Holy Moly The Colors
Through the Woods - Emily Carroll

I am reading this for "In The Dark, Dark Woods": Through the Woods by Emily Carroll.  

 

Besides the woods on the cover of the book two of the stories that I've read have the woods depicted in the panels.

 

This was brilliant. I loved all the stories, writing, and the panels were awesome. And I also scared myself so badly at one point I put this way and kept jumping at shadows. 

 

"An Introduction" sets the mood for this collection.  Why I started reading this in the dark with only the TV flickering I will never know.

 

"Our Neighbor's House" what a grim story. The slowly building tension to this one was great. Of course I had guesses about the neighbor.

 

"A Lady's Hands Are Cold" another take on the Bluebeard legend. Really enjoyed this. The song repeated throughout the panels became more and more sinister. 

 

"His Face All Red" I thought this was smartly done. We have a man who is wary of his brother, and we find out why. I kept waiting for something to leap out of the panel.

 

"My Friend Janna" a very good story. Reminded me a bit of the trouble the women had in that movie Ouija board. 

 

"The Nesting Place" a young woman doesn't take warnings to stay out of the woods seriously enough.

 

"In Conclusion" another take of Little Red Riding Hood.

 

The other stories in this collection besides "A Lady's Hands are Cold" and "In Conclusion" I am not sure of the original fairy tale or folk lore they came from.

 

I really enjoyed the writing, and the flow from story to story. I have to say the colors really popped and reading this on my Kindle was great because the way that the Kindle was set up was once you double tap the panel and enlarged it, you would get to see the full panel and then it would focus in on the different parts that you should read. So it was kind of like watching a cartoon, a silent cartoon which was giving me the willies the whole time. See below for some of the panels.

 

 

 

Definitely going to check out more works by this author!

I'm going to have to seek out more works by this author. The stories were so creepy and I loved the drawing and colors. I just wish it had been longer.

Through the Woods - Emily Carroll

I am reading this for "In The Dark, Dark Woods": Through the Woods by Emily Carroll.  

 

Well besides the woods on the cover of the book two of the stories that I've read have the woods depicted in the panels.

 

I started this last night is scared the living daylights out of myself. I had to stop and I had to put on something happy on my television.

 

I'm reading this right now my Kindle Fire and it's so good. The way it works is once you start a panel it just automatically keeps showing all the other panels as long as you flick your fingers. So it's like I'm watching a really disturbing cartoon. I love the stories. I love the colors. Everything is so good.

REVIEW BY AMY - Rain (A Stranger in the Woods #1) by India R. Adams
Rain (A Stranger in the Woods, #1) - India R. Adams
What if you knew you had just met the other part of your soul—the one who could take away all the pain and loneliness—but no one believes you because the rugged stranger from the woods is nowhere to be found? Would you search for him? Would you be strong enough to believe he exist somewhere out in the darkness where you he found you? And if you were to finally find the stranger from the woods and learn he is like no other tale that has ever been told… would you still have the courage to love him?
 
Rose has no time for romance because her father has passed away from an illness plaguing her small town, and now her mother has also contracted the illness, leaving Rose’s two younger siblings to be her responsibility. But when her best friend forces her to be young for a night and celebrate her twentieth birthday with a bonfire and friends, Rose meets a stranger from the woods, and Rose soon learns he is no stranger at all. In fact, this magical being is trying to keep her… alive.
 
Two bloods of one will bring down the shadows, to cast, no more...

REVIEW BY MERISSA - True of Blood (Witch Fairy #1) by Bonnie Lamer
True of Blood - Bonnie Lamer
This book was great. It starts with a girl's 17th birthday and the wotsit hits the fan. This book is action (of one sort or another) all the way through and the banter between Xandra and Kallen is simply brilliant. Xandra reacts to the situation in a way that is completely understandable and is often humorous.

Great start to a new series. Recommended.
