Scorch by Ashley Witter & Nobody is Ever Missing by Catherine Lacey Another Kickstarted comic, I told you I am an avid Kickstarter, I wasn't lying. This is a very Halloween themed comic, and is perfect reading for the upcoming season. The story is a bit confusing, and it took me a bit to puzzle out what was going on, but I loved the art. It has the kind of Invader Zim-esque…

Asylum by Madeleine Roux & Ghost Story by Peter Straub This continuously caught my eye when I worked at Barnes & Noble. I am a huge horror fan, movies, books, haunted houses, you name it.

When I saw it on…

  My two most recent reads were: The Glass Demon by Helen Grant  & Where’d you Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple I recommend them both with high honors! It would be hard to pick a favorite, since they are so different in terms of subject matter and writing style. The Glass Demon reads like a fairytale almost, it has a creepy underlying theme, almost like a Grimm brothers story. It takes place in Germany…
