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.


Reading: People missing in the woods

People Missing in the Woods by Steph Young

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


very disjointed, jumbled and feels unfinished somehow. Also I was crossing my fingers for no weird alien/UFO theories, didn’t work, and that was the nail in the coffin.
The cases are most of them slightly interesting, some are very intersting – but not enough of them to save this book.



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.



Reading: The peeling

The Peeling & Other Terrifying Tales by Iain Rob Wright

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


the first story is fine, its strange and obviously the author doesn’t quite know how to end it, but we’ve all been there many times – and I am actually quite okay with it as long as the rest of the story is engaging, which it is. The other tales however, is a different thing – This concept cannot carry a book, it could only carry a short story.
For those reading this, I will say that the other stories are in the same “universe” as the peeling. It’s been a little while since i actually read it, but i seem to recall there was one short story in there, which was not in the peeling universe, and that story was good.
