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…

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…

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…

The Prisoner of Hell Gate: A Novel

Four grad students and their young professor are lounging on their boat around North Brother Island. The island houses the remains of the hospital that treated the typhoid outbreak of the early 1900’s. It is also where “Typhoid Mary” was kept for many years until her death. But what if she was still alive? Boredom…

Three Gothic Novels

Though I usually do not review books I read for class I actually liked this one. (And I haven’t done much pleasure reading lately.) This specific edition includes three early American Gothic novels: Wieland, Arthur Mervyn, and Edgar Huntly. I enjoyed Wieland the most while the others were just OK. These novels and this author…
