“They are treating my spilled blood with chemicals because they think it will grow duplicates. It will not. Duplicates are sterile... Drones have no fear of laying eggs.”

The second book is not as good as the first but still pretty damn good.

I highly recommend these books for anyone who likes #weirdfiction

To me, Romie Futch is entirely unlikeable. And it is incredibly hard to get past a slow plot line when you don‘t even like the characters. If I didn‘t have to read this for a class I would have bailed on it because I have too many books to read in my life to wait on a book to get interesting. Plus, the ending wasn‘t even satisfying. I appreciate the writing style but hate the story itself.

So, I‘ve got a question for you readers. Who/what do you think the voice Eve/Ally and Margo hear is? It seems to have a supernatural element to it but also might be a representation of power infecting the mind. I think it‘s kind of supernatural because the voice mentions that it was around in the dark ages and as soon as Ally stands up to it it appears to Margo. I‘m really curious to hear what others think!

rretzler At first, I thought Allie was schizophrenic - that the voice had developed to help her deal with the trauma of her younger life. Until Margot heard the voice. Granted Margot had some trauma too, but nothing like Allie. But possibly it was enough in Margot‘s life to cause a mental break for her as well? Seems a little too coincidental, but that seems a better answer to me given the overall message of the book than the supernatural. 8mo
rretzler Great discussion question, BTW! 8mo
ImpliedNonsense @rretzler that‘s a great point! I thought the same thing at first too. 8mo

I‘ve been listening to this book on Libby for the past few days and I‘ve only got about an hour left. I mean the book is interesting and everything but I felt like it could have been pushed farther. It has a black mirror feeling but it doesn‘t disturb me enough- like it‘s ever so slightly in the twilight zone. The only other thing of complaint is that the narrators all sound like robots for some reason? I don‘t know (it might just be me).

”Women are the most important part of horror because, by and large, women are the ones the horror happens to. Women have to endure it, fight it, survive it—in the movies and in real life.” Loving this so far.

Horrorstor: A Novel | Grady Hendrix

Pickpick

Absolutely loved this read. It felt pretty short on the kindle, and it moved a little fast, but I wasn‘t mad at it. I liked the character development and also how unique they all were from each other. This is a really good read especially for the Halloween season!

ImpliedNonsense I also really liked how the main character and her boss DIDN‘T end up in a romantic relationship. I was really afraid they would just because of the weird hatred between them in the beginning. It felt like it was set up for an ‘accidental love‘ situation. (edited) 1y

I enjoyed this book overall but I felt like it was too slow in the beginning and then all of sudden it was over. Like there was no real apex of the story it just kinda... stopped. And then was done. The details of the possession earned a 10/10 on the GROSS scale.

This scared the shit out of me! I‘ve seen a few people complain that the witch didn‘t do anything so it wasn‘t scary, but for me that just added a layer to the overall theme of the book! Trigger warnings for suicide, domestic violence, and rape.

ImpliedNonsense The scene where Tyler is in the woods searching for his dog was the scariest part of the book for me. WAS IT FLETCHER? I do have to say that there were some really weird moments involving aggressive boob fondling and other boob stuff lol. To be honest all of the mentions of sexual things felt very out of place in the context of this narrative. (edited) 2y
