“I never drink…wine.” Thanks for checking out my blog! Here’s a little of what you’ll find here: posts about books, movies, reviews, Autumn, Halloween, conventions, travel, Godzilla, adventures in cooking (I’m pretty terrible at it!), witchcraft, my friends, family, dogs, anything to do with horror and sci-fi, and whatever else pops into my head at […]Read More I bid you welcome…
Ah, Cujo. When you’re into horror/suspense/thriller stories, can you go wrong with Stephen King? No, no you can’t.

Yeah, the above picture is from a movie, not real life, but it’s tough to tell, ain’t it? Lockdowns, job loss, school closures; it’s like a horror movie! I’ve been […]Read More These are crazy times we’re livin’ in!
I don’t know what it is, but I have been OBSESSED lately with the idea of having a proper English afternoon tea party! And when I found this gorgeous tea set on Etsy, I knew it was going to happen one day soon. Of course, this tea set isn’t cheap. I mean, just look at […]Read More Tea time!
A little ambitious, since there’s only 20 days left in this month, but the books aren’t too long. I’ve read War of the Worlds before, but not the others. I realize The Puppet Masters and Invasion of the Body Snatchers will be very similar, but I can’t wait to read the source material that spawned […]Read More TBR stack for Sci-fi month
