📑 Review: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo 🌹

Synopsis: "Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns. Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price. Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love." - From Goodreads Rating: 🐲🐲🐲🐲🐲/5 Review: At a certain point, I think someone is going to call me out on repeating myself but some things bear (bare?

🎬 Teaser Trailer Tuesday! Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Teaser Trailer Tuesday is a new Book Blog Meme/Tag that we're starting at JAF Ink where one of our illustrious members posts a short and enticing review of a book they've read and recommend (or don't recommend, it all depends), without giving too many details/plot points away.

Rating: 🐲🐲🐲🐲.5/5 A of JAF's Tempting Tease: In its most simplistic terms, I'd describe Nevernight as a book centred on a Hogwarts-like assassins school for the Arya Starks of the world (mostly) set in a post-Caesar era Rome-influenced fantasy world.

📑 Review: The Grip of It by Jac Jemc 🏠

Synopsis: "Julie and James settle into a house in a small town outside the city where they met. The move—prompted by James’s penchant for gambling, his inability to keep his impulses in check—is quick and seamless; both Julie and James are happy to leave behind their usual haunts and start afresh. But this house, which sits between ocean and forest, has plans for the unsuspecting couple. [...]Written in creepy, potent prose, The Grip of It is an enthralling, psychologically intense novel that deals in questions of home: how we make it and how it in turn makes us, mapping itself onto bodies and the relationships we cherish." - From Goodreads (edited slightly so as to not give too much away) R

October Horror Movie Marathon: Part 1 🎃

It is the second year that I decide to embark on this ridiculous movie marathon, and, honestly, I can't complain. My eyes have already gotten used to the gore, screams and ectoplasm and its only been 13 days of October. But this time, I will share with you a brief review on each one of my daily doses of the macabre. Here we go! Day 1: Hocus Pocus - 3 / 5 Bette Midler, what else can I say? She owns the screen. Even as an ugly witch, her presence just made my day. This movie kept its promise as a Disney production. In the ranks of Jumanji and Matilda, I think Hocus Pocus is more than just a comedy horror. It is our childhood. All the Disney channel kids out there, can I get a hell yeah? Day 2:
