Thanks for checking out my blog! Click Here for my Latest Posts
I started this blog to give myself the opportunity and outlet to share my thoughts and opinions for anyone interested enough to read them. I plan to write reviews of the books I’ve been reading, discuss films I’ve watching, and have the odd interlude to showcase my current book subscriptions.
My main focus will be my first love, which is Horror.
I plan on reviewing horror books (old, current and upcoming) and try to present a mix of sub-genres from the psychological, to the gory, to the weird, and everything in between.
My plan is to get more involved with Netgalley and other sites so that I’m able to get opportunities to read ARCs of upcoming releases and help generate hype for new and exciting horror novels.

5* – I loved it/It went beyond my expectations/Strong or excellent writing/Good story
I also want to dust off my old research skills from when I was a literature student and present a series of essay (or extended reviews) on the sub-genre Splatterpunk and how I feel it has evolved from gothic literature (specifically male gothic). Some links below.
A little about me…
Not to be taken literary. I’m an ex-literature-student, and studied a BA in English & Creative Writing and an MA in Gothic Studies. I’m a wannabe-writer and have been lucky enough to have a small selection of my prose and poetry published in anthologies. A feminist-attempter, I strive for equality for all and I love to read theories on gender and sexuality. Book-Eater – I adore books, I am constantly reading them, buying them, and borrowing them (from libraries and friends). Horror-buff – anything and everything, whether it goes bump, splat or screams in the night.
Oh, and I have pet rats and I have done for years. I think they’re awesome animals and make amazing pets.

I’m able to receive physical books (hardbacks and paperbacks) or ebooks and I’m happy to read most genres, but I am more partial to:
- YA Fiction
