Every time anything with Stephen King’s name stamp on it comes out, I get super excited (He is, after all, one of my favourite authors!), so I was super psyched to watch The Dark Tower movie.

Horror is one of my favourite genres, and when you talk about horror in  fiction, you can’t go by without thinking of Stephen King. In a career spanning decades and dozens of best selling novels that sent chills down our spines such as It and Pet Sematary, King is… well, king of horror novels. I recently bought one of his older books, written under the … Continue reading Book Review – Thinner by Stephen King
