Sharing the Love_Book Blogger Appreciation

Recently there was a general uproar on SM after a publisher (I’m not naming them but most of you will know who it was) bad-mouthed book bloggers and questioned the point of them unless they have influence and reach.

Silly and wrong! We have arms and legs so obviously, we have reach! Granted, not the same reach as Hulk Hogan and his 24-inch pythons brother (every post needs a WWE reference well, it was WWF when Hulkamania was running wild). But reach nonetheless and technically, even if only one person reads a blog post it has reached someone.

For influence. Well, we aren’t cult leaders (I doubt that The Cult of Drew would get many followers) so we don’t need to influence people! But again, even if only one person reads a review on a book blog and decides that they want to read…

Movie Review

img_20170128_071245

Have I ever mentioned that Alice is my hero? Or that I am a HUGE fan of anything Resident Evil? 

It’s no secret that I love zombies, so this franchise holds a very special place in my heart and I am fiercely protective of it. I also love the games or at least the first six games ( I have reservations about Resident Evil 7 because of the first-person shooter POV). As you can imagine I was beyond excited to see “The Final Chapter” last night, and also a little sad.

The Haunting of Hill House (No Spoilers) #Review #Discussion #Horror #Netflix #BasedonaBook #Blogtober #TheHauntingofHillHouse

Good morning!

Well, I finished this last night and I have the worst TV hangover ever! I miss it so much! I miss the characters, I miss Hill House, and I’m so sad I have nothing left to watch.

This show is just phenomenal! The last episode had me scared and in tears! Everything was wrapped up beautifully, in a perfect, cobweb-encrusted bow. Honestly, I’m completely satisfied with just the one season, and I think at this point going beyond season one, would mean taking the show outside the scope of Shirley Jackson’s book. It can be done, and the writers have the chops to pull it off, but I think you’ll find the conclusion perfect! There are of course, a few easter eggs left for them to continue if viewers are craving more. 😉

Guys, stop everything you’re watching right now and watch The Haunting of Hill House! You will not regret it!

A+++

OMG you guys! Are you watching this? This has to be the best adaptation so far!

The Haunting of Hill House dropped its first season yesterday, and though I’m only on episode 4, I am obsessed!

Based on the very famous book by Shirley Jackson, The Haunting of Hill House is the family drama of your nightmares!

The Book:

First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a “haunting”; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House…
