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.


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!

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: 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.

Reading: Don’t scream 3

Don’t Scream 3: 30 More Tales to Terrify by Blair Daniels

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I think the third installment in this series is just as strong as the second, but not as good as the first. Really there is nothing much to say about it besides it being a strong collection of short horror stories, and in that aspect very run of the mill. However the author has a knack for writing some super disturbing psychological stuff, and that is absolutely my jam.
This is not for everyone, but I absolutely love the series.

Reading: Tales from the gas station (vol I)

Tales from the Gas Station: Volume One by Jack Townsend

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Best thing I read all year. It’s easy to read, easy to follow – funny and enjoyable, it has just enough bizarre mystery and hints of contemporary horror to keep someone like me interested.
So if you are going to read 1 book this year, let it be this one.

PS: I swear this review is not seen in the light of all the shit books I have been wasting my precious time with lately.

You can read the original blog here https://www.gasstationjack.com/ and you can listen to this book as an audio book, narrated by the talented MrCreepyPasta

Reading: The Discarded

The Discarded by P.F. McGrail

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


I have a feeling that I forgot to read what it said with tiny letters or something – it was NOTHING like what I expected, and I managed to read 3 chapters before I just gave up. Life is too short.
I wanted to like this so bad!
might be your thing if you like supernatural gangster stories.
