Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – Book Review

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia is one of the best books I've ever read. Seriously, this inter-text woven with gothic lore, fantasy hijinks, a dash of romance, and riveting plot twists make for an excellent book. I haven't binged a book this hard in a while! I was skeptical at first about this book because… Continue reading Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – Book Review

Fazbear Frights #1: Into the Pit by Scott Cawthon Book Review

Welcome to a world of middle-grade horror inspired by everyone's favourite animatronic pizza parlour. Five Nights at Freddy's is a staple in indie horror (and now mainstream horror as well), that of course they decided to open up their lore-filled world into the land of literature. We saw the introduction of FNAF into our YA… Continue reading Fazbear Frights #1: Into the Pit by Scott Cawthon Book Review

#BookReview The Cemetery Boys by Z Brewer

Z Brewer has always been one of my faves. Back in my high school days I binged Vladimir Todd over and over. I distinctly remember going to Borders (RIP Borders) and requesting a great YA read that would keep me hooked. They presented me with Vladimir Todd and instantly I was in love. Z Brewer's… Continue reading #BookReview The Cemetery Boys by Z Brewer

#BookReview His Name Was Zach by Peter Martuneac

His Name Was Zach by Peter Martuneac is a thrilling and horrific zombie novel. In the last year or so I've been reading more zombie books. It's kind of amusing because I'm not the biggest zombie apocalypse fan, yet I just kept picking them up. People lent me zombie books, I accidentally stumbled upon them… Continue reading #BookReview His Name Was Zach by Peter Martuneac

#BookReview Blood Rain by Rajeev Singh

Blood Rain by Rajeev Singh is another dip into erotic horror that will steal the spotlight. Erotic horror is one of those criss-cross genres. It's creepy yet sexual (as the name implies) but hits in such a strange way. I don't know whether to be scared, horrified or shocked. A group of five get isolated… Continue reading #BookReview Blood Rain by Rajeev Singh

#BookReview Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

One of my life long reading goals is to pick up more classics, and since I am ALWAYS in a Halloween mood I figured Frankenstein would be right up my alleyway. But let me set the record straight, Hollywood has done Mary Shelley some dirty. This book was NOTHING like what Hollywood told me, and… Continue reading #BookReview Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

This sequel is darker, more twisted and absolutely brutal! Yet again, we follow Chris in his new vampire life -… Continue reading #BookReview NYV: Goth by K.D. McQuain
