I was SO EXCITED when I saw this sequel was coming out because I fucking LOVED the first book (check out my review for it here). Who doesn’t want to read a slasher featuring teenagers, clowns, cornfields, and a small-town gone mad trying to get revenge? Clown in a Cornfield 2: Frendo Lives, just like the first, would make a perfect slasher flick, and I hope the series gets picked up for film.Continue reading

Who else is excited for all of the amazing new books that are coming out this spring and summer? Every day I find new titles on Twitter and Instagram that I immediately add to my Goodreads list, and I can ~hear~ my bank account groan.

Review: Clown in a Cornfield
“Quinn Maybrook just wants to make it until graduation. She might not make it to morning.”
When I first heard about Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare, I had two immediate thoughts: 1) this book is going to be terrifying, and 2) I absolutely had to read it. Needless to say, I was over the moon when I received an early digital copy, and friends, it did not disappoint.
Review: Ghost Wood Song
“I’ve lived with ghosts my whole life, but this is the first time I’ve ever felt haunted.”
Every time I read a creepy book set in the woods, I think to myself, “this is it, this is the last time I read a book set in the woods!” And yet, as soon as I see another story with an eerie forest setting, I toss everything aside and run straight for it. That’s exactly what happened with Ghost Wood Song by Erica Waters, and while my sleep schedule might regret it, the rest of me does not.
Review: The Bone Houses
“The dead deserve something,” she said, trying to explain in a way a layman might understand. “A remembrance, a marker, a place to rest. Death should be peaceful—the dead have earned that much. The bone houses—they’re a mockery of death. Burning them . . . it’s a last resort, not a way out.”
If you’re in the market for a beautifully written, atmospheric story to get you in the mood for autumn, look no further: The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones is one you won’t want to miss.
Review: Rules for Vanishing
“Do you want to know where Lucy went? She went to play the game. You can play, too. Find a partner. Find a key. Find the road. You have two days.”
What would you do if your entire school received the same ominous text message? I’d probably go home and hide in my room until people stopped talking about it, but the characters in Rules for Vanishing aren’t afraid of much, and decide to play this eerie game.
Review: Last Things
“I can see the dark things. They’re trying to hide, but I can spot them, hunched behind corners, pressed against walls. Shadows where there is no one to cast shadows. Nobody’s shadow would look like that anyway. Warped. Bony. Bent almost like branches. They are waiting. I can feel them. And they can feel me pushing back.”
