Is There Something Wrong With Me…

…or are all of my friends faking the funk?   Spoiler: There is nothing wrong with me and all my friends are fucking liars.     But let me tell you how I came to that conclusion.   Let me give you some background.  So one of my…I wanna say best friends, but we’ve really grown apart…

Review: The Blackstone Chronicles, Part 2: Twist Of Fate: The Locket

Review: Re-read.   Things continue to go bad within the town of Blackstone.  The local family-run, independent bank is in the midst of an audit, which has put a halt on the renovation of the old asylum into a shopping center.  Which the town desperately needs.  Jules Hartwick, who’s family had opened a century ago,…

Yucky Day

Ever have one of those days where you just don’t feel right?  That’s today.  It stared last night. I kept waking up just feeling icky.  Nothing specific, just feeling gross.  It followed me into the morning, and now the afternoon.   I’m trying to complete a few household chores, but I think I’m just going…

Review: The Blackstone Chronicles, Part 1: An Eye For An Eye

Review: This is a re-read for me. I read the original serial novels as they were published and felt the need to revisit them. Creepy. Creepy. Creepy. Ugh I love John Saul’s writing so much! Strange things are afoot in the town of Blackstone. The Blackstone Asylum, which has stood at the top of the…

Reading progress update: I’ve read 4 out of 82 pages.

This is a re-read for me.  I read each of the serial novels as they were released.  I still have my original copies.  While I remember enjoying the series, that’s all I can really remember.  Halloween Bingo was a good excuse to re-read the entire series.

Review: Slade House

Review: Wow!  This was a pretty creepy and twisted tale.  This book was beautifully written and very interesting.  The whole time I read it, Hotel California was playing on a loop inside my head. But what to say about it?  It’s kinda of the age-old tale of a man being too stupid or stubborn–or both–…

Review: Odd Thomas

Review: Let me preface my review by saying that I saw the movie a few years ago and enjoyed it very much, so I fully expected to enjoy the book.  And I did.  However, I couldn’t stop picturing Anton Yelchin as Odd and it made me very sad.  That being said, the movie was a pretty…
