Aloha my fellow book blogger pals! I’m here again with another (kinda late) October book review, and I’m really excited about this one as it was one of my favourites that I read!
Horror Stories by various authors.
Overall rating 4 out of 5 stars.
Going For A Walk by Ron Ripley. This one started us off with a bang, I literally had no idea what was going to happen in this one and it ended up being something completely different to what I expected, which I loved. The ending was brilliant. This was just an all around good story.
The Doctors Questions by Eric Whittle. Another one that I absolutely loved, it was so fast paced that whilst I feel like we didn’t stop but in a good way. The only criticism I have is that the ending was very ambiguous which frustrated me.
Urbex by David Longhorn. Urbex was somewhat of a disappointment for me, I figured out what the story within the first few sentences. That being said, it was very well written and cleverly done.
Museum Quality by Ron Ripley. This one actually made me feel physically sick. I was going to skip it to begin with but I’m so glad I stuck with it, it cleverly built up a story that got just under my skin and not in a good way…
Tell Me Your Name by A I Nasser. I really enjoyed this one even though it didn’t have the same scare factor as the others it was incredibly well written and still managed to make me feel unnerved.
His Neighbours Garden by Ron Ripley. Omg I adored this one! Even though I figured out a little bit of what was going on nothing could prepare me for the ending, it shocked me to my core. I think this one was my favourite story from the collection.
The Sin Eater by David Longhorn. This one was a close second to be my favourite. The story itself was original, well written and I loved how it let us make our own assumptions at the end…
Kimberley by Sara Clancy. I had goosebumps from start to finish whilst I read this story. Every line I read I got more and more on edge and creeped out. The atmosphere that was built up was brilliant, I cannot fault this story.
Scarecrow by A I Nasser. Again, I enjoyed this one it had a sort of mature rated goosebumps feel to it which I really liked. It kept my attention throughout and I definitely didn’t want it to end!
Graveyard Shift. I’m quite disappointed with this one, I figured out the story from the beginning and it felt really rushed compared to the other stories which is super annoying because it didn’t have the same feel and atmosphere as the rest of them.
On the whole, I really loved these stories! They all brought something different but managed to maintain the same quality pretty much right the way through with an exception or two.
Let me know if you’ve read this book as I would love to know what you thought about it!
