I bought this book back when I was in Uni, I wanted to read something creepy, scary and gross because I was bored at night. So I naturally bought this book HAH

A good collection, gonna be one of my favorite short stories book now. Recommended!

However, to each their own..one man's treasure might be another man's poison. 🤔 Well, give it a try, who knows this one could be a good read for you too..righ
