Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Review: The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Why did I wait so long to read this book?! I’d been seeing a lot of people say good things about it, but for some reason I thought it was a Historical so I was put off from reading it. It’s not a Historical, but it is about the Amish, which isn’t something I would usually be interested in reading (only because I steer clear of any books with religion). But I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this […]

Review: Solitary by Alexander Gordon Smith

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: (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 […]

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 […]
