Review: American Midnight: Tales of the Dark

American Midnight - Tales of the Dark

“A chilling collection of classic weird and supernatural tales from the dark heart of American literature.”

As soon as I saw the description for American Midnight: Tales of the Dark, I knew I had to read it. This collection of short stories is edited by Laird Hunt, and contains eerie stories all by American authors. Some were classic titles I instantly recognized, and others were new to me, but all of them gave me chills and kept me up at night.

Last week, after posting my list of Top 5 Books to Read if You Love Reality TV, I told friends I’d curate other book lists for them on specific topics or genres they were interested in.

Top 5 Books if You Like Reality TV

My attention span for reading is usually pretty great. Typically, I’m able to sit and read without interruption for hours on end. But lately, given all this *gestures at the dark void that has become our planet* my ability to read has dwindled. I’ve found myself grabbing shorter books and lots of graphic novels, and when I really can’t focus, I put on reality TV shows.

Netflix’s timing has been perfect, in a way. What better time has there ever been to binge-watch reality shows? I’ve made my way through Love is Blind, recently finished Too Hot To Handle, and am eagerly looking for a new show to fill my time.

One of my friends suggested I write a post about these shows, but instead, in true book nerd fashion, I’ve put together a list of five books to read if you love reality TV.

Review: RWBY: The Official Manga, Vol. 1

RWBY Vol. 1

Today I sat down and read RWBY: The Official Manga, Vol. 1 and it was incredible.

I wasn’t too sure what to expect from The Subtweet by Vivek Shraya, but it exceeded all of my expectations. It was incredibly smart, well-written, and made me think a lot, even days after finishing it.
