Friday Feels- August 23, 2019

Happy Friday, worms! This week I wanted to ramble for a second about Dear Laura by Gemma Amor. Our fearless leader and everyone’s horror mother figure, Sadie aka @mother.horror told me I needed this book and then basically forced me to read it immediately so we could talk about it. She hasn’t let me down with a book recommendation yet and this was no exception. I received the book, started and finished reading it in just about two and a half hours, the entire time messaging Sadie in all caps about different parts of the...

August 2019 Horror Releases

Just speaking from almost 4 years of experience on #bookstagram (dedicated bookish accounts and posts on the social app, Instagram) readers are starting to collect books for their Fall/Winter TBR.

Make a Decent Library with Only Books Found at the Goodwill

I rarely buy books at the Goodwill anymore (I have plenty of books to keep me busy) but if I was low on cash or had a small book budget, the Goodwill can actually be a great resource for finding good, cheap books. I was there yesterday with my daughter and her friend and this is what someone should buy if they had zero books and needed to build up their personal library:

Nick Horby is a great writer. HOW TO BE GOOD is funny and emotional. I loved this one. My favorite, of course, is HIGH FIDELITY, but this...

Thoughts on my first childhood horror (suggestion from author Alan Baxter)

One Halloween, my dad took me and my sisters out trick-or-treating around town. There was one house that always decorated for Halloween and they went all out. My sisters were too scared to go up the small walkway to the porch. We all stood at the entrance and really scoped the place out to see if the candy would be worth the trouble of being scared.

The walkway was surrounded by a makeshift...
