The Island of Dr. Moreau

As creepy as this book was, after these last few years of studying anatomy and all the sciences around medicine, it felt really silly. A lot of the th...more

So, I'm not sure whether or not I liked this one better than the first book. Lets analyze.

Plot: Much more interesting this time around. The murderer w...more

Firestarter

This is one of my most favorite King novels, primarily because it deals with such inexplicable things like telekinesis and pyrokinesis.

Never Knowing

I cannot read this book. I stuck with it until my mandatory 10% although I would have called it quits a few pages earlier.

This book was chosen as a B...more

Darkly Dreaming Dexter (Dexter, #1)
3.86
3 days in blood... creates a loathing for blood? At least bloodless body parts stacked up in patterns seem to be void of evidence.

Heaven (Casteel, #1)

I enjoyed some previous Andrews novels (especially the 4 girls known as the Orphans) but this book just was freaky, annoying and just plain weird!

The first Miéville book I ever read was The Scar, which is actually the second in the New Crobuzon series. So all I knew of the city that Perdido Stre...more

The Long Walk

I think I might have learned a lot more from this book than I realize.

It's dystopian (synonymous with morbid and painful) but usually it's exactly th...more

Dexter: An Omnibus (Dexter, #1-3)

Of the first three books in the series, I'd have to say the second was my favorite. I loved how at the end of the first the series started deviating f...more

Dexter by Design (Dexter, #4)

Flowers in the Attic (Dollanganger, #1)

This book was traumatizing. But I suppose everyone says that about V.C. Andrews. She honestly comes up with the oddest families ever, and then makes t...more

I find the film adaptations of Gaiman's work to be a lot more fulfilling than his actual writing, to be honest.

The Lottery and Other Stories

Essentially put: The Lottery is a freaky story that everyone should read. It shows human nature in a very different light.
