Reading Wrap-up October, 2018

I can't believe Spooktober has ended, and NaNoWriMo is in full swing. I usually do this wrap-up at the end of the month, but I was just too busy with other posts. So you're getting it a few days late, but as I always say, better late than never. This last month I read five … Continue reading Reading Wrap-up October, 2018

Book Review: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

We are nearing Halloween and for the final book I read this month, I thought it would be nice to finish with a classic horror.

My Favorite Halloween Songs

No October would be complete without listening to some Spooktober-themed music. So I compiled a short list of the songs that I often set on repeat during this month!

Don't Fear The Reaper (The Spiritual Machines) This song is from … Continue reading My Favorite Halloween Songs

Unique Places to Set a Horror Story

If you’ve read and watched as many horror stories as I have, you’ll know that creators love to set their plots around really creepy places, like haunted houses and asylums.
