Doctor Sleep by Stephen King | Book Review

The Shining is one of my favorite books by Stephen King, but for some reason I held off on reading this for such a long time. Trepidation that this wouldn't live up to the original novel?

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz | Book Review

I returned to this novel for two reasons: 1) Because the film adaptation is coming out and 2) this book series scared me so much as a kid that I couldn't sleep alone for a long time and wanted to prove to myself I was no longer a baby. On the plus side, these stories… Continue reading Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz | Book Review
