What is WRONG with me?

I have 97 books on my TBR file and I went to Barnes and Noble tonight and came out with 6 more. Luckily, 4 are on the wishlists. I would like to know if any of you have read the following, because I'm in the mood for a really good read. The 6 I purchased tonight are:

  • The Woods Are Dark by Richard Laymon
  • Bloodstone by Nate Kenyon
  • Tower Hill by Sarah Pinborough
  • Coffin County by Gary A. Braunbeck
  • The 5th Witch by Graham Masterton
  • The Wheel of Darkness by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child

Any favorites? (Even if it's not one of the 6) I probably have them on my bookshelf somewhere.

I just read The Woods are Dark,  and while it is good, it's a very quick read.  Bloodstone and Tower Hill are TBR, but I have heard good things about Bloodstone in it's original release, and I believe an excised bit was added back in for the PB, clearing up a minor situation that had been left unexplained.  Coffin County went missing on it's way to me, but you can't go wrong with Braunbeck (IMO).  i have not read or heard much about the last 2, sorry.  TWAD is very similar in style to Offspring and Off Season by Ketchum, if you liked those.

Just started The Woods Are Dark; the one that's restored and uncut by his daughter.  If I didn't have to watch a couple of munchkins , I'd probably finish it today.

I haven't read anything by Braunbeck, so that's good to know.

I did like Ketchum's books, so I will probably enjoy TWAD.

Who can pass on cheap books?  I miss the times when Leisure books were sold at my local supermarket in bins.  They use to have stickers that said 2 for 6 or 7 dollars.  That was how I first discovered Layman, Simon Clark and Ed Lee.
