They come at night
When the moon grows dark
To steal your treasures
And weaken your heart
An empty bed Is all that remains
If the Bad Things decide
To visit again
Mommies take care
Watch your young as they slumber
For babies and children
The Bad Things do hunger
Check closets and attics
And under all beds
If the Bad Things come calling
You'll wish you were dead.
I enjoyed these tales when I read them before & I've really enjoyed the audiobook version as well! They keep me entertained while I'm working & make the day go faster.
On the audio: The narrator did a nice job of keeping my attention with her altering voices, & her words flowed easily. I look forward to listening to more audiobooks with her reading them.
On the stories: Bad Things has a nice assortment of scary creatures that will definitely make you think twice about that bump in the night! Willow Cross has a knack for these sorts of spooky that I seek out eagerly! If you enjoyed this set or enjoy these types of books I suggest checking out her other horror series, Haunted, as well.
Jumped in to this right after the Haunting Box Set. Definitely scarier but still just as good. 13 graves had me scared right off the bat. I was listening to it at night but decided I would switch to the day because I was jumping at every little sound. Great book. Just like sitting around with friends and telling ghost stories!
This collection of short paranormal stories by Willow Cross are great. I listened to them during the day, at work. Right after I started them, I had a co-worker come up to me and tap me on the shoulder. To say I did not jump would be a lie! These are great short stories and I would def recommend them. They were fun and had just enough element of surprise to them that made me squirm. Well done!!!
If you could sum up Bad Things in three words, what would they be?
Possibly true weirdness
Who was your favorite character and why?
Loved the second story the best. Plot was great and was told in a way that kept you guessing.
Any additional comments?
This was a great fun listen and certainly not something to listen to while driving in the country at night.
