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 […]

Horror October: The Show That is Slowly Growing on Me

Horror October: The Show That is Slowly Growing on Me

I am a very reluctant watcher of this show. I tried it for the first time right after finishing Dexter (TO WHICH NOTHING COULD EVER COMPARE), and I didn’t like it at all. [side note, totally unrelated: I also tried the other show that Michael C. Hall plays in right around this same time – Six Feet Under – AND I JUST COULDN’T DO IT MAN. He is and always will be Dexter and to see him as anything else now […]

[Horror October] Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

[Horror October] Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish It’s pretty awesome that this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is villains, because I had originally planned a Horror October discussion about my favorite villains for tomorrow! So I’m combining Horror October and Top Ten Tuesday for this week :D I’m splitting today’s list up into two parts: villains that are my favorite because I love them, and villains that are my favorite because they are bad bad bad […]

Sometimes Giving an Author a Second Try Pays Off

Sometimes Giving an Author a Second Try Pays Off

This post is inspired directly from Paper Fury’s post Do You Give Authors’ Works Second Chances? Cait’s post posed a fabulous question, and when I went to comment on it I realized – there’s a lot of authors that have written books I love as well as books I hate. And coincidentally enough, when I stumbled on her post I was in the middle of Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson; which is significant because I love that series and I […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite TV Shows

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite TV Shows

Before we get started, there’s something you should know about me: I am NOT a TV series kind of person. I’m super picky and I’m TERRIBLE about keeping up with anything. (I watched the first two seasons of OUaT religiously, then missed the first episode of season 3 and just….never continued…) The ONLY non-anime show that I’ve ever stuck with past two seasons is Dexter. And since that finished I’ve never been able to find anything that could compare. (Stranger Things is […]

Audiobook Recs

Audiobook Recs

I realized recently that it’s been a LONG time since I’ve listened to an audiobook. And it makes me sad! I love audiobooks, for two reasons:  They allow you to read in situations where you may not otherwise be able to read; i.e. driving, or doing something with your hands (I listen while I craft sometimes!) When the narrators are really good, it adds even more to the story! Actually, there’s been a few times where I probably wouldn’t have […]
