Book Review: Nights of the Living Dead: An Anthology

I came across this book at the library and was interested for two reasons. First, I went through a phase of obsessing about zombies (mostly in video games and movies, but also the occasional book). Second, this is a collection of short stories picked by Jonathan Maberry and George A. Romero, the filmmaker for Night … Continue reading Book Review: Nights of the Living Dead: An Anthology

Book Review: The Witches’ Tree by M.C. Beaton

If you’ve followed my blog for some time, you’ll probably know what a massive fan I am of cozy mysteries. Even if they are repetitive and similar, I love them all. Until I read this one… A little background on this series. This is Book #28 of the Agatha Raisin mystery series, and one I’ve … Continue reading Book Review: The Witches’ Tree by M.C. Beaton

Book Review: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

This is the first book I read for Spooktober, and I thought it would be fun to read a classic horror. I’m surprised at how I never thought to read this book before, as I know the idea so well. Whether I’ve seen it featured in The Pagemaster (great movie) or The League of Extraordinary … Continue reading Book Review: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Book Review: My Girls: My Lifetime With Carrie and Debbie by Todd Fisher

I grew up a massive fan of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher. From Star Wars to Halloween Town to The Unsinkable Molly Brown to Singing in the Rain, this mother and daughter duo were a big part of my childhood. And in 2016 when they both died a mere two days apart, I was sad … Continue reading Book Review: My Girls: My Lifetime With Carrie and Debbie by Todd Fisher

Book Review: The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson (a.k.a., another Rapunzel Retelling)

I read this book for two reasons. First, the cover is absolutely beautiful. Second, I am easily convinced to read any fairytale retelling even though more often than not I am disappointed with them. This book was…not at all what I was expecting…but I’ll get into that in a minute. Release: November, 2015 Synopsis: The … Continue reading Book Review: The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson (a.k.a., another Rapunzel Retelling)

Book Review: Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix

I know this entire week has been dedicated to book reviews, but I have a feeling that once in a while I’ll have to do more book reviews just to catch up with my reading. But don’t worry, this is the last book review until next Wednesday! After that, I can’t promise anything. This book … Continue reading Book Review: Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix

Indie Book Review The Verona Exchange by Lauren B. Grossman and Bernard Jaroslaw

For the handful of people who were following my blog way back in March of this year, you may (but most probably not) remember that I did a review for The Golden Peacock by Lauren Grossman. If you know nothing of it, I advise you read that review first, since this book is its sequel. … Continue reading Indie Book Review The Verona Exchange by Lauren B. Grossman and Bernard Jaroslaw

Book Review: The Lost Continent of Mu by James Churchward

No, I am not a conspiracy nut. Yes, I may or may not have been highly amused by this book. And yes, this book was certainly research for a book I’m writing and definitely not me believing in this stuff. Okay, so I feel as if this book needs a little bit of background information … Continue reading Book Review: The Lost Continent of Mu by James Churchward

Book Review: Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding by Rhys Bowen

For reference, this is Book #12 of Her Royal Spyness cozy historical mystery series, and perhaps my favorite mystery series of all time. Rhys Bowen is certainly my favorite mystery writer (at the very least fighting for first with Dorothy Sayers). Obviously, I would recommend reading this series from the beginning and because of this, … Continue reading Book Review: Four Funerals and Maybe a Wedding by Rhys Bowen

Book Review: The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters

A couple months ago, I was catching up on trailers for all the newest movies coming out and I came upon a movie called The Little Stranger, starring Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, and Will Poulter. The plot looked really interesting, so I searched it on Wikipedia, only to find it was based on a book…this … Continue reading Book Review: The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters
