Lock Every Door by Riley Sager | Book Review

I had extremely high expectations for this novel. Both of Sager's previous novels (Final Girls and The Last Time I Lied) garnered five star reviews from me. It's safe to say this is another knockout, and that Sager is one of my favorite new authors. The story follows a young woman named Jules who is in dire… Continue reading Lock Every Door by Riley Sager | Book Review

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

The thing is, Nancy had found a door to a world perfectly suited… Continue reading Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire | Book Review

The Shining by Stephen King | Book Review

The Shining is another fantastic novel by the King (pun intended) of Horror, and I found it more effective in its chills and spook factor than the film version. The story follows the Torrance family as they move to the Overlook hotel during the winter following a scandal caused by the father, Jack. Along with… Continue reading The Shining by Stephen King | Book Review

Gerald’s Game by Stephen King | Book Review

This is genuinely one of the most twisted, unique books I've read. Focusing on a sex game gone horribly wrong, this is the story of Jessie Burlingame's struggle to survive. That's not all that's going on, though. Jessie has voices speaking to her, a stray dog who is desperately hungry, and a possibly malevolent presence… Continue reading Gerald’s Game by Stephen King | Book Review
