Suspicion Review

Mysterious. Magnificent. Creepy. Welcome to Rockford Manor.

"There's something hidden in the Maze." Seventeen-year-old Imogen has never forgotten the last words her father said to her seven years ago, before the blazing fire that consumed him, her mother, and the gardens of her family's English country manor.

Haunted by her parents' deaths, Imogen moves to New York City with her new guardians. But when a letter arrives with the news of her cousin's untimely death, revealing that Imogen is now the only heir left to run the estate, she returns to England and warily accepts her role as duchess.

All is not as it seems at Rockford, and Imogen quickly learns that dark secrets lurk behind the mansion's aristocratic exterior, hinting that the spate of deaths in her family were no accident. And at the center of the mystery is Imogen herself--and Sebastian, the childhood friend she has secretly loved for years. Just what has Imogen walked into?

The Empath Review

In a Victorian society fascinated by spiritualists, something wicked sinks its claws in from the other side.

Odessa is a psychic; her mother, the Great Madame Elena, is a fraud. After a séance goes terribly wrong and a woman ends up dead, an evil force slips into the land of the living.

Though Odessa and her mother try to outpace the rumors spreading, they can't escape the danger that has taken residence within Odessa herself. When Odessa is shouldered with the responsibility of the Great Madame Elena’s business, she starts to lose control of the spirit world, and she can’t afford to make another mistake.

Asked to open the door to the other side again, Odessa witnesses a brutal murder that hints at black magic and is faced with a choice: risk her life for freedom from her mother, or go on living a life of servitude. If she goes into a trance again, will she be able to maintain control?

A Grimm Legacy Review

Enchanted castles and charming princes thought to exist only in stories come to life in this classically twisted fairy tale that combines the timeless quality of folktales with the challenges of the modern world. 

The woods of Elorium appear ordinary to Andi… until the birds start to talk and elves answer doors. Whisked out of her world along with three strangers, Andi finds herself the reluctant guest of Mr. Jackson, a perplexing millionaire who claims to be able to help them get home. The secrets he harbors, however, make it difficult to know just who to trust. 

When the group of teenagers discover that in this new world, fiction is anything but, and that they all have unexpected family ties to this fairy tale land, they must learn to rely on each other. The only way to survive evil fairies and giants intent on keeping them in Elorium is to rely on each other. 

Faced with characters short on whimsy and bent toward treachery, Andi, Quinn, Fredrick, and Dylan are forced to play their parts in unfinished fairy tales. But in Elorium, happily ever after is never guaranteed.

An Excisioner—a practitioner of dark, flesh magic—invades the cottage and rips Thane’s heart from his chest. To save her teacher’s life, Ceony must face the evil magician and embark on an unbelievable adventure that will take her into the chambers of Thane’s still-beating heart—and reveal the very soul of the man.

Amity *Spoilers!*

Here is a house of ruin and rage, of death and deliverance.
Here is where I live, not living.
Here is always mine.

When Connor's family moves to Amity, a secluded house on the peaceful banks of New England's Concord River, his nights are plagued with gore-filled dreams of demons. destruction, and revenge. Dreams he kind of likes. Dreams he could make real, with Amity's help.

Ten years later, Gwen's family moves to Amity for a fresh start. Instead, she's haunted by lurid visions, disturbing voices, and questions about her own sanity. But with her history, who would ever believe her? And what could be done if they did?

Because Amity isn't just a house. She is a living force, bent on manipulating her inhabitants to her twisted will. She will use Connor and Gwen to bring about a violent end as she's done before. As she'll do again. And again. And again.

Inspired by a true-crime story, Amity spans generations to weave an overlapping, interconnected tale of terror, insanity. danger, and death.

The Bargaining Reveiw!(Spoilers)

The fact that neither of her parents wants to deal with her is nothing new to Penny. She’s used to being discussed like a problem, a problem her mother has finally passed on to her father. What she hasn’t gotten used to is her stepmother…especially when she finds out that she’ll have to spend the summer with April in the remote woods of Washington to restore a broken-down old house.

Set deep in a dense forest, the old Carver House is filled with abandoned antique furniture, rich architectural details, and its own chilling past. The only respite Penny can find away from April’s renovations is in Miller, the young guy who runs the local general store. He’s her only chance at a normal, and enjoyable, summer.
But Miller has his own connection to the Carver House, and it’s one that goes beyond the mysterious tapping Penny hears at her window, the handprints she finds smudging the glass panes, and the visions of children who beckon Penny to follow them into the dark woods. Miller’s past just might threaten to become the terror of Penny’s future….

Vivian Divine is Dead Review!

When a death threat arrives with teen celebrity Vivian Divine's fan mail, Vivian has no choice but to go on the run to Mexico. She soon discovers, though, that her Oscar-nominated performance killing villains on-screen did nothing to prepare her for escaping a madman in real life. Some people say he's a hero, others tremble in his presence, but one thing is clear: he won't stop until Vivian is in his grasp. Why didn't she pay more attention during those judo lessons for her role in Zombie Killer?

Vivian finds an ally in the mysterious and charming Nick. He is everything Hollywood boys are not-genuine, kind, and determined to see Vivian for who she really is. But even he seems like he can't be trusted-what could he be hiding?

Beat up, hungry, and more confused than ever about who she's running from, Vivian is living in a real-life blockbuster horror flick. But there's no option to yell "cut" like there is on set....

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children!

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children written by Ransom Riggs

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

Books being turned into Movies!

So of course the movie is never quite as good as the book,but we all love to see our favorite books hit the big screen. Only if its to make sure they did things the way we imagined them in our heads. Not to say some of those movies have turned out to be huge disappointments. I could name a few but then this would turn into a totally different post than I wanted it to. So here are some of the movies that have already come out and that will be coming out this year that are based on books. And these are just a few that I'm particularly excited for there are so many more than just these few.

The Beautiful Ones

The Beautiful Ones written by Lori Brighton

Some say we’re special, and that’s why we’re kept in seclusion. Beyond those walls evil lurks and innocent prey would be lost in minutes. Gone. Destroyed. Forgotten.
Others say the opposite: we’re locked away because there’s something wrong with us. If we roamed the outside world, we might taint the beautiful ones. A species so pure, that to merely be in their presence is a gift. 
As for my beliefs…I’m not sure. 
But I do know one thing: neither of those reasons explains why it is that they come for us only after we’ve passed the age of sixteen. Whether we want to go or not, we’re taken through those iron gates. Escorted away from the only home we’ve ever known, escorted to our destiny—whatever that destiny may be—never to be seen again.

Shows That Were Cancelled Too Soon

I've been watching Joan of Arcadia recently (awesome show by the way!). I've come to realize that there are so many shows that have been cancelled so much earlier than they should have been. So here are a few of the shows that I watched that ended too early for my liking.

Two Blues

Two Blues. One for Day. One for Night.
I found myself in the Night. Then saw the truth of myself in the Day.
How much of ourselves do we hide from the Day only to expose it to the Night?
How often do we whisper things into the Night, that we would rather forget about during the Day?
The ideas and thoughts you would rather no one ever find out about. Giving them over to the dark and quiet of the Night. Looking at the Day as if it some how absolves you of the things you gave to the Night. What if those ideas and thoughts didn't just break apart with the Daylight. What if they slithered through the Night seeking out all those things you've left in the darkness over time. Bringing them all together and making themselves come into being on only the emotion you left there in the dark cold spaces of life. Could you defeat it? Or would you succumb to the evil that you never knew was inside yourself?

I'm not entirely sure where that came from. I just wanted to write and there it is. Sometimes its one line other times its a huge paragraph. I wonder if this ever happens to other people. Do you ever get inspired by something and then it takes a life of its own and becomes something completely different? I'll leaves this here. If you do use it please credit me for writing it. I'd also love to read some of the things any of you have written. If you don't want to share it here email me at

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

I finally went to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. You have to see this movie in the the theater to get the full experience. This movie was even better than the first on. I highly recommend seeing these movies. I know that most movies like this don't appeal to everyone, but I would suggest you give them a chance. If you like them check out The Lord of the Rings movies as well. The Hobbit came before the Lord of the Rings but they can both stand alone. The Hobbit tells you how the one ring was found and The Lord of the Rings tells you what happened to the ring after it was found.

Holiday Madness / Traveling

Sorry for being gone so long. The holidays bring with them a certain type of madness. I had no time to read anything or do much of anything buy plan Christmas and New Years. I went on a trip to Florida for New Years and just got back. So I should be starting up again real soon. I would like to do a post about traveling though. I realized after not having been on a plane for about three years that not a lot has changed with traveling. But many people haven't or don't know how to make things easier on themselves.
