I just finished reading the start of another series (The Order of the Sanguines) called The Blood Gospel.


A soldier, a priest, and an archeologist walk into a bar... not really. They are all in Israel in an attempt to uncover the Blood Gospel, a book reportedly written by Christ in his own blood. And hey! The Bathory story is also woven into this story. There are vampires, called the Strigoi, and those called Sanguinists. The latter are priests that follow the church and drink a wine infused with Christs blood by special consecration or blessing, as opposed to human blood. This is all brought about by an old prophecy and the book ends before a new mission so I am assuming book 2 will pick right up.


Another book I am reading, published in 1887, is called Ten Days in a Mad-House written by a woman named Nellie Bly, a reporter, who fakes her way into an insane asylum in order to report her findings on the treatment of patients, etc... I instantly think Lana Winters from season 2 of American Horror Story.

Just finished this psychedelic gem. The only statement I can offer after reading this is that I'd like to try mescalin. Just half of the usual dose, because that's how I do. I know I'm in the right state of mind to go on this journey ;). The fact remains... we don't grow peyote 'round these parts.


(I hope there are no Beetlejuice sand-worms here)

I finished Heartsick by Cain. I loved it. I am already on to the second one, called Sweetheart.

I'm sick for the second time this year, which is unusual, but the germs just become germier until one day we cannot stand.

At least there is a NEW Twin Peaks teaser showing some of our favs 25yrs later. I'm pretty stoked about the whole thing, but unless I go to my mom's to watch I won't be able to see it until the next day.



I'm reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. It's simple to read, and entertaining. It's also not long as hell, which I appreciate. If you love Norse mythology, definitely read it.

The fact that this boy made it through his childhood trauma is a genuine miracle. While "multiple personalities" is still doubted today, this book takes you through a harrowing tale of a boy who acts out in a violent way. He loses time and forgets people and things. In this book, his adoptive mother takes you with her on the journey from adoption, to hospitalizations, to horrible flashbacks and blackouts and then comes full circle with therapy, integration, and recovery.

Talk about a dysfunctional family built upon a grave filled with lies and secrets! In trying to hide trauma, a family decides to take measures that only make matters worse. Poor, sweet Audrina. What's most horrifying is that the subject matter in these books are occurring in families all around the world.
