Hello, folks! Taking a cue from my fellow Book bloggers, I decided to share my TBR list. Some of the books have been pending for months. (Hide my head in shame.) But that’s the life of a book blogger – biting off more than she can chew.
Some of these books are requested from Netgalley and Edelweiss. However, the majority are review requests from authors and publishers.
Without much further ado, let’s delve into part 1 of my humongous pile:
The Subtlety of Terror: A Short Horror Read by Christie Stratos
Stratos pens an intense and scary tale in The Subtlety of Terror. It narrates the events that occur when the protagonist wants to sell her house.
Without giving away any spoiler, I will say only one thing: watch out for the house!
In a span of 1950 words, this short horror read packs a punch. Further, not a word goes waste. In such a short time, she narrates the backstory, the current predicament, and what the future has in store for the protagonist. Recommended.
Once happily married, the protagonist finds himself alone in his childhood home in The Wind by Edward Willett. Soon, the reader realizes why the house is closing in on him. The Wind is an excellent short horror story. It’s beautifully written, atmospheric, psychologically thrilling, and conjures vivid images of terror in a dark night. Willett deftly brings out the faults of his protagonist(s) in a brief span of ten pages. Highly recommended.
The author’s publicist provided me with free digital copy of these books upon request. I opted to provide an honest review on my blog. This does not affect my opinion of the books.
