The Spawn by Ken Nolan – Retail Value $15.99 (On Amazon for $14.39)

Book Summary from Amazon:

Rosemary’s Baby from the husband’s point of view written by an award-winning Hollywood screenwriter.

The Spawn plunges the reader into a world of shadows, secrets, and growing, unspeakable horror.

Meet the Malcolms. They’ve just moved in to a home they can’t afford, they’re trying to climb a social ladder that they don’t belong on, and both are chasing careers that are just out of their grasp. They want a child, but every time they try, every attempt they make, fails.

Charles Malcolm, successful bestselling writer of cutting-edge, timely pop-science books finds himself staring at the blank screen. Unable to top himself yet again, he descends into writer’s block, and finds himself taking long walks through Boston’s historic cemeteries, his dog at his side.

Janet Malcolm finds herself chasing partnership at a high-powered law firm while facing her latest medical results — she can’t have children. Desperate, Janet will try anything to have a baby.

Charles watches as his wife seems to change before his eyes, spending more time with the mysterious and alluring couple next door. Then, one day a miracle occurs–Janet is pregnant. Charles is elated. Why wouldn’t he be? But…was it a miracle?

Charles realizes that he can’t remember certain periods of time, and has horrifying glimpses of memories–cult members, blood, and some…thing, from the deep ocean, risen, hungry, red-eyed. As his new infant son grows ever larger, he begins to suspect that the boy may not have been conceived naturally.

As Janet slips into madness, Charles begins to doubt everything in his life, from the people around him, from his next door neighbors, to his own wife, and finally—to his infant son.

These are both Supernatural inspired items. (The Always Keep Fighting Keychain is inspired by Jared Padalecki’s cause to help bring awareness to mental health issues).

Spellbound Nails Supernatural Inspired Collection – Value $14

I love indie nail polish! And this trio set is really cute – I like that they sent three minis to sample instead of 1 full-size.

Verdict: I think LitCube does such a fantastic job with curation! This box wasn’t perfect for me since I can’t read scary books (I’m passing this one along to my husband Eric), and I don’t watch Supernatural – but I’m thinking I should start!

What do you think of the October 2015 LitCube box?

  1. My keychain was broken and I was told she was shipping one out to me the next day, that was 3 weeks ago. Also a disappointing button, how do you get that wrong? This box was a huge disappointment for me but I have been a fan of some previous boxes.

  2. They got the button wrong. It is “Saving people, hunting things, the family business”. Supernatural geek here.

    • Supernatural geek here too. I was SO disappointed when I saw that button. With all the Supernatural items on Etsy, I was kind of hoping for something better than scented nail polish and an incorrect button…

      Love the keychain though.

  3. Oh I love that keychain!!

  4. I love this book subscription box. The owner, Peggy, is awesome to deal with. I like this subscription service’s variety.
