I actually liked it so much that i bought another book by the same author. Now to be fair I got this book (mirror mirror) for free, so i thought it was only fair to get another of his books because I liked his style.

Reading: The black farm

The Black FarmThe Black Farm by Elias Witherow

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

To be honest my first thought was ‘omg it’s a rewrite of feed the pig’ which admittedly was one of my favorite short stories from ‘the worst kind of monsters’, but I was a little annoyed that I had been so psyched to see something new from the author, and then it was just an old story in new clothes. But I was wrong, or well at least to some extend, because even if it is actually a rewrite of feed the pig, it is more like a reimagining, and black farm is so much more than the original short story to a point where it’s not really fair to compare the two.
Even if you read feed the pig, this story brings more to the table, read it! you won’t be sorry.

Reading: Silent Child

Silent ChildSilent Child by Sarah A. Denzil

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I honestly didn’t think much of this, and quite honestly I bought it on a whim to use a gift card – but how wrong I was! It was actually really, really good! It managed to catch me from the beginning to the end, and it was really hard to put down because I wanted to know what was gonna happen next! It is absolutely recommended, and I think I will keep an eye out for the author’s releases in the future.

This is not a horror book, more like a whodunnit story, but it is absolutely creepy and unsettling.

Reading: Before you sleep

Before You Sleep: Three HorrorsBefore You Sleep: Three Horrors by Adam Nevill

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I actually liked the two first stories, they seem to cut off in a weird manner, not sure if the author just don’t know how to finish them or whatever the reason could be, then I would love to read an actual genuinely worked through version of the first story. The last story was just super uninspired and a tired trope, but I would recommend it anyways in case you like me are on vacation and need something super light to read.
