Review: The Curse of the Wendigo by Rick Yancey

Review: The Curse of the Wendigo by Rick Yancey

The monstrous act by definition demands a monster. I have VERY mixed feelings about this book, even more so than the first one. I loved the first book simply for the fact that it was super creepy, gripping, and was actual horror. This one was a lot more…disturbing. It was very gruesome, which I love. It’s totally twisted, but I love gory stuff! And this one was the goriest of the gory. I mean, there was a certain scene close to the end […]

Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Why did I wait so long to read this book?! I’d been seeing a lot of people say good things about it, but for some reason I thought it was a Historical so I was put off from reading it. It’s not a Historical, but it is about the Amish, which isn’t something I would usually be interested in reading (only because I steer clear of any books with religion). But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this […]

Horror October: YA Horror Books (are lacking)

Horror October: YA Horror Books (are lacking)

As I was looking for books I wanted to read for Horror October, I realized something: There’s not very many YA horror books. I’m not talking “horror” stories that are about cute ghosts or are all romancey and shit. I’m talking REAL. HORROR. Gory, homicidal, disturbing, you’re-going-to-die, HORROR. There are only two books I’ve ever read that were labeled as horror that I actually consider to be real horror:   The Monstrumologist and Lockdown. Both were totally dark and twisted, and […]
