My Opinion:
Horror fans, this is definitely for you. It had me looking over my shoulder when I was reading at home alone at night. It's that scary!
It's also very , and I mean, very graphic. In the same style as Stephen King, this author does not hold anything back from the imagination. Twisted, dark and gruesome are some of my favorite traits when reading this genre, I'd be disappointed if they weren't there, and this had it all!
Such intricate storytelling goes in this book. One minute you absolutely know everything that is going on.... or so you think... and then you're like, "WHOA!". You go on this trip with the writer and can't stop yourself following, even though it's like being the person in the horror movie that goes looking for the source of the noise instead of running. It's such good writing that you get immersed into something you already know isn't reality, but you lose sight if it still somehow the longer you read on.
Obviously I enjoyed the book. No, I loved it!!! So, enough said. If you like graphic horror or thriller, read it!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
