Paperbacks from Hell: The Twisted History of '70s and '80s Horror FictionPaperbacks from Hell: The Twisted History of '70s and '80s Horror Fiction by Grady Hendrix
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've had my eye on this gorgeous book for a long time. 👀 So when hubby ordered a copy, I couldn't wait and loved the hell out of it as soon as it arrived. 😍

Seriously, this is a beautiful book full of gory, excellent and cheesy covers. Every page is packed with SO MUCH AWESOME, sometimes it took me forever to turn the page.

Grady Hendrix sure has a way with words, and the way he introduces the many (many) books, authors, cover artists and publishers is outstanding. And hilarious. Plus very informative.

Not to mention how well he captured the way each time period was reflected in horror books from the 70s, 80s and 90s.

I actually had to skip a few story descriptions because I was surprised to find I have quite a few of the mentioned books on my TBR pile. It was also cool to see the many I've already read.

I took my sweet fucking time with this book, and it somehow seems fitting to have finished it on Christmas Day 2020.

Paperbacks from Hell is a must-have book for any and every horror fan's book collection. It's going to look amazing on my bookshelf next to my other, very pretty Hendrix books. 😈💕
