The Horror Honeys: Hardcover Thursday Jam - 'Invisible Monsters'

Hardcover Thursday Jam - 'Invisible Monsters'

It’s hard to admit, my weaknesses can consume me
I search for the cure in the bottles of varied volumes, yeah
The joke of it is I express myself without purpose, a purpose for living
Yet you devour my small bits 
Of madness and make-believe...

Is a book with the line, “Could you hold the chainsaw a bit closer to your mouth, please?” a horror novel? Not necessarily; but anyone who has read a novel by Chuck Palahniuk knows that his works often blur the line between the horror of reality, and the horror of horror. Often times, his stories are just so gut-wrenchingly sad that they leave the reader wrecked, while other times his books can be actually terrifying. But his first-ish novel, Invisible Monsters, was so inspirationally beautiful and sad and downright horrifying that it inspired indie pop band Motion City Soundtrack to write a song based on the book. So read the book if you haven't, but definitely enjoy today's Honey Jam! ~RH
