Book Review: My Best Friend’s Exorcism

I don’t know exactly where to begin with this book, tbh. This had all the makings to be a perfect me book. Campy, 80s setting with suspense and the strange. What particularly drew my attention to this title was that it’d been on a list of books to read if you love Stranger Things. (Don’t know what Stranger Things is? Get on Netflix now.) I also have an odd adoration to that cover. Yeah yeah, don’t judge a book by a cover… But you and I both know that everyone does it anyway. It’s not a terrible book at all. more »

Book Review: My Best Friend’s Exorcism

I can’t say that I knew about My Best Friend’s Exorcism before it was pitched to me by the publisher, but once I started reading it, I liked it immediately. I had a feeling it was going to be a little of a black comedy/horror, and it was a bit. That’s how Horrorstor was for me too, and as much as I wanted to love Horrorstor, in the end, it just fell flat for me. There were things I liked, however, and it was enough for me to read the author’s next book. Hence why I agreed to review My Best more »

Blog Tour: My Best Friend’s Exorcism

I love Quirk Books. I really do. They publish some of the most unique books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. Though not everything has been my favorite, I so appreciate how different they are as a publisher. They take risks, and they’re doing what no other publisher is doing. So when they asked me to be part of a blog tour, of course I was going to say yes. I’ll do whatever I can to make them visible and to get their books out there where our blog readers can see them! We have Grady Hendrix on the more »

Book Review: Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix

I keep trying to read thrillers or horror novels throughout the month of October. I’ve done really great so far, and I was really looking forward to Horrorstör. Obviously I got this book a while back, so I am a little late in getting to it, but this month was the perfect month to read it anyway, so it kinda worked out. But alas, this book and I were not meant to be. It started off great. The creep factor built slowly, and even though I had a couple early issues with the writing, I was still enjoying myself. But as more »

Book Review:  Horrorstör

I’ve wanted to read Horrorstor immediately after hearing about it.  I loved the quirky concept and just the premise in general.  A horror story set inside of an Ikea, or in this case, an Orsk: a knock off of Ikea with even cheaper products.  I wasn’t expecting much from the book itself, honestly, but I thought it would be a really fun read.  And I was totally into the design. So, this book is designed like a catalog.  Even the shape and the feel of it reminds me of a catalog.  The opening pages are all the things you’d see more »
