Horrorstor RECOMMENDED: Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix is $1.99! This is a dark comedy/horror novel about a haunted IKEA-esque store. Carrie reviewed the book a few months ago and gave it an A: Even in the darkest moments, the absurdity of the situation adds some sardonic humor. It’s hard not to giggle at a line like “They nailed me inside a Liripip” or a scenario in which someone’s survival depends on disassembling cheap furniture with one of those weird Allen wrench things. Something strange is happening at the Orsk furniture superstore in Cleveland. Every morning, employees arrive to find broken Kjerring wardrobes, shattered Brooka glassware, and vandalized Liripip sofa beds – clearly someone, or something, is up to no good. To unravel the mystery, five young employees volunteer for a long dusk-till-dawn shift and encounter horrors that defy imagination. Along the way, author Grady Hendrix infuses sly social commentary on the nature of work in the new twenty-first-century economy. A traditional haunted house story in a contemporary setting, and full of current fears, Horrorstör delivers a high-concept premise in a unique style.

So it was with an intense case of Grabby Hands that I dove for Problem Child, a novel that follows Jane during the next step in her life. And…well…. It pains me to say this, but it was okay. It’s a solid, capable book, but it never reaches the dizzying heights of its predecessor. First book summary! Jane spent the first book meting out the most glorious justice on a fuckboy whose cruelty had prompted her best (and only) friend to kill herself. At the close of book one, Jane is living happily in Minneapolis with her cat. She has a boyfriend, Luke, who finds her coldness a ‘cooling balm.’ He doesn’t know she’s cold because she’s a sociopath. At the start of book 2, unfortunately, Luke is about to mess up their happy ending by suggesting that he and Jane live together. Jane freaks out and finds a convenient excuse to temporarily escape the situation by agreeing to…
