#LetsGo #Scarathlon2021 #TeamSlaughter First Up! Riley Sager is a favorite author of mine. Having started with Lock Every Door, Then following up with The Final Girls. This year is the tagged book. I also have Survived The Night, we will see if I get to both his books this year. Maybe.
UPS is delivering supplies for Kitchen Remodel this afternoon. If I catch them as they‘re delivering I can have them put boxes in the garage.
So I'm tucked into the shade of front porch with #BooksandBrewsClub read for this weekend. I'm resourceful like that. 😉
I had no idea this horror/mystery glowed in the dark til I turned off my book light! This was pretty good for a mystery and average for a horror book. It wasn‘t very spooky and I feel he used an awful lot of material from Haunting of Hill House (at one point I felt like I was reading a novelization). But the mystery was good and it surprised me and it had spooky vibes. Not my favorite but I‘m glad I read it and learned the mystery behind it.
I finally read this since the new one is coming as a #BOTM add-on this month. Not my favorite Riley Sager (It‘s Lock Every Door) but I enjoyed this spooky house thriller. I think what I like most about Sager‘s books are that they take me back to the plots of horror film favorites from my youth. Definite Amityville Horror vibe for this one. 🖤I had the plot figured out but there were some twists & I did get creeped out reading it at night so 😱👍.
I was in a real reading slump and decided to pick this one off my shelf (had it since June just sitting there). Well, it was just what I needed!!! If you are looking for a (spooky) page turner - I highly recommend this one! Definitely in my top 10 favs!!
I am reading waaay too many books all at one time right now! Usually I am a one book at a time person and Litsy has totally changed my habit in the 11 months that I have been a Litten. Right now, I have 3 print books and 2 audiobooks going. And of course, they ALL have to be similar genres, just to keep me on my toes trying to keep the plots straight! 😂 #polygamousreader #monogamousreader
How many books do you usually read at one time?
An interesting take on the “haunted house” horror genre. Kind of an Amityville Horror meets Haunting of Hill House. There were things I liked, but this took me two digital library checkouts to finish, so overall didn‘t really grab my attention. Probably my least favorite of the Riley Sager thrillers I‘ve read. 2.5 ⭐️
I am a Riley Sager fan and love haunted house stories so it‘s no surprise I liked this!
Maggie doesn‘t remember much about living in a haunted house, but her whole life was shaped by “the Book” that her father wrote about their time there.
And yes, you get to read “the Book” (as this is a book within a book) while Maggie tries to understand what really happened.
So glad this got chosen for #LMPBC and it was also on my #NewYearWhoDis list!
Riley Sager has not yet disappointed me. I loved this book as much as every other book by him. It really is a twisty thriller with some haunted house vibes. There were parts that I felt my self getting a little creeped out and I did not put anything together before the end of the book. Loved this one!!
Finished Home Before Dark, my first Riley Sager novel. It was good, I'll definitely read another by this author. Up next - Old Man's War. Watched 2 of my favorite holiday movies this morning❤ Total points this week: 5,665 pts. inc. 4520 pts for the word search😁

Y‘all the cover glows in the dark!!!! That‘s a creepy thing to learn in the dark. 🤣 I‘m halfway through this book and I am crazy about it. Every bit of it.
*Maggie lives in a “haunted house” when she is 5. Her dad writes about their experiences and becomes a famous author because of it. Maggie, as an adult, believes it‘s all lies. An event occurs that has her back at her home seeking truth and finding out more than she bargained for.
I had a lot of fun with this one for #LMPBC. The spooks were fun. My only complaints had to do with a few plot elements that would be spoilers and the fact that the only “character” I was attached to was the house. However the author put a lot into the plot and story that had me hooked. This was a fun read!
Eeeeek! So excited for this one! One of my biggest regrets was not choosing this one for BOTM so I‘m excited to finally read it! Plus green is my fave color so I‘m excited to bust out one of my fave green pens 💚
I must share Riley Sager‘s fantastic response to this horrible person. 🙌🏻💚
Maggie Holt has just inherited the home her family abandoned and fled in the middle of the night when she was just 5. The same home her father profited off of by writing a sensational Amityville style ghost story about. Maggie doesn‘t remember anything about her life in the home, but she‘s determined to find out what really happened. She “🎵better beware, be canny and careful.🎶” An engrossing twisty dark read. I could hardly put it down.
This was my first read for December and it was so good. I was constantly guessing til the end which I very rare for me. If you haven't read this already I highly recommend you check it out if you like mystery, haunted houses, or ghost stories.

I read this between Nov 12 & 13. I gave it 3 ⭐️ but in some ways it feels more like a 2.5 star read. I have a long review on my Good Reads account. Sager is a decent writer with great ideas for a thrillers but by this point, his books are predictable and safe. There is always one too many twist and his heroines are flat and largely interchangeable.
I really wanted to like this one, and I did! For a while. And then I thought about it and I started to like it less and less. It‘s like a lesser Amityville Horror, which... fits. Not the worst, not the best, just so-so. Sufficiently spooky.
