I am also attaching the links in this post to the titles I included on my Horror Novellas for Libraries column in this month's Library Journal because those titles only appeared on the horror blog, and like I said above, I want to make sure all the books I have read are accessible via a title search on this blog for me as much as for you. Plus, now they have been assigned "three words."
See below for the authors and titles as well as my three words. Use the links [click on titles] to read the full review on Goodreads.
And Happy Thanksgiving. I should have one more quick Goodreads update before the end of the year.
- Wanderers by Chuck Wendig [epic, intense, character centered ]
- The Lady from the Black Lagoon: Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Millicent Patrick by Mallory O'Meara [biography/memoir mashup, lost history, impassioned]
- The Memory Police by Yoko Ozawa [Orwell updated, character centered, thought provoking]
- The Luminous Dead by Caitlin Starling [claustrophobic, compelling, flawed characters]
- Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton [animal narration, sardonic, engaging]
- A Cosmology of Monsters by Shaun Hamill [coming of age, extremely menacing, Lovecraftian]
- Look Both Ways by Jason Reynolds [engaging, large cast of characters, relatable]
- Tinfoil Butterfly by Rachel Eve Moulton [disturbing, character centered, beautiful writing about evil]
From the Novellas Column [minus One for the Road which was reviewed on the blog previously], but I have added my three words for each book here on the blog
- Ormeshadow by Priya Sharma [mythical, menacing sense of place, coming of age]
- Snow Over Utopia by Rudolfo Serna [harrowing, character centered, disorienting]
- Husk by Rachel Autumn Deering [unreliable narrator, thought provoking, trauma]
- A Lush and Seething Hell by John Hornor Jacobs [cosmic, disorienting, thought provoking]
