Review: Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

Review: Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff

Meh. That’s the best word I can describe this book with, and it’s mostly all I have to say about it. But I can’t write a one word review, can I? First of all, this book was weird. And confusing. There were a lot of WTF moments, and sometimes it didn’t make any sense at all. There were a lot of terms that weren’t explained, either: downhollow, fiend (which I eventually figured out was basically a demon), crooked (I finally […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn

Review: Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn

Another Little Piece was dark and rather twisted, and I think that’s why I enjoyed it. It was kinda f*cked up at times, and sometimes I wondered what the heck I was reading, but in a good way! Every time I found another piece of the past, I wasn’t remembering it so much as reliving it. I like the way the story was told, with little snippets of flashbacks mixed in with the present. I saw a lot of complaints […]

Review: Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake

Review: Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake

Caution: May contain spoilers for Anna Dressed in Blood I’ve been seeing everyone rave about how amazing this book was, how it was even better than the first….but I was disappointed. It didn’t even come close to comparing to Anna (which I rated 4 stars). There was a major disconnect from the story for me. I don’t exactly know why, but I couldn’t muster up any emotion at all. I didn’t care about the characters or what was happening. Honestly, I […]
