Worship Me - Craig Stewart

While the premise is cool (if Stephen King's Mist took place in a church) I don't care about any of the characters and the pace is moving faaaarrr to slow to my liking.

The Cabin at the End of the World - Paul Tremblay

This was fantastic! It was beautifully written and it had me on the edge of my chair.

Meddling Kids: A Novel - Edgar Cantero

Jinkies! I didn't enjoy this one.

 

I felt like the characters weren't fleshed out well enough. I simply just didn't care about them or what happened to them which made it a bit boring.

 

The writing style made it incredibly distracting to read. It kept switching from the regular writing style to a script format. At times the author was channeling his inner Shakespeare and made up words. It was also chock-full of weird similes.

 

The book itself was a great idea, just poorly executed. Props to the title and beautiful cover!

Meddling Kids: A Novel - Edgar Cantero

Like, zoinks Scoob, there's too many characters being introduced at once, I can't tell who's who.

Daisy Jones & The Six - Taylor Jenkins Reid

This reminded me of a serious version of "This is Spinal Tap" with a lot of Fleetwood Mac sprinkled in.

 

While I enjoyed the fact that it was an epistolary novel because I don't see this writing style done very often, it was hard to connect to the characters due to the format. It also made it incredibly boring at times because it was mostly "tell" and not "show".  And because it was an interview style I did not get a '70s vibe from the book, other than the fact that everyone was wearing bangles and denim.

 

Overall, Daisy Jones and the Six didn't amp it up to 11 for me, which is disappointing since I am such a fan of classic rock.

Cain's Blood - Geoffrey Girard

I'm on the fence with this book, it was one of those reads where you want to look away but can't. It was dark, interesting, weird and incredibly graphic at times.

 

If you're into true crime you'll probably like this one.

Hello There!

 

Hi!

 

I'm Julia and I am a horror fan from Canada. My nickname is Wednesday because I am told I wear black a lot, like Wednesday Addams.

 

I love reading all sorts of genres and aside from horror my most read genres are historical fiction, mystery, thrillers, fantasy and contemporary.

 

In my spare time when I am not reading I love to cross stitch, collect vinyl and listen to classic rock (mostly the Ramones).

 

I'm new to the whole BookLikes book blogging so please bear with me!
