Ten Hidden Gems in The Horror Genre

Top Ten Tuesday is an awesome meme hosted by the lovely folks @ The Broke and the Bookish.

Living Dead Doll Figurines – The Collection So Far…

The Devil’s Metal by Karina Halle

Another amazing novel from Karin Halle – every bit as addictive as her Experiment In Terror series. The Devil’s Metal follows 21 year-old music lover Dawn Emerson. Dawn has aspirations of becoming a serious music journalist and her big break comes in the form of a job she never expected in her wildest dreams: the chance to go on the road with one of her favourite bands, Hybrid, courtesy of Creem magazine. Dawn jumps […]
