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”

Book Review – Come Closer by Sara Gran

This was my #LadiesFirst21 choice for Ladies of Horror Fiction’s first reading challenge of the year, and whoa! What a great way to start off my reading in 2021! I love subtle, quiet horror – it can be difficult for a story to nail, often edging into “too subtle” territory where not enough happens, andContinue reading “Book Review – Come Closer by Sara Gran”

Book Review – Saltblood by T.C. Parker

When I picked up this book, I thought I was getting a spooky island-based horror mystery – and I did, just so we’re clear! But what I didn’t expect to get was corporate conspiracy, social/political commentary relevant to the real world right now, and a cast of morally gray women that I’d absolutely fall inContinue reading “Book Review – Saltblood by T.C. Parker”

Book Review – Into the Forest and All the Way Through by Cynthia Pelayo

“Into the forest and all the way through, I ask you to follow my voice.” This is a hard book for me to write about, as probably made evident by the fact that it took me nearly 2 months to read, and then almost 4 more to write a review on it. I want toContinue reading “Book Review – Into the Forest and All the Way Through by Cynthia Pelayo”

Book Review – Helena by Claire L. Smith

“I only talk with the dead, and they’re the best at keeping secrets.” I love period stories, especially with horror leanings, so it’s no surprise that this one about Helena Morrigan, a mortician struggling to pay her bills in the 1800s, peaked my interest. In addition to her financial woes, Helena also struggles with ghostsContinue reading “Book Review – Helena by Claire L. Smith”

Book Review – The Strange Tale of Miss Victoria Frank by Kelly Evans

I absolutely love historical fiction, especially when it involves characters from real history whose lives I find very interesting. Nikola Tesla is one of those people for me, with his inventions and visions of what could be setting him apart from a lot of people from his time. From movies to even other fiction, IContinue reading “Book Review – The Strange Tale of Miss Victoria Frank by Kelly Evans”

Book Review – The Worm and His Kings by Hailey Piper

“They were dangerous because they were too high on their own fantasies to think straight, and no one would question them.” I’ll be the first person to admit that I’m not a huge consumer of media that’d fall within the ‘cosmic horror’ sphere; that isn’t to say that I don’t like the subgenre, but myContinue reading “Book Review – The Worm and His Kings by Hailey Piper”

Book Review – Food Fright by Nico Bell

How many times can I go on and on about how much I love Unnerving’s REWIND OR DIE series before someone yells at me to shut up? ‘Cause I love it, and that love grows stronger with each entry in the series that I start, expecting to just read a few pages of, only toContinue reading “Book Review – Food Fright by Nico Bell”

Book Review – The Hereafter Bytes by Vincent Scott

“Normality is subjective.” Anyone who has been following my blog for awhile knows that while I lean heavily into the horror genre, there are sprinklings here and there of others that I love as well, with science fiction being a huge one that I grew up enjoying. Give me a well-told story set in theContinue reading “Book Review – The Hereafter Bytes by Vincent Scott”

Novella Review – Rolling in the Deep by Mira Grant

“Leave the dark places in the sea for fools and explorers.” This is a short story that counts as 0.5 in the “Rolling in the Deep” series. The author also writes books under another name – Seanan McGuire – although when I picked this up, I hadn’t read anything else by her. (I have sinceContinue reading “Novella Review – Rolling in the Deep by Mira Grant”
