I finally had the chance to read book two of Bedtime Tales of Horror. I so enjoyed it! I think it was a level up from the first. It’s almost as if the first book was an intro to horror and then in book two we get a good solid dose of blood, death, gore and all the things we expect from a great tale of terror. There were tons of spooks and scares, disgusting descriptions and gory goodies to keep you turning pages.
I loved each and every one of these stories.
We have a vengeful band of birds who impose their own form of justice on a pair of misguided boys. A beautiful date with a sweet guy goes very sideways. Then, there’s a scorned woman that develops a unique taste for revenge and murder. We read of a brokenhearted woman who is charmed and seduced by a unique man with unique interests. A group of friends go camping and have a refreshing experience involving an unusual spring in the woods. Then there’s a suspicious group of tenants that take up residence in a house and cause the landlord problems. A poor and hopeless couple turn to desperate measures when looking for a solution to a sleep issue. While vacationing in a cabin, a group of friends deals with a surprise guest. A caring co-worker attempts to help a friend with his ailments. Like a lot of people, we read about a lonely woman that turns to a dating website in search for love. A man attempts his own solutions to a pest problem and gets more than he bargained for. Finally, two female friends at odds over a guy put the past behind them while sharing their favorite beauty secrets.
I really feel like Poage stepped it up for this book. The tales were more intense and more graphic. The imagery was better. I got through this one a lot faster. It held my attention a lot easier which is saying something because the first book was a pretty easy read and held my attention well too. But, I just breezed right through this one. I can’t wait to get into book three. I hope it’s just as good as what I’ve read so far.
