How I Read Seasonally

Hello again! 👋🏻 It’s been a while since I last posted and I do want to get back into posting regularly, so hopefully this is the first in a lot of regular Saturday posts. For almost the whole time I’ve been blogging, I’ve been a seasonal reader rather than a mood reader. There’s nothing wrong with being a mood reader, especially since most book bloggers are mood readers, but I’ve just never been that way. I’ve always had a very methodical way of reading that has seen different phases (when I was in school, I read two chapters before bed,…

15 Weird, Wild and Shocking Movies to Watch After ‘Saltburn’ and ‘Poor Things’

Hello again! 👋🏻 Recently two movies have been causing a bit of a commotion and getting a bit of a reputation for being quite ‘shocking’: Saltburn and Poor Things. I watched both of them to see how they fared when compared to things that I usually watch, and my takeaway was that they’re not that shocking.  Actually, I didn’t like Saltburn. I thought it was a boring drama about rich people being leeched on by ‘poor’ people with nudity and couple of weird sex things that aren’t that scandalous. Poor Things was a lot better because it was funny, had characters that were interesting, but I still…

My Favourite Sci-Fi Horrors

Hi crew! 👋🏻 If you couldn’t tell, my two favourite genres are sci-fi and horror, so when the two are combined, I’m always going to be interested. Picking a list of my favourites was oddly easy for movies, but a lot harder for books. It seems that I need to seek out sci-fi horror books more often to see what books are out there. Personally, I think that sci-fi and horror make for a good combination because what’s scarier that what we don’t know? And science is all about finding out things we don’t know, whether that’s out in space…

My Sci-Fi Month TBR

Hi crew! 👋🏻 November is Sci-Fi Month and time for me to devote my reading and watching habits to the genre. I didn’t participate last year due to being very busy with assignments and whatnot, but that’s all behind me now so I have time to come back to blogging! I didn’t go for a particular theme with this year’s TBR, but rather books that I’ve been meaning to read for a long time or suit my current goals of having more diverse reading habits, whether that’s intentional or not. i am legend by richard matheson Naturally, I’m still in the horror…

Asian Horror on My TBR and Watchlist

Hi ghouls, long time so see! 👋🏻 I am always looking for ways to diversify my reading and watching habits, especially when it comes to horror. Different cultures have different things that they find scary and it’s always fascinating to learn about past and present social issues that influence stories as well as folklore and mythology. Originally, this post was just about Japanese horror but I decided to branch out and look for horror from all over Asia and from Asian diaspora people all over the world. Asia’s a big place with a huge amount of different cultures so it’s…
