I’m sure all of you have heard of Shirley Jackson. She wrote the book The Haunting of Hill House.
If you haven’t read it, I encourage you to do so. There are no monsters or gore, just freaky goodness.
Speaking if freaky, Shirley Jackson also wrote We Have Always Lived in the Castle. I recently listened to this in audiobook form using the Hoopla app. Oh my goodness such great writing. Such amazing writing of messed up characters.

Give it it a try.
This horror/thriller is in my pile:
Pizza Delivery by Robert Kent
From Robert Kent, author of All Together Now, comes a new tale of terror. College student Brock Clouser is working a summer job delivering pizzas. During a run to the outskirts of Harrington, Indiana, he wrecks his car at an isolated country home. Though most everyone there has been violently murdered, he’s not alone.
This is a novelette, not a full novel, and it’s mean and nasty and intended for a mature audience. It is absolutely not appropriate for younger readers. It’s a gruesome, repugnant tale featuring horrific acts of violence sure to warp young minds. Also, these particular characters speak in EXTREMELY COARSE language.
Yeah baby! Sounds awesome. 🙂
Do you find it odd that I enjoy chick lit and horror books? Ha ha

Serving Spirits by Adam Light
Novella, thriller, horror
I purchased this to read on my Kindle.
What a fun thriller. Novellas can be difficult to write, but this one shines. It was an ever-climbing, tension filled ride. Creepy, sinister, action packed. The background setting of the approaching hurricane was so well done.
My only complaint is the author’s overuse of the word ‘like.’ Like a baby, like bacon, like Medusa. It got almost comical toward the end.
But the overall story was fantastic. More please. 🙂
