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.
