Title: Splinters of You
Author: Anne Malcom
Words are my weapon.
Stories wrap around my soul, choking me, capturing you.
I don’t work in dreams.
I don’t offer escapes.
I cage you within my nightmares.
Magnolia Grace is a horror writer, despite what the name might suggest.
One of the best in the business, if you asked around.
Pressure comes with that title. Expectation for the next nightmare. The next bestseller.
That’s what it is.
She can’t be healthy. Because that means she won’t write.
And she hasn’t been writing.
A looming deadline and a crumbling psyche drive her into the woods. To a cabin which was the site of a grizzly murder.
A serial killer, butchering women, toying with her.
Her plan is to borrow some of the horror that seeped into the soil.
But hers follows her.
The woods are meant to be her escape. But they are almost her demise.
He was an unlikely saviour. An unexpected muse. He has horrors of his own. A motorcycle club looking to settle a score. A soul too broken to offer her anything but pain.
Author, Magnolia Grace has left New York for the middle of no where in Washington (it’s called Terror people, be warned!) to basically get her mojo back and maybe to run away. I’m still thinking about this whilst I mull it all over in my mind still!
‘I was here to save myself. With my laptop and my fucked-up imagination.’
Five reasons you should read this book:
The starts to every chapter. Chilling but strangley beautiful!
The god damned suspense, the trepidation, in this story killed me. I don’t read suspense or horror for that matter normally as I am a pussy but I swear I nearly wet myself a few times reading this! I was just so into it that I couldn’t look away!
This book is as dark as my soul!
The best friend, Katy. I love her ‘And she did save me. By being her insensitive, callous, self.’ Katy = my spirit animal.
Mags and Saint’s relationship. God they are perfectly imperfect for each other!
I need to go and calm myself down after devouring this in 1 sitting…..hopefully I can sleep without the details going over and over in my mind!
