Reading: Welcome to the family.

Welcome To The FamilyWelcome To The Family by Christopher Bloodworth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s a fast and engaging read – I have to admit I had no effin clue what happened in the end, not sure if it’s just me that went ‘wait what?’ – Not that I don’t understand THE ending, but the sprint up to the end is very confusing imho. Apart from that, I absolutely swallowed it, and would absolutely recommend it to everyone who likes quirky horror.

Reading: The Doll

The DollThe Doll by J.C. Martin

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Not my cup of tea, and I found it incredibly boring and predictable – BUT i will give the author credit for trying to weave a story around a overused trope, and still manage to come up with a not as overused plot.

On the bright side, I should mention that this is a free kindle download, so if you have time to burn and is like REALLY into haunted doll stories, give it a go.

Reading: Unsolved Child Murders (18 American Cases)

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

there was a few really well composed casefiles, and they earned all the stars. sadly it is in general just incredibly uninteresting and repetitive.

I feel like I should add that it sounds like I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I claim that thorough retelling of cases is boring. Problem is the book rarely takes a different take than any other book, it doesn’t bring anything new to the table.

If i wanted to read an essay, I would have bought me a collection of essays.

Such a damn shame, because I really, really wanted to like this book.

There are some really, really good stories in this collection -I will absolutely keep an eye out for more by this author. It is by far one of the best collection of short stories by the same author I have read in a long time, I never got bored or felt the need to skip a story.
