Happy Sci-Fi Month!


It’s November, so you know what that means: It’s officially Sci-Fi Month! After indulging in as many spooky viewing pleasures as we could squeeze in throughout October, we’re ready to explore the stars, set our lasers to kill, and blast off into a month of science fiction books and movies for the whole month of November!

Welcome to our little blog of horrors, Sugar & Scream! If you're looking for a monstrously good time, rest assured, you've come to the right place. We're two best friends with a sisterhood forged in the Unholy Trinity that is Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction. When we're not busy devouring books, we're cooking up sinisterly scrumptious baked goods and other delights (and sometimes horrors) in our kitchens. Expect the unexpected, because we like to shake things up. Our blog is its own Frankenstein's Monster of our hobbies and passions all stitched together into one glorious abomination that encompasses everything from what we're reading and watching, to the hobbies we're working on, to our adventures in baking and plenty more!

      1. One time I was riding my bicycle up and down the driveway. We lived on a dirt road, so, you know, one of those longer-ish driveways. I was spacing out, just imagining a whole story in my head, as I tend to do, and at one point I forgot to make the turn at the end of the driveway. I went right across the road and into one of those country ditches that are fairly deep and full of water. I seriously missed ALL of that and didn’t stop imagining until I realized I was under water and just looking up. I got out of the ditch, got my bike, went back across the road, and lo and behold, my dad and brother were standing there looking at me with the biggest WTF faces I’ve ever seen in my life.
