A brilliant debut novel from a talented indie author. This novel follows a lovely couple on their vacation to a family cabin in the woods. Someone or something wants in & will stop at nothing to get what it wants, even if that means following them wherever they go. Filled with horror and gruesome scenes this one will leave you with a phobia into the dark.

Desperation | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ http://suspensebookreviews.home.blog/2021/12/08/desperation-by-stephen-king/

Classic King tropes of people being trapped and good vs evil. This time a highway leads to Desperation, a small town haunted by an ancient evil. A group of strangers must work together to escape their death. Gruesome, detailed, and suspenseful. A bit heavy on the religion, God, and references in the second part for my liking, however.

KathyWheeler I reread this recently and discovered two things I‘d forgotten. 1: It starts off right away with action, and 2: how overtly religious it was. 7mo

A great twist to the classic haunting trope. A small town is cursed by an ancient witch whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. The witch can show up anywhere from the end of your bed to under the street light. Creepy, dark, and a fresh take on hauntings, HEX is a must-read for all horror lovers. A great addition to your Halloween Read Pile!

An easy light gothic tale about a woman, Hallie, who inherits her dead mother's Victorian home. Hallie living her life believing her mother died when she was 5 soon finds herself on a mysterious island, learning unbelievable truths about her family and past. Filled with ghosts, witches, and an eerie setting. Enjoyable, but not great.

I was a bit disappointed in this one. I loved the idea of Ropa being a ghost talker, I enjoyed the plot too. My problem laid with the fact Ropa is a teen and the narration is the first person, so it comes off extremely tweeny. I'm not a fan of YA and had no idea this was a YA novel (it was in the adult section at my library). I could not get into it.

This was a gracefully put-together novel, the writing was so elegant. The characters were portrayed with such realness that I felt as if I was with Frank and his brother Jake from page one. The relationship between the brothers was extremely realistic as well. The story fell flat for me though, never picking up. It's more of a coming-of-age story.

I went into this believing it was 100 scary ghost stories, when in fact this was 100 different ways someone can become a ghost; ghosts of our former selves; ghosts of our pasts. Some were funny, most were thought-provoking. All of them were just two pages long, however. Not bad a read, if you are looking for creepy this is not the book.

At it again with my second attempt reading this thick read. I am buddy reading it with a group of others in hopes that I can get through it. I have made it further than I did the first time around, reaching over 100 pages, yet I still find it to be rather difficult to get into. I would like to finish it as I keep hearing such raving reviews. Here's to attempt two.

LapReader Most disturbing book I have ever read. It took me a year as it kept making me feel sick. 13mo
AlisBookNookCorner @LapReader Would you mind my asking what made it so disturbing? Many refer to it as trauma porn, triggering, depressing, and that Jude's experiences are somewhat unbelievable as they are at times extreme. Some called it beautiful, heartfelt, and the best book they have ever read. My curiosity has gotten the best of me at this point which is why I am so determined to read it. Is it My Dark Vanessa or All The Ugly And Wonderful Things disturbing? 13mo
Cortg One of my favorite books! I love long, character driven books. There is a lot of mental health, depression, desperation and self harm throughout the book, but there are also friendships and love. Not an easy read. It‘s an emotional rollercoaster for sure. Definitely not for everyone. I haven‘t read either of the books you‘ve listed but they‘re on my TBR. ❤️ (edited) 13mo

AlisBookNookCorner @Cortg I enjoy them as well! I'm deeper into the second part now and I must say, it is getting much better. The first two chapters were a little rough to start, but I'm enjoying learning more about the characters as things unfold. I didn't care much for My Dark Vanessa, there were too many overly graphic sex scenes portraying pedophilia and rape. ATUAWT was a heartbreaker, but I LOVED it! So many emotions, yet so unbelievably good IMO. 13mo
LapReader I don‘t know much about the 2 books you mention. It is the self harm I couldn‘t stomach and as a teacher of emotionally disturbed children, I found it very real. 13mo
nishaagni I know so many people who find this book a second or third try victory. I felt that way about the Magus by John Fowles and absolutely HATED that book. Should've listened to my intuition which didn't want me to read it 😂 12mo

"Chaps always told Mother and me books were minds on the shelf."

On the fence about this one, the writing is rather formal and the story seems more about a young womans loss of her mother. Then how she moves to New York to start a life on her own. However, there are some really amazing quotes throughout.
