Book Review: My Heart is a Chainsaw
“Horror’s not a symptom, it’s a love affair.”
My Heart is a Chainsaw was my third book by Stephen Graham Jones and dare I say my favorite so far? A lot of reviews talks about how this book is the slowest of slow burns, and it is, but in my review I want to talk about how this book made me FEEL.Continue reading
Author Interview: Ally Malinenko
I recently had the opportunity to interview Ally Malinenko about her newest book, Ghost Girl. This middle-grade story is perfect for Fall, and is sure to get you in the mood in Halloween and spooky season! You can read my full review here.
Book Review: Ghost Girl
I once again fooled myself into thinking that a cute, spooky, middle grade novel wouldn’t be as scary as reading adult horror😱 While the thrills and chills in this book aren’t totally the same as YA or adult horror, it’s still frightening, especially considering its intended audience is for kids ages 8–12.
Book Review: When Things Get Dark: Stories Inspired by Shirley Jackson
Do you like reading short stories? I have ever since high school when I first read “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson. I remember doing my homework reading it and thinking “this story is so boring” and then BAM! The ending totally throws you for a loop and you realize that it isn’t some boring small-town event, but a horrifying, unthinkable tradition.
Ever since then I’ve been a huge fan of Jackson’s work and have slowly been making my way through her novels and short story collections. When I saw When Things Get Dark: Stories Inspired by Shirley Jackson I knew I had to read it. I was itching to see how other authors would incorporate her unique brand of horror, and friends, it did not disappoint.
Review: The Autumnal
I read a bind-up of this series that collected volume 1–8 all in one book. As soon as I saw the cover, I knew I needed it. Fall-themed body horror? Yes!Continue reading
Review: Please Love Me At My Worst
Why is it the books you absolutely love are always the hardest ones to write reviews for? I was so excited to see Michaela Angemeer had a new book coming out, and screamed when I got a digital ARC. Her You’ll Come Back To Yourself Journal has helped me so much over the past few months, and I knew whatever she wrote next would also be incredible.Continue reading
Review: A Psalm for the Wild-built
Never have it ever read such a cozy sci-fi book! Some folks in book club said A Psalm for the Wild-built by Becky Chambers felt like a warm hug, and others said it was similar to the feels you get watching a Pixar movie. I agree with both sentiments!Continue reading
Review: Klara and the Sun
This might be an unpopular opinion, but I did not like this book. Before we get too deep into this review, I will say, I fully respect and understand what Kazuo Ishiguro was doing with Klara and the Sun, but it was not for me. At all.Continue reading
Friends, I don’t even know where to start with this one. When I originally saw the cover and read the synopsis for Nightbitch by Rachel Yoder, I was so excited. It sounded so fucked up and weird I just had to have it! Well, it took me over a week to get through, and that’s even with skimming the last 20 or so pages.Continue reading
