[Horror October] Review: Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda

[Horror October] Review: Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda

Holy WOW, that was intense!!!! I have to admit that this one started out a bit rocky. When I first met Tuck, it seemed like his narrative was trying too hard to be a cocky teenage male. (Also, there was an unnecessary comparison of his shrunken balls to walnuts, like why??) But in the first few pages this book grabs you by the balls (see, now he’s got me talking about balls) and doesn’t let go! The monsters in this book – mourners, […]

[Horror October] Mini Review:The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

[Horror October] Mini Review:The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

Okay, I didn’t expect to enjoy this one so much! I don’t know why I put it off for so long. Mostly, the hype scared me. But it was so well deserved! I am IN LOVE with the premise of this book. I loved the idea that three women, who were drowned in the sea for being accused of witches, come back every year to seek revenge on the town that killed them. So awesome!! This book was so beautiful […]

[Horror October] Review: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

[Horror October] Review: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Fear is a hungry beast. The more you feed it, the more it grows. I have been putting this book off for SO long! To be honest, the hype was a bit intimidating. It’s also Historical, which is so not my thing. So I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this one. As it turns out, I’m somewhere in the middle. I did enjoy it, but I didn’t love it. I don’t know what it is about a Historical setting that […]

ARC Review: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

ARC Review: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Trigger warning: Rape, abuse, animal killing I have NO clue what I was expecting when I picked this book up – I know I read the synopsis when I added it but for some reason I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a ‘me’ book. Actually, I was quite sure it wasn’t going to be and I don’t even know why. The result? I was blown away! In the very beginning I was HOOKED, and positively loving it. […]

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

[Horror October] Review: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

Did I read an entirely different book than everyone else read?! I am 1000% disappointed in this. This is the second Kiersten white novel that didn’t work for me, and I confess I’m starting to lose faith in her books. For being a rather short book, it was INSANELY boring. Basically nothing happened for 95% of this book. The first exciting scene is nearly 70 pages in (in the ARC, anyway), then the next thing to happen is yet another […]

ARC Review: Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd

ARC Review: Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd

My poor dears. My grim little lovelies. I have pretty mixed feelings about this book. The main emotion that I feel after reading? Disappointment. This was one of my most anticipated 2018 releases, and I expected it to be amazing. Sadly, it wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, it was still good – just…not great. The concept and world were the gems of this novel. The whole world of magic and the idea of the beasties was incredible!! Honestly this book […]
