Hallowreads: Slasher Girls & Monster Boys







This is a very balanced anthology of creepy stories. Let's start with the story of the curator of this anthology : April G Tucholke. She is an author that is new to me but after reading  The Flicker, The Fingers, The Beat , The Sigh,  I am a fan! This story is about four teenagers and an accident that puts them on a path of destruction. The narrator of the story enraptures the reader in his experiences and his terror. 

My next favorite story in this anthology was In The Forest Dark and Deep by Carrie Ryan. This story is a terrifying vision of the White Rabbit. A young girl visits the forests in her back yard and discovers a table laid out very much like the mad Hatter's tea party. Each visit to the forest brings more murders yet our heroine is unable to resist the lure of the forest.

Other talented writers like Marie Liu, Jonathan Maberry, Kendare Blake and Leigh Bardugo give us wonderful explorations down dark paths. 

A wonderful anthology for fan s of Horror and Suspense.

After reading Tucholke's short story in Slash Girls and Monster Boy, I IMMEDIATELY bought Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea! My favorite story in there was definitely Sleepless!
