If you’re a horror fan, you’ve probably been seeing this book EVERYWHERE! Scott Thomas was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award for Debut Authors so everyone has their eye on this guy!
So obviously, I couldn’t ignore the hype and had to check it out.
Did this book live up to the hype? Let’s find out!
At the end of a dark prairie road, nearly forgotten in the Kansas countryside, lies the Finch House. For years it has perched empty, abandoned, and overgrown–but soon the door will be opened for the first time in many decades. But something waits, lurking in the shadows, anxious to meet its new guests.
When best-selling horror author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween night in one of the country’s most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he won’t be alone; joining him are three other masters of the macabre, writers who have helped shape modern horror. But what begins as a simple publicity stunt soon becomes a fight for survival–the entity they have awakened will follow them, torment them, threatening to make them part of the bloody legacy of Kill Creek.

So I’m a huge fan of Josh Malerman. I loved Bird Box! It was one of the most innovative and refreshing horror/suspense novels I had read in a long time. Then I read The House at the Bottom of the Lake. I rated it low, but I think the suspense in the book was top notch.
Then I came to Unbury Carol. I was SO excited to read Unbury Carol and had actually received an e-arc for the book but was unable to read it because it expired before I got to it.
So you can imagine my excitement when I saw that my library got a copy of Unbury Carol. I picked it up immediately and my friend Regina @ Bookish in Bed was excited too so we buddy read it. And….well….let’s talk about how I felt….
Carol Evers is a woman with a dark secret. She has died many times . . . but her many deaths are not final: They are comas, a waking slumber indistinguishable from death, each lasting days.
Only two people know of Carol’s eerie condition. One is her husband, Dwight, who married Carol for her fortune, and—when she lapses into another coma—plots to seize it by proclaiming her dead and quickly burying her . . . alive. The other is her lost love, the infamous outlaw James Moxie. When word of Carol’s dreadful fate reaches him, Moxie rides the Trail again to save his beloved from an early, unnatural grave.
And all the while, awake and aware, Carol fights to free herself from the crippling darkness that binds her—summoning her own fierce will to survive. As the players in this drama of life and death fight to decide her fate, Carol must in the end battle to save herself

EXCITING NEWS! PLEASE READ!
I’m finally back!
If you hadn’t noticed (which I don’t blame you) I’ve been gone since about February.
A few things happened around the same time that made me take a step back from blogging.
First, I had started back school, and got super busy! Second, because of school starting and getting busy, I wasn’t reading. I know plenty of people make time to read even when they are busy, but I was just too stressed to even enjoy myself while reading or writing blog posts. Third, I was honestly bored with my blog. I knew I needed a change and tried a couple times to revamp my blog but like I said I was too busy to even think straight.
So now it’s been 4 months with little reading and no blog.
I had honestly just surrendered to the fact that I may not love blogging anymore because my passion was just gone.
But then I had an idea…

I had a pretty great reading month, in October. Not only did I finish one of my favorite series, I started a new series, and participated in my first readathon.
