Review:

I received this copy for an honest review from the author.

Normally I wait till October to read horror/thriller, but I am a mood reader and my mood has been in a horror mood. This came at the perfect time. I am just getting over a horrible book slump that has lasted 3 months. (July has been the worst.) Coming out of this slump I have been in the mood for horror.

While I was reading Dracula, there were times I need a break from Stoker so I would pick this up and read about one or two stories.

“Don’t let him steal my child”, “Unborn Doll”, and “Virtual Terror” are right up my alley. I love stories like these. I did laugh at some of the titles because they weren’t what I would expect such as “I met the Devil on Tinder, and I swiped Right”.

One thing I didn’t like were some of the political marks. I know some people, okay a lot of people, don’t like our president but at least be respectful. After reading those remarks it put a bit of a bad taste in my mouth which I tried to get rid of to finish the book.  I don’t want to rate the whole book due to a couple remarks.

Some of the stories were weird. I didn’t get scared by any of the stories. Some were a bit bland. I did like the psychology that went along with a few stories such as the “Unborn Doll”. I love stories like that. A story that I wanted a little more background on would be “Breaking and Entering for Dummies” which left me with more questions than ever.

As of right now this hit a spot with me. What that spot is I don’t know but it helped me get out of my book funk along with a few other books.

Trying to Engage

Hey everyone,

I am writing to see how you are? Summer is about over and the time in the RV business starts to slow down. Good and bad for me. Good because I’ll have more energy to read. Bad because it will be slow. What’s coming up in the near future for you?

I’m going to be a little busy this month, but the good thing about it is I will make time for reading now that I am out of my reading slump.

I want to hear more about you. I have a few questions and I will list my answers underneath the question.

  1. What is your favorite genre?
    I don’t have one. I am what is called a mood reader.
  2. Who is your favorite character/s?
    My top two are Fred and George Weasley.
  3. What is your favorite book/s?
    My top two are Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling and Sweet Home by Tillie Cole.
  4. Final question. Do you listen to music while you read?
    I do. I have to have some background noise.

Hope you have an amazing August. For those returning to school, good luck
