Friday Feels- March 6th, 2020

Happy Friday Night Worms! Let me ask you a few questions. How do you feel about ghosts? How about pirates? What about sea monsters? Do you like them? If you answered yes to these questions then LORDS OF THE DEEP by Tim Meyer and Patrick Lacey is for you. This book flies by and is flooded with creativity and fun. It’s a solid book with a very Hopper-like cop. At least, I pictured him like Hopper *swoon* Pick this book up if you want an amazing read that is sure to entertain....

Creature Feature: Vampires


This year, I will be reading as many books about monsters and creatures that I can. Each month, I will focus on a different type of monster and reporting my results in a series of articles. For January, I decided to read vampire books. I wanted to focus on lesser-known and indie titles for these articles, so if I don't include a classic in my run down, forgive me.

The Night Worms review team got together to do another book party and this time we read WHISPERS IN THE DARK by Laurel Hightower.

The team was EXCITED about this book. Check out the blurbs from our review team and the photos that showed up on social media.


We have a lot more book parties planned, so be on the...

Friday Feels- February 28th, 2020

Happy Friday Night Worms!  It’s our last #fridayfeels of Women in Horror Month and I had a completely different post planned for today but then I binged this whole book. (It was supposed to be a buddy read and I just flew through it, oops.) As soon as I set it down I knew I had to show this one off instead of my originally planned photo. THE BABYSITTER’S COVEN by Kate Williams is as much fun on the inside as it is on the outside. There are some...

Hysteria and Female Writers

How dumb old-timey doctors made females do nothing all day because they made books instead of babies.


For me to tell you what a struggle it was for early female writers, especially female horror writers, I have to give you a very brief overview of what hysteria was. Hysteria was the first mental disorder attributed to women. It was a catch-all-dumpster-fire of a diagnosis for women who didn’t behave like men thought they should. Didn’t want to have sex? HYSTERIA. You wanted to have “too much sex?” HYSTERIA. Didn’t obey your husband’s every command? HYSTERIA. Sometimes...
