Book Review: I Am Not A Serial Killer by Dan Wells

TLDR: I Am Not a Serial Killer is amazing and I would probably sell organs to get the rest of the books in the series, if there was a short supply. Long version: The name Dan Wells kept popping up on all of the Goodreads lists that I searched. It's usually of the dark variety, such as murder or serial killers, etc. I had skimmed a few reviews of I Am Not a Serial Killer for about ten seconds and many of them weren't positive. There didn't seem to be any complaints about his writing or pacing or storyline. Actually, people seemed to sing his writing praises. Mos[...]


The Killer in Me

I have always had a deep fascination with serial killers. So let me stop you right now and tell you that if you have any book recommendations for me based off this information, to go straight to the comments and tell me what to read. I devour anything involving them, mainly non-fiction, but that’s because there used to not be a ton of serial killer books in the young adult category. In fact, we've talked about serial killers on this blog too, one of my favorites being the post on the true story of HH Holmes and the Murder Castle (which is terrible and awful and[...]


Halloween Murder: The True Story of The Candy Man

I love Halloween. And thanks to member Erica's genius brain, we're celebrating the build-up to Halfoween, the halfway point to Halloween this year. Faith made these awesome banners for Halfoween and I'm in love. I picture little Dracula bunnies with fangs, hopping around among happy Easter eggs.   Today's story is not a happy one but a true one nonetheless, about a horrific murder that took place on Halloween night in 1974. This story is the cause of many urban legends, parental fears and movie inspirations, to this day. This is the true story of The Ca[...]


Slasher Week: Females are Strong as Hell

Hello Kittens,   Happy Slasher Week!! Like my fellow bloggers, I'm a giant fan of slasher horror. I grew up hiding underneath my blankets, thinking the soft cotton would guard me from Freddy's claws. I know that if you're afraid of something in your house, you run outside...not upstairs. While I was terrified of these killers, I respected them. As I grew up, I developed a fondness for a certain type of crazed killer. Females. Nothing gave me the chills quite like a kind, motherly type cutting someone's throat. So, in honor of Slasher Week, I give you my[...]


Happy Slasher Week + My Favorite Slasher Revealed

Happy Slasher Week!!!                   Wait, that sounds weird when I say it out loud. *shrug* Happy slasher week! As most of you know, slasher horror is one of my favorite kinds of horror. Growing up, I absolutely loved Michael Myers, Jason, Freddy Krueger, and everything in between. Cabin in the Woods was A-MAZ-ING. Scream is still one of my go-to favorite movies of all time. Our love for the slasher genre is what led to Brian and I writing our book together. What is it about slasher books and slash[...]
