Blackout by Mira Grant

Blackout by Mira Grant

Happy Halloween, Bookworms! I’m looking forward to trick-or-treaters tonight! It’s supposed to rain, so perhaps we won’t reach our record of 300 ghosts and goblins, but it should be fun regardless. Anyway, today also marks the end of my all-scary-all-the-time reading binge. I’m celebrating by discussing the final installment of Mira Grant’s Newsflesh trilogy, Blackout.  As I mentioned when we discussed Deadline, it’s impossible to discuss the final installment of a trilogy without spoiling things… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday: Literary Costume Edition

Top Ten Tuesday: Literary Costume Edition

Howl do you do, Bookworms? Today is Tuesday, and, as is traditional, I’m going to be making a list with the fabulous ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic was supposed to be Top Ten Spooky Book covers or Top Ten Halloween Reads. However, I’m feeling rebellious (and I pretty much covered Top Ten Halloween reads in This Post.) I’m going rogue because I can do that,… Read more »

Deadline by Mira Grant

Hey There Bookworms! You’re reading Words for Worms from my new self hosted site. Eeep! I tried to post a notice on the old account, but it errored out, so ignore that if you saw it. You probably don’t need to do a darn thing to keep following me as I’ve been using wordsforworms.com as my site address for well over a year. I’m neurotic, I believe in overkill. I… Read more »

Confession Friday: I Eat Kiddie Cereal

Confession Friday: I Eat Kiddie Cereal

Confession time, Bookworms! I think there’s a law of the universe that says once you’ve reached a certain age you’re supposed to develop a taste for boring grown-up cereals. It would seem I fail at being an adult. Keep your bran flakes! Anything with chocolate and/or marshmallows is what strikes my fancy. The thing is, I don’t normally eat cereal for breakfast. I’m bad at mornings, so I pretty much… Read more »

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Salutations Bookworms,  I love October. The air is getting crisp and apples are in season. It makes me want to snuggle up and read even more than usual! In continuation of my dark and spooky October reading fest, I decided to pick up Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Coraline is a little girl who is bored out of her mind during a school vacation. Her parents both work from home, but they are… Read more »

Feed Me, Seymour! (Feed by Mira Grant)

Feed Me, Seymour! (Feed by Mira Grant)

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! I’ve been having an absolute blast reading all these scary books lately. I kept hearing great things about the Newsflesh trilogy by Mira Grant- I simply couldn’t stop myself from picking up a copy of Feed.  The Zombie Apocalypse? Been there, done that. This book takes place 30 years post outbreak. Apparently the virus that causes people to rise from the dead was caused by an interaction between two genetically engineered… Read more »
