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 […]

Horror October Discussion: Horror in Books

Horror October Discussion: Horror in Books

Todays topic: The horror genre in books! As I said in my discussion about horror in film: I loooove horror. I love creepy, dark stories. BUT…I am very picky. I do not scare easily at all, and I find 95% of the horror out there comedic rather than scary. I also don’t have a weak stomach. The gorier, the better!  I have yet to find a book that could actually scare me. As of right now, I remain skeptical that it’s […]

Review: Insomnia by J.R. Johansson

Review: Insomnia by J.R. Johansson

Writing reviews for books that didn’t give you much passion either way is very difficult. This is one of those books, sadly. I’m having trouble pinpointing the issue here. The idea behind Insomnia was fantastic, really. Being able to see the dreams of the last person you made eye contact with? Such an interesting concept! But I felt totally ‘meh’ through the whole book. I just couldn’t connect with the story at all. Or our main character, Parker. (I already […]

Review: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

Review: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

Perhaps I doomed myself by going into this book with sky high hopes. And perhaps I deserve it because even after seeing some not-so-great reviews, my shallow nature wouldn’t let me walk away from the beautiful, beautiful cover. (Damn you, beautiful cover, damn you.) But my goodness, I was highly disappointed in this book! First of all, WHERE IS THE GOTHIC NOVEL I WAS PROMISED?!?! This was supposed to be a horror! This book is NOT a horror. It is […]

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 […]
