Review: The Girl From The Well by Rin Chupeco

Riveting and full of suspense, The Girl From The Well is an amazing YA horror novel by Rin Chupeco. The creepy narration style combined with incredibly well-developed characters, The Girl From The Well by Rin Chupeco is quite an intriguing story, and unique in the way the story is told from the lens of a dead girl.

And she is the one who tells us a horror story about a cursed young boy named Tarquin, who has demons trapped beneath his skin, and a secret family history involving eerie doll rituals and exorcisms that follow ancient Japanese rituals.

Top 10 Books Set In Places I’d Love to Visit 

Usually, when I am reading any book, I find myself wanting to live in the fictional, fantasy worlds they are set in. But once in a while, I’ll come across books set in beautiful places in the real world, and my inner wanderlust would be instantly triggered!

Unfortunately, I am too broke to travel to all of the beautiful places I read about in books, and even if I could afford it–being a brown girl means I have family restrictions when it comes to traveling solo. Sigh.

Netflix Series Review: The Haunting Of Bly Manor

Having a mother who is obsessed with horror films I have watched my fair share of the scariest movies you could think of–the list includes box office hits and underrated gems alike. And as I grew older, I realized that not only did I share a love of the terrifying unknown and inexplicable with my mother–we also shared a love for horror stories that were more than jump scares, possessions, and tales of revenge.
