Weekly Thread - Jul 13, 2023 - Books That Deserve the Hype

Welcome to this week's Weekly Thread! This time around, our topic is:

What Books Live Up to the Hype?

Whether you heard about it from BookTok, a trusted friend, or a Buzzfeed listicle, what book lived up to or even surpassed the hype surround it?

For me, it would have to be Between Two Fires by Christopher Buehlman. Reddit was crazy about this book, so I gave it a try and absolutely loved it. I now have a Medieval Horror itch that I keep trying to scratch.

What about you?

Scariest book you’ve read?
  • I just finished The Thing Between US by Gus Moreno. I've read a lot of horror and I've never jumped or turned my face away or slammed the book shut, but I did all of these things at different points in this book. Something about the way Gus Moreno describes things really freaked me out lol. It was a phenomenal book and I can't stop thinking about it.

  • Weekly Thread - What Are You Reading This Week?

    Welcome to the Inaugural Weekly Thread! I am hoping to get different types of weekly threads going on different days.

    Today's Topic: What Are You Reading This Week?

    Horror, horror-adjacent, books, short stories, fanfics, magazine, comics, whatever! I want to know what you're reading, or just finished reading. Thoughts, reviews, and analyses welcome!

    I just started the (very) short novella by Joe R. Lansdale, Shooting Star. People on a train have to deal with the aftermath of a collision with a flying saucer. It's pretty interesting, and my first taste of Lansdale.

    Now you!

    What is Everyone Reading?
  • I just finished reading Little Eve by Catriona Ward. This book has some real creepy vibes, and I'll never look at honey the same way! I really liked it, and it was my first book by Catriona Ward. I'm definitely a fan!

  • Welcome to HorrorLit!

    Hello everybody, I created this community a few days ago, as a big fan of r/horrorlit on reddit. And then my AC broke, and then a storm came through and killed power for my entire area, so I've been a little preoccupied.

    I apologize, as I do want to be active in this community and see it grow. If you know anybody who is a fan of horror books, tell them to stop on by! Suggestions, reviews, discussions, and anything else you can think of are allowed here, as long as it's about horror books/stories/etc., and you're not toxic.

    I've never been a mod for a community before, so bear with me as I learn. Also, if anybody wants to join as a mod, let me know, I'd appreciate the help!

    To start things off, I want to know your favorite subgenre of horror. Personally, cosmic/strange horror with a heavy dose of comedy is right up my alley.

    Thanks for reading my rambling, and I hope this community keeps growing!
