The Institute: Book Review

In a career that spans over five decades, Stephen King has been terrifying his readers. He has created some of the most nefarious characters in literature, from the demonic clown of It to the psychotic nurse in Misery. He has been described by many as the “King of Horror”, but to his most loyal readers (Constant Readers) that name is a gross misconception. The Institute, … Continue reading The Institute: Book Review

Doctor Sleep Movie Review

✶✶✶1/2

Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining has been regarded as one of the greatest horror films of all-time. Loosely based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, Kubrick’s vision focused more on the psychological thrills of the story, challenging the viewers to question what they saw was real or illusion. The movie as an adaptation has been vehemently opposed by fans of the book, however, the film on its own is nothing short of a directorial masterpiece.

Difficulties In Reading Dated Source Material

I’m the type of person when watching a trailer for something that looks especially tasty and I find out that there’s a book/comic attached it means nothing else can happen until I read the source material. I feel like I owe it to the author to consume the story how it was initially created. Sure, this all feeds into my OCD problems, like how my … Continue reading Difficulties In Reading Dated Source Material

An Ambitious Reading Journey… and Its Crushing Weight

I do a lot of reading. If you’ve been a fan of the site for a while this shouldn’t come as much as a surprise for you. I feel like I’m frequently here talking about what books I’m reading, have read, or thinking about reading and relaying them to my Good Reads account which I might have a slight obsession with. Seriously, life before Good … Continue reading An Ambitious Reading Journey… and Its Crushing Weight

Lunches Without Reading Are Pointless

I don’t know about you Geeklings, but I very much look forward to my lunch. Actually, I’d be surprised if there was anyone out there who was like “You know what Kevin, I’d rather work the whole day. Lunch is for chumps.” Yes, we all look forward to our lunchtimes. I use my lunch for reading… I eat also but reading is my top priority. … Continue reading Lunches Without Reading Are Pointless

Book Shelf- First Book Quit Of the Year

Thus far 2018 has been a pretty good reading year for yours truly. I felt that my numbers were down last year and was disappointed with the number of novels I was able to pump out. Graphic novels, on the other hand, I read plenty of those. Hell, if it wasn’t for graphic novels I probably wouldn’t have met my Reading Challenge. This year though, … Continue reading Book Shelf- First Book Quit Of the Year

Book Shelf- Reading Before The Movie Comes Out

Geeklings, I am up against the clock. I’ve got about three days to read 150 pages. I know that doesn’t sound that stressful, or difficult, and it really isn’t but I’m up against the clock here. Granted, it’s completely a self-inflicted clock that has no real pressure outside of self-inflicted pressure, but it’s a clock none the less. If you recall in yesterdays super lame Week In Geek I mentioned … Continue reading Book Shelf- Reading Before The Movie Comes Out

The Reading Challenge That Was/The Reading Challenge That Is

2017 wasn’t the greatest reading year for me. It’s strange saying that considering I met my Good Reads challenge, 42 books, but it’s true. You see, last year was the first year that I incorporated graphic novels into my reading challenge having always just counted the novels, but I figured they’re books too and I read them so they should be on the list. I … Continue reading The Reading Challenge That Was/The Reading Challenge That Is
