Spoilers in the comments! I haven‘t read a book this unique since the locked tomb series. This was such an uncomfortable journey and I‘m LIVING for it #horror #scifi

ImpliedNonsense The subtle way that the meaning of “I” changes from the institute to Simone and the very messed nature of so many people in one head was so fun to experience. 4w

“…and I know that they don't intend harm, but it is one thing to know something intellectually and quite another to feel it emotionally. Each time they ignore me, I feel invisible. I feel upset. I want to tell them that I am just as human as the man, just as worthy of acknowledgement. These are little things, but sometimes it is the little things that sting the most.” (20-21)

Something about this series spoke directly to me, and I feel like I am in shock from the force of it. I feel like I finally found the series that gave me the truly evil MC I have been looking for. It was honestly so FUN to be in the shoes of the villain and WIN. To get what you want, circumstances be damned. And then this final book - the inevitable end I knew always had to be coming. It was a punch straight to the heart.

Kingdom of the Wicked | Kerri Maniscalco

This book wasn‘t well written: I was annoyed at how it seemed to just repeat itself in the beginning. But somewhere along the way I became entranced. I have a few more complaints about little stuff (definitely feel like they could have pushed even darker with this one) but I have to rate this well since I‘m so invested in the story that I preordered book 2. “In the end, the monster we feared didn‘t come from Hell. He came from privilege.”

This book is easily now one of my favorites of all time. It has something about it- that little bit of magic that REALLY good books have. I want more than anything to read it for the first time again.

“It's the little things, I expect. Little treasures we find without knowing their origin. And they come when we least expect them. It's beautiful, when you think about it.”

The Stepford Wives | Ira Levin
Pickpick

I have so many thoughts about this book. I feel like it doesn‘t fit the “what does it mean to be human” theme that I‘ve been doing lately because it only focuses on the transhuman women briefly. We don‘t get to hear from those women at all. At the same time that is kind of what makes this book so scary. It suggests that those women have no stories to tell.

“They are treating my spilled blood with chemicals because they think it will grow duplicates. It will not. Duplicates are sterile... Drones have no fear of laying eggs.”

The second book is not as good as the first but still pretty damn good.

I highly recommend these books for anyone who likes #weirdfiction

To me, Romie Futch is entirely unlikeable. And it is incredibly hard to get past a slow plot line when you don‘t even like the characters. If I didn‘t have to read this for a class I would have bailed on it because I have too many books to read in my life to wait on a book to get interesting. Plus, the ending wasn‘t even satisfying. I appreciate the writing style but hate the story itself.

So, I‘ve got a question for you readers. Who/what do you think the voice Eve/Ally and Margo hear is? It seems to have a supernatural element to it but also might be a representation of power infecting the mind. I think it‘s kind of supernatural because the voice mentions that it was around in the dark ages and as soon as Ally stands up to it it appears to Margo. I‘m really curious to hear what others think!

rretzler At first, I thought Allie was schizophrenic - that the voice had developed to help her deal with the trauma of her younger life. Until Margot heard the voice. Granted Margot had some trauma too, but nothing like Allie. But possibly it was enough in Margot‘s life to cause a mental break for her as well? Seems a little too coincidental, but that seems a better answer to me given the overall message of the book than the supernatural. 3y
rretzler Great discussion question, BTW! 3y
ImpliedNonsense @rretzler that‘s a great point! I thought the same thing at first too. 3y

I‘ve been listening to this book on Libby for the past few days and I‘ve only got about an hour left. I mean the book is interesting and everything but I felt like it could have been pushed farther. It has a black mirror feeling but it doesn‘t disturb me enough- like it‘s ever so slightly in the twilight zone. The only other thing of complaint is that the narrators all sound like robots for some reason? I don‘t know (it might just be me).

Horrorstor: A Novel | Grady Hendrix

Absolutely loved this read. It felt pretty short on the kindle, and it moved a little fast, but I wasn‘t mad at it. I liked the character development and also how unique they all were from each other. This is a really good read especially for the Halloween season!

ImpliedNonsense I also really liked how the main character and her boss DIDN‘T end up in a romantic relationship. I was really afraid they would just because of the weird hatred between them in the beginning. It felt like it was set up for an ‘accidental love‘ situation. (edited) 4y

I enjoyed this book overall but I felt like it was too slow in the beginning and then all of sudden it was over. Like there was no real apex of the story it just kinda... stopped. And then was done. The details of the possession earned a 10/10 on the GROSS scale.
