Posted this on Instagram but thought I‘d share here too! 13 books that kept me 13 nights in anticipation of Taylor Swift‘s new album Midnights dropping tonight.📚🎶😄 #booksandmusic #taylorswift #latenightreading

Linsy 4 of these I've read and LOVED. Thanks for the heads up about the album! I'm not very tuned in, but I always like to check out her new stuff. 1mo
MyNamesParadise Oh my goodness LOVE Taylor!! Very cool what you did with the books! 1mo
ICantImReading Oh I love this!! What a good idea! I‘m so excited for midnight! 😆 1mo

Are there ghosts in Baneberry Hall or not? Well this was all sorts of twisty creepy fun to find out. I liked the telling of the two storylines because I knew Maggie was okay (not the kids, not the kids!) 25 years after the family terror.

1. Both - - okay, maybe Thriller a tiny bit more.
2. Serial Killer
3. Tagged. I don't read many spooky books. Because I'm a scaredy cat. Another spooky book on my TBR: Sun Down Motel.

This has been my favorite Sager to read, horror and mystery all combine for a compelling story. I feel like there were still some questions I wanted answered at the end! 👻

Meh… I actually quite liked a lot of this, but the ending and being what it was. I wish it was different and I wish more thrillers would just let it actually be ghosts.

leau84x I loved this one...but I read it shortly after “Turn of the Key“ by Ruth Ware and got really frustrated with that ending. This one was infinitely stronger (to me), so I was really happy. That said, I totally understand where you're coming from, and it's totally fair. I really wish there were more legit haunted house stories out there too. 2mo

Absolutely loved it! Maggie inherits a haunted house with a dark and sinister history and goes on a mission to discover her own family history; was her family terrorised by ghosts when they lived there when she was a kid or did her Dad make it all up to make money? Such a great premise and the writing was engrossing and fully immersive. Can‘t wait to read more by this author.

squirrelbrain Sounds great! 3mo

I completely forgot to post this one the other day. I finished it while I was on a road trip this past weekend. This one is creepy! First time I‘ve read this author. Won‘t be the last. For those needing a creepy read for the fall reading challenge pick this one up! @Clwojick

I really liked this. I listened to the audio. I thought it was appropriately creepy! It went back and forth between Maggie‘s current day viewpoint and her father‘s viewpoint from the time to weave the story together.

Home Before Dark was a trip of a read! It did not read as a true horror book to me but it absolutely had the spine-tingling suspense that I was looking forward to. I had my ups and downs with Maggie and the story was a struggle at times because of the past-present transitions but, overall, Home Before Dark was an entertaining story.

1. Definitely 4 stars so far. I have about 50 pages left and it's scary! Do I still read before bed and have nightmares? Answer: I haven't learned my lesson and the nightmares have been insane.
2. The House in the Cerulean Sea 😍😍😍
3. My sister. She is my person.

Riley Sager had a formula that works for him. He is an author that I‘m okay with a formula. I loved this book. I loved the twists and I like the characters way more than the last Sager book I read. I feel like the relationships were deeper in this book. Like every other of his books, the last third or so was my favorite.

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

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! 12mo

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.
