Wicked Wednesday

Wicked Wednesday is pretty much self-explanatory. 
It's the day for those book reviews of select nommy tales that are so super steamy and erotic, they must come with a warning label. So hang your cloak of virtue on the rack and join me in the debauchery.

Genre ~ Anthology | Erotica | Horror
Pages ~ 133

My Rating ~ 4 bites

This is an anthology of stories based on superstitions and folklore. I was familiar with none of them and found them to be quite interesting. And they are most definitely not Disneyed-up. They contain sex and horror and are not for the faint-hearted. Well-written and creative, they will both titillate and horrify usually in the same story. If you enjoy having the creepy and the scary make the hairs on your body stand on end then by all means read this at night. However, if you prefer not to jump at unexpected noises and have your heart beat out of your chest then it might be best to read this in the day. Bright sunlight recommended.

Each of the titles gives the main point being addressed in the tale. Ewwww, is my main reaction to all of these but they are so wonderfully written that I can’t take off points for grossing me out. Very few of these have a happily ever after, so be warned.

  1. Erotic horror, that is an interesting idea. I've read retelling, but this sounds interesting. I'll have to see if my library has this. At 133 pages, it would be a quick read. I might grab it for my vacation that I take in the summer. I like it when I have some stories that are completely different on that trip. Thanks for sharing.
