My Halloween Favorites!

Rachel here! One of my favorite things about Halloween is the spookiness. It's perfect to curl up with a good paranormal. Here are some of my favorite halloween creeps.

First up,

Forensic Mystery (series) by Alane Ferguson –

It’s about a girl named Cammie. She’s the coroner’s assistant…and she solves lots of creepy mysteries (thus the name…)I’m not going to go into all of these (you can read my review for that *hint, hint, wink, wink*) but it will literally give you CHILLS. Creepy. I hear the author is thinking about writing more, I hope she does. Whatever you do don’t  read these in the dark. I did. It adds to the atmosphere….

No! not the ozone, I’m talking about the…aura, the fuzzy feeling...etc.. J


This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel

It’s the prequel to Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ how cool is that? You get to experience Dr. Victor Frankenstein’s teen adventure…and learn the truth behind his madness. It was an amazing story. You’ll never regret reading it.

And Last but not least – Dark Eden by Patrick Carman

I’m going to go more into this one, because the giveaway is related to it.

In fact  This is my review:

My Synopsis:

The last thing Will Besting wanted to do, was be stuck on a bus with six other teenagers. They all had one thing in common: fear. They were all sent by Dr. Stevens to do the impossible, cure their fears. Dr Stevens had said she knew a man who could cure their fears. As they are told to go into the forest, Will follows his instincts. He runs. He observes what goes on in this ‘therapy camp’, Dark Eden, from afar and knows one thing. Things aren’t what they seem. They aren’t going after their fears, their fears are going after them. As Will listens, one question haunts his mind. Can they cure their fears, or is fear the cure?

My Opinion:

Woah. Seriously.

This book is amazing (that word seriously does not do it justice.) *grabs thesaurus*

This book is astounding. Patrick Carman’s ‘'Skeleton Creek'’ is amazing, but I feel that this book is his best. Ever (although, I haven’t read all his books yet.) It blew the hinges off my door of expectations (no joke.) After months of anticipation, I looked at the book before me and wondered if maybe my expectations were too high.

*snorts* yeah, right.

 If you read one book this year, this should be it. Will grabbed my attention and more importantly, my emotions. As Will tells his tale you become mesmerized in something so.......…relatable and at the same time, otherworldy. As he laughs you laugh and as his heart breaks, yours breaks too. That was just so…...masterful. Perfect. Not to mention, this book had more twists in it than a stick of licorice. I cannot wait for the next installment.  For all you who want to know the ‘'negatives’': two cuss words. It didn't bother me. For all you tech/new wave people out there, the story is also told in app form. It adds to the creep factor…I half hide while watching them…..


Everyone loves giveaways right?

I will be giving away a mini-Dark Eden fan pack. It’ll have a temporary tattoo, a Fear Test CD and a Dark Eden Lanyard….and, some cool little extras for a friend. Including my own personal guide to throwing a (easy) harry potter party.  

How does that sound? *imaginary croud cheers* Excellent…  J
