Reading: Bloodborne – the veil, torn asunder (#13 – 16)

Bloodborne #13 by Aleš Kot

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This reveiw is for issues 13 to 16 – the veil, torn asunder.

Can I just say I really wish this was never made?

I mean if you are into psychadelic timetravel, maybe this is it for you. Me, I had no clue what the hell happened in 90% of this story arc. I just couldn’t get into it. I mean it’s so bad that I sort of hope it was some strange form of cashgrab when you’re empty for ideas?

I so wished for this last arc to give me something of what the two first arcs had – exansion of lore, and the feeling of reading Bloodborne, having the time to look at all the dystopian beauty. But no, this is even worse than the arc that came before. It reminds me of some strange crossover standalone issue that someone made as a faneffort. And it’s such a crying shame, because the quality of the art and the storytelling is there – the actual story is just not.

I want my money back.

Reading: Bait

Bait by Amy Cross

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Really I tried. I usually love what this author makes, so I actually bought 2 of the books in the series without even thinking twice. Yeah… Who wants a kindlebook?

I don’t even recall why I found it so terribly boring – and that in it self tells me something about it, I mean I have no clue what it was about besides two crimminals discussing whatever, tiles I think? or maybe that was another book. *sigh

Seriously, this author is so good! this book is however not, and I am not even going to deal with the sequel unless the world ends and the world run out of other books to read. (well not true, cause there are worse books than this – by far!) I guess I am just super diappointed.

Reading: Kellie’s Diary #1

Kellie’s Diary #1 by Thomas Jenner

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

First I have to say that it has a great premise, and I love the fact that it’s available both as a sort of graphic novella (no pictures but it looks hand written on paper), and as a regular text kindle read.

But that is about the only nice thing I have to say. Because you #¤% me off! You know what I hate? I hate cliffhangers, and I hate obvious money grabs. This is the same reason I don’t play anything on, or give my credit information to my new uncle that emailed me from Nigeria

– And you did both. Not only did you end the book on the mother of all cliffhangers – which I could have forgiven you for, was it not for the fact that you have like 4 more books in the series that I am expected to pay for.

I was invested, the premise as I said, was solid. But there is no way in hell that I am paying for what is essensial a fanfic that would have done better on reddit.

My advise to you? revise it, and have 2 books instead and maybe then people wouldn’t feel like they just got involved in a ponzi.

Reading: There are horros here

There are horrors here. by Joshua McMahon

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Its been a while since i finished this book, and I don´t remember why i hated it so much – but maybe that is just it, that it was boring and generic, maybe really badly executed? I remember there was one good story in there, but I can’t remember it’s name.
When I look at the other reviews here, then I think the author needs to return to their roots and do some more creepypastas before making another book – because as I said there was this one good story, and so i’m sure they can do it with a little more honing of the craft.

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: 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: Hinsdale house an American haunting

Hinsdale House an America Haunting by Daniel Klaes

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I really wanted to like this book, and I bought this specifically because it sounded like it was the most well rounded book out there about this place. It seemed like it would be a good time reading it, proclaimed ghost hunters and a well documented haunting.
Alas, this book is a piece of shit, sorry not sorry. Not only is it formattet (i have the kindle version, not sure if it’s like that in the paper edition) so it’s actually a damn chore to read, long run on sentences where the words are together, sortoflikethis. And for some reason the word EMF is randomly stuck into to words like EMFotional.
And a personal thing for me was that the part told by Christopher Saint Booth, painted him like the biggest douchebag – I don’t know him, he might be a giant self important jerk, but it seemed super out of place and not nessesary in a book that is supposed to be about a haunting, not starstruck fans.
All in all I am super dissapointed, and the author really needs to send his work through an editor – even when it’s a cashgrab.

Reading: The butcher and other supernatural tales Vol2.

The Butcher and Other Supernatural Tales Vol. 2 by Brendon Faife

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Just don’t bother unless you know the author and want to help – but you’d probably do better by buying him a coffee on KO-FI, cause then you’d not have to read this book.

Reading: The reddening

The Reddening by Adam Nevill

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I read 50 pages and gave up. Dude if I wanted to read about people aimlessly wandering around running into weirdos with large heads – i’d read the Hobbit again.
I was so super dissappointed, and I do realise it’s folklore – but the author has written such awesome stories that I had not expeced to be bored to tears. Win some lose some, I suppose.

Don’t bother reading it if you aren’t into slow burn weirdness.
