I loved this book as a kid, and even credit some of these creepy short stories for my early fascination with horror (which probably shaped my imagination and influenced my own gruesome writes!)

For nostalgic purposes, I re-read this book as an adult. I expected to be disappointed, the way we so often are when we try to re-experienced something we loved from childhood, but Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark held its intrigue for me. I love it when that happens.

Gone Girl isn’t like anything I’ve ever read before – and that alone is almost worth the five-star rating I give it – but I loved this book for more than its originality. Most of the characters are despicable, it’s true, but they’re also believable and endlessly fascinating. This story doesn’t exactly have a happy ending, but that, too, is fine by me (I don’t particularly care for happily-ever-afters).

Gone Girl is gritty, uncomfortable, and violent, but it’s also smart, intriguing, and excellently written – and for me, this unlikely combination of beauty and brutality made it 100% unputdownable. Highly recommended to lovers of mystery and psychological thrillers.

After reading Audrey Rose, I decided I was probably going to be a pretty big fan of anything by Frank De Felitta – so I got a copy of THE ENTITY and promptly proved myself right. THE ENTITY is fascinating, chilling, and surprisingly unpredictable. I recommend it to lovers of classic horror and anyone looking for something familiar – but just a little bit different. An outstanding read.

This is one of the first Dean Koontz novels I ever read and went a long way in getting me hooked on his work. FALSE MEMORY is twisty and turny with good scares and plenty of unforgettable characters, but most of all, it’s got one of the most compelling and original plots I’ve come across. Highly recommended for its originality, atmosphere, and spook factor.

Brother Against Brother
Life in Crimson Cove has been good to the Colter Brothers since Gretchen VanTreese was staked and her horde of vampires scattered. Brooks is once again human, and Cade, the rare Sire Gretchen had determined to take as her mate, is in love. Then the unthinkable happens: Gretchen rises from the grave, and the brothers are torn apart, their lives – and the peace between them – shattered.

When Cade comes into possession of an ancient ceremonial dagger he awakens a power so deadly it defies comprehension. Meanwhile, a serial killer is stalking the little mountain town, leaving a trail of blood that leads to a truth Sheriff Ethan Hunter doesn’t want to face. And unknown to either of them, Gretchen is preparing to reopen her notorious nightclub, The Crimson Corset – and building an army to destroy her enemies and reclaim Cade Colter as her own. 

A New Breed of Evil
The streets are no longer safe, nor are the forested paths, for a new and unknowable evil has come to Crimson Cove and everyone – vampire and human alike – must come together in order to survive.

“Put Bram Stoker in a giant cocktail shaker, add a pinch of Laurell K. Hamilton, a shot of John Carpenter, and a healthy jigger of absinthe, and you’ll end up with Alistair Cross’s modern Gothic chiller, “The Crimson Corset” – a deliciously terrifying tale that will sink its teeth into you from page one.” – Jay Bonansinga, New York Times Bestselling author of THE WALKING DEAD: INVASION and LUCID

A thrilling mystery that will keep you reading as fast as you can, Pines by Blake Crouch is one of the most action-packed, intriguing books I’ve read in a very long time. I hadn’t seen the series or heard anything about the plot, so I didn’t know what I was in for when I picked this one up – but I’m glad I did. Pines is a twisty-turny crazy-exciting, thought-provoking novel that truly lives up to the term “page-turner.”

THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR may be Anne Rivers Siddons one and only scary stories, but it is far and above one of the best spooky tales ever told. I’ve read it twice already and know I’ll go back to it whenever I need a good, solid, creepy fix.

Highly recommended to lovers of gothics of all variety.
