Summary: Forget what you know or think you know about negative entities. Unless you are one of the few who have encountered a demon, it’s almost impossible to grasp the depth and scope of such pure evil and how these creatures can enter someone’s life and completely turn it upside down. Something Wicked explores the topic of negative energies, dark forces, and exorcisms with fresh eyes so that you may come to your own conclusions.


Waiting on Wednesday: Highway to Hell

Highway to Hell Zombie Apocalypse Max BrallierHighway to Hell (Zombie Apocalypse #2) by Max Brallier

Expected publication: August 2nd 2016 by Gallery Books

Summary: The sequel to the “pick-your-own-path” adventure Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?, which the Florida-Times Union hailed, “may just be the best thing to happen to literary zombies since Max Brooks”—for fans of the blockbuster phenomenon The Walking Dead.

You’ve probably read your fair share of zombie stories. But this time it’s different. In a horrific and hilarious cross-country road trip (or rather, suicide mission), you must overcome obstacles of every kind to save zombified America from utter collapse.

You’re inside your prison cell, waiting to be released. Your name is Jimmy El Camino, and you’re a badass—in fact, you’re asupreme badass. Rambo with style. Snake Plissken with a failing liver. You’ve killed more men than cancer. But more men than the zombie apocalypse? That’s questionable.

Your mission? Drive your heavily armed 1967 El Camino from New York City to San Francisco in order to save the world. Along the way, you’ll encounter Ring’s Most Wonderful Circus Show; you’ll battle zombies gladiator-style; you’ll be forced to deal with lunatics. And every step of the way, an army of drivers in armored vehicles is hot on your tail—because there is one man, the mayor of New York, who will stop at nothing to keep this apocalypse of the undead alive.

#SpringHorrorRAT TBR – FAILED


This read-a-thon couldn’t have come at a better time. If you read my first post, then you know that I started this blog as a way to get me back into reading the books I loved when I was younger. One of my favorite things to read when I was a kid was horror. So the fact that this read-a-thon is happening just a couple of days after I started this blog is amazing. Perfect timing. Though picking out the books was very difficult. There were just so many options.

I’m sure that if anyone is even reading this, you already know about this read-a-thon. In fact you are probably here because of it. But on the off-chance you are here, reading this, and you didn’t already know about it and you want to participate in it, you can sign up right here. Also, if you want to follow my progress I will probably be updating a lot on Goodreads, and I might be on Twitter a bit throughout the week (@ANovelNightmare).



🕷 Welcome To My Nightmare 🕷


👻 I’m Ghost and I love all things dark and spooky. 👻

When I was a kid I was incredibly quiet. I didn’t really talk (I have Selective Mutism) or even make much noise. Most of the time you wouldn’t even hear me come into or leave a room. My parents worked full-time, so my moms parents would take care of me and they started calling me Ghost. They would be doing something in a room by themselves, but when they turned around, there I was. I was always scaring people. Sometimes it was on purpose but most times it was an accident. They would always say I’m like a ghost. It wasn’t long before my parents started calling me Ghost. When I was older, the few friends I had for a bit would come over and hear it, so then they started. Eventually, even my teachers were calling me Ghost. It’s just what everyone calls me.

When I was around six years old, I started reading on my own, and I got hooked on Goosebumps. By the time I was 11 I was obsessed with horror movies, and was reading a lot of Stephen King, true crime and anything on the occult. I was the weird kid that didn’t talk, wore black and read weird books. Needless to say, I didn’t have many friends, and I got bullied a lot. So I would just spend most of my time during the week reading as much as possible. I loved to learn and I loved to escape. On the weekends I would go to my dads and we would rent a bunch of horror movies.

Once I started high school, I stopped reading. I don’t know why I did this, but I did. In 2008 I got back into reading. Which is great, but I was reading things other people were telling me to read. I do like to read pretty much every genre, but I haven’t been reading the books I loved when I was younger, and I miss it.

So that brings me to why I’ve decided to start this blog. I did it as a way to help me get back into what I love to read most. Maybe if I have a book blog to talk about these books, I might pick them up more. No more picking up the popular books on BookTube. I’m going to try to read what I want to read. I’m going to try to read what 11-14 year old me would have read. Hopefully by creating A Novel Nightmare, and talking about these books, I will find other people who enjoy the books I love. I will still read a bit of everything, but I probably wont talk about them on here. This is an attempt to get me to pick up more of what I really want to read, and I hope it works.
