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 […]

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 […]

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
Posted by Jessi (Geo) on October 12, 2013 | 19 Comments

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 […]
