Welcome aboard, train wreck
Have you heard of book nooks? I didn’t until recently. But now that I’ve seen them, I want one for every shelf.

And coffee and wine for the rest of my time that isn’t reading. So, thank you.
So, for the uninitiated, a book nook is a small scene that fits in between your books, It can be book or genre related. I saw one that was based on the artist’s childhood bedroom where her dad read bedtime stories to her. But since this is spooky season, I looked around for some horror based ones. And I was not disappointed. I found most from Google and that took me to Reddit. Admittedly, my sleuthing skills are not on par with my cozy mystery protagonists. If you know who the original poster is for these, please let me know. I would love to give them credit because these pieces are works of art.

And this is so well done. It’s such an iconic image and to be able to have it sitting on the shelf would be a dream. In no universe am I talented enough to pull this off but I have included the instructions in case you try it. If you do, could you let me know. I would love to see it.
It’s simple and elegant and I love it. I just love the creativity. It doesn’t appear to be based on any specific book or movie. Just your average crazy person walking through the house with a weapon. And what lovely tombstones. I love the lighting but more I love the “books” that edge this scene.
It’s a classic scene, but does anyone else want to smack him when he mispronounces Chianti? Anyway. The attention to detail on this is nuts. Look at the drawings in the cell. That’s crazy good. Even if they are printed, that printer quality is :chef’s kiss: amazing. And the lighting. It’s bare and cold and perfect.
This book and John Wayne Gacy are the reason I’m terrified of clowns. The person who did this nailed every creepy detail. I love the small homage to Tim Curry on here. This is so well done and well executed. And if it wasn’t for the fact that I would be scared to walk past it, I would have it on my shelf.
Listen. Here’s the thing. Aliens scare the hell out of me. I’m not talking ET and ALF. I mean the little gray guys and these things. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. These things are tapped right into my nightmares. But this nook is amazing. I love how you are set outside looking in. I swear I can hear the slime dripping.
Well there you have it. A few horror themed book nooks to raise your bookshelves to the next level.
