Abraham’s Boys by Joe Hill

I’ve been in a reading and writing slump these past few weeks and that explains the exclusive short stories reviews. You can read Abraham’s Boys here. Max and Rudy are Abraham Van Helsing’s sons who are obliged to obey their father’s strict rules. Most especially not staying out after sunset and ensuring they never went…

Selfies by Lavie Tidhar

Selfies is a short horror story that centers on a phone, more specifically as the name already implies, the photos taken on a phone. You can read it for free by clicking here. Ellie’s curiosity drove her into a secondhand shop she couldn’t remember ever existing. Once inside, her attention was pinned on the baby…

Final Girls by Riley Sager

Yup, another Sager book consecutively. Who knows if the next review will also be his book? Who knows, right? ; ) Stephen King’s review made me use this cover. And although it wasn’t great for me -good most definitely- and nothing like Home Before Dark, it is more of my problem rather than the story’s.…

Home Before Dark by Riley Sager

In case it isn’t obvious enough, I’ll mention, again, that I love loop-ending books. It justifies my belief that I’ve read two books in one. Home Before Dark however literally has two books in one. You bet I’ll be ticking off two books on my goal for this year instead of one. Honestly? I didn’t…

Monster by Frank Peretti

Almost a month ago, I came across a list of monster horror novels and from that list I got Jaws -still reading it on and off- Monster, and others. Even though the monsters I’d rather watch/read about are those nameless, frightening, unknown monsters, these known monsters come with their benefits. They exist. Let’s have a…

The Witch Of Willow Hall by Hester Fox

Hester Fox’s writing style is incredible. She’s the first author I had to google, to know who she was and how she was able to write so well I forgot where I was. It’s…magical. Not too descriptive -I suck at reading and understanding in-depth description- and simple. Let’s have a look at the Goodreads blurb:…

Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake

Anna Dressed In Blood is a YA horror novel told through the POV of Cas, a young ghost hunter. I suspect Cas is an unreliable character. Which explains the choppy plot. Let’s have a look at the Goodreads blurb: Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead. So did his father before…

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Mexican Gothic, from its name, is a gothic horror novel with a gorgeous cover. It turns out we do judge a book by its cover. Now believe me? I know you do. I read the Goodreads review on this book because when I was done with it I wanted to see what others thought about…

Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Nothing beats Hercule Poirot’s mystery series. I enjoyed this book on a scale I haven’t enjoyed most books. And it could be because of Agatha Christie’s writing style. Similar, not so similar, writing style to Edgar Allan Poe and Ernest Hemingway. I love reading from all of these authors. I don’t skim but read every…

The Collector by John Fowles

The Collector is a masterpiece. I can’t call it anything otherwise. It’s also the first stalker novel I’ve read outside of crime fiction. Specifically Tess Gerritsen books which have collected dust on my shelf. I might review some of them when I brush up what they were about. So heads up for those mystery and…
