#ChillingPhotoChallenge #day14 #Poison Poison is used quite a lot in Dame Agathas work. The first book of hers I ever read when I was 11yrs old was Sparkling Cyanide in which a young wife is poisoned in her champagne at a dinner. There was also poison used in Five Little Pigs, Three Act Tragedy & Hickory Dickory Dock, just to name a few. This book is all about those poisons used. #Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter 1point #PointsTotal-461

The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel | Diane Setterfield
post image

#ChillingPhotoChallenge #day13 #TheNumber13 Do you know how hard it is to find a book with 13 in the title? Littens doing this challenge would I suppose. This is the only book in my rather large collection that did. This is along the lines of a gothic ghost story, an enigmatic writer decides to tell all about her secretive life & hires a young writer to put it down on paper. Gothicness ensues. #Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter 1point #PointsTotal-460

Clwojick I think i have 3 or 4 books on my shelf with 13 in the title. 😂 I guess it helps that i like long series though. ( James patterson, and janet evanovich, etc. ) (edited) 5h

This book gave me a love/hate relationship. I loved the story, it was everything a thriller should be minus a few small things. But that ending! The last few chapters! If it wasn‘t 2.30am, I‘d be insisting someone go hunt me down the 3rd book coz I‘m about to lose my damn mind. Who the hell is Sam Porter?? #thingsthatmakeyougoargggghhh! #Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter 2points +5from games +2 from #SSH #PointsTotal-459

Lizpixie Also it was the #ScaryScavengerHunt #WithANumberInTheTitle & #WhereACharacterDies so that‘s 2 more points I believe @Clwojick 13h
vivastory I was going to warn you about the cliffhanger. Hopefully you can get book 3 soon! 6h

My Mia Corvere plushie is keeping me company while I read the disturbing bits of this book. I‘ve just got past the part where he puts the FBI agents eye, ear & tongue in cutouts in the wall for his partner to find. Makes me so glad that serial killers are such a rare phenomenon in Australia. #catgotyourtongue?🙉🙈🙊🐒#Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter 1point #PointsTotal-450

Next in my #ScaryMovieMarathon is Winchester. This has a few things going for it, Helen Mirren & that I‘ve been fascinated with the story of the house since I first heard about it when I was a kid.

mrp27 I got to visit the Winchester house, located in Northern California, when I was teenager. It was so fascinating! During Halloween time they do night time spooky events but I'm way too chicken for that. (edited) 12h

Have been booted out of my nice warm bed so I‘m in my library with a blanket I got in my Finale box, a cup of Chamomile,Honey & Vanilla tea & the awesome follow up to The Fourth Monkey. I‘ve just been on my library‘s website to suggest buying the 3rd in the trilogy, The Sixth Wicked Child, this is so good! #Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter 1point #PointsTotal-437

Clwojick OKay! as of this post you are @ 437 points. That is including all of your comments on my games and all of your posts. For the “Finish my Phrase“ game, you got 5 right at 5points each, and 21 at 1 point each. You've done the best out of everyone on that game so far ! Keep it up! You're doing absolutely amazing. hope you're having fun! 😍 1d
Lizpixie @Clwojick I think the discrepancy was from the photo challenge posts. That‘s awesome about the Finish My Phrase! Most people probably weren‘t going very far down the list, I tend to dig a bit deeper. I‘m having a blast, I love Halloween!🎃 1d

2nd last in my #libraryhaul is the new thriller. Four people are on an elevator where ignoring the buttons they push, it goes to the top floor then plummets out of control, killing them. It appears to a random tragedy, until it happens again. And again. It brings Manhattan to its knees, people are terrorized, too scared to work or even live, even 911 calls go unanswered. It sounds terrifying! #Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter 1point #PointsTotal-416

It‘s 7.30am Saturday & I finished my book! Another enjoyable crime novel from Roberts, I particularly loved the setting of this. Not just a gorgeous old mansion, but one right on a Massachusetts beach. She has a gift for making her reader feel like they‘re there. Add in a lawyer accused of a murder he didn‘t commit, his free spirit housekeeper & a family mystery and it was perfect. #Scareathlon #TeamSlaughter 3points #PointsTotal-274

Lizpixie @ferskner it was about 10yrs ago now I think. Myself, my eldest daughter & son went on a lantern light tour of the Station. It was a smallish group & I was the last person crossing the yard in front of the hospital building which is one of those old buildings with a wraparound verandah & one story in front & two at back. I started hearing footsteps behind me & assumed there was a Parks employee joining us but I turned around & there was noone👇👇 6d
Lizpixie Thought I was hearing things so kept going, soon as I turned back, the footsteps started again, louder like boots then there was a swishing noise like a great coat makes when you walk fast. I bolted to catch up with the group & as I turned the corner of the verandah I spun around & took a picture with my phone. When we looked at it later it was all black except for a white outline right in the middle. And that wasn‘t the only thing that happened👇 6d
kamoorephoto SCARY and yet so cool. I twice worked on movies in previous psychiatric hospitals and holy crapazoid, I can not explain how CHILLING it felt to be on the property filming...especially when we made patient rooms look ‘lived in‘ again. I didn‘t want to be in the bathrooms alone either; it just felt like there was a presence. It was so eerie, and I‘m not usually scared very easily, honestly...!!! 😱 6d
Lizpixie It‘s built on a steep hill down to the water & when the tour finished at the shower blocks near the dock, my knees were so sore I couldn‘t make it back up so they told us to wait at the bend above the showers(which have the most awful atmosphere),till she could come back with the Ute. As we waited, on our own, at midnight, I swear I could feel eyes watching us, the kids could feel it too. By the time she got back we were in a huddle under 👇👇 6d
Lizpixie the streetlight. It felt like we were being surrounded by things that did not want us there. I don‘t know how people can sleep there, I‘d try if you paid me enough, but there‘d be no sleeping I can guarantee that!👻 6d
