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 […]

Full list of Life of a Blogger topics. Last week’s topic: Origin of your name This week’s topic: Halloween I’ve always loved Halloween. I love horror and scary things! Growing up, it was always tradition to go out trick-or-treating with my parents. There was always a big event at my campground where everyone sat on the tables with candy and the kids would go through the tables. It was awesome! I really, really miss trick-or-treating. I loved it so much that […]

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: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

Review: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

I have heard of this book through many bloggers, and have seen TONS of glowing reviews for it. I’ve seen people talk about how it changed their life. (This was actually my first foray into the Middle Grade genre.) Honestly, I don’t even know how to review and rate this because this book didn’t really do anything for me. It was deep…almost too deep for the audience it was meant for. But at the same time, it felt like kind of […]
