I was not expecting to feel so seen in the first few sentences. Vibes for this Sunday night, for sure!

Super fun parody for the horror fan & kids aged 9 and up! My Halloween-obsessed 7 year old son enjoyed most of the wonderfully creepy illustrations, but one really scared him. So go with 9 plus. Great gift for a horror writer like me or any horror reader! #horror #parody #monsters #recommended

No Gods, No Monsters | Cadwell Turnbull

Pickpick

This book was delightfully weird, with really good writing and some truly terrifying moments. I love the way Turnbull juxtaposed monsters and myths with modern events (police brutality, protests, social issues). Alternating POVs with a lot of characters, so I had to pay close attention, but it all came together thrillingly in the end. Very much looking forward to the rest of this series.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

Audio narrated by Dion Graham, too.😍

Bookish.SAM Great review, I‘ve never heard of this book but I‘m intrigued 😊 1d

Grendel | John Gardner, Gardner
Mehso-so

Don't know what to think about this one. At times it was easy to connect with Grendel and to understand him or to pity him but sometimes i just couldn't really follow his weird actions and thoughts (or curses!?). The story didn't really start until a bit over the middle part and got more interesting to the end, maybe i feel like that cause Beowulf appears? (He is still just epic as heck!) It also helped that the story was quite short, i think...

I read this book and I did not realize it was by the author of Freshwater. I read Freshwater when it was first released and I wish I had read Pet first. While the books are not about the same characters it helped me understand Freshwater a bit better.

Just like with her previous book, Craig‘s writing is beautiful and the atmosphere she creates is delightful. While I liked the American gothic feel of the story, it wasn‘t creative or unique enough to really hook me. The “twist” was obvious from the beginning, and the ending was predictable.
