The Witch's Lens | Luanne G. Smith
post image
Pickpick

As World War I rages, there are evils-living and dead-that only a witch can see. Petra Kurkova, a born witch, has the ability to capture the dead on film. She is recruited to join a team of sorcerers headed to the frontlines, where the bloodshed has resurrected foul creatures.

Great blend of historical, fantasy, and horror. I highly recommend.

I didn‘t expect a high score. I don‘t listen to a big variety of music, mostly different branches of rock and instrumental.

This is tough cause I love music as much as I love books and movies. These are a few favorites I‘ve been listening to lately.

Ice Nine Kills - The Silver Scream
Silverchair - Neon Ballroom
Three Days Grace - Life Starts Now

Pink Floyd The Wall is always a top favorite.

1. My first copy of Stephen King‘s It looks pretty worn from rereads but is still in one piece. I had to tape the cover back onto a book I read a lot when I was a kid, Me and Katie (The Pest). Never actually ruined a book.

2. Tanith Lee, Poppy Z. Brite, George R. R. Martin, Nancy A. Collins, Robert Jordan.

1. There was a library up the street from my childhood home. I enjoyed being able to go there alone and stay as long as I wanted during summer vacation. It was there I discovered Greek Mythology, and that some of my favorite movies back then were based on those tales.

2. Bookstores. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ThriftBooks.

3. Complete Guide to Thoroughbred Racing, Winter‘s Fury, and Persephone‘s Pathway.

Flashback | Dan Simmons
post image
Pickpick

A dystopian thriller set in a future where the U.S. is near total collapse, and most of the population is addicted to a drug called Flashback.
The tone of this story was heavy. It took a bit to get through. It was well written. The murder investigation conducted by the MC, Nick Bottom-ex detective and flashback addict-kept me going to the end.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

‘What is she really—human or beast? Which tastes sweeter—blood or chocolate?‘

I read this once a while back after seeing the movie. I remember being disappointed because it was nothing like the film. It‘s been a while so I couldn‘t remember it too well. I really enjoyed this reread of it. I wouldn‘t mind checking out the author‘s other books.

Carrie White does not have it easy. She is unpopular at school and subjected to her mother‘s religious fanaticism at home. She also has a secret: she can move things with her mind. When she feels like she‘s been given a chance to be normal, an unexpected and cruel prank turns her gift into a weapon of horror.

This was a reread. Always as good as the first time I read it.

‘The daughter of the witch has spent her life in the forest, in a wondrous candy cottage as dangerous as it is beautiful. She seeks to undo her mother‘s spells and free the poor souls who fell to temptation.‘
A fantastic mashup of #HanselAndGretel and The Gingerbread Man. This was cute, sugary sweet, and just a little bit Grimm.

A Villain‘s Ever After Series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Pamela C. Smith, a London-born empath with second sight, is hired by the Golden Dawn to illustrate a deck of tarot cards. When she refuses to share her creations with Aleister Crowley, he issues a threat: give up the card‘s power, or he‘ll harm her muses.

Great writing. A magical read featuring many notable figures from history. Highly recommend.
