Grady Hendrix hit the nail on the head with this campy 80’s inspired horror novel! My favorite part about Hendrix’ writing is his ability to blend the perfect amount of nostalgia, humor, gore, and terror without sacrificing any effectiveness. This reigns especially true in My Best Friend’s Exorcism- it is at once tropey yet genuine, and hilarious yet gruesome. A classic and self-aware exorcism story with a dash of social criticism and even a sprinkle of touching moments about the power of friendship. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup

My personal favorite King novel, Pet Semetary will psychologically grip you and won’t let go until long after the last page. Only King could portray this level of horror with minimal bloodshed and gore, capturing the essence of grief and loss in such a brutal way that will haunt even the most seasoned horror readers. ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup

Every broken world, no matter how damaged it is, can be fixed, and the only price to pay is a human sacrifice... In this mind bending horror story that effortlessly explores the concept of interdimensional traveling, demons, and dark magic, "The Book of Accidents" places a tight knit family in the center of it all, testing how resilient the bonds of unconditional love is against the encroaching, twisted shadow of pain and evil that is being forcibly thrust upon them.
A worthy, terrifying read; I am forever a fan of Chuck Wendig! ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

Alice is an aspiring documentary filmmaker who takes a small team to the abandoned town of Silvertjärn to uncover its secrets of how an entire village disappeared without a trace. Soon though, things start to go wrong, and as her team begins disappearing one by one, she realizes the town isn’t as abandoned as she originally thought.
Intense and exceptionally creepy, Sten does a wonderful job combining fear and curiosity into a page-turning descent into madness. This has some serious Blair Witch Project and the Lost Colony of Roanoke vibes. A must read! ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon
