TWO MINDS: 50 SHADES OF FUCKED UP - An Extreme Horror Novel by MATT SHAW & SAM WEST
Two Minds: An Extreme Horror Novel - Matt Shaw,Sam West

These two authors are a match made in… well, Heaven for me!

I’ve been a fan of Matt’s for a very long time. When I stumbled across Sam’s work not very long after, the two people who introduced me to Matt said I’d enjoy Sam’s writing as well – (thank you Suzanne and Cathy!) – and they were right.
IMO, Sam West’s stories have been getting increasingly better this year, and this collaboration came at the perfect time for both of them.

Two Minds is told through the viewpoint of the two characters living the story.

The Woman – convinced the man she is talking to is responsible for her sister’s disappearance – and The Man… Who is he? Did he have anything to do with the sudden disappearance of Samantha’s sister or is he nothing more than an innocent bystander?

Only one thing is for sure… After this night, neither of them will be the same again.

I wish the ending were a little… ‘beefier’ (for lack of a better term, or perfect tongue in cheek?).  I just felt like I needed a bit more there, but that’s only one readers opinion.  I love how it was written. It’s a great style, and I bet we’ll see more authors experimenting with it. This story, (plus the little preview I had), has got me even more excited for The Devil’s Guests!! Have you been looking for something a bit more twisted than usual? The Devil’s Guests is gonna do things to you that no book has done before – trust!

 

Peace, Love & Necrophilia ♥

Heart of the Sea: An Others Bonus Story - Christine Warren
Heart of the Sea

The Characters

Jenny Ferguson, Richard Maccus

The Story

This story is super short and very sweet. We do not really learn anything about the characters. I haven’t read this series yet but I assume this is just a little peek into the life of Jenny and Richard. It takes place right before their wedding.

Books I Read in December
My Notorious Life - Kate Manning
The Wish: A Holiday Story - Francis Ray
Pale - Chris Wooding
Double Crossed: A Spies and Thieves Story - Ally Carter
A Night of Forever, A Novella (The Night Series) - Lori Brighton
Ruined by a Rake - Erin Knightley
Gentleman of Her Dreams - Jen Turano
A Kiss for Midwinter - Courtney Milan

I read a total of 11 books in December. 

 

I enjoyed reading the eight shown but there were three that were huge disappointments. 

 

Those were; 

1). The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

***A very anticipated read that just didn't work for me. I was lost and didn't get the point.

 

2). Lengendary: Inside the House Ballroom Scene by Gerald H. Gaskin

***I was given a egalley of this book by the publisher. The pictures didn't show well and I wanted and was expecting more detail and inside look.

 

3). Devil in the Making by Victoria Vane

***I suppose the issues I had with this novella could stem from it being a prequel and for me it didn't have a wrap up or make much sense.

Turned at Dark (Review)
Turned at Dark - C C Hunter

As this is not a full-length novel, I will only be writing a “mini” review, in which I will forego my usual “What I Liked/Didn’t Like” sections.

 

Meh. This novella kind of fell flat for me. I’m not a huge fan of the writing style, and I don’t like any of the characters. Della seemed rather cookie cutter and generic to me, while her cousin was also nothing special. I didn’t really understand why Della turned into a vampire—her cousin touched her blood or something?—but maybe that will be explained more in the next book. Reading this doesn’t make me want to read Born at Midnight at all—in fact, I think it might have turned me off of it a bit more. It wasn’t horrendous and it was at least polished, but just not really worth the time.
