Siblings Ryan and Jane decide to spend one last holiday before their family vacation home in the mountains is sold after a divorce. They invite their closest friends, but all that does is bring up old wounds and awkward memories. As a blizzard snows them in, frustration builds between the friends, all the while something in the forest inches closer and closer.
Why this book?: I was in the mood for some stereotypical, potentially gorey, horror. This was available on Scribd and the summary caught my attention, so let’s hope this scratches that itch I’ve been having!
Sadie woke with a gift after a near-death experience in her teens, one that she avoided using at all costs, until she had no choice. Sadie can see the dead, but she had been taught to never go near them, to ignore them, and soon she stopped seeing them. That is, until a family friend, years later, finds Sadie and asks for her help to save her daughter, who is being haunted by … something. With her co-workers help, Sadie decides to start using her gift for good.
Why this book?: It looked and sounded good and was on the Scribd catalog. Plus I was a little upset about how my last read ended, so I wanted another good, horror/thriller ghost mystery.
Felix Allsey is a travel writer down on his luck, desperate for a break that will make him a household name. When he convinces the owner of the infamous Rotterdam Mansion to let him stay there for thirteen nights, he invites his estranged friend Thomas along, in hopes of rekindling their friendship. But as more and more strange events start happening, they realize they may have bit off more then they can chew.
Why this book?: I’m trying to get back into reading and reviewing, and fast-paced horror seemed the best place to do that. I found this one on Scribd, and thought it looked interesting!
Hi all! I realize you haven’t heard from me that much recently, but I’m trying to keep this blog as active as I can as I go through my second year of college. Thankfully, the people at Penguin Young Readers were able to offer me this amazing opportunity, and I was gifted a surprise package in the form of a diverse and spooky upcoming YA release.
Below, you won’t find my review (not just yet!), but you’ll find something just as amazing. I very loosely based a short horror quiz off this story. While I didn’t want to spoil much with the options, I thought that I took it in a fairly neutral, but fun, direction. I hope y’all enjoy!
