Book vs. Movie:  Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (SPOILERS!)

Book vs. Movie: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (SPOILERS!)

I’m going to open here with some honesty: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark was one of the most satisfying book to film experiences I’ve ever had. Before we go any further, I do want to emphasize the quantity of spoilers to follow.  There will be a lot of spoilers.  It’s a bit difficult to talk about a movie adaptation without talking about the movie, so if you haven’t seen Scary Stories yet (especially since it just came to theatres at the end of August), please tread carefully.  Thanks, loves! Also, I do include some GIFs from the film in […]

Ghost Stories You Simply Must Read

Ghost Stories You Simply Must Read

Without further ado, I present: October. Remember last month when I only hauled two books?  Yeah, that was adorable.  The beginning of October typical means a […]

The 90s Kid Book Tag

The 90s Kid Book Tag

Guys I love book tags.  I may not do them very often, but they’re always so much fun.  I wanted to create my own!  I’ve looked high and low, but I haven’t found a 90s Kid Book Tag yet.  We 90s kids are hugely nostalgic, so this came as a bit of a surprise to me!  I had to make one. Originally, this tag had about 40 items (oops).  I’ve cut it way down to what I thought were the most interesting ones… and if you weren’t a 90s kid – don’t worry!  I’ve tried to explain some of our […]
