Riley Sager is a favorite but this story wasn‘t. No matter what, I‘m usually wrong in the end about the villain. This was no exception, it just happens that this one just didn‘t thrill me. #audio #christyread #ScaryStories #RSagerIsAwesome

Riley Sager can do no wrong!

Loved this one. If you were a fan of The Haunting of Hill House you need to read this.

Kept me hooked until the very end.

I haven‘t had a strong reading year so far. I‘ve been quite busy this year and haven‘t read a lot of books that held my attention. Part of the reason is also because I‘ve been playing a lot of video games lately (assassins creed and sims4 mostly).

Hopefully a change in genre will kick me out of my #readingslump #mystery

keys_on_fire I have been in exactly the same boat. For some reason (pandemic maybe?), I have found it much harder to focus on reading. Playing games has been much more of an escape for me. Good luck! 2mo

Excellent! Spooky vibes. Kept me guessing 'til the end. 🕯🔮 🏚

I didn't love the resolutuon of the almost love story, but this isn't a romance and the author's decision made sense.

Fast-paced thriller. I would have liked a few more horror elements to it, but it was still an entertaining read.

If you've enjoyed other reads by this author you won't be disappointed, but this isn't my favorite.

A woman returns to the supposedly haunted house where her family spent a short time in her childhood. Her father made big profits off a supposedly true haunted house account. This is partly a spoof of the "true horror" genre, with alternating chapters of dad's cheesy, foreshadowing at the end of every chapter, book and daughter Maggie's experiences as she tries to get some closure on what exactly happened here and why her parents lie about it.

"????? ????? ??? ? ????? ?? ????. ????????? ???? ?? ?? ?????????."⁣

I really enjoyed this haunted house book. All of Riley Sager's books are easy reads, keeping me completely engaged the whole time. The endings always surprise me and the ending of this one was fantastic. Just creepy enough to be the perfect Halloween weekend read, but not too scary so I'll still be able to sleep tonight.

It was a real page turner..
But something about human behavior is way off here..

It reminds me of the trope where to get your inheritance you have to stay 1 night in a haunted house. But the MC already got inheritance and wtf is she doing there 🤣

Woman whose life was shaped around having grown up in The Most Haunted House in America attempts to renovate said murder house and discover the truth along the way.

Did not have time to get to Pretty Girls. Which is sad because #TeamSlaughter 🙈

In Progress: Home Before Dark is just started this morning, so doubtful that will be finished, but hoping to make a big dent in it. I-5 Killer has 4 hours left, maybe knock that out with some audio cleaning/audio cooking today. 🥧

Everything I finished was highly enjoyable.

Thanks for hosting @Andrew65

Wow, Riley Sager, really does a great job keeping his readers guessing, just when you think you have it figured out he throws a whole new wrench. Some small.chracter that as a reader I didn't think was important becomes vital to the whole story. Great Narration, really kept me engaged in the story.

🐍🐍🐍 And this is why I don't normally read this kind of Book especially before bedtime. Once I got past the snakes (in the light of day) I was hooked. Yes characters make a whole bunch of dumb mistakes based on assumptions but if you're into Haunted House stories you'll probably like this one.

I've had this book on my Nook since the day it came out last year. Just finished it today. I liked it quite a bit. Sort of retro redeemed himself after Survive the night. One thing that does slightly bug me is women characters. They are just a little off sometimes. Not a complete fool writing women but could use just some slight corrections

I read Final Girls back in the day and thought it was just ok, so I've never understood all the hype about Sager since. When I saw Home Before Dark available at my library I figured "what the hell, maybe it's time to try again". And while I still don't completely understand his rabid following, I thought it was pretty good! Solid suspense (but a bit too repetitive and drawn out) and an ending that I only partially worked out ahead of time / 3.5 ⭐️

Another Riley Sager book that I couldn‘t put down. Young married couple Ewan and Jess discover that a giant mansion Banebury House is priced way below its true value. The house has a history of murder and is supposedly haunted. They move in with their 5 year old daughter Maggie. Ewan writes a book about the haunted mansion that becomes a best seller, but Maggie and many others don‘t believe it‘s true.

If you loved The Amityville Horror (like I did) and if you‘ret also a fan of psychological thrillers with unpredictable twists then Home Before Dark is one to add to you TBR pile!

Part horror/ghost story, part mystery, part psychological thriller... Home Before Dark will have you guessing until the very end! 4.5 stars!

It's a thriller about a woman whose family fled a haunted house many years ago when she was a preschooler. When her father dies, she inherits the house and plans to find out how much of the story is true. It's okay, though I found the ending unsatisfying. Or maybe it's just me: I "read" this one on audiobook, so may have missed some important details.

This is a story of a house with long-buried secrets and Maggie Holt‘s quest to uncover them. 25 years ago she and her parents lived in Baneberry Hall but only stayed for 20 days. She soon finds out that the truth is more terrifying than any haunted house. This is a creepy Amityville Horror spine-chilling tale that switches from past and present. It is my first Riley Sager book but won‘t be my last.

Oh! Forgot to add this one to my March reads. It was good. I need to work out a star system.
Somehow. Or another I ended up reading a lot of Books Within Books last month.
This starts a la Amityville Horror, but quickly turns into something more.. I highly recommend it if you like a little tense reading.

I was pleasantly surprised by this. Enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. Compulsively readable, I really loved switching between the past and present events. I feel like the ending was a bit of a let down? Maybe? I‘m still sorting out how I feel regarding it. Overall it‘s a fun haunted house story and a fun mystery. Also,how did I not know this book glows in the dark?! Nearly scared me to death the other night. #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

Maggie Holt returns to Baneberry Hall to renovate and place it up for sale. The home that her family fled in the middle of the night out of fear for their safety,which was the basis for her father's book, House of Horrors.
As she renovated the house Maggie must find if the book her father wrote is based on fact or fiction as she struggles to recount any events in the book. But as she stays longer she finds that the past does come back to haunt.
