Mexican Gothic

Earlier this year I read Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s novel Gods of Jade and Shadow, which I really enjoyed but had a few minor problems with. However, I think Mexican Gothic really shows the writing talent that Moreno-Garcia has, and she seems to be getting a lot of well-deserved hype for her newest novel. Mexican Gothic takes…

The Institute

I have never, ever bought a brand new Stephen King book until now. Why? Well, partially because I got into his work very late, and I’m also very cheap and usually do not buy a book at cover price. Buuuut… I love this cover, and I just really, really wanted to read a brand new…

Fellside

I’m sure most of us here remember or have heard of The Girl With All of the Gifts. It is sci-fi/post-apocalyptic novel with action, surprises, heart-warming moments, and it gives a lot of food for thought with its themes. The author’s next novel, Fellside, is more of a mystery/thriller with a touch of fantasy. Fellside…

Heart-Shaped Box

If you’ve been following this blog for a bit, you know that I have become a fan of Joe Hill’s novels. I read and loved NOS4A2, and I read and liked Horns by him. So, I decided to go back to his first novel. Unfortunately, I didn’t love it as much as the previous two…

Unbury Carol

I loved Malerman’s Bird Box, and I was very excited for his new book. However, I just don’t think this was my cup of tea. Carol Evers is beloved and wealthy woman in her small western town, but she has a secret. Sometimes she goes into a death-like coma, but she always wakes up a…

Horns

After reading and loving N0S4A2 by Joe Hill, I had to check out more of his work. Horns, his second novel, is a fun and interesting ride, but it is not quite as polished as N0S4A2. Ignatius Perrish and Merrin Williams were an inseparable high school couple. When their adult lives threatened to distance them,…

N0S4A2

This book was just plain fun. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book as much as I enjoyed this one. I started N0S4A2 when I was on a long drive with my boyfriend. I will admit that we both laughed at how crazy and unrelated everything in the novel seemed to be.…

Slade House

I was in the mood for something creepy and Slade House has been hiding on my shelves for a while. It’s a small book, it can hide easily. I also heard it was related to David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks, but after a quick Google I guess it doesn’t matter what order you read them…

Bird Box

Something is out there and when you see it you go violently insane. What is this thing… or things? Is it actually a being? A sickness of the mind? It’s hard to say when no one has lived to tell what happened to them. The world has effectively ended. Society as we know has come…

The String Diaries

It’s dark, they’re in the middle of nowhere, and Hannah’s husband is bleeding to death in the passenger’s seat. She can’t risk taking him to a hospital and she can’t stop running because someone is after them. Hannah doesn’t even know who is after them though. It could even be her own father… because this…
