+10 #teamstoker #scarathlon @TheReadingMermaid

First of all, the matte cover has a GLITTER SKULL on it. Glitter is my jam. Awesome surprise.

The book was...different? An illegal underground rave, drug addiction and the (glittery) murder of teenagers by someone or SOMETHING that stalks the subway tunnels of NYC. Mix in some unnecessary boy drama and an occasional eyeball and you've got this book. Not scary and no real resolution but a fun read.

1. Reese‘s peanut butter cups/ butterfinger/ snickers. Pretty much anything chocolate 🍫
2. Black licorice or raisins 👎
3. Watching scary movies is the only tradition that I‘ve done consistently since I was a little girl.
4. Dressing up for the Zombie Pub Crawl that we have in Minneapolis is the most fun that I‘ve had getting ready. It‘s also the most effort I‘ve put into a costume. Photo above.

This was surprisingly good for a book written after the movie was made. Perfect Halloween season read - even if you haven‘t seen the movie.

Book one in a vampire series. For me, the book was okay. I had a hard time getting into it because I didn't feel like the story was going anywhere. However from Reading other reviews, people have said if you read all the books the characters have a better Arc through all of them. Also you won't get a good ending from each book because it's meant to be read as a series.

Has anyone tried the company #blinddatewithabook? I've been wanting to order from them for a while, & a couple of weeks ago I finally did. I think I've found a new addiction! 😩 The international shipping was faster than expected, & the packaging is so perfect I almost don't want to open them!! I did a #Horror theme, & I'm sure there's bound to be a #Monster in this stack! #ScreamathonPhotoChallenge #Scarathlon #ChillingPhotoChallenge #TeamStoker

suvata I have ordered from them before and, yes, it is totally addictive. I think I still have three or four I haven‘t opened yet. They make great gifts too! 2h
lele1432 @suvata yes!! I'm thinking it could be great for swaps lol. As I've become addicted to those too. 😂 2h

Yet another meh book for this month. Took about 200 pages for anything even remotely creepy to happen. And even then it was angsty and dramatic to the point of being annoying and I just wanted to be done with it.

Thinking I'm gonna read this after I finish Grave Mercy. A scary book for Halloween!

"They called it the killing day. Twelve people dead, in the space of a few hours. Five murderers:neighbors, relatives, friends. All of them so normal. All of them seemingly harmless. All of them now dead by their own hand... except one. And that one has no answers to offer the shattered town. She doesn't even know why she killed - or whether she'll do it again."

I read this because it is considered a classic horror book and it is mentioned as a favorite of characters in many books I love. I kept waiting for that moment that everything falls apart and it gets wickedly scary, but it never came. It is hailed as, “a perfect work of unnerving terror” but seems to be more about mental illness and declining sanity.
