HEX by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

Hex Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For my last spooky season book of the year, HEX by Thomas Olde Heuvelt from @tornightfire offered up all the child and scares that I was hoping for. Holy crap, this book was intense, and did not hold back or shy away from going where I did not think it was going to go. Hands down, my favorite book this spooky season. Will absolutely be picking by Heuvelt’s Echo when it is released next year.

The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward

The Last House on Needless Street The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

THE LAST HOUSE ON NEEDLESS STREET by Catriona Ward from @tornightfire is a deeply unsettling work of psychological horror and I couldn’t put it down. Read it in 2 sittings. I felt I had a pretty good idea where the story was going, but Ward pulls the carpet out from under the reader’s feet about a dozen times by the end of the book. So, while I was partially right, the story went so much deeper than I was expecting. An excellent reading experience. I’ll definitely be looking for more of Ward’s books.

Basketful of Heads by Joe Hill & Leomacs

Basketful of Heads Basketful of Heads by Joe Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Spooky season continues with BASKETFUL OF HEADS by @joe_hill & @leomacs from @dccomics & Hill House Comics. Another, great story from Hill with his usual weird sense of humor: June Branch is visiting her boyfriend Liam on the small Maine island where he’s working for the summer when she gets entangled in a messy showdown between the local police force and some escaped convicts from a prison Stephen King fans will recognize. To protect herself and save Liam, June grabs the first weapon she can, a magical axe that severs heads, but keeps them talking. How many heads will it take for June to piece together the puzzle? A basketful should do. It’s goofy and bloody and exactly what I’ve come to expect from Joe Hill. I’m looking forward to the upcoming follow up series, REFRIGERATOR FULL OF HEADS.
