This book is best as a physical copy, because it is made to look like an old school catalogue (which is definitely based on ikea)

This was the first Grady Hendrix I read, and I enjoyed this tale of a #Haunted furniture store 👻

Oh my! Hendrix sure likes to use rats in his horror stories 😳 I also have a thing about snot - when little, people blowing their noses used to make me gag - so let me tell you, there is a certain scene in this book that was A Problem lol.
Anyway, good setting, entertaining integration of the increasingly disturbing ikea-like product descriptions, but I could do without the body horror 🤢
Read for #aam and #scarathlon

Soubhiville I actually like rats, but definitely not snot… I‘ve heard this is a really unique book. 2mo
Larkken @Soubhiville I like rats too! Grady seems to like them for ambiance in a way that is a bit unique 2mo

#authoramonth22 I'm too wimpy for most horror, but I think book challenges are toughening me up. 😄 This was pretty fun in a chilling sort of way, or do I mean the opposite? The Ikea parody was spot on.

My first Grady Hendrix and I LOVED it! I especially enjoyed the design of the book to be like an ordering catalog. I do wish it had been longer, but I‘m glad it ended the way it did as well. The buildup was nice and I was glad Hendrix didn‘t shy away from the gore. A characters fingernail being ripped off “like a wet postage stamp” is exactly the kind of descriptive nastiness I live for in my horror.

This is such a uniquely fun and scary book! Hendrix creates the world of an IKEA knockoff in Cleveland where strange things are happening. Weird smells and texts from strange numbers saying “help”. The assistant manager asks two employees to stay overnight to find out what happens when the cameras go dark. Of course they get more than they bargained for. I LOVE the details that turn this print book into a catalogue. Highly recommend! #AuthorAMonth

My first book of #scarathlon2022 was this reread which I LOVED as much as last time. So scary, great characters, so original, and this time round I found I was really touched by all the material about good work, bad work, worthwhile work. Go basil, the middle manager who won‘t let the demonic hordes take the cashiers he‘s responsible for.

#teamslaughter @Clwojick +6 non team read plus word search and readathons which I‘ll add on my spreadsheet

Probably my fave Hendrix so far, and that‘s mostly because I cringed, I laughed and I snorted while driving home. It was both creepy and disgusting, and yet hilarious (the product intros to each chapter, that get increasingly disturbing… amazing!). I feel like I won‘t be visiting an IKEA anytime soon. But if I do, I know what I‘ll be keeping an eye out for.

Such a great day! Starts with a yoga fest and ended with meeting Grady Hendrix. He talked for over an hour and then he said he would stay until the last book was signed! Luckily I was like 10th in line, so I only waited about 30 minutes. He signed all 3! Paperbacks from Hell came with the event ticket, but I bought the other two. If he comes to your area, I highly suggest going!!

JoeMo Paperbacks from Hell will give you a hilariously told history of horror fiction from the 1970s or so and onward. I learned of some really solid novels based on the feedback he provided and the I‘ve read even more “who the hell published this?” outrageous type of books that are so ridiculous, they must be read to be believed! Some titles are back in print thanks to Hendrix bringing attention to them! 2mo

In this book, we follow Amy, who is trying to make ends meet working at a furniture retail store called Orsk; think of it as a rip off of IKEA. She hates working there and she hates her coworkers. But when her supervisor Basil asks her and her coworkers to stay overnight for overtime, that‘s when things go bump in the night.

I quite enjoyed this! This was a fun and quirky little horror book. I can‘t wait to read his other books!

In true Grady Hendrix style, this story starts as almost cozily atmospheric, in an off-brand-Ikea way, and then devolves sharply into gruesome, graphic horror. Disturbing and satisfying.

This was definitely weird, but I like weird books. This book is about a store that is an IKEA knock off and when they close for the night, creepy things happen. I liked the characters and the fact that this was funny in a lot of parts, but also scary at some points. Definitely made me freaked out to shop in Ikea late at night! I thought it ended well and I really enjoyed the way it all came together in the end.

A haunted second rate Ikea and your manager is making you investigate it? What could possibly go wrong?! I loved the story - it was campy and cheesy at times (and a little graphic with the horror) but also there were some laughable moments, especially if you have had a retail job and had to deal with corporate.

I LOVED this. It‘s about an IKEA-like store that some employees learn is haunted. I know it‘s a little gimmicky, but I adore how the book looks like an ikea catalog. I love how each chapter starts with a different piece of furniture, and they become more sinister as the story goes on. I love how some of the furniture titles mean something (Drittsekk is Norwegian for sh*t bag). Sooooo much fun!

I usually only audio nonfiction but I saw this free on Audible and ❤️ Grady Hendrix. The reason I don‘t do fiction is because my mind wanders and I‘m like “wait who? Where? why?” But I got to thinking it might take practice? Jury is out on that but this held my attention.

Employees of a wannabe IKEA hunt ghosts after hours and try to clean up before Corporate comes. As someone who served time in retail hell it was hilarious. Lots of personality.

I DNFd this one about halfway through. I was really excited about a book in the format of the IKEA catalog, because I‘m very into design, but that conceit isn‘t really carried very far into the story itself. This is the second Grady Hendrix title I‘ve read this month, and I think I‘m just not a fan. I find the writing style slightly off putting and the character development a bit lacking… so moving on…

Amy and Basil work at a giant labyrinthine furniture store that was built on the site of a former prison.

I don't get scared easily, especially when reading books, but this one might cause some nightmares. But I still want to read more by Gray Hendrix for some crazy reason. 🤣
