Darkness and Bloodshed (Spooky Shorts Vol #1)Darkness and Bloodshed by Lennie Grace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A very super special shout out to Ms. Lennie Grace for the reviewer copy of this arc!

SO I am not one to just hand out five star reviews but this one got me giggling and shivering in my spine. Not exactly handing out if the book absolutely deserves it right? Well this one hit me right in the memories and had me loving every second of it. Even my mother took the book and read it within a few hours! without permission I may add and thought like I did about this short story novel. I asked her to come write a review (hopefully she does!)

The cover is so simple and easy to enjoy where the insides where like omg….

Each story starts off with a little tid bit of information – like in goosebumps or tales from the crypt. I grew up on these so i got hit right in the feels and probably feeling a little bias with this review because of that although I’m trying not to be! I myself enjoyed reading the little “into before each story” because it made me think of this crypt keeper or narrator talking before the episode unlike the twilight zone where it is at the end. Each of these stories were comparable to my childhoof favorites!

Blood Moon: OHKAY!! so this one was a little comical until it started to attack kids. I was sitting there like OMG! How dare they go after the kids..

All That Glitter: Woah! Talk about creepy and sending a shiver up my spine. I stayed up a little passed bedtime because I Needed something to calm me down after this read!

They Came From the Sky: a little predictable but I’m glad I read this during the day or I would of had trouble falling asleep again! Something like this could happen for real? To all the alian believers yes.. Yeah it could happen!

My favorite was all that glitters and I enjoyed how there was not a single happy ending. Way to go Grace!!

This author is defiantly a kept secret that needs to be read yesterday. This novel is wonderful for a quick read while waiting on the kids, In line to watch a movie or into a event, or simply enjoying a cup of coffee.
