To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The concept of this book is really cool: each horror story is 1,500 words or less. The results are a mixed bag; some of the stories are excellent and some are meh. On the bright side, each story is only a few pages so if one is not your cuppa it is over soon.
It’s that time of year when everyone wants a jolt of Tiny Nightmares. There is no easier way to get ready for Halloween than reading one or more of these super short horror stories in the dark before bed!
From climate change to a subway rat to mother’s milk, these stories have themes beyond the usual vampires and werewolves—though those are here too. With forty-two tales, there is something for every taste. To be honest, it is extremely rare to enjoy every story in a collection. However, Tiny Nightmares did not disappoint at all. Each story is a glance into someone’s life, which is about to veer straight into disaster. Each is excellent, even though they are completely different. My personal favorites were “Rearview” and “Leg”, just for their pure unadulterated weirdness.
I can’t recommend this book higher to horror fans. 5 stars and a favorite!
Thanks to Catapult, Black Balloon Publishing, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
