A few weeks ago I was introduced to the dark imagination of Nick Cutter with The Deep, a novel full of horrors more disturbing in nature than expected. I thought that was bad enough; then I picked up a previous novel of his, and I learned just how far he really was willing to go […]Read more "Off The Shelf: The Troop"
No, The Mime Order is not a book about the history of the art of white-faced comedy based in controlled body movement, but the sequel to The Bone Season. Try not to hold your disappointment against it.Read more "Book Review: The Mime Order (The Bone Season Book 2) by Samantha Shannon"
Let’s play a game of “Would You Rather”: Would you rather live in space or at the bottom of the ocean? Don’t ask me why, but I’ve thought about this A LOT, and after weighing the cons of all options, I decided the sea isn’t for me because of the possibility of waking up to […]Read more "Book Review: The Deep by Nick Cutter"

But when it comes to Veronica Mars, I am pretty much willing to take what I can get to stay with the title character.Read more "Book Review: Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas & Jennifer Graham"
If you’re like me, then you are sick and tired of every new YA novel being compared to The Hunger Games. It’s not like Suzanne Collins invented the genre! But I’m gonna say it, as much as I don’t want to: Red Rising could really be the next Hunger Games.Read more "Book Review: Red Rising by Pierce Brown"
Let’s face it: The Fog and The Mist weren’t the best movies (I still need to read Stephen King’s original novel of the latter before writing it off completely), but that’s not to say the premises didn’t have potential. Go play Alan Wake and you’ll understand. I was hoping Snowblind would create an experience more […]Read more "Book Review: Snowblind by Christopher Golden"
Lauren: If you’ve been keeping track of my reading habits (excluding comics), then you’ll be well aware that I have been going through a bit of a rough patch when it comes to enjoying my reading choices. With that in mind, I decided to go back to the last book I enjoyed, Stephen King’s Doctor […]Read more "Book Club in Session: NOS4A2 by Joe Hill"
How the heck do you write a sequel to The Shining? Is some other family going to be haunted within the walls of a new hotel that was built on the haunted grounds of The Overlook? Because that’s how horror sequels usually go.Read more "Book Review: Doctor Sleep by Stephen King"
