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

Book Review: The Graveyard Apartment by Mariko Koike

I’ve spent the past few days buried up to my eyeballs in Mariko Koike’s The Graveyard Apartment, and to say I thoroughly enjoyed the book would be a lie; in fact, it failed to live up to my expectations and I am left wanting. Before I delve into my review, I …

Book Review: The Ill-Kept Oath by C. C. Aune

Whew, it has been a crazy few weeks. Someone remind me not to take eighteen hours of courses ever again, please? That said, I have finally, finally finished reading C. C. Aune’s debut novel, The Ill-Kept Oath and I hope she’s already tap-tapping away at a second book to follow. Set in …

Thoughts: American Horror Story Season 6 Episode 1

When it comes to Wednesday’s premiere of the latest season of  American Horror Story, the first thoughts that cross my mind are laden with expletives. Fortunately, I was able to reign in that overly-excited fangirl side of me — a task that, under most circumstances is fairly easy, but in …
