Unmemory by Kristi DeMeester
Unmemory was one of the books included in my December Night Worms subscription box.
Goodreads Synopsis: An original, 9,000-word short story by Kristi DeMeester, with 10 illustrations by Yves Tourigny. A university student attempts to track down the briefly-glimpsed Christmas film which traumatized her as a child.
Review: This short story packs a punch!
The build up and illustrations felt like a five star read to me. I devoured it all at once, because the creepiness kept me glued to the page. I’m fairly certain it’s the first Christmas horror story I’ve ever read. We meet the main character as a child and things go from weird, to dark, to extremely disturbing. The illustrations were also phenomenal.
The thing that brought down the rating was the ending. I’m okay with some unanswered questions, but in this case I felt like I still had too many. I was not ready for it to be over.
