Reading: 53 sleepless nights

53 Sleepless Nights: 50+ Monsters, Murders, Demons, and Ghosts. Short Horror Stories and Legends. by Tobias Wade

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This might be unfair, because if you have not read much from this author – I’m sure this is a awesome collection of stories. But I personally felt a little ripped off, cause I read most of these stories elsewhere before. What I had not read before was decent, but I know this author can do better.



Reading: From the Depths

From the Depths: Terrifying Tales by Richard Saxon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I absolutley loved this book – and I highly reccomend it! There are some creepy gems hidden in here! You might know some from around the internet (creepypasta stories and narrated videos). But no matter how much of a creepypasta fan you are, I am dead sure you’ll find a great story or two in this book you didn’t know, and will enjoy!



Reading: Asylum Archives – Case study Vol. II

Asylum Archives Case Study Vol. 2: True accounts from the insane by Jaron Briggs

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


Don’t bother – This book one long incredibly lame cringe-fest.

I could say somthing about how absolutely loosely the author use the term ‘insane’, and I could say something about how offensive that actually comes off. I won’t – I will however say that the first story is semi decent, and when reading that you could be tricked into thinking there might be a theme… IT’S A TRAP!





Reading: Cruel works of nature

Cruel Works of Nature: 11 Illustrated Horror Novellas by Gemma Amor

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Firstly I think it’s a bit of a stretch to call it “illustrated” because there is a pen drawing before every chapter, I don’t know about you – but I imagined something different.
Anyways, that aside I really enjoyed this book, This author wrote some really awesome stuff, and some that didn’t interest me in the least – But this falls into the first category! I really, really liked it, and there were only one story that had me skimming pages (that is really well done, my attention is super bad if something doesn’t catch me right away).

I would absolutely recommend this book if you need some non committing light summer reading, it’s well worth your time and the asking price! =)



A Cure for Chaos: Horrors From Hospitals and Psych Wards by Tobias Wade

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is one of these books I got for free, and it’s so long ago that I don’t even recall if it was free on Amazon, or if it was a gift from someone.
Anyways I got around to reading it, and dude – why has this been waiting for so long in my library? I think it’s a combination of the title and the cover, it just looks real bad – as in REAL bad.
But whaddaya know, it isn’t! it is actually a really, really nice collection of horror shorts, and the good stories in there absolutely outweigh the bad. Also it has a load of stories and you absolutely get something for your money. I say, free or not – get it! While not all the stories are about hospitals or mental asylums (I seem to remember there were a couple where I wondered why he’d put them in there), they are almost all strong stories which are definitly worth a read.

I did not change my mind abt the cover, it is super lame – but for once I got caught by the cliche (you know the one about books and their covers).


Reading: Welcome to Heaven’s peak

Heaven’s Peak by Miguel Estrada

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


Not even sure where to start – just don’t – unless you have been doing meth for a week, really needs to sleep but can’t afford the street price of downers. Then – and only then, pick this up.



Seriously if I could give it minus 5 stars I would have.

Reading: The Killing Floor (infection 2)

The Killing Floor by Craig DiLouie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I have to admit that I like the 1st better, but maybe it’s because I think all the interesting characters snuffs it in the first book – leaving only uninteresting and/or stereotypical characters. Sarge is about the only saving grace.
The driving story is also not as interesting as the first.
BUT with that said, it’s still the sequel to one of my all time favorite books, and I love it – it starts out super strong, and takes a nosedive, the end is lame (sorry man, but it is). I still absolutely recommend this book if you’re into apocalypse stories with kind of zombies- kind of aliens?!



Reading: The Infection

The Infection by Craig DiLouie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Now this is a re-read, I bought this when it came out and own it in paperback. Years later I decided to get this and the sequel as kindle books too, because I admit I read more on my kindle these days, and I absolutely loved these books.
While I think I was easier to impress back when I read this first time. But I still think the virus holds, and the apocalypse holds. Some of the characters not so much, and I have a hard time telling some of them apart – But I will still say that it’s one of the best zombie apocalypse books I know (even if it’s not technically zombies).
But read it! seriously if you like apocalypse fiction, you’re missing out if you haven’t read this book!
