Something strange is happening at the Orsk furniture superstore in Cleveland, Ohio. Every morning, employees arrive to find broken Kjerring bookshelves, shattered Glans water goblets, and smashed Liripip wardrobes. Sales are down, security cameras reveal nothing, and store managers are panicking.
To unravel the mystery, three employees volunteer to work a nine-hour dusk-till-dawn shift. In the dead of the night, they’ll patrol the empty showroom floor, investigate strange sights and sounds, and encounter horrors that defy the imagination. -Goodreads Synopsis
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 Horrorstör 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. I loved the transitions, the characters, everything. I honestly can’t think of a single bad thing to say about this book!
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)!” 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 Horrorstör a try.

Ooh I’ve been meaning to read this. This made me even more excited for it!
It really is a great read but let me know what you think.
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 😛
Yeah, it is definitely the perfect pick up book. I kind of wish I’d saved it for October, too.
i’ve been trying to decide between audible or kindle and this made the difference. thanks!
Happy to help!
