Seed | Ania Ahlborn
With nothing but the clothes on his back -- and something horrific snapping at his heels -- Jack Winter fled his rural Georgia home when he was just a boy. Watching the world he knew vanish in a trucker's rearview mirror, he thought he was leaving an unspeakable nightmare behind forever.Now, years later, the bright new future he's built suddenly turns pitch black, as something fiendishly familiar looms dead ahead.Surviving a violent car crash seems like a miracle for Jack's family, but Jack knows there's nothing divine about it. The profound evil he uncovered as a boy has finally found him again. The thing that crouched at his bedside with soulless eyes and grinning, razor-sharp teeth is back with plans for Jack and his angelic youngest daughter, and a chilling promise: I've always been here, and I'll never leave.

Celebrating a rare girls weekend and still reading hard for #screamsbymail I really liked this pick - it had some Head Full of Ghosts vibes. More comments in the travelling notebook.

Wow. Okay. Alrighty then. So that happened. And then I slept with the light on.

This novel seemed to be a mash up of The Shining and The Omen (with a dash of The Exorcist as well). Don‘t want to give much away, but demonic possession is the main theme in this one. And Ahlborn knows just how much detail to include without going over the top. Disturbing, atmospheric and graphic. 4/5 ⭐️

I'm not normally a holiday celebration kinda gal, but seeing all the Halloween scary-ish posts have made me want to read something spooky/scary. I've seen several of you post about this one in the last two weeks ( @TheReadingMermaid @DGRachel @vivastory @reggie ), so I'm gonna try it. Several of this author's books are on a Kindle sale.

DGRachel Good luck! I hope you enjoy it. 2mo

This may be the creepiest book I've ever read. It certainly has stuck with me since I read in back in August 2012. It's one of those where I can remember sitting on my rocking chair in the living room of the townhouse I rented when I first moved to Charlotte. I'll never forget that ending.

Novels featuring #tarotreading, like ones with Ouija board & seances, have to be inventive & seriously sinister, otherwise they run the risk of being the cliche that horror fiction is too often dismissed as. "Seed" features a tarot reading scene that definitely qualifies as memorable.

RIGHT ON TARGET. 9pm on the DOT, #24in28 🙌🏼

Out of all the times I‘ve attempted a #readathon, this may be the 1st time I completed my goals and finished it completely.
What was different this time entirely was that I was living in my new space with just my son and he KNEW I was doing it and he encouraged me. Imagine that.
1,072 pages
4.5 books (including 3 novels, one was an arc, and one for my #screamsbymail book club)

So pleased! 🙂

Seed is a proper southern gothic, well-paced and mysterious, with a solid creep factor. Though I loved the conclusion, I was constantly taken out of the narrative by the immaturity of the children, who are the same age as my own, and can‘t help but wonder how much stronger it would have been if they acted six and ten. Still, a solid summer horror read.

And so I could not let this one go without taking a photo of it - never mind all the cars that were behind me. This sculpture was in front of Capital Tower in Tanjong Pagar here in Singapore. Awesome backdrop for #ScreamsByMail book of the month courtesy of @scripturient - the man at the back was deliberately included to serve as a contrast signifying how huuuge the sculpture is.

To say that I am utterly creeped out by this novel is an understatement. I am only in the first few pages, but I can tell Ahlborn is a master at building up the suspense and the creepazoid factor that is simply goosebumps-inducing. Paired with my fave premium coconut ice cream with green jelly, toasted coconut flakes and peanuts in a bowl of coconut. Because we celebrate tropical goodness the whole year round. #ScreamsByMail #HorrorPostalBookClub

Pickpick

Ania Ahlborn is the Queen of Horror. She‘s a master of slow-growing dread; you know shit‘s about to go down throughout the story, you just don‘t know when and nothing prepares you for how badly it does. Easily the nastiest story I‘ve read this year, and I read The Exorcist.

Mehso-so

I read this in a couple of relatively short sittings. It was fast-paced and held my attention, but in spite of the sinister subject matter, I never felt scared. The story itself is interesting, but the prose is almost completely void of the tension I crave in a horror novel, save for the refreshingly chilling and hopeless ending. There's the skeleton of something good here; I could see it being a cool movie if put in the right hands.
