Don’t let these dimples fool you. They belong to a woman with a dark and twisted mind.
When I’m not journaling, gardening, or de-stressing with a glass of wine and a good movie, I am pages deep in a gritty, gruesome, gory horror novel.
One thing I love about the horror genre is its versatility. As someone who genuinely believes there is a horror book for everyone, I think the genre has the power to bring us to tears, inspire us to act, invite us to peek into the forbidden, and encourage us to overcome our fears. There’s more to horror than just scares--but I’d be lying if I told you those thrills aren’t what make the book fun (like the peak you reach on a rollercoaster). That being said, I love finding a variety of ways to feel that adrenaline and luckily there is a horror sub-genre for all my sinister desires!
Aside from chills and thrills, I also dip my toes occasionally into the literary fiction genre, and I am a huge fan of classic literature as well. I love books with resilient survivors, tragic endings, lots of scandal, and a good villain.
