Reading: Bloodborne (#1 – 4)

Bloodborne #1 by Aleš Kot

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This reveiw goes for all the issues in this story arch (1 – 4)

I loved this story about the hunter and the paleblood child. It has loads of lore, but nothing so complicated that you can’t follow it if you played the game, and maybe didn’t endulge in deep lore videos and books.
it’s super well drawn, told and is engaging. I bought the entire series of comics (from 1 – 16) on the back of these first issues, I sort of wish I hadn’t but that is not a story for now.

I will however recommend these first 4 issues in this series, because they are absolutely awesome in every way. Even if you never played Bloodborne I am quite sure that you’d be able to follow the plot, but might not understand the ending.

I did not know this story arc going in – and it was awesome. Absolutely amazing. Thank you for making this!

I love that nothing feels shoehorned in, it reads as a natural organic flowing story. And also zombies, come on. I love eveything about this!

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:  Velkommen til mit mareridt

Velkommen til mit mareridt by Susanne Staun

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jeg har en personlig connection til denne fortælling og den rammer mig altid lige i hjertekuglen.
Jeg tror man måske skal relatere til dele af historien for at forstå hvor diabolsk det er og hvor traumatiserende det er at blive udsat for.

[I have a personal connection to this story, and it always hits me right in the core of my heart. I think you might have to be able to relate to parts of the story to understand why and how it is so diabolical and how traumatizing it is to be caught up in something like this. ]

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!

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: 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!

Reading: Return to the black farm

Return To The Black Farm by Elias Witherow

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read that mother in one sitting – it was that good. I even stopped reading “real” books, and resorted to short stories only – because most books just bore me half way. But not this! While not as good as the first one, it is absolutely an amazing sequel.
I did disconnect a little with the moral of the story, and the whole ‘i’m a better man for having a baby’ type deal – but all in all it didn’t take anything from the story, and also I do feel it was the logical route to go with this story anyways.

This is a sequel, my impression of the first book you can find here.
