ThereContinue reading “The Turn of the Screw * Henry James”
Psss… Hey you! I heard you liked sci-fi movies involving an alien invasion. Wanna hear what this book is all about? Aliens invade the earth in five steps, using electromagnetic pulse, induced tsunamis, and a pandemic. They must have their own reasons for this methodical but inefficient campaign, and the motivations of aliens could indeedContinue reading “The Fifth Wave BY RICK YANCEY”
A few years back I’ve watched a horror movie called “The Girl Next Door”. I was terrified. I was upset. It made me hate the adults and the kids with ferocity. A year later, I thought I’d found the book based on which the movie was made, but it turned out to be a dud.Continue reading “The Girl Next Door * Jack Ketchum”
