About thewytchinghourblog

I'm a horror loving librarian with the need to share reviews of everything horror, gore and spooky related. I'm an avid reader of books, mainly horror, definitely supernatural.

So, here we are to share all things blood splattered, things that go bump in the night and crawl out of the darkness.
