is overwhelmingly tagged as horror on GR. :-> From what people said in the reviews, it's more of a Japanese-style psychological horror deal, so it's probably not gonna be like Saw, haha.
I thought The Last Dragonslayer was a really sweet little book. I read it while I was on my maternity leave last year! Very different from Shades of Grey (which is my favorite favorite) but it's a fun YA book
Ugh, don't remind me about Shades of Grey. It seems Jasper is putting that series on the very back-burner, and I don't like it. He should clone himself. *nods*

But glad to hear that his other book was good. I am normally leery of YA, but I am hoping there are no romantic triangles in this series, since Jasper doesn't usually do that.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane
The Ocean at the End of the Lane (I honestly can't remember if the club has read this or not, I know it has at least been nominated before)

We haven't read Ocean at the End of the Lane :) we have read Oryx and Crake - it was a couple of years ago though!
Aw, boo. A friend has been poking me to read Oryx and Crake. What was the general consensus? He loves the series, but I can't decide if I think it sounds interesting or not. And can I nominate another book then?
You can still nominate Oryx and Crake if you want, especially since it has been a while there is potential for votes :)

Personally I felt the book had a slow start, but I really liked the ending. I need to read the next book soon but I've been slacking!
Oh yeah, that said, if you'd like to pick another book, go for it :)
I've been wanting to read The Ocean at the End of the Lane for a while now :)
