Horrorstor Review

Horrorstor was exactly what I needed after some the serious stuff I’ve read lately. The opening had me going “YAY! Zombies!” and then giggling as I realized what kind of zombies they were talking about. Everything in Horrorstor was well-described, with the perfect amount of detail, with a sort of “Silent Hill” vibe. It unfolded in my head almost like a movie, and that’s the best kind of book. Because it’s set up like a furniture catalogue, you get to see the Ikea like furniture become steadily more twisted. I loved the transitions, the characters, everything. I honestly can’t think of a single bad thing to say about this book!5 Star Rated Horrorstor Review

The pace was fast and awesome. It runs from page one and doesn’t slow down until the end is wrapping up. The characters are believable. Seriously, with almost each character I found myself having this moment of recognition and being like “Oh god, its (insert acquaintance’s name)!” It’s a horror comedy without ever actually being outright comedy at times. There were no annoying tropes or info dumps, so overall I can’t think of a single reason why you shouldn’t at least give it a try. I mean, even months after reading it, I’m still absolutely delighted by the book. I intend on picking up a copy for my shelves.

  1. Ooh I’ve been meaning to read this. This made me even more excited for it!

  2. I read and reviewed this last month. It was such a great read and I almost wish I had saved it for October, but I REALLY needed some comedic relief after a string of terrible books 😛
