Yup it’s unboxing time again! This month the Nocturnal Readers Box theme was Trapped, but not just in the physical sense! And they did a phenomenal job with it! Stayed tuned to check out just what this box had instore for us this month!Nocturnal Readers Box April 2017
Trapped: Being trapped is not just about being physically captive, but also emotionally and mentally trapped. Both books are about doing what is necessary to save the ones you love. (This made me so happy that they really thought outside the box of being physically restrained!)
So I was lucky enough to get the Cujo signed picture by Dee Wallace! This movie was really great, sadly to say I have not read the book yet but now I have to!
It says “Bite me” which is strangely one of my catch phrases… ^_^
This lovely piece is called “Girl in the Cell” and is an anaglyph 3D art by Emma Terry.
I’ve never heard of the artist, no surprise there, I don’t know much about physical art to begin with… But the piece is awesome none the less! I love padded rooms, they look like fun to bounce around in, and yes I do enjoy my issues ^_^
The Nocturnal Folks were even kind enough to send out some old school cool 3D glasses to make our victim really pop! Neato!
The quote is spot on with me; I hate the silence, it makes me incredibly uncomfortable so I will always have music or Netflix (Yay Supernatural!) playing in the background… Anywho, This is something called a Chapbook. I’m guessing a short story, called 120 Seconds to Light by G. E. Smith and is #8 in the Flatline Chapbook series. It is in my scary stuff pile to read because I am still working on some requests and TBR but it looks pretty good. Each chapter, or section as it were, is Light 1, Light 2, Light 3, etc. Maybe building to 120? Sounds plausible and being #8 makes me want to find the preceding chapbooks… New discoveries Ho!!Before I introduce the books, here are the goodies!
Top Left: The always awesome book mark with the pic for this months theme
Top Right: An Overlook Hotel glass with the quote “Where the son always shines” (I have to admit I did have to look up what this was associated with… Yup, the Shinning. I feel like such a failure…)
Bottom Left: Shutter Island Match box (need to get this movie…)
Bottom Middle: Stephen King “Misery” pin, (it’s a bloody hatchet) hmmm, my book list is growing…
Bottom Right: Scream Queen 3D glasses, to go with the Girl in the Cell pic
Underneath It All: A Lord of the Flies tote! Love the movie, never read the book but now I have to! And if it wasn’t Piggy’s glasses at least it is an offering to the Beast ^_^
Finally the books!
The new release: Little Heaven by Nick Cutter
Goodreads Synopsis: From electrifying horror author Nick Cutter comes a haunting new novel, reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian and Stephen King’s It, in which a trio of mismatched mercenaries is hired by a young woman for a deceptively simple task: check in on her nephew, who may have been taken against his will to a remote New Mexico backwoods settlement called Little Heaven. Shortly after they arrive, things begin to turn ominous. Stirrings in the woods and over the treetops—the brooding shape of a monolith known as the Black Rock casts its terrible pall. Paranoia and distrust grips the settlement. The escape routes are gradually cut off as events spiral towards madness. Hell—or the closest thing to it—invades Little Heaven. The remaining occupants are forced to take a stand and fight back, but whatever has cast its dark eye on Little Heaven is now marshaling its powers…and it wants them all.
Previous Release: Suffer the Children by Craig DiLouie
Goodreads Synopsis: Suffer the Children presents a terrifying tale of apocalyptic fiction, as readers are introduced to Herod’s Syndrome, a devastating illness that suddenly and swiftly kills all young children across the globe. Soon, they return from the grave…and ask for blood. And with blood, they stop being dead. They continue to remain the children they once were…but only for a short time, as they need more blood to live. The average human body holds ten pints of blood, so the inevitable question for parents everywhere becomes: How far would you go to bring your child back?
So Suffer the Children was actually on my Goodreads TBR! and I have had my eye on Little Heaven for a few months so this was a total win in my opinion!
So what boxes are you guys subscribed to? Any of you seen/read these books/movies? Anyone into horror? I personally read/watch scary stuff then don’t sleep for a week but am still a fan ^_^ Share in the comments! Let’s be scared together!!
