Happy Women in Horror Month! It’s time for another session of Ladies of Horror Fiction: Shelf Edition! This time Mindi Snyder (@gowsy33) is joining us to show off her LOHF books. Mindi is a reviewer, bookstagrammer, member of the Nightworms review team, and rep for A Stranger Dream and PS Publishing.
Do you have any recent favorite LOHF books?
Last year I discovered Gwendolyn Kiste, and I adore everything she writes! The Rust Maidens is one of my absolute favorite books of 2018. I also love Caroline Kepnes. Providence is another favorite 2018 release. And Christa Carmen’s collection Something Borrowed, Something Bloodsoaked is fantastic. I’m really looking forward for more from these fantastic writers.
What LOHF books do you have on your TBR?
My TBR for the year has a number of LOHF books on it. The Invited by Jennifer McMahon, Fountain Dead by Theresa Braun, Cruel Works of Nature by Gemma Amor, Sleeping With the Monster by Anya Martin, Vox by Christina Dalcher, Garden of Eldritch Delights by Lucy A. Snyder, The Devil’s Dreamland by Sara Tantlinger…I could go on and on.
Where do you find recommendations? Are there any LOHF books that have been recommended to you that you loved?
I get most of my recommendations from either friends or social media. Lately Twitter has been a huge source of recommendations for me. I heard people talking about Kiste on both Instagram and Twitter, and I finally picked up her collection titled And Her Smile Will Untether the Universe. I was blown away, and I immediately wanted to read more from her. When I heard she had a book coming out so soon after I discovered her, I was elated.
Where do you shop for books?
Sadly, I shop mostly online. I try as often as I can to shop at the independent stores near me, but more often than not they don’t stock what I’m looking for. I buy out of print or hard to find books from Alibris.
Are there any upcoming LOHF releases you’re excited about?
I’m really excited to read The Invited by Jennifer McMahon. I also want to spend 2019 discovering more women who write horror. There are so many fantastic writers out there, and I know I’ve only just scratched the surface.
Where can people find you on social media?
Readers, please let us know what you think of the new segment and leave a note in the comments if you would be interested in showing off your LOHF books in our next segment of LOHF Shelf Edition! Thanks for joining us Mindi. We adored your shelves and learning more about your bookish ways!
