Creature Feature: Aliens, Do you believe?

Do you believe in aliens? If you are any part human, you have at least wondered about the existence of extraterrestrial life. Maybe your idea of alien lifeforms are cute and cuddly, ala E.T. Or perhaps something more along the lines of the monster from the movie Alien. Maybe you gravitate toward the idea that other planetary life might simply consist of plants and micro-organisms. Whatever the case, the possibility that a being who is not human could occupy the universe is both intriguing and chilling. This is what makes alien books, movies, and TV shows so inter[...]


Find New Haunting Reads

If you don't have an account, I urge you to get one NOW. It's supereasy. You can even sign up with your[...]

YA Horror Novels: Part One

If there's one thing most people can agree on about YA & NA literature, is that horror is not a largely represented category. So I wanted to make the first of many lists showing young adult and new adult horror. There are actually several awesome lists of YA horror on Goodreads, and you can find them here: Popular YA Horror, Scariest YA Book, and Young Adult Horror. Today I will focus on young adult horror literature and then next time, we'll look at some new adult horror. Behold the list in all it's horrific glory! Young Adult Horror Anna Dressed in Blood[...]
