Reading: Creepypasta: The Comic

Creepypasta: The Comic by Vincent V. Cava

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


Why does this even exist? The art is horrible, and the stories are uninspired and dumb. I will however give props to the fact that whoever made this happen, was thinking outside the box, and tried to have that old ‘tales from the crypt’ feel to it.
Creepypastas are a great media to base comics on, so I really don’t know what happened. Or maybe I do, I mean – repeating myself, I know – this is a cashgrab, two semi popular people trying to bang a buck out of their audience. And dude, that is fine – just go into it knowing that it’s not good, or remotely creepy. it’s a circlejerk, a project to throw at the wall to see if it stuck – it didn’t.

But if you are a fan of either V. Cava or MrCreepypasta, by all means, knock yourself out, and add this to your fangirl library.

Reading: Unclean Spirits

Unclean Spirits by Bikram Mann

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I bought this because a youtuber recommended it – and while I have bought some incredibly shitty books on that basis, then in my kindle library it is bundled with some really good titles I read, so I decided to get it. And am I glad I did! never ever heard of the author before, but this is a quality collection of short horror stories, I can’t even recall there was a boring story in there – it was pretty consistent interesting.
So if you like me read a little too many nosleep stories, do yourself a favor and get this book.

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: 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! =)



Reading: There’s something terribly wrong with my son

There’s Something Terribly Wrong With My Son by Christopher Maxim

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I do like it – but honestly I’d say this belongs on nosleep, not as a book you’re charging money for. It’s clear that the beginning is written in a classic creepypasta style, and then halfways it twists and becomes a jumbled sci-fi novel. It loses ALL credibility and ergo also all the readers goodwill. I simply cannot understand the choice of taking the story in that direction. Honestly it would have worked if it had just ended like it seemed like it would (sort of at the halfway mark). It’s like when nosleep authors write a second part for a popular story on the site.. please don’t.


Reading: Sleepless nights (collection)

Sleepless Nights: 168 Thriller, Horror, Suspense, and Mystery Short Stories by Tobias Wade

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A super solid, LARGE collection of short stories. Of course there is bound to be some weaker stories in there, but I honestly don’t recall them and only the really good ones comes to mind. I would absolutely 100% recommend this, not only will you get quality horror shorts, but you get a LOT of horror shorts for your money.

Reading: Tales from the gas station (vol III)

Tales from the Gas Station: Volume Three by Jack Townsend

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Not as good as the first, but not as bad as the second – the third installment is a solid story, and I love the fact that we get to learn more about the authors mental state, and get to question our honestly very unreliable narrator. I am a fan!

Read my opinion of book I and book II

Reading: Tales from the gas station (vol II)

Tales from the Gas Station: Volume Two by Jack Townsend

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


While this in my opinion is the weakest of the 3 available books in the series, it is still very enjoyable for the same reasons as the first. I would absolutely recommend that you read this book series.
