If you've asked for a horror recommendation while I'm in the store, you've been handed this book. One of my favorites of all time, this is a psychological horror that is great for mystery readers who love trying to guess the ending. There are so many twists and turns that there's no way you'll be able to see all of it coming. Told from several different perspectives, each chapter ends on a cliffhanger, convincing you to read just a few more chapters just so you can see what happens next to each character. So many threads weave this story together, but they are all satisfyingly tied in a neat little bow by the end. You will be eager to talk to others about this book when you finish it because it is just that type of story, so find me when you do!
I read this in one sitting because I just couldn't put it down! A cozy, sapphic dream that swiftly melts into a nightmare.
This lush Dracula retelling convinced me that revenge isn't best when sweet, but bitter and tinged with copper instead,
Have you ever wanted a sapphic historical romance (à la Bridgerton) told from the perspective of a persnickety hobgoblin? Well, if you didn't before, I'm sure you do now.
Before this book, I didn't know it was possible for a post-apocalyptic horror to bring me to happy tears. These characters felt so real; I connected with Chelsea and her story so strongly that I was rooting for her with my whole heart.
Of course you support women's rights, but what about women's wrongs? Delicious and deranged, this is a story of a cannibalistic food critic that's perfect for fans of unhinged women.
When this book claimed to be like a female Patrick Bateman of American Psycho, I had my doubts but it did NOT disappoint. I loved hearing this woman's... shall we say, unique outlook on life. Creative gore makes this not for the faint of heart; there's one scene in particular that I felt and can't stop thinking about.
Have you ever heard of McKamey Manor? You know how things are just begging to go wrong at a full-contact haunted house like that? This literary thriller explores just that idea. The characters and their motivations are so rich and intricately thought out; I could write an essay about this book and enjoy my time doing it.
In Chuck Tingle's horror debut, he examines conversion therapy and religious trauma, making this THE queer horror book. Funny at times as well as disgusting at others, Tingle does not disappoint.
Nat Cassidy is quickly becoming one of my favorite horror authors, and he's only written two books so far. In Nestlings, he tackles post-partum depression, disability, and antisemitism in such a delicate way while never pulling any punches when it comes to the horror. Creepy and crawling, this book had some straight up unnerving points and didn't do me any favors for my fear of looking out windows at night.
A post-menopausal "Charmed," complete with a trio of crime-solving witches. Harriett is my hero.
Aren't you tired of being nice? Don't you just want to transform into a dragon, devouring all the men who made you feel small? If yes, this is a fiercely feminist alternative history for you.
