Review: Follow You Home by Mark Edwards

Review: Follow You Home by Mark Edwards

Books, Reading, Reviews 0 ★★★½

This was… an interesting read. It’s actually kind of hard to classify (I like my classifications, dang it), because it starts out as a psychological horror story and halfway through morphs into something more like a crime thriller. The shift makes perfect sense in the context of the story, but… Read more »

Review: Chimera by Mira Grant

Review: Chimera by Mira Grant

Books, Reading, Reviews 0 ★★★½

Chimera is the final book in Mira Grant’s Parasitology trilogy, and it’s a solid finale to the story. It just didn’t grip me as much as the previous two books did. This review will be as spoiler-free as possible, but there will inevitably be some spoilers for the previous two… Read more »

Review: Brother by Ania Ahlborn

Review: Brother by Ania Ahlborn

Reviews 0

Ever get to the end of a book and think… the hell did I just read? That was me at the end of Brother. And not in a bad “the hell did I just read?” way, but more in a way that’s got me questioning whether this particular style of horror… Read more »

Review: Within These Walls by Ania Ahlborn

Review: Within These Walls by Ania Ahlborn

Books, Reading, Reviews 0 ★★★★

If you’re a fan of being thoroughly creeped out, you really can’t go wrong by picking up this book. The story of a struggling true-crime writer, his disintegrating marriage, and his contentious relationship with his young teenage daughter, Within These Walls is an effective, artfully written horror novel. Lucas Graham was… Read more »

Review: Symbiont by Mira Grant

Review: Symbiont by Mira Grant

Books, Reading, Reviews 1 ★★★½

Beware! This review will contain spoilers for Parasite, the first book in the Parasitology series! It’s kind of inevitable in a book 2 review, but unless you want to be spoiled, don’t read this review unless you’ve already read Parasite. Symbiont is a good read. It has a lot of… Read more »

Review: The Twelve by Justin Cronin

Review: The Twelve by Justin Cronin

Books, Reading, Reviews 3 ★★★

The Twelve isn’t quite as much of a grab-me-by-the-ears-and-force-me-to-read-it-in-one-sitting as The Passage was, but once I got past a bit of a slow start, I read most of the book quickly. And I liked it, I did.  I just didn’t like it as much as I liked The Passage. There will inevitably… Read more »

Review: The Passage by Justin Cronin

Review: The Passage by Justin Cronin

Books, Reading, Reviews 3 ★★★★

It’s been a while since I’ve plowed through a book in a day and a half (and frankly, it would’ve been a day if it hadn’t been nearly 800 pages), but I got completely sucked into The Passage by Justin Cronin. Heh. Get it? Sucked into a novel about a bizarre vampire… Read more »

Review: Parasite by Mira Grant

Review: Parasite by Mira Grant

Books, Reading, Reviews 3 ★★★★½

Finished reading the new Mira Grant book, Parasite, and… I’m currently a cross between my usual reaction to coming back to the real world after a Seanan McGuire/Mira Grant book: and this: because holy CRAP, it creeped me the hell out in the best possible way. If you guys follow me… Read more »
