My First Horror Manga

Venus in the Blind Spot By: Junji Ito My first horror manga! Honestly I think this might be my favorite manga yet. Of all the Junji Ito options I had to start with this one because I find the cover art so striking and that turned out to be a really good approximation of what's... Continue Reading →

The Diviners and the King

The King of Crows By: Libba Bray With this book I've finished five series this year! Which considering how the rest of the year (crap) is going I'm taking that as reading win.

Run away! But doesn't really leave an impact. And the stuff that gets under your skin leaves you unsettled and... Continue Reading →

Follow Me into this Dark & Creepy Cave

Especially a cavern that I believe the government concealed discovery of the first time around... nope. And maybe if I did one day strangely get that... Continue Reading →

Things You Learn on a Reread

I read The Tommyknockers for the first time when I was a kid (probably 12 or so) and it's stayed with me... Continue Reading →
