There's desert surrounding it, and no … Continue reading Welcome to Night Vale
I 100% chose this for the title. Because it's genius. If Beth Harbison did anything right, it's the title. Quinn always thought she was lucky in love. She was marrying her high school sweetheart, Burke, the man of her dreams. Or that was the plan, at least, until his brother Frank told her that Burke … Continue reading Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger

Does anyone else wonder what it's like in Stephen King's head? Because holy mackerel, the stories this guy writes. I've read a few of them, but It is by far the weirdest.

This post has no book, just a heart-felt thank you from me and Loki. I love to read and I always have. I never thought much about a blog, until people encouraged me to do it. Turns out, I kind of love it. I've had almost 1000 hits, from people in 20 different countries, and … Continue reading Thank you!
