When is a good time for a child to leave the parent’s house?

I have met some people who think it's acceptable to sit on their parent's sofa, eat their food, drive their car and complain when they get asked to go out and find a job. So I started asking myself, when is a good time for a child to leave home? I suppose it depends on … Continue reading When is a good time for a child to leave the parent’s house?

The Pentacle * Stephen King Short Story

I thought I read everything that the King produced but this one came as a surprise. Magic spells, blood sacrifices, covens called "Lucifer's disciples". This is a story of a group of friends who are trying to invoke the old gods of death from ancient Mesopotamia like Marduk (This sounds a lot like Anne Rice's … Continue reading The Pentacle * Stephen King Short Story

Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream, The earth, and every common sight, To me did seem Apparelled in celestial light, The glory and the freshness of a dream. It is not now as it hath been of yore;— Turn wheresoe'er I may, By night or day. The things which I have seen … Continue reading Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

Forever Odd * Odd Thomas Series by Dean Koontz

The heart is an artist that paints over what profoundly disturbs us, leaving on the canvas a less dark, less sharp version of the truth. This is a good, if quieter and slower-paced read than ODD THOMAS. We still have Odd with his dead-seeing power and his good heart that wants to help, even if it … Continue reading Forever Odd * Odd Thomas Series by Dean Koontz

There is a Reaper, whose name is Death, And, with his sickle keen, He reaps the bearded grain at a breath, And the flowers that grow between.

Though the breath of these flowers is sweet to me, I will give … Continue reading The Reaper and the Flowers * Wadsworth Poetry

Jeff Lindsay * Darkly Dreaming Dexter Book 1

It's been close to 13 years since I first read this book. The "Dexter" show was in full swing and I ran across the book in the stores and, since I wanted to be a police-woman, I wanted to see how serial killers thought and behaved first hand. And who could teach better than Dexter, … Continue reading Jeff Lindsay * Darkly Dreaming Dexter Book 1

The War of the Worlds * H.G. Wells

Every passing decade, the culture of human beings as a whole has been significantly affected by technology and science. Whether it’s something small, like the invention of automatic doors, or something enormously important, like the invention of the telegraph or the discovery of DNA, technology and science change the way we live, and how we view life, all the … Continue reading The War of the Worlds * H.G. Wells

The Haunting of Ashburn House * Darcy Coates * Book review

I really liked this book and I'll tell you why! There is nothing better than a gothic-style house, a newcomer that finds there is a gruesome secret behind it and the moment they find out it's haunted and they're in mortal danger. There were several pieces of literature lying about my house concerning haunted houses … Continue reading The Haunting of Ashburn House * Darcy Coates * Book review
