Why I Prefer Soft Sci-Fi

In every genre, there will always be a subgenre that we just won’t like and will prefer others over it. In horror, I hate found footage but I love supernatural. And in sci-fi, I definitely refer soft sci-fi over hard sci-fi. There’s nothing objectively wrong with hard sci-fi and it has its fans, but it’s just not for me. Hard sci-fi is a division of science fiction that focuses on what is called the hard sciences. Those are STEM subjects like maths, physics, chemistry, biology, astronomy, and other sciences that are based on objective facts. Pretty much what you mind…

My Sci-Fi Month TBR (aka the rest of my autumn TBR)

Happy November, friends! Sci-Fi Month officially started on Sunday but I took a couple of days to blog hop since I don’t post on Sundays or Mondays so today I am here to share my TBR for this month! Instead of buying new books, I decided to focus more on reading books that I already own since I am still planning to purge my bookshelves at some point. Also, my order of Supernova hasn’t arrived yet so I’ll save it for later. The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells I am a firm believer that a nice special physical copy can make…

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!

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…
