Happy Friday! This weekend I’m reading The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix. I’m also still listening to The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires so I have two Grady Hendrix books on the go at the moment. This guy has got a bit of a thing for convoluted titles. My Best Friend’s Exorcism is another one from him that I enjoyed. I don’t read much horror but I watch a LOT of horror movies and his books have the feel of horror movies. The Final Girl Support Group especially does because each character is based on a final girl from famous horror movies. It’s interesting figuring out who’s who though some of them are obvious. I’m about a third of the way into the book now and enjoying it. The pacing is a bit slow but it’s a solid concept that is just starting to find its feet.

The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix
A fast-paced, thrilling horror novel that follows a group of heroines to die for, from the brilliant New York Times bestselling author of The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires.
In horror movies, the final girl is the one who’s left standing when the credits roll. The one who fought back, defeated the killer, and avenged her friends. The one who emerges bloodied but victorious. But after the sirens fade and the audience moves on, what happens to her?
Lynnette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre twenty-two years ago, and it has defined every day of her life since. And she’s not alone. For more than a decade she’s been meeting with five other actual final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, putting their lives back together, piece by piece. That is until one of the women misses a meeting and Lynnette’s worst fears are realized–someone knows about the group and is determined to take their lives apart again, piece by piece.
But the thing about these final girls is that they have each other now, and no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.
