Book Review – White Smoke by Tiffany D. Jackson

WHITE SMOKE was such a mixed bag for me, which was a little disappointing because I honestly expected to completely love it. That isn’t to say I didn’t enjoy it, because I had fun reading it! But I expected to FULLY LOVE it, and then had some issues. It went to places I definitely wasn’tContinue reading “Book Review – White Smoke by Tiffany D. Jackson”

Book Review – Penance by Kanae Minato

This was my first book by Kanae Minato, but based on how much I loved it, I already bought her debut and plan to read soon. I’ve been trying to branch out a bit into more translated books since I’m noticing a more Western lean to my reading habits lately, and this was highly recommendedContinue reading “Book Review – Penance by Kanae Minato”

Book Review – Our Last Echoes by Kate Alice Marshall

This one has been compared a lot to shows like Twin Peaks & The X-Files, both of which I love, so I knew going into it that I’d either be very, very happy or very, very disappointed. First and foremost, I absolutely freaking LOVED this book & I am 100% going to buy and readContinue reading “Book Review – Our Last Echoes by Kate Alice Marshall”

Book Review – Someone To Share My Nightmares by Sonora Taylor

I’m going to be embarassingly honest here, folks: romance in horror – or “horromance” as it’s called ~in bookish circles~ – has been one of my favorite things since I was a weirdo goth teen discovering smutty vampire books for the first time. There’s just something incredibly intoxicating about a well-done mixture of danger andContinue reading “Book Review – Someone To Share My Nightmares by Sonora Taylor”

Book Review – Fangs by Sarah Andersen

  Who knew an undead love story could be so wholesome & adorable? First, I want to make a note that although this is shelved as a “comic / graphic novel”, it’s more like a collection of small snippets you’d find online – little quick, cute comics that don’t tell a big central story, butContinue reading “Book Review – Fangs by Sarah Andersen”

Book Review – The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell

What is it about thrillers that make them go-to comfort reads for me? Is there something wrong with me that tragedies & disappearances are what I turn to when I’m in a reading slump & in need of something “safe”? Who else is with me on this, please, anyone? lmao Okay, but for real. ThisContinue reading “Book Review – The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell”

Book Review – Cats of the Pacific Northwest by J.W. Donley

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and that’s exactly the type of situation David and his girlfriend find themselves in on a spontaneous backpacking trip gone wrong. Alone and starving, the two begin losing all hope when they find something strange lurking in the woods – or, rather, when it finds them! Creepy and disquieting, CATS OF THEContinue reading “Book Review – Cats of the Pacific Northwest by J.W. Donley”

Book Review – Inheriting Her Ghosts by S.H. Cooper

I buddy read this one with a few pals on the LOHF team, and I can already tell it’s going to be a favorite amongst fans of both the horror genre in general, and more specifically, gothic horror. I haven’t heard a bad word about it, and didn’t have a single thing to say thatContinue reading “Book Review – Inheriting Her Ghosts by S.H. Cooper”

Book Review – Unfortunate Elements of My Anatomy by Hailey Piper

“I’m not a chainsaw kind of girl, but her teeth sure are pretty when they catch the sunshine.” Single author collections tend to be hit or miss for me, because even when I absolutely love the author’s work in a longer format, sometimes the shorter versions just don’t work for my brain and attention span.Continue reading “Book Review – Unfortunate Elements of My Anatomy by Hailey Piper”

Book Review – All Hail the House Gods by Andrew J. Stone

What a strange little book! I loved this one – it wasn’t what I was expecting at all, and honestly, that made it so much better. This is the first time I’ve read anything by Andrew J. Stone (although he recently released another book you can grab here!), and I managed to squeeze it inContinue reading “Book Review – All Hail the House Gods by Andrew J. Stone”
