I wanted to like this more but both relationships are guilty of too little talking to each other to cause all the tension. The ghosts and haunting story is well done though! 10 points for on theme for #TeamStoker for #Scarathlon

I snagged this off Audible Escape mainly because Halloween is in the title. Unfortunately I am bailing on this one. It started well but I‘m just frustrated with the characters and their development. But hey a 5 point book about Halloween! #TeamStoker #Scarathlon

An excellent production of a so-so novella that predates Dracula. I am giving this a borderline pick as I enjoyed the plot and a lot of the gothic feel but not as much the melodramatic writing. A nice quick listen though! #horror #Scarathlon #TeamStoker 3 points!
