Books from the Backlog: Crowley's Window by Gord Rollo

Carole @ Carole's Random Life In Books has created a fun new feature called Books from the Backlog to spotlight neglected and unloved books that have been sitting on your bookshelf for too long.

If you would like to join in, click the pic above to find out more.

My Neglected Book of the Week will be the oldest on my Kindle. This one was purchased on September 14, 2012. Believe me, I have MUCH older books in my physical tbr pile! I think I have an earlier version of this story because my copy has 92 pages and the version available on Amazon today says it is 150 pages.

The Goodreads Blurbage:

Abby Hawkins was never normal. Born with a birth cowl--a rare birth defect thought to predict psychic abilities--she is haunted by horrible visions. Shortly after her 13th birthday, Abby's parents call in the mysterious Crowley to help their daughter. His interventions rid her of the visions...and her eyes.

Now a beautiful young lady, Abby Hawkins works as a blind fortune teller in a traveling Carnival. When she receives a powerful vision--one depicting the abduction of a little girl--she becomes the sole witness to the crime. Only a young police officer believes her bizarre story, and with his help she embarks upon an investigation that will ultimately reunite her with the madman from her past and bring her to the hellish threshold of Crowley's Window.

Why did I add this book to my tbr pile?  It was free and I recognized the author's name from my old stack of Leisure horror paperbacks in my physical tbr pile. Someday I may actually even read it :)  Have you?


  1. Thanks for joining in! This one sounds interesting and this is the first that I have heard of this author. I hope you whenever you find the time to read it :)

  2. Never heard of it. This is a cool feature! :)

  3. Haven't heard of this one but it sounds chilling :)

  4. Oh, heck. I sure have a lot of books I can talk about in this feature. I might just do that sometime.

  5. Once I get organised I might take part in the feature. It's a good excuse to look at books I enjoyed again.

  6. Maybe I'll join this one too eventually. I think it's great that so many bloggers are trying to look at some of our older books this year! I like the sounds of this one.

  7. I am making some headway with my backlog but I should probably do this too just as a kick in
    the pants lol

  8. This is a lovely meme! I'll be sure to check it out ... though I must admit to having forgotten what's on my TBR, lol!

  9. Everybody join in. We all need more books, right?!

  10. this is such a necessary meme. I feel bad for all those forgotten books! New releases always get all the attention! :)

  11. LOL so many of mine are on the pile because they were free. So hard to resist!
