Loved this novella. Gothic mushroom based horror? Yes please. Plus the queer element is excellent.

Interesting book. I had read that it‘s one of the best revenge stories, so I was excited to read it. And it was a great revenge story, it just took a long time to get there. 200+ pages of getting to know the characters and their lives did make the last 100 pages satisfactory, but I did have to remind myself this was written in 1980. Overall, good slow burn revenge.

5*/5 ⭐

Uno dei miei libri preferiti, che ho amato ugualmente (se non di più) ad ogni rilettura.

One of my favorite books, I still loved it equally (if not even more) each time I reread it.

"That truth is that monsters are real, and ghosts are real, too. They live inside us, and sometimes they win. That our better angels sometimes - often! - win instead, in spite of all odds, is another truth of The Shining."

I have loved this series, though this final installment is the weakest of the three books for me. It could have used editing and there‘s a section this goes past horror/gore into straight silliness (and I don‘t think he intended that). Also, the audio isn‘t helped by the author reading the last chapter in a combo of monotone and upspeak that was hard to pay attention to. But it was fun to spend a little more time with Jade.

vivastory I have read only book 1 in the trilogy so far, but OMG the scene in the elk tunnel. I read it last yr & I had such a visceral reaction to that scene 1d
TrishB I do really want to read this series, but I‘ve been told there‘s a lot of animal cruelty and it puts me off? 1d
Hooked_on_books @vivastory I don‘t remember that scene specifically, but he certainly goes the distance with the horror and gore. 1d
Hooked_on_books @TrishB The critters at the receiving end of the violence in this series are human for sure. I don‘t remember details of the first two but remember loving them and I‘m not ok with animal cruelty. So I can‘t say some animal death isn‘t present, but if it is, it definitely isn‘t a focus. 1d
TrishB Cool, thank you 👍🏻 1d

Bird Box: A Novel | Josh Malerman

I adore this book! It has just the right amount of scary, found family, apocalypse, thriller to it! I could talk about this book for hours!! I love analyzing characters, relationships, basically everything. I just can‘t stop thinking about it!

Don‘t forget, my #DailyDracula Littens, that Re: Dracula is going to be reuploading their audio dramatization of Dracula on the same days the newsletter goes out. ❤️🦇❤️

I listened last year, and honestly, this blew my socks off. I prefer this one to every other audiobook of this that I‘ve listened to. https://pod.link/1679833472

Clare-Dragonfly I‘m very picky about audio fiction but I‘ll have to give this a try! 22h

This book is horrifying… in a good way! I am honest to god spooked by this book. The situation is dire and the details are spookily specific… definitely not for anyone who gets scared too easily.

Horrorstor: A Novel | Grady Hendrix

This book has been on my TBR list since I first heard about it shortly after publication, yet for some reason I only just read it. Took me long enough, but once I had my hands on a copy I couldn't put it down. Hilarious and Terrifying! What a brilliant idea Hendrix had when he brainstormed this horrifying novel of craziness. I loved all the blatant nods to Ikea and how there were illustrations, product fliers, and ads throughout the book. ⤵️

monkeygirlsmama ⤴️ All of this added to the story's ambience or vibe of the setting which drew me into the story more than making me a silent observer. And I thought it was genius how as the story progressed and evolved so did the products being advertised. No longer standard knock offs but instead ones devised solely for the sake of the story. So good; so creepy! 2d
Hooked_on_books Love him, love this book! 2d
CaroPi I love him! His books have a great mix between horror and humor so they are easy to enjoy. I have in my TBR the latest one 1d
monkeygirlsmama I don't know anything about what else he has out, but I'm going to have to investigate. @CaroPi 20h

Oh my dear god. This is such a bizarre novel. C. J. Tudor has written another scary as hell thriller and I love it. Vampyrs live among us. They live in Colonies and all is definitely not well. A horrible history exists between them and humans and it is an uneasy coexistence, to say the least. Does the end of this book hint at a sequel? I dearly hope so. Barbara Atkins is a force to be reckoned with. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
