Peculiar & Strange
I am addicted to American Horror Story - I can't wait for a new show to pop up on my cable box. I savor the episodes - I even watch them twice at times. So far my faveorite has been episode 6 "Piggy Piggy" - it was well written, the plot line was great, I love the twist and there was something heart breaking about Tate's existence.
Many people might assume I am into a lot of horror - I am not. I like a good scary story line, real characters and thought provoking stuff. I am not a fan of the 80s slashers - I have never watched one all the way through. I think American Horror Story is scary but above all it has a story line. If more horror took shape like this I would be more into this genre.
I have had Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children on my list of 'to read' books for a few months - then my friend sent it to me and I dug right in. The photos are amazing - I really have this urge to go track down old photos now! I am on the last chapter of the book and I can't wait to see how it turns out. The story line fits perfect with the photos and the characters are amusing! Matt informed me that Tim Burton wants to make this into a movie. I would like for Tim Burton to stay away given his last handful of movies...I would hate to have one of the characters turn into a Johnny Depp pedophiliac atrocity.
