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”

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”
