My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix
My Best Friend's Exorcism - Grady Hendrix

Steeped in 80's nostalgia, I thought this book was a blast!

 

It was never really scary, and I'm not sure that it was meant to be. My instincts tell me this book was written as an homage to the 80's and the silly fun that the horror genre provided at that time. Sure, there were crazy Satanism scares, Geraldo and diet fads but there were also great music videos, Blockbuster stores and a horror book boom to beat all booms. A lot of them were just like this...about young people, influenced by culture and cliques, just trying to fit in. Carrie, Audrina, and all those kids from the covers of John Saul novels know what I'm talking about it.

 

If YOU know what I'm talking about and if you're smiling at those memories as I am, then I recommend this book. It was made for you!

 

*I bought MY BEST FRIEND'S EXORCISM with my own hard earned money. It's the enhanced version and it's a lot fun, especially those flies crawling on the cover!*

I have to run a couple errands including picking up the last Binti novella.  Yay.    So kinda wish I was getting through this faster, but my first priority is school reading right now.

The horror lovers essential reference book
Paperbacks from Hell: The Twisted History of '70s and '80s Horror Fiction - Grady Hendrix

A wonderful book that every horror lover should own. Paperbacks from Hell looks at the publishing of the horror paperback mainly concerned with the period mid 70's to mid 80's What is noticeable and striking about this book genre is the colourful covers and beautiful art work produced by famous illustrators at that time. Early examples of many of these horror books are now so scarce that they demand a very high price for the privilege of owning. This is a book that is made for rereading, an essential catalogue to be read once carefully, and then kept close at hand for use as a handy reference tool. Highly Recommended.

Watched Jeopardy, and read during the breaks. 

 

Going to take yet another break from this and continue on Special Libraries: I'd really like to get at least 50 pages of that done, and might take a brief break and read a couple more pages of this before I sleep if I hit fifty.
