The Haunting of Hill House: Review

Image result for the haunting of hill house

Hello Friend!

I will watch just about anything with a horror theme that comes out on Netflix. Movies, shows, anything! Okay…not just Netflix, anywhere. I love anything and everything horror. Even the bad ones that everyone hates.

I had plans on watching the Haunting of Hill House since I first heard about it. It was always in the plans. But then Mr. Stephen King (my favorite author of all times) decided to comment about how amazing this show was. So of course that made me move a little quicker to watch the show. It took me 3 days to watch all 10 episodes…but I could have easily done it in one day given better circumstances. Work gets in the way of so much stuff!

Let’s get down to business. What you are really here for. What did I think about The Haunting of Hill House?

FREAKING LOVED IT!

Okay okay. Let me talk about all the reasons I love this show. I actually have reasons to love this show and not just an over all “I just love it” excuse.

First, let me talk about the actors. Every child actor in this movie is phenomenal. It made me wonder if these kids were picked out of some cloning field where they just mass produce great child actors. Not a single one let me down with the believability of their fear. It made the show feel so much more real, like there was some bent neck lady standing behind me, watching me.

The adult actors…they were so fantastic. I loved the chemistry between them all, how much they felt like siblings. Not to mention the familiar faces. Carla Gugino who played the lead in Geralds Game, another Netflix Original. She was also on a TV series called Wayward Pines. As well as on Watchman.  Then we have Kate Siegel who played the lead in Hush, Netflix original. She is also the wife of Mike Flanagan who had his hands all over The Haunting of Hill House.

The camera work of this show was something of magic. Seriously, there had to have been magical creatures moving these cameras because it was so smooth. There was a ton of movement but not once did I worry about motion sickness. To go along with the great camera work I want to add the transitions! There are a ton of transitions from present day to the past and the transitions are so quick, smooth, and seemless. They were also very clear and not once did I wonder where in the story line I was at.

The Haunting of Hill House is all over the place. The timeline is not a straight line in either the past or present day. There is a lot of jumping around but it is done is such a way that you know exactly where you are in the story and what happened when. It was so great because you knew what was going on, but there were so many questions you were waiting for answers. It’s one of the greatest things about the show, it answered all the questions, but in it’s own time and it wasn’t stretched out to the point where you just couldn’t continue to watch because you got bored.

This show was actually scary! It gave me tingles at the back of my head, which happens when I am legitimately enjoying a horror movie. It doesn’t happen often anymore because things are just not as scary as they once were. Don’t get me wrong, I love horror and the stories, but they don’t scare me as much. This actually freaked me out a little bit. There was even a few jump scares that got me! One of the jump scares I didn’t even see coming and I loved it!

Now, it wasn’t all fun and games. There was one episode where things went on almost too long and I wanted to rush through it. Good news, this was on the very last episode where everything was being wrapped up and all questions answered. There was only one moment where I was like “Can this scene be over with?”

The question that arises at this point is, Will there be another season? I have discussed this with someone who thinks there shouldn’t be another season. But I think there should. There are things that could be explored from this point on. We could take a look more into the past of this haunted house. We could look into the future of what could happen or go wrong with this house. I realize that this show is based on a book and with the last episode is the end of the book, it has been wrapped up. (I need to read the book!) That doesn’t mean the story has to stop there. Now Mike Flanagan has so much to work with and he is free to do what he wants from this point on. It could be something amazing and I really would like to see a second season.

I would watch this show again and again. It may become something that I need to watch every year in October because it was fantastic and scary and I want more of it. For me it is added to the list with Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas. It has to be watched a million times. Not to mention that I have a weird feeling that every time I watch it, I will notice something new that I didn’t see before.

My suggestion to you, if you have not seen the show yet, go watch it. And pay close attention to it. Don’t look away for a second because you may miss something. There are a lot of little details thrown in that could easily be missed, which is something I absolutely love.

Have you watched The Haunting of Hill House? If so, what did you think about it? If not, do you plan on watching it? I think you should!

Until Next Time!

Let’s Talk: Nightmare on Elm Street 2 Freddys Revenge

Image result for Nightmare on Elm street 2

I have been going through all the old horror movies and checking them out again, because well…I have not seen most of them since I was a kid.  So while I remember loving them and almost being terrified of them, I didn’t exactly remember them.

So here I am watching all these horror movies and I have seen quite a few at this point. Pumpkinhead, Hellraiser 1, 2, and 3, The Shinning…and A nightmare on Elm Street.

I have enjoyed watching these great classics and it’s almost like watching them for the first time.

But!!

And this is a huge but!

Freddy’s revenge was…..

AWFUL!

Does anyone remember this movie? I think it should be wiped from our minds and thrown in the delete folder and the delete folder deleted. There were so many things wrong with this movie. Honestly, was it even a Freddy movie? It wouldn’t have been good if it had been a stand-alone movie and not part of a franchise.

Let’s look at this. Freddy could attack people in their dreams. But he is weak from the first movie where he basically had his a$$ handed to him. So…he attacks one guy who moves into Nancy’s old house. It could totally make sense that Freddy can only attack the people in the house where he was last defeated. I can go along with that.

Then it goes all wonky. Suddenly Freddy can possess Jesse and kill people in the real world instead of attacking them in his dreams. I have read the things that the idea is that Freddy is weak and this is how he gets stronger. But it doesn’t make sense. He is a dream demon basically. How can he be so weak he can’t attack people in their dreams, but he can possess someone, look like himself to them, and kill?

Also, the whole point of the first movie is that Freddy was attacking the kids of the adults who had a part in killing him. Jesse’s parents had nothing to do with it!

This movie was an embarrassment to the whole franchise. It completely throws out the whole concept of Freddy. The scary guy who attacks you in your dreams. It was ridiculous but I could still appreciate some of the special effects. People were really creative with special effects in the 80’s and I kind of miss it.

I need to get back to watching horror movies, but I have been a little distracted with things lately. There are some great shows going on at the moment too and I hope to touch on those soon this month.

So tell me, what is your favorite horror film? Old or new I want to know so I can watch them!

What did you think of Freddy’s Revenge?

Well…Hello

Hello Friends,

It has been a long time since I have been here. I will open WordPress and start to type something and then decided that I just wasn’t ready to come back. I tried to come back a few times and I wasn’t healed enough. It has now been a year and a month since my dad passed away. Things are getting back to normal for real this time. I am working a new job. We have caught up on our bills and we won’t lose the house. My dad is still a big hole missing in my life, but I am getting better. I am living again.

I got up one morning and I realized that I needed to get back to my life. I needed to get back to the dreams I once had and the things I used to do. It was time to get back to reading and writing. I haven’t completely stopped doing all the things, but I slowed down to the point where I would have been better to just not do the things. But I want to get back to it.

I thought there was no better time to come back then my favorite month of the year. Spooky month! I seriously enjoy the month of October. All my favorite things are around and it makes me happy. So, I start back my blogging journey this month!

Spooky month.png

Here are some things I have planned.

1. Watch at least 1 horror movie a day.
2. Read all the Goosebumps and fear street books I have. I have 16 of them.
3. Write 1 spooky short story a week.
4. Write everyday!

I am going to get back on this road, this journey to being something more than just a girl who lives in the south and works in retail. My ultimate goal in life is to make my way to book con. Become a published author. And inspire others to follow their own dreams. I have had enough time to sit in the dark and feel sorry for me. My dad wouldn’t be happy with me if I didn’t keep going after my dreams.

What are your plans for this month??

Movie Review: The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring 2

Year Released: 2016
Directors Name: James Wan
Lead Actors: Vera Farmiga | Patrick Wilson | Madison Wolfe
Production Company: New Line Cinema | Atomic Monster | Evergreen Media Group
Genre: Horror | Mystery | Thriller

Rating27-10

 

Storyline: In 1977, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren travel to London, England, where single mother Peggy Hodgson believes that something evil is in her home. When Peggy’s youngest daughter starts showing signs of demonic possession, Ed and Lorraine attempt to help the besieged girl, only to find themselves targeted by the malicious spirits.

Review

I can be very harsh in reviewing horror movies. I have seen so many and not many scare me anymore. I stopped looking for a movie that scared me and more of a horror movie that I enjoyed and felt I could watch again. I enjoyed the first Conjuring movie. I thought it was really good and I have seen it several times now.

The second one is going to be no different. I have actually found myself thinking of a movie and wanting to watch it again, only to realize the movie I am thinking about is The Conjuring 2 and I can’t really afford to go see that again at the moment.

As far as the storyline goes, it was well written. It kept me interested throughout the entire movie, trying to figure out what exactly was going on. At times it even had me believing it was about a hoax instead of a haunting. The storyline moves along fairly quick and I don’t recall finding myself bored at any moment in the movie.

There are a few jump scares that I thought were very well done. Of course, you can see them coming for the most part, but a few will still surprise you.

As far as scary goes, there is one character in this movie that I thought might actually fallow me into my dreams. And I promise it wasn’t the nun that you see in the previews.
Although, the nun character is rather sinister and creepy, we all have seen her in the commercials. Everyone knows she or rather, it, will be in the movie. The character that really got me is called the crooked man, and while the animation of him is 80’s style CGI the concept was spine tingling.

 

The actors were fantastic as always. I love Vera Farmiga in everything she has done and she is the perfect actress for Lorraine Warren. Madison Wolfe, who plays Janet Hodgson is such an amazing actress. While I have not seen her in other movies, I do look forward to seeing her career flourish.the conjuring 2

Final Thoughts: I do not feel that I wasted my money to see this movie. I thought it was fantastic, suspenseful, and an overall great horror movie. The last few minutes of the movie was so intense that I think I forgot how to breathe. It had me on the edge of my seat. That is what I look for in a movie. A story that will put me on the edge of my seat and capture my attention so completely, I forget I am only watching a movie.

Have you seen The Conjuring 2 yet?

Movie Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane

Producer: J.J. Abrams
Lead Actors: John Goodman | Mary Elizabeth Winstead | John Gallagher Jr.
Production Company: Paramount Pictures | Bad Robot | Spectrum Effects
Genre: Drama | Horror | Mystery

Rating29-10

Storyline (From IMBd): Soon after leaving her fiancé Michelle is involved in a car accident. She awakens to find herself sharing an underground bunker with Howard and Emmett. Has she been saved from an apocalyptical event as Howard & Emmett tell her or are there other motives for her being held against her will?

Review

I loved this movie. There was so much going on. First of all, the acting is fantastic. John Goodman was fantastic as always. I recognized Mary Winstead from Scott Pilgram v. The World and I think she did just as an amazing job in this movie as she did in her previous film. And of course John Gallagher Jr. played in the new movie Hush. I have not seen him in anything else, but what I have seen from him so far, I am a fan.

Michelle has run away from her life, for whatever reason. We have no idea where she is going or why she is leaving her fiancé. All we know is that she is upset and leaving town. Before she gets to where she is going, she finds herself in an accident. When she awakens she is chained to a wall, in what looks like a basement.

She soon finds out from Howard, the man who owns the bunker, that there has been a chemical attack and he claims he has saved her. He also tells her that the air is not safe so she cannot leave the bunker. Of course, like any normal person, Michelle questions it, even though there is another man, Emmett, trapped in the bunker with her. All she can do is try to trust this stranger that he is telling the truth, but he acts strange and she questions his true motives.

I thought this movie was very inventive and fresh. The female protagonist is not some helpless woman that settles in and lets things happen to her. She fights the entire time, wanting to know the truth, wanting to be free. I loved that she was so head strong and did not, for even one moment, take what Howard said as truth. My only problem was how she so quickly trusted Emmett.

**Spoilers**

You can see from early on that Howard is a little sick in the head. We learn about his daughter and suddenly we see that he is trying to replace the daughter that he lost in a divorce. Now the question is, did he run Michelle off the road on purpose because she reminded him of her daughter, or was it an accident like he said.

No one seems to mention or even notice that Howard disappears from time to time. My thoughts around this time were if he was disappearing above ground, or if he had a secret room he hid in. I just found it a little odd because he was so paranoid that something would happen between Michelle and Emmett, I don’ t see why he would have left them alone.

But it didn’t seem to matter, seeing as at the end he kills Emmett. This is towards the end of the movie and I was sure I had figured out the movie at this point. I was sure that there were no attacks and this guy was just crazy and trying to replace his daughter and Emmett was in on it, to make the story seem real. But then he kills Emmett. I was obviously confused as to what in the world was going on at this point.

Michelle finally gets out of the bunker and escapes with her homemade hazmat suit. She quickly discovers that the air is safe and at first glance all seems right with the world. At least until the alien space ship appears!

**Spoilers Over**

This movie had me guessing through the entire thing. I didn’t know what was real and what was fake. Just when I thought I had it figured out, I was thrown for a loop. The writers did a fantastic job with this storyline. It’s not often that I am so confused through the entire movie. The ending was something that could be a proper ending, but also leaving the movie open for something more. I do hope that there is more to this story to come. The movie was thrilling, intense, and pretty crazy. There wasn’t a dull moment with Howard’s explosive temper and Michelle’s constant questioning.

Book Review: Finders Keepers

Finders Keepers

Rating24 Nerd Girl Rating

Author: Stephen King
Release Date: June 2nd 2015
Series: Bill Hodges Trilogy
Genre: Horror/Mystery/Fiction
Pages: 448
Publisher: Scribner
Buy it : Amazon

 

First Line: “Wake up, genius.”

Blurb from Goodreads: “Wake up, genius.” So begins King’s instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn’t published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.

Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years.

Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever.

Review

 

The cover is as delightfully horrific as the first book in the series. It’s so perfect for the story behind it as well.

Compared to Mr. Mercedes, this book was not nearly as good. It started off too slow and I almost stopped reading (listening as I was listening to the audio book.) But I continued on because I wanted to be read for the third book. At the end of the day, this was a good book, as Stephen King doesn’t write a bad book.

In the heart of it this book is about a boy, Pete, whose family is going through a lot. His father was disabled by the Mercedes killer, and can’t find a job. His mother is a teacher and her salary has been cut. He and his sister try to ignore how much his parents fight, but they know what is going to happen if things don’t change.

Then, Pete finds a hidden treasure. A trunk full of money and old mole skin notebooks. He sends the money to his family anonymously but keeps the notebooks for himself. When more money is needed, Pete lets out the secret to a man that may be able to sell the notebooks, but trouble follows.

It’s also about a man who is so obsessed with a story that it leads him to kill the author for selling out. Actually, the story opens with Morris killing John Rothstein. He hides the money and the books until he can get away with it, without raising suspicion. But he doesn’t expect to land in a situation where the trunk of his treasures stays hidden for 30 years and a young boy finds them first.

I thought this book really was a fantastic book. It was a slow build up and could be a little annoying at the same time. The boring part I think was where Morris was sent to prison for a different crime. You pretty much sit the his cell with him and I was just bored with the prison life. Part of it aided to the story, but some of it just seemed out of place and useless information. I could also be a little impatient and wanted to know what was going to happen next.

The ending was actually a little heartbreaking. I won’t say anything except something important is lost in the end and it was just a bummer to have a happier ending for some people.

**Spoilers**

I just have to talk about this because it is the one thing that bugged me most about this book. If you have not read the book and don’t want to be spoiled, you have been warned!

When Pete decides to try and sell the mole skin notebooks, he is blackmailed, first by Andy, the book store owner, and then by Morris. Andy tries to blackmail him by saying Pete will be locked away because he stole some money. Morris tells Pete that Andy’s murder will be pinned on him because his fingerprints are in the office where Andy’s body lays.

I don’t know about you, but when I was 17 I was a little smarter than Pete. The money was found. Sure, he should have turned it in to the police, but when your family is in desperate need, you don’t always think about what you SHOULD do with money that is found. If Pete had stopped for just a minute to think about it, he would have known that neither Andy, nor Morris had anything against him. I think in the end it would have saved his entire family a lot of trouble.

Yes, I am ranting a little bit because this whole issue just bugged me to no end. It annoyed me that Pete was so ignorant through the whole thing.

**Spoiler/Rant over**

 

By the end, I felt like this book was just a filler to build up to the last book. Maybe something comes back up in the last book that happened in this book. It was an okay read, but let’s face it, we just want to know what is going to happen next with Brady Hartsfield.

Movie Review: Zoombies

Zoombies

Rating24-10

Year Released: 2016
Directors Name: Glenn Miller
Production Company: Asylum
Lead Actors: Ione Butler/Andrew Asper/LaLa Nestor/Kim Bielsen
Genre: Action/Horror/Sci-Fi

 

Movie Storyline(From IMBd): When a strange virus quickly spreads through a safari park and turns all the zoo animals undead, those left in the park must stop the creatures before they escape and zombify the whole city.

ReviewReview:

Zoombies was just recently released on Netflix. One night while watching the Talking Dead, Chris Hardwick had mentioned something about the movie and I was intrugied. I couldn’t find it when it was mentioned, but just came across it on Netflix. I even convinced my parents to watch it with me.

If you know anything about me, you know that I love horror movies…even the cheap ones that everyone hates. Which seems to be the case with this movie as well. There is a lot of hate geared towards it because in the sense of horror…its ‘horror’ible. The special effects are not that great, the acting is just… sad, and there is nothing believable about it.

The best part is where the little girl kicks the crap out of a few crazy Koalas.

Now if you look at this in a comedy sense, it was genius. The first part of the hilarity begins with the bus of college students and their bad attitudes about their internships. The second would be when everyone goes looking for the doctor and opens the door when he is obviously telling them to leave the door closed.

Again, the best part is when the little girl kicks the crap out of the rabid Koalas.

The whole movie is predictable, hilarious, and if you really think about infected zoo animals out to kill all humans, it can be a little scary. Just think about it.

Over all though, I think this would be a great movie to sit around with friends and watch. You know, you and your friends are the kind of people that like to sit around and poke fun at all the things wrong with a movie. Seriously, I would suggest this for a movie night with my friends. It’s okay to sit and watch a horrible horror movie with friends, it keeps things light and fun.

What I loved: Do I really need to cover this again? The little girl killing zombie Koalas. Also, it gave me a good laugh.

What I hated: There was one character that I could not stand and I wanted her to be the first to die, but she survived way to long! The ending sucked as well. **Spoiler** Only 4 people make it out, but in no way did those 4 people destroy all the zombie animals. So there is a zoo full of rabid animals that really no one has the power to control. In my opinion the movie should have ended with a “A year later” prompt and all humans are dead and the animals have taken over the planet. It’s the only way to end a movie like this.

Another thing that I hated about this movie is that the monkeys that started spreading the virus only had to get close to the other animals to spread it. They didn’t have to bite them…just breath the same air. Which means the virus should have spread through the zoo much quicker. Just because they blow up the bird aviary that means the virus can’t spread? What about the animals that come up to the fence?

Hello Friends! Happy Monday. I hope it’s not too terrible for you all. Especially since most of you have the day off.

This week I am still listening to Finders Keepers by Stephen King.

I am about 2 hours from finishing this book and I can’t wait to get it finished.

I am currently reading the Spiderwick Chronicles by Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi. I’m just on the second book The Seeing Stone.

519048

Now, the first book I read in an hour. Sure it could have been faster if I had been focusing, but my focus is a little shot at the moment. I love that these books are so short and quick to read. And they are adorable and fun. I love anything to do with fairies, so I knew I had to finally read this series. I bought the collection in paperback but now that I know I am going to love them I want to get them in hardback as well.

I am also reading The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter

I have actually set this book on the back burner. I have enjoyed reading it, but other things have grabbed my attention so I have not been reading this book as much. I might have peeked through the story a little bit and was a little disappointed in some things that I saw, but I am going to read this book and get through it. If I don’t care for it, I will move on and not bother with the rest of the series. Which, may happen. I love Gena Showlater’s YA novels, so I was hoping to love her adult novels too. I haven’t lost hope yet though.

Lastly, I am reading Figment by Cameron Jace. The second book in the Insanity series.

15698596

I loved the first book and read it back in October, so it has been a while. But I remember most of it, may have forgotten a few details,  but for the most part I am up to speed. The second book, I just started reading it yesterday, is extremely interesting from the start. I hope to push through this one and the rest of the series by the end of next month, which would be fantastic! I also love anything to do with Alice and Wonderland…You put Wonderland on something and I will read it, buy it, collect it, cherish it, stalk it…yep, mild obsession.

Tell me, what are you reading?

Book Review: Dead Set

Dead Set by Richard Kadrey

Blurb from Goodreads: After her father’s funeral, Zoe and her mother moved to the Big City to start over. But life’s not so easy, the money is tight, and a new school brings trials. Fortunately, she has an escape: her dreams. A world of freedom and solace removed from the loneliness and anxieties of real life, Zoe’s dreamscape offers another, more precious, gift: It is the only place where she can spend time with her closest companion — her lost brother Valentine.

Yet something is very wrong. An unfamiliar — and uninvited — presence has entered her private realm to threaten Zoe and Valentine, a disturbing turn of events that is compounded by an impossible discovery. A chance encounter at a used record store where the grooves of the vinyl discs hold not music, but lost souls, has opened up a portal to the world of the restless dead. Now, the shop’s strange proprietor is offering Zoe the chance to commune with the father whose passing took a piece of her heart. The price? A lock of hair. Then a tooth. Then…

How far into this eerie world will Zoe go to discover what she truly needs? And once she does, will there be enough left of her to come back?

 Review

First Line: For three straight nights Zoe dreamed about the black dog.

The  cover is what caught my attention in the first place. It reminded me of Wizard of Oz as does the story itself. 

Zoe is your typical teenager. Her father has passed away and his death has forced Zoe and her mother to move out of a nice home and into a small apartment in a not so safe town. New school, new town, new life, and Zoe and her mom are not getting along.

I loved this book for its simplicity of the beginning. There is a tragic beginning, but it is down played by the fact that there is also a new town and the teenager, Zoe, is just mad at the world. She finds a place that calls to her, a place that she thinks will help her find some piece and it is in a off the wall music store that sells records. But there is a catch, because some of these records hold the souls of the dead and one of them happens to be Zoe’s father.

This leads Zoe into an adventure and the discovery of a world beyond the living.

I started reading this book thinking that the story was going to go one way, and getting mad that I had already figured out part of it. Then the story took a completely different route and threw me off. It was fantastic and fresh.

Zoe was such a fabulous character. I even found myself loving her “dream” brother, Valentine. He was such a unique and loving character and always had Zoe’s best interest in mind. There were a few times that I thought he may actually be a spy or someone who would turn on her, but that was just because so many stories seem to take that route now days.

The world beyond the living was so twisted and creepy and it gave my horror loving mind something to chew on.

The only reason I gave this book a 3 star review is because I did become bored with the story a little bit and at times found it hard to continue reading, yet I loved so much about this. I am actually a little confused about my feelings for the story. It was different and I couldn’t figure out exactly what was going to happen, which is rare in YA novels. Also, there was no instant love/romance going on. This is simply a girl trying to figure out life after the death of her father and trying to do the right thing.

It really does give me a feel of Wizard of Oz. But I don’t want to go into too much detail as to how it is similar in case I ruin the story for someone.

Despite my rating, I would recommend this to friends because it was such a different story and it did keep my interest.

 As a little P.S. Here…if you love all the nerdy things of the world, you love the fact that Wil Wheaton even read and reviewed this book. Not the reason I bought or read the book, but it made me giggle in delight.

Hello Friends! Happy Monday…or not. 🙂

This week is going to be crazy for me so I probably won’t be reading as much as I usually do, but I still have a few books sitting on my bedside table at the moment.

So let’s get to it.

I am still listening to Finders Keepers by Stephen King

22453035

This book is just so disturbing and some mornings on my way to work I have skipped listening to it just because the voice actor for the book can get annoying. Just some characters that he reads. He is a lovely voice actor, but some mornings I just can’t take it.

I am reading a middle grade book. Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver.

10425811

So far it has been a very interesting story and the cover is just so gorgeous!

I’m also reading The Darkest Night by Gena Sowalter

476543

I was afraid I wouldn’t like Gena Showalter’s adult novels. I love her YA books. My fear was short lived as soon as I read the first chapter. I am, so far, in love with this book!

Aerisia: Land Beyond the Sunset by Sarah Ashwood

21928224

This book has been so fantastic so far. Some days I just don’t have enough time to read enough of this book to satisfy my curiosity. As soon as I have some time I am probably going to sit down and do nothing but finish this book.

That is all I have this week. I know, I am reading too many books at once, but I am keeping the stories separate and they are all so different. I would have been done with at least one if I wasn’t working such strange hours.
