My name is Nicole Amburgey and I am a lifetime reader and a former bookseller of 18 years. I have spent more than half my life happily toiling away in both independent and chain bookstores.

My new career path has taken me away from bookstores, but my love of reading has not waned. Nor has my passion for talking about books with others. I wanted a place where I could still discuss and recommend what I have been reading and, on occasion, what I have been watching.

What kind of book reviews will you find here? This blog will be predominantly related to dark fiction – From magical realism to horror. I am a varied reader, but prefer my novels to bend toward the macabre. I also enjoy books about books – both fiction and non-fiction.
