Horror Books

Hey you beautiful Rainbowland citizens,

I am not a horror movie fan, whats the reason you may ask? Gather round let me tell you of a couple of stories why this unicorn cannot watch horror movies.

  1. On my 11th birthday, i asked my dear brothers for a BARBIE doll and i was excited i would finally have an original barbie doll. so when my parents opened the box and i saw fucking CHUCKY in his bloody glory holding a knife, i screamed and then ran out of the room. Ah siblings, aren’t they just lovely?
  2. now this one was my fault. For some freaking reason when i was 14, i was alone in the house and i thought it would be a very good idea to watch not one but TWO horror movies, genius right (for someone who is scared of her own shadow). Oh and one of the movies was SILENT HILL you know the one with bodies stripped of their skin yep that one. Now power outage is common in my country (it’s called NEPA) and so it happened, there was no light and it was pitch black. I called my best friend and this muthafluffer hung up on me ( i was speaking gibberish to be fair tho). And then…..the gate opened and i was shitting my pants thinking the pyramid man was going to get me. It was just my uncle coming to give me the ice cream he promised…and then i left the light on in my room for a long time.

 

Now that we know i do not like horror movies let me recommend some lovely horror books ( i know right !! The irony)

  • As always on my list, they were my first horror book series and among the first set of books i got from Waterstones. The saga of Darren Shan its not to scary ( i say that because i think i imagined the bad guys as cashews..totally random i know)
  • Boy meets ghost, ghost is stabby what more for the perfect romance. Anna dressed in blood by Kendare Blake.

 

  • The next one is a comic on Tapas, Black pupil. A reporter gains the power to see otherworldly beings after a mysterious black liquid pops into her eye. I suggest not eating when reading this one.
  • And finally they say the apple does not fall far from the tree, and i say genetics fam muthafluffing genetics. Allow me to introduce to you Locke & key by Joe Hill son of the Stephen King. Yes, that means as you read this comic hold a cross near by it will do you good.

The review

HOLY  TOASTED UNICORN HORN !!!  is what you’ll say when you get to the end of this book. At the time of drafting this blog its 2 am and i’m sitting here contemplating the meaning of life because author-san has left me speechless again ( Click here for previous book). The Journey through this book was a freaking roller coaster of emotions be prepared when you read it.  Your heart would break and then just as its patching itself up again it just shatters into a million pieces ( but it sweet torture i promise). 

I loved the writing, everything flows perfectly, the author did not reveal too much of the characters background at the beginning and that made me just itchy to know more. When the background stories were revealed it was just at the right time when needed.  The story kept me on my toes i did not know when something would pop out and make me go what the fluff. And the music playlist Aggy was listening to was perfect, i found myself smiling when i saw lzzy Hale, Maria Brink (Goddess) and Taylor Momsen. I mean a character that rocks out like me..i love.

I am trying my best to make this post spoiler free, so i cannot get into too much detail on the characters but what i will say is the characters are well developed. When put into tough situations they delivered, sometimes shocking( hidden powers and such) and sometimes betrayal( there’s a wtf moment).

I can however say that Ji and Al-Miraj are my favorite, they love and support Aggy through everything. Oh Miraj is a talking rabbit whats not to love!!Marcus is a morally gray character and he has PTSD from saving his friends during war. There’s something twisted inside of him, i would love to see how this plays out in the next book. 

Final verdict

Yes i do recommend you to pick up this book, it’s a perfect read for Halloween ( and honestly just any day you feel like you need a badass heroine and dope friends). It has all the twists and turns to keep you guessing. You’ll laugh, cry and have a good scare.
