Reader Question – The book about the handsome guy that tortures women in his soundproof basement…

March 7, 2019

Amanda needs our book help! GASP!!!!!!!! The first part of her question (a Beauty and the Beast aspect) had me immediately thinking of a few contemporary romances (like maybe from Katy Regnery)? But then she mentioned the super-dark aspect and…. eeeeeeeep!! I have not read this one, but I’m dying to know. She asks: This is [...]

Book Review – The Sleep Tight Motel by Lisa Unger

October 21, 2018

The Sleep Tight Motel (Dark Corners collection) So much story in such a quick read. Yes it’s short but it gave me goosebumps and… kind of warmed my heart, too! Weird right? But there was a good message here, in its own way. Nicole: I’ve listened to a couple of the others so far in the [...]

October 7, 2018

Oak Avenue (Dark Corners collection) Eeeeeep!! A little horror to titillate my lazy Sunday, and while it didn’t scare the wits out of me (I will sleep with the lights out tonight-darnit!! ), it did have a touch of creep factor to it, and the writing was good!! And well, we all know I’m a [...]

January 4, 2018

Sonia needs our help, but there’s a TON of detail in here, so proceed with caution. I’ll try and include spoiler-alerts if I see ‘em. Ohhhhh boy I just read her whole description and I TOTALLY get why she had to put it down for awhile. This one sounds like it could make your blood [...]

Book Review – Gwendy’s Button Box by Stephen King & Richard Chizmar

July 30, 2017

Gwendy’s Button Box It’s creepy. It’s magnificent. And for me, it’s an easy 5 stars for just having sucked me in right from the very start, and having never let me go. I didn’t put it down (at least… not by choice). Sure, it’s a shorter read, but I honestly felt like this story was [...]
