Book Review: The Fall of Lisa Bellow by Susan Perabo

Though wonderfully written, The Fall of Lisa Bellow is not what I expected it to be. That isn’t to say that it isn’t a good read, — it most definitely is — but because it was not as I had envisioned it, it took me much longer to get through the book than …

La Llorona: The Weeping Woman

In the wake of all the creepy clown nonsense that has been sweeping the States, I happened across a meme that poked fun at those frightened by the idea of random clowns popping up. It referenced La Llorona, or the weeping woman, as being, more or less, the Hispanic equivalent. …

Book Review: Siren of Depravity by Gary Fry

To say that I love all things horror would be an understatement; in fact, I thrive on the very things that many people turn away from with an upturned nose. It’s not uncommon that I’m asked, “How can you read that kind of stuff? Doesn’t it give you nightmares?” Even …

Book Review: The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison

Several months ago, I chose Dot Hutchison’s The Butterfly Garden as my Kindle First novel, and I do not regret it. As always, I feel it is my duty as a fan of such dark things to alert potential readers to things that I find within a book, movie, or series …

Podcast Review: Cryptid Creatures

I’ve only just recently gotten into the act of listening to podcasts, largely at the behest of my boyfriend. I’m not the type of person that listens to music unless I’m driving, and I am often content to sit in complete and total silence. At present, I’m playing catch up …

Book Review: Eat the Night by Tim Waggoner

To see is to know. To know is to die. To die is to become nothing, and Nothing is Everything. If you’re looking for a good ol’, classic horror tale in the flavor of Evil Dead or Army of Darkness, Tim Waggoner’s Eat the Night is a must-read. It’s fast paced and filled …

Book Review: All That Remains by Al Barrera

Thirteen years ago, the world ended. It was not by nuclear fallout, and as far as the reader can tell, it may have been extraterrestrial in origin: whatever caused it remains shrouded in mystery, even as this quick, action-packed tale comes to an end. All That Remains by Al Barrera …

Thrift Picks: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1) by Stieg Larsson

Several years ago, I watched both film adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and I loved them. It was only natural that at that point, I told myself I would read the book. As all bibliophiles like myself know our to-be-read piles are constantly growing, and …

Book Review: The Motion of Puppets by Keith Donohue

In Keith Donohue’s modern retelling of Orpheus and Eurydice, The Motion of Puppets, we’re introduced to a range of characters from a besotted husband and his missing wife, to an emotionally unstable puppet girl as the husband embarks on a journey to save his wife from eternity as a doll. For …
