Review: Burntcoat by Sarah Hall

Burntcoat wins the award for one of the most graphic novels I’ve read in 2022. And I don’t necessarily mean graphic in the gory sense. It’s a bit hard to describe – but anyone who has read Sarah Hall’s latest novel probably knows exactly what I’m talking about. Continue reading

Review: Sundial by Catriona Ward

If you love psychological horrors or Catriona Ward’s writing, please do not miss out on the experience that Sundial has to offer. Though I should warn readers that it is very much a dark read – one that I found to be borderline too much at times. So read with caution! Continue reading

I love this time of the year! It’s that time of the year when there are a million spooky novels (and novellas) readily available. This year, one of my first spooky reads is Lucky Girl, written by M. Rickert. Continue reading

Review: Seasonal Fears by Seanan McGuire

Seasonal Fears is the second novel in Seanan McGuire’s Alchemical Journeys series, and once again, I find myself transported to a world full of dangers and delights. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, I highly recommend you do so right away. McGuire has such a way with words. Seriously, I didn’t think it was possible to surpass Middlegame’s brilliance, and yet here we are. Continue reading

Review: Screams from the Dark Anthology

Screams from the Dark is a horror anthology consisting of twenty-nine terrifying and thrilling short stories. This is one of the better anthologies I’ve read this year, though perhaps I only feel this way because it is precisely what I’ve been craving. Either way, I was delighted to find this book in my mailbox. Continue reading

Review: The Hacienda by Isabel Cañas

If you love Mexican Gothic, then you’ll love The Hacienda by Isabel Cañas. At least that’s the marketing that sucked me in – and I am so happy for that fact. This is absolutely a book worth reading. Continue reading

Review: Manhunt by Gretchen Felker-Martin

Okay, there was no way that I was going to skip out on Manhunt, not after that pitch. I mean, a combination of Y: The Last Man and The Girl With All the Gifts? Yes, please! Written by Gretchen Felker-Martin, this book had big shoes to fill. Oh, did I mention that Manhunt is essentially a gender-based apocalypse story? Yeah. It’s going to get intense. Continue reading

Review: True Biz by Sara Novic

Once again, I find myself saying thank you to BOTM – without it, books like this would have missed my radar completely (there are just SO MANY books to watch out for!). True Biz, written by Sara Novic, is a young adult novel that portrays a world that most of us have never personally experienced. Continue reading

Review: Dead Silence by S.A. Barnes

There were a lot of reasons behind my desperation to read Dead Silence. The cover, the description, the nostalgia (anyone else getting serious Dead Space vibes from both the cover and description?), and even the implied atmosphere. As such, I went into S.A.Barnes’ Dead Space with really high expectations. Expectations that were not disappointed. Continue reading
