Lola’s Blog Tours presents my review of Sahar Sabati’s Chills:A Short Story Collection

chills coverChills: a short story collection
by Sahar Sabati

Genre: Suspense
Age Category: Adult
Release Date: 17 October 2013

Blurb:
The same people are impossibly spotted in two different places at once; a man considers murdering the husband of a woman he loves; while driving home very early in the morning, a driverless car appears out of the fog and follows two sisters home. Fear of the unknown, emotional intensity, and plain old creepiness will give you chills long after you have finished reading the seven stories in this collection.

My Review

The short stories in this collection were really well written and I truly enjoyed reading each of them. Some of them were heartbreaking as in the case with Karma, but each were thought provoking and might not give you a horror movie type chill but it did make you think or raised the little hairs on the back of your neck after you from overthinking. It was very Bradbury-esque. One or 2 of them might even keep you up late at night as you let it simmer in your pysche but every single one of the short stories in Sahar Sabati’s Chills was a pleasure to read. I would definitely recommend.

Profile Picture - MediumAbout the author:
The author of Spirit Within Club and Chills: A Short Story Collection, Sahar was born the first of three siblings and the first of eight cousins who grew up together. Thrust in the role of head of the brood at a very early age, she honed her imagination by creating stories and plotlines the eight of them could play to all summer long. But soon, her interest in the paranormal took its toll on said brood. Worried on the long-term effects (as well as potential therapy costs) of this continual exposure to increasingly scary stories her oldest was (too) expertly weaving for their terrified ears, her mother gave her a typewriter – and a writer was born. Many books, a couple of screenplays, countless short stories, numerous essays, two blogs, and one Facebook page later, Sahar joined the ranks of Blogcritics, delving into the world of reviews.

This week’s Question:
 
Are you also a writer and what genre or did you ever consider writing? – Suggested by The Pegster Reads
 
I’m a writer and my preferred genre to write in is Contemporary and Fantasy. I started seriously writing again because of my Fanfiction addled years  writing and reading in the Glee,Merlin, Doctor Who, Law and Order UK fandoms. It changed my life (and my sleep cycle) and it fueled my desire to create stories again, something that I’d thought I’d lost for good after graduating.
 
Anyways, drop me a comment or a like, and I’ll follow you back if you follow me 🙂
