My Absolute Most Favouritest Monsters

Hi friends! 👋🏻 I may have taken an accidental short break thanks to my ever changing sleep schedule, but I am back in action and ready to act like nothing ever happened! It is no secret that I love my monsters. I like evil monsters, good monsters, neutral monsters, scary monsters, cuddly monsters, monsters who need a hug, monsters that will probably tear your ears out if you try to go near it, and monsters that are so giant that they would crush your house under their feet. Monsters are great is what I’m getting at here, so I decided that…

Why I Don’t Read YA Horror (very often)

When I was putting together my TBR for this month something I noticed was that I have only one YA book and the others are all adult books or classics. This got me wondering why exactly it is that I don’t read more YA horror books and tend to gravitate more towards horror for adults. In my very personal opinion, YA horror could do a lot better so that it can stand shoulder to shoulder with adult horror. There are even cases of middle grade horror being better that YA, so what could be improved on? Let’s talk about that,…

My Bookish Horror Movie Watchlist

One thing that I am always on the lookout for is horror movies that are not based on books by Stephen King. Not to knock Stephen King, I’m sure he’s a fine writer whose books I’ve never finished, but it is far too easy to just fall back to his works and movies based on them when there are so many other books out there that have been made into movies. Some of those are classics and some are a little more obscure, but it’s always great to find horror by writers who aren’t Stephen King. My movie watchlist is…

It’s Monster Mash Time: Spooky Month is back!

Hi friends! 👋🏻 Today is a very exciting day because I’m bringing my annual Spooky Month to Monstrumology! If you’re new to me, Spooky Month is a month-long event that I’ve done on-and-off since 2012. In October I dedicate all of my posts, reading, and watching habits to all things spooky. What do I mean by spooky? Not just horror! As well as horror I will be talking about thrillers, supernatural stories, Gothic, and my beloved monsters. I don’t do a linky for this event as it’s more for me to share my love of dark things but if you…

(Part of) My Autumn 2020 TBR

Hi friends! 👋🏻 Today is the real first day of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere so I’m excited to share a part of my autumn TBR with you all! I say “part” of my TBR because I have two themed TBRs in autumn and I tend to go a little overboard. In October I read more horror, paranormal, and thriller books, while in November I read sci-fi. This part of my TBR is mostly my October TBR because there are a lot of things that I want to read in October and since this is Top 10 Tuesday, I’ve limited myself to…
