Horror

14

I listen to a lot of audiobooks since I spend a lot of time in the car and 14 was a title I picked up recently. The author is Peter Clines, well known for his post-apocalyptic super hero series Ex-Heroes, and the narrator, Ray Porter, is top notch.

The Girl With All The Gifts


The Girl With All The Gifts by M. R. Carey is a beautiful and tragic drama, a poignantly asked question of what it means to be human. And it is chillingly scary. This is the book you can actually loan to that friend who never goes with you to horror movies because they're "dumb" or "shallow".

Bird Box

Revival

I’m a little late to the party, but have you guys picked up Stephen King’s book Revival? (Don’t drop it, you’ll break your foot.) If you haven’t already read this literary behemoth, then you’re definitely missing out.

The Deep

Up and coming horror author Nick Cutter’s up and coming new novel The Deep which only hit the shelves earlier this month just blew me away, folks. It’s a little over four hundred pages, but I found it to be an incredibly easy read- something I like to call a “popcorn” novel.
