Read from October 24 to 25, 2012

If anyone can pull me out of my morose self loathing I-don't-know-what-to-read pity party, it's Abigail Roux. I needed an upbeat, easy and fun read, and that's what I got. Admittedly, I came into this with low expectations, but I ended up pleasantly surprised.

Ash was a different character from what I usually come across and I loved him. Suspenders and eyeliner? Yes, please! Then, you combine him with a cute intellectual? Sold. I only wish there were more scenes between the two of them. Right when things were about to get hot, some ghost would interrupt them (and me) and I found myself feeling like I just got gypped. The couple of scenes they did share though, I thoroughly enjoyed ;)

I thought it was really cool that she included actual historical events (like the LaLauries) and managed to tie them in with her own story. And, thanks to Abi, I also now know the difference between steampunk, gaslight, and "original" goth. Maybe I'll sound like I know what I'm talking about the next time I'm at a tattoo shop or some trendy bar.

Overall, this was a good time, I just recommend going into it for fun and not for a real scare.

Ilhem Hurt by Varian Krylovis also mindblowing. It's the best m/m/f I have ever read!
Warning : it's a tough reading.
