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! 


5/5

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
