Holiday Mini Reviews Pt. 1: The Lights & ‘Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas



THE LIGHTS by Carrie Pack:
Molly Monroe and her family have gone out to enjoy the town’s Festival of Lights along with her girlfriend Chelsea. As the lights go on, the town’s children start to act strangely, especially Molly’s brother, Roger. When the Monroe’s next door neighbors are killed in a grisly double homicide, Molly begins to believe the incident may be linked to the kids. Molly must convince Chelsea about what is happening and find a way to stop the power the lights hold.

I was looking for an entertaining Christmas horror novella when I stumbled upon this one. I can easily say I was not disappointed! This one is perfect for fans of creepy children! Carrie Pack has put together a fun and gory store that will leave you on the edge of your seat cheering for Molly to win her hometown back! 4⭐️ 

A series of several tales from Adam Kay’s experience as a junior doctor working the nightshift around the holiday season filled with laughter, entertainment, and heart. This book demonstrates the sacrifices and challenges that many working for the NHS face. 

I spotted this little work of nonfiction on Instagram last year and was instantly intrigued. I’m so happy I picked it up this holiday season! Kay has a way with words that makes his real life experiences feel almost like a work of fiction. When you remember that these stories are all real things that happened to Kay you truly understand all of the challenges the health system faces. There are moments of laughter and moments of sadness. This is perfect for anyone looking to add some seasonal nonfiction to their TBR! 4⭐️
