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 […]

Review: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys Anthology

Review: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys Anthology

This was my first experience reading an anthology all the way through. I’ve only ever picked up one other anthology before, and I think I flipped through and read the one story I wanted to read, ha. But it was pretty good! There were a few stories I loved and a few stories I didn’t like at all, so it evened out. I had trouble connecting to most of the stories due to the short length of them. That’s really […]

Review: Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith

Review: Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith

Why oh why did I wait so long to pick this one up?! It’s been sitting on my shelf forever, but it was never really one that I was super interested in. While perusing my shelves for something horror that could also count toward the Rewind Challenge, I discovered this one. I’m SO glad I did! This book was pretty freaking awesome! There wasn’t a dull moment in this entire book. EVER. Seriously, it was non-stop, heart-pounding action! The first […]

Review: Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

Review: Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

Meh. That’s the best word I can describe this book with, and it’s mostly all I have to say about it. But I can’t write a one word review, can I? First of all, this book was weird. And confusing. There were a lot of WTF moments, and sometimes it didn’t make any sense at all. There were a lot of terms that weren’t explained, either: downhollow, fiend (which I eventually figured out was basically a demon), crooked (I finally […]

Review: Feed by Mira Grant

Review: Feed by Mira Grant

Once again, I am the black sheep here. I really thought I could FINALLY find a zombie book I could actually love (so far, there are none), but again, I was wrong. I just want to say first: I really enjoyed Parasite. I loved the convincing world building, and the concept was so realistic it was almost scary. So, if you agree with me and didn’t like Feed, I still suggest picking up Parasite. I am very character driven when it […]

Review: The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey

Review: The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey

 This book was very tough to rate for me. I had extremely bipolar thoughts about this book, and the rating should be broken down as such: Scenes with the Anthropophagi Scenes without the Anthropophagi It’s no secret that I am NOT a fan of historical by any means, and I had no clue going into this that it would be historical (I saw Rick Yancey + gruesome horror and didn’t bother to read anymore). So, I was bored to tears in the […]
