Day 18 of #mabsdrawlloweenclub is Dumbest Pumpkin, but I prefer a Creepy one (that feeling when everyone thinks you're a cute little girl, but you're actually the Pumpkin Demon) 🎃 (Music: Misfits – Pumpkin Head)
When it comes to morals, most of us think we'd never be capable of certain acts. But what could you be capable of under duress? .

"People find hope, comfort, or confidence in making the sign of the cross or not walking under a ladder, just as you find hope and confidence in offering a pennant to the witch. Magic exists in the minds of those who believe in it, not in its actual influence on reality."

I'm not sure if I enjoyed Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt. It had been on my TBR list for a while - ever since the book marketing around its UK launch actually (it was quite phenomenal) - and it truly is terrifying. If you're looking for the creepiest read of your year, this could be it. The haunting in this novel is so brilliantly rendered and there were more than a few moments where I felt the need to check the cupboards for monsters.

It was also incredibly impressive how the story deals with the question of monstrosity. I love stories that quibble over the nature of evil and Hex absolutely does this. On the other hand, it is one of the most peculiarly misogynistic novels I have ever read. Bar the witch and an abused widow, women only feature in the novel as wives and girlfriends. And both widow and witch are demonised throughout, which I suspect is partly the point as Heuvelt definitely explores village and mob mentality. Yet there's also a weird repetition of breast imagery and violence against breasts that just doesn't really sit. I can't tell if this is the translation, a deliberate attempt by Heuvelt to create some kind of symbolism, or if it's just a weird and peculiar hatred of women that's coming through in his writing. .
.
Anyway, a great October read if you fancy it but prepare to be disturbed and potentially offended if you do.
