Sometimes, I lie in bed at night and disappear myself into that alternate world. Often, it's a world that's easier to navigate than the real one.(less)

It's been a while since I've logged in on Goodreads, to update my reading list, and I notice some of the books I was reading…I gave up on. Not because they weren't wonderful, but because I either got sidetracked by life or they weren't the exact type of work I was in the mood for at the moment.

l am actually reading a book called Saint Joan right now that my sister gave me. Also, I'm midway thr... Read more of this blog post »

Pet Sematary by Stephen King
"Wow. Just wow. I've put off reading this one for years because, well.... I'm a wimp. There, I said it. When one of the most well-known names in the contemporary era of the horror genre says something is his scariest book, I take note. It seems biz..." Read more of this review »
