Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish       Hmm, there seems to be a theme XD Row 1 – Sci-fi (aka ominous-sounding 1 word titles) Corruption by Jessica Shirvington – I loved Disruption hardcore, I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel!

[Horror October] Top Ten Tuesday: Creepy Covers

Yay, another week where Top Ten Tuesday coincides with a topic I had chosen for Horror October! Today I’ve chosen my top ten favorite creepy book covers!

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!

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 […]
