Halloween Season by Lucy A. Snyder is such a great read for October and especially for Halloween! I’m so glad I was able to pick this one up in time.
Let’s dive in!
My Thoughts on Halloween Season by Lucy A. Snyder
Each story was so much fun to read! I loved that there was a wide variety here that really showed off the authors range.
Here are my thoughts on each story-
Beggars’ Night – 4 Stars
Ooh what a powerful and spooky poem! I love the thought of everything changing for a just a moment.
Hazelnuts and Yummy Mummies – 5 Stars
I absolutely loved this one! Like A Christmas Carol, but Halloween-Ghost related and SO much better!
Cosmic Cola – 5 Stars
Woah, how creepy! I love tales about cults and how quickly this one punched the reader with intensity was nuts!
Visions of the Dream Witch – 5 Stars
Oh my gosh, give me a full book about these two cousins banding together on various adventures, or one all about the grandmother and her granddaughter! I loved these characters so much! What a spooky tale. I loved the scenes in the swamp as well. What a terrifying situation.
What Dwells Within – 4 Stars
The magic in this one was awesome! Being dumped into the short story, you kind of just had to roll with it without getting much information. But this didn’t hold the story back at all. The plot played out in a very suspenseful way and I couldn’t wait to see how everything turned out.
The Porcupine Boy – 5 Stars
Woah! Not that is definitely going above and beyond to support your clients. I did not see that coming. I loved this tale!
In The Family – 4 Stars
Jesus! Sibling rivalry is always a trip, but this one was wicked intense. And that ending!
The Kind Detective –
This one wasn’t for me.
A Preference for Silence – 3 Stars
Oofh! A short and sweet tale that certainly hits home for me! I totally understand being driven crazy by someone snoring! Ha!
Wake Up Naked Monkey You’re Going To Die – 2 Stars
Brutal, but I’m not quite sure what was happening here.
The Great VüDü Teen Linux Zombie Massacree- 4 Stars
Oh boy this one was fun and bizarre! I love any zombie related tale, but add in a technologically reanimated badger?! This one ruled!
The House That Couldn’t Clean Itself – 5 Stars
This tale was equal parts disgusting and hilarious! I want a house cleaning robot! But I’ll take one that wasn’t custom coded by a college bro please and thank you!
After Hours – 5 Stars
A wonderful poem and a warning that the next two tales are rated R!
They Toymaker’s Joy – 3 Stars
Oh my, I was not expecting that! This one made me giggle.
The Tingling Madness – 3 Stars
Whoa this one took quite a turn!
My Final Thoughts on Halloween Season
I highly recommend snagging this as soon as possible! It’s a great read for the season, but it will bring you Halloween cheer all year round!
Thanks for reading!
And happy Halloween!
