2.Welcome to Camp Nightmare by R.L. Stine
Listened to this on audio book with my son. The story is pretty great. It’s a typical scary camp story. I remember I owned this one as a kid, but couldn’t remember how it ended. Of course, there’s a insane twist ending. I just love these books. I gave this 3.5 stars.

6.November Snow by Shannon A. Thompson
First of all a huge thanks to the author for providing me with the copy of the book. November Snow takes off from where the first part – November Rain – has ended. T he second book has a lot more action, twists and turns making it an amazing finale. My heart broke in the end but I loved every minute of this book. I warn you, you will need an abundance of tissues at your disposal. I strongly recommend this book to anyone. I gave this 5 Stars.

8.Shiver By Maggie Steifvater
So as a big fan of Stiefvater’s ‘Raven Cycle’ series, I was really expecting to love this book,I liked it, but it wasn’t amazing. I am just so torn on rating this book. Maggie Steifvater’s writing is so vivid and poetic. It’s why I love her writing style.I really liked the werewolf concept in this book. Werewolves are no supernatural creatures with inhuman strength; they are simply normal wolves. Similar to a sort of illness that comes with the lowering of temperatures and being unable to remember your human life. I also have to mention the romance. It was a little too insta-love for me. I gave this a 3.5 Stars.

9.The Uninvited by Cat Winters

Haunting, beautiful.. I could go on;-) This was my first Cat Winters book but it wont be my last. While the romance is a major factor in the story, it also touches on the more serious aspects of the time. The racism, the hatred, the narrow-mindedness, the deaths and the rise of jazz. I absolutely loved this book. Major plot twist, I thought I had guessed at it but I was only partly right and the rest of it blew me away.

10.The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand
The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls is Claire Legrand’s debut novel. I LOVED IT! Ohmygod! so much creepy, I love it! All you Coraline fans out there, I found the next level. And has a protagonist with OCD and anxiety who manages to use her OCD as a tool to help fight evil compulsion spells. The art in this book., its beautiful. All the little designs, the bugs on the pages the illustrations fit the story perfectly.

    School starts back up for me towards the end of August as well, though I’ve only had two months break. But I took a 4 year break after my kiddos were born, so I feel for you! What are you studying?

    I read the Shiver trilogy before Raven Kings. Loved the Shiver series and fell in love with Stiefvater through those books, but I agree that Raven Kings is better.

    And I hope to start the third book in GOT before the end of the year. Do you watch the show at all?

    I’m so excited to be able to go back and re-read some books from when I was a kid once my daughter is old enough. I definitely loved some Goosebumps and want to revisit some of those!

    Good luck heading back to school! How exciting!
