Haunted Curiosities


Long Story Short

Three nights ago I was looking at my to-finish-reading pile and I had a revelation. There's a reason these awesome, best-selling, indie, award-winning books have been collecting dust for the past seven years. I don't want to finish reading them. And it hurts my heart.

You know all those times that you settle in for a good scare, and the opening sequence informs you that the movie you're about to watch is based on a true story?
