    The “Weather” Recap

    It seems the weather has been acting crazy everywhere for the past couple of months.  It’s been snowing more than normal.  It’s been drowning people with loads of rain.  It’s been scorching hot and unbearable to walk outside.  You name it, Mother Nature has been doing it.  But let’s check out some of our favorite LOHF books that encompass something weather-related! In case you missed it, don’t forget to see our recap last week where we show some highlights from the “VILLAIN” prompt!

    The “Villain” Recap

    Who is the first villain that pops to mind when you think of books? For a lot of us it could be Lord Voldemort, Sauron, Randall Flagg, Dracula, and so on.   But thanks to this prompt we were able to find out about so many others! (Psst: Miss last week’s recap of “Heart”? Check it out here.) View this post on Instagram My next Night Worms read sounds *super* interesting. The promo on the back says… “Bridget Jones meets the Exorcist” 😂😂😂 I gotta say, ‘nuff said ✋🏼 This book is also for the #ladiesofhorrorfiction prompt today “villain”.

    The “Heart” Recap

    The recap from last week was all about your ‘Recommendations’ so take a second to go check it out if you missed it! Did we change the challenge on you all with all this talk of “hearts” and whatnot?  Absolutely not!  Horror books can have a little heart in them and still be horror!  See some of our favorites from this prompt below. View this post on Instagram “Oh! Be men, or be more than men. Be steady to your purposes and firm as a rock. This ice is not made of such stuff as your hearts may be; it is mutable and cannot withstand you if you say that…

    The “Recommendations” Recap

    This whole challenge has been great for recommending different books written by female horror authors, right?  But we know there are a lot of books that may not fit with a certain prompt, so this week we are recapping “recommendations” to make sure that no book has been left behind! (If you did get a bit left behind, and missed our “strangers” recap, check it out here.) View this post on Instagram Recommendation. I’m going with Shirley Jackson here. The Haunting of Hill House is one of my favorites. It’s held up well and I think it’s a must read for any horror fan. We Have Always Lived in the…

    The “My Emotions” Recap

    When it comes to “My Emotions,” there are different things that can affect us and make us ecstatic, angry, or cringe.  Emotions can be our biggest ally or our most dreaded enemy.  But here we are stirring up all the things for a look-back on this prompt to bring out all those emotions again! View this post on Instagram Today’s #ladiesofhorrorfiction prompt is my emotions. I think this title about sums it up. #book #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookworm #bookaddict #bookaddiction #bookish #horror #thriller #emotions #bibliophile #spinebenders #toberead #bookishcanadians #bookobsessed A post shared by Rodney Mercer 🇨🇦 (@rodthebookworm68) on Aug 23, 2018 at 4:36am PDT Rodthebookworm68 shared with us A Dark and…

    The “Summer” Recap

    This one reminded me of exactly how badly I keep wishing it was Fall already. Not because of the pics, but because it reminded me it was too bloody hot outside!  For me, there are fewer things worse than being hot and sweaty.  I would much prefer staying cool/cold because there are dozens of ways to warm up.  But it’s not like you can just cool down by taking your skin off.  And taking your clothes off will get you thrown in jail most places.  So, give me cool/cold weather over the hellish heat of summer any day! View this post on Instagram Summer is typically my least favorite season.…

    The “Moon” Recap

    It’s hard not to think of werewolf stories when we think of the MOON in horror, right? While there were quite a few chosen for the prompt, we definitely got a lot of variety!  What do you think about the ones below? (By the way, if you missed our HOUSE recap, you can find it here.)
