Creature by Hunter Shea Review

My second five star read in a row! Is this really happening?! haha


Creature by Hunter Shea
Horror Fiction
Released September 2018
Goodreads | Better World Books

The monsters live inside of Kate Woodson. Chronic pain and a host of autoimmune diseases have robbed her of a normal, happy life. Her husband Andrew’s surprise of their dream Maine lake cottage for the summer is the gift of a lifetime. It’s beautiful, remote, idyllic, a place to heal.

But they are not alone. Something is in the woods, screeching in the darkness, banging on the house, leaving animals for dead.

Just like her body, Kate’s cottage becomes her prison. She and Andrew must fight to survive the creature that lurks in the dead of night.

These Are My Thoughts:

CREATURE surprised me. I’ve only read one Hunter Shea book, THE JERSEY DEVIL, and that thing was pure madness from beginning to end with its out of control body count and frenetic pace. I was expecting a crazed people eating monster to pop out of the woods and eat everyon…

How long can you protect your heart?

For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life - until the unthinkable happens. 

Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heart…

New Purchases

I was pretty good about not blowing the budget this month (as much as it kills me) but I did purchase the Night Wormspackage and I'm so glad. Look at all of this Christmas horror goodness!



Oops, maybe I did blow the budget after all. I forgot I splurged on the Twitterstone box too . . .  and it was pretty excellent. 

And I just want to say that I am so very happy that these two good things arose from the flames left behind by the mess made by Nocturnal Reader's Box!
So, what are yo…
