30th September 2019 to 6th October 2019
The day I decide to start a blog, I log onto Twitter to start engaging with the community while I work out how to build a website. To my delight, I see a tweet from GoodReads highlighting Horror Week.
The horror genre is a go-to choice and some of my top twenty books (a rotating list to be fair) falls into this group. It was hard to choose but I went with tried and tested favourites which I hadn’t read in a while.
It was great having a browse down memory lane as I narrowed down the selection on the bookshelf to the following books:
- The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker
- Necroscope by Brian Lumley
- Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon
I was able to catch up with vampires, otherworldly beings, ghosts and the personification of evil.
I liked it so much that I wrote a book review for each.
It was a grueling week of back to back terror, fraught emotion and highs and lows. Naturally, as a fan of such things, I would do it again in a heartbeat. That said I’ve had my fill of spooky, scary and horror so Halloween will pass me by.
Roll on next year when hopefully I will be better prepared and not frantically writing reviews and reading, often simultaneously.
