A collection of spookiness ranging from ghosts to cryptids, and all sorts of mysterious happenstance throughout history. Lots of gorey medical details as well. Fun stuff!

#teamstoker #scarathlon @thereadingmermaid

For Halloween 2010 I was a bag of beef jerky. I was working at a call center and this stuff was like manna for my training class. We were obsessed with the stuff and as a group would go through several bags a day. So when they announced the company wide costume contest I knew what needed to happen. Not everyone got it so I didn't win but for those in the know it was a BIG HIT.

TheReadingMermaid Haha that is great! 50 points!!! 🧟‍♀️ 11h

Kate L Mary's Broken and Twisted World series' are my absolute favorite books in the zombie genre, so I was so excited to revisit her world. This one takes place around the same time as the end of the Broken series, and revisits some characters made familiar in the 'Broken Stories' prequel. I loved seeing how those characters have grown and adapted over the years. Can't wait to continue this series!

Almost 4 solid stars. Like 3.825 stars.

Grimm and fantastical. Dark and moody but not scary, just a little edgy. It felt like an Unseelie story without any fae. A slow burn but a quick read.

Monsters from the wood have taken Skye's sister Deirdre and it's up to her to slay the beast and rescue the maiden. No matter who or what she has to sacrifice along the way.

It's Halloween! Amy is coming over to get ready to party with me! Satina helped us paint pumpkins,& now she & I are going to put them on the porch. We are full after eating Sonic corndogs,& are ready to go now! Mom told us to watch out for the crackhouse down the street bc it is scary with roach nests & broken needles. It's the house where hookers & druggies live! But I'm not about that life. Happy Halloween to everyone from Miss Goodie Two Shoes!

Meh. Kind of a substandard zombie book. A lot of focus on the politics and the diabolic nature of the the shadow group behind the creation of the virus. It's a pretty dry read and not very character driven. Not my cuppa.

The House | Christina Lauren

If AHS was a YA book it would be this one. I can just see Evan Peters as Gavin! I don't know if this is way underhyped or I just missed it but I don't know how I've been sleeping on it!

Gavin has been raised by his house his entire life. It loves him & provides for him & keeps him safe. They're family. So it never occurs to him that House won't like his new girlfriend, or that it will go to extremes to keep him home, alone, where he belongs.

"If you hunt for monsters, you'll find them." That's all six year old Stella said when they found her, her best friend Jeanie still missing. 11 years later she still can't remember what happened that day & the town won't let her forget. On the anniversary of that day the body of another young girl washes up, leaving Stella desperate to recall what happened then and how it's happening again.

Whomp-whomp. The best thing about this book is that its over. Flat, amateur writing filled with inconsistencies. Who forgets their cellphone at home but conveniently has a phone card & finds a working payphone to use it at? And there is no way that any police force is going to invite someone to help them investigate a murder of someone found in their home. A book about witches who do almost no magic.

With witches, vampires, voodoo magic and pirates this book weaves a tapestry of New Orleans history and lore. When Adele returns home after a huge storm has devastated the city she finds an eerily quiet ruin of it's former self. As she rebuilds her life she discovers magic she didn't know she had and finds herself caught in a centuries old battle between witches & vamps that culminates on Halloween.

This was a super fun read. I adore the quirkiness in the pages.Varying fonts, backward text, wicked illustrations, creative spacing and black pages really add excitement to this book. A twisty telling of Faust, and the repercussions of his deal over generations told from alternating perspectives of girls who find themselves at a mountain home known as Mill House in the 16th,19th and 21st centuries.

For nearly the first 200 pages of this book I totally hated it. I kept pushing through because it is such a unique perspective on an apocalyptic/zombie/extinction tale but it was an absolute chore. Toward the end I did start to enjoy it more but I think this is just one of those books that you either love or loathe. There is some beautiful brilliant writing happening here but it just wasn't for me.

A cool modern interpretation of Salem witches that you don't see much, I think bc authors don't want to go against tradition & history. This was a good intro to a new world but there is a problem thats hard to get past, constant references to a pretty big occurence in NYC way b4 this book takes place made it feel like a sequel. Still a good read with diverse & believable characters. I do recommend.

Holy Cow. I loved the 1st book The Wendy, but y'all The Navigator blows it out of the water. Cannon pun fully intended. It picks up where the first left off, sailing headlong into adventure.Neverland was more magical than I hoped. Loved the backstory of Peter & the island & the details of how things work & the how it provides a safe haven for those in need! I'm still loving how nothings as you expect. Such an excellent interpretation of a classic.

Butterfinger That cover is fascinating. I went to stack it, but it must not be in the system yet. Have you read Peter and the Starcatchers? That name may be off. Its been a long time since I read it. 2w
xxjenadanxx @Butterfinger it isn't in the system yet, this is an ARC! But the first one might be, it's called The Wendy. I HIGHLY recommend this series. This one comes out in just a couple days. I haven't read it, or heard of it! Sounds cool though, I'll look into it. 2w

#scarathlon #scaryscavengerhunt @TheReadingMermaid
+6 points for #teamstoker (5 for Halloween related book and 1 for scavenger hunt, using this one for 2 prompts, about Halloween and Pumpkin on the cover)

This is a mid-grade book about a group of boys who go trick or treating and find adventure. When their friend goes missing they set out on a journey through space and time to find him while exploring the history behind their chosen costumes.

TheReadingMermaid The scavenger hunt does not have a point system on it. But if you finish all of the prompts you get entered to win a special prize. So for this post you're scoring will be 5 points for the book and one extra point for the post. 😉 🧟‍♀️ 2w
