No One Rides for Free (Absolutely Disgusting Splatter Horror)

  I found myself pondering what the best way to start my New Year’s off with, looked in my TBR, and made the decision that a short and sweet Judith Sonnet special would do the trick. Let’s just say, would I class it as “the best way?” I don’t actually know. Books like this make it […]

Night of the Freaks has that undertone; an ominous, dark feeling, that continues through the book, as I learned of the stuff that happens within “William Wilson’s Wonderful World Of The Weirdos.” This read gets straight into the action, leaving the reader […]
