Started this for the first time tonight! 💀

Anyone read this series before?

Oh in case anyone is wondering..

I'm not on Bookstagram anymore, it was causing bother between me and my gf @MStew so we both quit!

We're doing great now 🙂

I hope you constant readers are doing well! 🤗

A good few of you have added me on here already, but I want to make sure most of you see this and who have #bookstagram to go ahead and follow me on there instead; that's where all my posts will be going in the immediate future.

So follow me, give me a recommendation and let's have fun with tags etc! 😃

I'd buy that for a dollar. 🤠

A printed in America copy so i was lucky to randomly come across it, i enjoy reading any material on this subject and this book is like the Yellow Pages so.. 🙂!

I've read lots of horror novels that people say are terrifying, but I'm never scared or creeped out; but reading this abduction stuff scares me 🙈

Get yer scalpel and get to..

Not read The Dark Tower in numerous years, I'm due a re-read and I CANNOT wait; I'm going to read this beforehand though.. been meaning to buy it for quite sometime.

It's like an encyclopedia of the series , smells glorious too! 👃😃

In 1973, Peter Hill was 19 during the summer break from art school in Dundee he took a position of relief lighthouse keeper and found himself living with three men on a tiny, remote island off the west coast of Scotland.

This book follows the year that Peter spent in the job, meeting unusual and fascinating people, learning the lore, and experiencing a way of life that has now all but disappeared.

Sounds interesting! 🌌🌠🌙

The new one I'm reading alongside the gf @meghan2714 🥰

It's a thought-provoking book and I've always been into learning about such interesting things.

I won't get into what I think about the whole thing because I'll be here all night and probably come across as an idiot to the unwoken but I will say that..I'm a believer..

Blindness | Jos Saramago

Picked this up the other day.

It's the story of an unexplained mass epidemic of blindness afflicting nearly everyone in an unnamed city, and the social breakdown that swiftly follows.

Fans of post-apocalyptic fiction should take a look at this. ☢

If anyone's has actually read it, I'd like to hear your thoughts.

1.) Glasgow/Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

3.) About the height of the Empire State Building. 🌇

4.) In bed, sitting up; next to a lamp & tea. ☕🌙

5.) I recommend that you, constant reader; should pick yourself up a copy of 1984 by George Orwell because I've never read a book that's literally blown my mind like that one did.

When it comes to HORROR movies this is right up at the top of my favourites list, right next to FRIGHT NIGHT. They were both released in 1985, my birth year and the best year for horror movies; zero bias! 🤷🏻‍♂️

This book features loads of previously unreleased photographs and exclusive artwork. It's the ultimate celebration of The Return of the Living Dead franchise and all those who contributed to its creation.

One of the Christmas presents I got from the gf @meghan2714 🤩

Reading here at Chicago airport, relaxing in the Admiral's lounge; drinking copious amounts of cocoa. 🐒

First off, there's nothing new here; story-wise. It's just a visual representation of DT!

I prefer my own vision of the greatest thing a reader can read.

Don't get me wrong, it was a fun read and I'll continue with the rest of these graphic novels.

Facts about every film genre, from blockbuster, rom-com, horror, crime, sci-fi, action, zombie, slasher and much more. Mixing cinematic fact with legend, it features infamous and often ludicrous tales of Hollywood. It has diagrams and charts included, this book is packed with over 100 original artworks and illustrations, facts to amaze, graphics on every major movie genre.

Its pretty cool!! 🤷🏻‍♂️
