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 […]

Horror October Discussion: Horror in Film

Horror October Discussion: Horror in Film

Todays topic: The horror genre 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!  [edit: I also don’t get nightmares. Ever. The only movie that ever gave me a (kind of) nightmare is The Notebook, because it reminded me of my past and I dreamt […]
