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 […]

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 […]

Review: Solitary by Alexander Gordon Smith

Review: Solitary by Alexander Gordon Smith

There was only Furnace. It was our world, our grave, our hell. I don’t know if it was a mood issue for me or what, but this book didn’t quite live up to the first one. For some reason it didn’t have the magic, it wasn’t as intense, and it wasn’t as scary. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a creepy setting with disturbing things happening, but it didn’t have me all: like the first one did. And for some reason the […]
