Sour Candy + Blanky – Kealan Patrick Burke // 2 MINI Reviews

So the book club I participate in Gore n More  was featuring two novellas from Kealan Patrick Burke. I was so excited because this author has been on my radar for a while now and couldn’t pass up this opportunity to check him out! So did I find a new favorite horror author? Let’s find out!

Sour Candy



At first glance, Phil Pendleton and his son Adam are just an ordinary father and son, no different from any other. They take walks in the park together, visit county fairs, museums, and zoos, and eat together overlooking the lake. Some might say the father is a little too accommodating given the lack of discipline when the child loses his temper in public. Some might say he spoils his son by allowing him to set his own bedtimes and eat candy whenever he wants. Some might say that such leniency is starting to take its toll on the father, given how his health has declined.

What no one knows is that Phil is a prisoner, and that up until a few weeks ago and a chance encounter at a grocery store, he had never seen the child before in his life.

 GENRE – Horror

Spookathon WRAP UP

So I participated in my first ever readathon!

For those who don’t know a readathon is when a group of people come together for a certain amount of time to read as much as possible.

This readathon was called Spookathon and lasted from 10 / 16 – 10 / 22 and was themed around reading spooky books. It was created by Lala @ BooksandLala , Shannon @ Bookerly , and Paige @ Paige’sPages!

The challenges for this readathon were :

  1. Read a Thriller 🗹
  2. Read a book with spooky word in the title 🗹
  3. Read a book based on a childhood fear 🗹
  4. Read a book with orange on the cover 🗹
  5. Read a book that has a spooky setting 🗹

Altogether I read 5 books (kind of) during the week and I’m so proud of that!

The ratings on these books were :

0 – ★
