I am very much awake. Not tired at all. I do not have trouble with getting sleep or staying awake. Am I convincing you?
Currently I am working on a few reviews, but I think my brain is a bit blocked and I can’t seem to be satisfied with my reviews. On a different note, though, despite me being tired I am enjoying a lot of reading. With autumn in the air, my prefered reading is horror and today’s list is very much a representation for that.

A skeptic restoring a haunted house. I’m a skeptic and I don’t believe in the paranormal, but I am a HUGE fan of the paranormal anyway. Give me ghosts and horror stories!

Trigger warning: I have not read this book yet, so I’m not sure what warnings there needs to be. However, I am sure this book just needs all of the warnings. I am expecting graphic and disturbing stuff from this read, and I’m interested in seeing whether or not I can stomach it.

Published: June 1986 by Berkley Books
I am getting deep into my horror mood for books and Clive Barker has been on my radar for so long. I am a huge fan of Hellraiser (the movie) and I want to see whose mind that came from. I’ve already read a bit of this book, and so far I am loving it. Warning – this has quite a bit of graphic content.
