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: Week 1 Recap

Horror October: Week 1 Recap

Sign up HERE! Okay, so I had a little recap in yesterday’s Heartbeat Weekly, but after thinking about it I decided I’d really like to do a separate post for these. Also, I want to add a linky to give everyone a chance to link their Horror October related posts! Week 1 recap What I read Sadly the only book I finished was Solitary. I’m about 40 pages into The Hallowed Ones right now, though, and it’s really good so […]

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 […]

Horror October 2016 Sign Ups

Horror October 2016 Sign Ups

Okay, so I used to participate in Horror October hosted by Leanne @ Literary Excursion, then when she moved to Oh, the Books! and they group hosted it. I missed out on doing anything at all for October last year, and that makes me very sad indeed! Oh, the Books! is no longer hosting Horror October, which also makes me sad. The only thing I can find similar is A Fortnight of Fright, hosted by Book Addicts Guide, Books Take […]

Review: (Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn

Review: (Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn

Wow, this story was delightfully twisted! I noticed going in that this book had some pretty low ratings on Goodreads, which had me worried. In the beginning I wasn’t sure I even wanted to read it, because it’s pretty freaking weird and confusing and I had no idea what the hell was going on. But, as the story went on, I started to get a feel for the creepy isolated town and what was happening there. And I loved it! This book […]
