First time I read this one was like fifteen years ago, and yes, this is a classic mystery that I would recommend, and that sucks you in, unlike other mystery or thrillers I have read where there is not much to it.
I don’t mean to be so dismissive of new stories, but some of those books leave me with a sense of: meh. I cannot help. Even if I do have a section on Mystery/Thriller here on the blog because I recently read more books in that genre than I ever did in the past.
Anyway, going back to And Then There Were None, which even for my young mind, it was quite good and left me wondering about it for a few days. I don’t remember the whole meat in the middle of it, but I know that I liked it.

A mystery? Yes, it sort of was, but was it horror? Not really. This book dives into the mind of a Final Girl, literally. But that’s just one opinion.

Well, I have my doubts about the horror tag or thriller, it’s more Mystery and Drama than anything else.
Hello, dearies! 📽
This one it’s more like a movie than a book, and you find yourself thinking about all the horror movies you watched in the past, and trying to pair those with the characters in the book rather than paying attention to the storyline.

Hello, dearies! ✉️
Did you watch it? Have you watched it yet?
Stranger Things Season 4 is now available, and all that promises it delivers, you can watch all of it now, or wait until July for the second part and binge-watch the whole season, I would have done that, but I couldn’t wait anymore, I wanted to see now, now, go, go.
It’s so good. And Jamie Campbell Bower is there, so he makes it all better. Like wherever he is, you are entranced by his role, and you want to know more about it. 🎥

This one is not going to be easy.
Hello, dearies! I barely remember the details but the general idea instead since it was such a long time ago that I read Interview with the Vampire, what I do remember is thinking how darkly different it was from the movie.
Of course, I had watched the movie before reading the book, but when I read this book, it was a real eye-opener for my young mind.

I’m not a big fan of mystery, horror, and that sort of books but there are a few that could persuade me to read them, and I wanted to share them here, given, most would because I have seen a movie related to it and I already know more or less what it would be like.

How a true “teenage” vampire should act…
A read these books I think a year or so after the Twilight Saga, I cannot recall actually, it was after Twilight, I know that much and boy! Did it open my eyes, of course so it had Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice but that book is a different type of history and drama in a more adult and sometimes creepier way.
Now, this story about vampires is really something else, after the first two books you really begin to wonder if you will finish the whole thing, it happened to me but there was just something about it that kept me there, I continued reading and reading and then I was in the final books and could not believe how it started and where it had led, pretty interesting way of making the reader be immerse into the story. Alright, let’s begin.
