Hello and welcome to the first Shelfie Spotlight!

What is Shelfie Spotlight you ask? Shelfie Spotlight is a bi-weekly post where I pick a book (or ebook) from my shelves and discuss it. It will most likely be a book I haven’t read and I’ll ask your opinion of whether or not I should keep it. I figured this would be a fun, interactive way to clean out my shelves!

If you are interested in doing a post like this, link me in your post so I can see it! 🙂

Author: Jonathan L. Howard
Format: Hardcover
Genre: Fantasy
Publication Year: 2009

Johannes Cabal sold his soul years ago in order to learn the laws of necromancy. Now he wants it back. Amused and slightly bored, Satan proposes a little wager: Johannes has to persuade one hundred people to sign over their souls or he will be damned forever. This time for real. Accepting the bargain, Jonathan is given one calendar year and a traveling carnival to complete his task. With little time to waste, Johannes raises a motley crew from the dead and enlists his brother, Horst, a charismatic vampire to help him run his nefarious road show, resulting in mayhem at every turn.


I bought this book way back in college, I believe somewhere between 2011- 2012. I remember when I was checking out, the store owner told me she loved the book and it was an amazing and fun read. But, it’s 2019 and I still have not read it.

It’s part of a series, and all of the covers have this amazing minimalist design with splashes of red.

It’s been on the cusp of “get rid of” for a while now but for some reason I can’t seem to part with it.


What do you think — keep or let go?

  1. It is not one I would read, but it is your taste, not mine. Having said that, if you have owned it for 7 or 8 years and not read it, what are the chances you ever will?

    1. That’s what I’m thinking. I’ve had it for so long, and my reading interests have changed since then so I’m not sure if I will ever read it.
