Top Ten Tuesday: Horror Movies I Want To Watch To Get In The Halloween Spirit

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is a Halloween Freebie and I'm going to feature horror movies I want to watch this season to get into the Halloween Spirit.  All of the movies on my list are movies I've never seen before and hope to watch for the first time this season.  Here we go, in alphabetical order by title: American Psycho(2000) - I've always lumped this together with Fight Club but I prefer this one. The dark and cynical sense of humor and Bale's performance make it work. As Above So Below(2014) - I liked this more than I expected to. It starts pretty unique but the last quarter of the movie wasn't the best. It's especially interesting if you know your Dante. A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night(2014) - One of my new favorite vampire movies and it features a really good kitty cat.  I should have watched this years ago. Housebound(2014) - I'm still waiting on my library hold …

The Mummy of Monte Cristo by J. Trevor Robinson (ARC) - Review

❋❋ ❋
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.


A thrilling tale of magic, monsters, envy, wrongful imprisonment, and revenge. Adapted from the classic Alexandre Dumas adventure The Count of Monte Cristo. When jealousy and ambition drive a group of men to frame young Edmond Dantes for treason, he’s sent to prison indefinitely; there, he finds a friend and tutor who tells him about a terrible power hidden on the island of Monte Cristo.
