Horror October: Favorite Horror Movies

Horror October: Favorite Horror Movies

Top 10 General Horror   Silent Hill. This movie has always been (and will always be) my favorite horror movie ever. I love how twisted and creepy it is! I’ve seen it a zillion times and it never gets old. The second movie, however…DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED. Oculus. HOLY. CRAP. GUYS. I can’t even BEGIN to tell you how freaktastic this movie is! The first time I ever saw it it made me feel like I was losing my mind. […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I’d Name My Pets After

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I’d Name My Pets After

*rubs hands together* I just so happen to have a note saved in my phone where I keep a running list of all the pet names I love, and there’s a ton of bookish names on there! Grimalkin from The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. This is on the very top of my list, and I’ve been on the lookout for a long-haired gray male kitten ;) Buruu from The Lotus Wars trilogy by Jay Kristoff. MY FAVORITE CHARACTER […]

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

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 […]
