I'm never one to give up on a book. Especially an authors work I don't truly understand, I wanted to give H.P another chance. And I’m Soo glad I did! He's just breathtaking and Way way way way Way Ahead of his time for the time he was in! Howard Phillips Lovecraft, You truly are the king of horror. I used to think it was Stephen king himself and he is up there with you. But he's a horror king of a different kind. Your The weird kind and I love it! H.P Lovecraft I salute you <3

We Need to Talk About Kevin - Lionel Shriver

Very very short review on this.

 

 

Took me a while to get my hands on this as i got it from My local Library.

 

I don't think I could ever get the sound. shsh-thunk. out of my head again. An absolutely heartbreaking tale. I was left with a deep unease after reading this book.

 

This book is just devastating.

At the Mountains of Madness and Other Novels of Terror: At the Mountains of Madness and Other Novels of Terror No. 1 (H.P. Lovecraft Omnibus) (Paperback) - Common - By (author) H. P. Lovecraft

It just goes to prove. That if you don't understand something you should never give up on it. And that’s what I did with H.P Lovecraft and now I’m totally obsessed with the man!

 

His mind and his tales are just mind blowing how a man in his time and age had all these wonderful tales in his head. Its the creatures and beasts and the Monsters That amaze me! And the landscapes and temples his Whole... The old gods! I could go on and on. At the moment I’m reading. “Dream quest of unknown kadath” I LOVE IT!!!! absolutely love it.

 

Its like a very weird mix of Fantasy and horror, it has cats and zebras instead of pack donkeys. and ghouls. Its about Randolph Carter who is the main char. Apart from the strange case of Dexter ward I think this is one of his biggest story’s and I can already tell there’s a lot of other connections to his other tales in this one.

 

I've been told there’s a DVD and a comic book somewhere of this story so I’m on the hunt to find them. As i'm completely and utterly obsessed now. :p

February 2014 Group Read: We Have Always Lived in the Castle
We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson,Joyce Carol Oates

Picked this book up for the Horror Aficionados Group Read February.

 

This book was Haunting psychological Its only a short book 110 pages but I couldn't put it down once I began, it grabs you.

 

This is a chillingly Disturbing story that has nothing to do with the things that go BUMP in the night. No, it's the odd terror that comes when things go BUMP in the mind. And the most terrifying things are those that are left unsaid, that creep up at you from behind the printed lines, just hinted at and left for your own brain to chillingly realize.

 

“My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I am eighteen years old, and I live with my sister Constance. I have often thought that with any luck at all, I could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both my hands are the same length, but I have had to be content with what I had. I dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise. I like my sister Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cup mushroom. Everyone else in our family is dead.”

 

I mean does that sound like a sane mind to you!??

 

There is a big big underline of agoraphobia In this story I personally felt so sorry for Constance. She knows, and she can't bring herself to do anything with the knowledge. And the villagers??! there just as messed up. Deeply weird little book.

 

This book got under my skin It's one of them books that you think about.

 

It left me with a ... But i wanted too!
