It’s no secret that I’m kind of a paranormal/supernatural freak. I absolutely love horror movies, ghost stories and haunted houses. Yeah, I’m that girl. haha That being said, I often (maybe too often... lol) get in the mood for a good, scary read. This was obviously one of those times and the two books I chose were Project 17 and Bad Girls Don’t Die.
Project 17 by Laurie Faria Stolarz
If you were to take House on Haunted Hill and combine it with The Breakfast Club, Project 17 would undoubtedly be the outcome in book form (which is a good thing!). This story is told from alternating perspectives, giving you the chance to explore the asylum through the eyes each of the (very different) characters who have their own (also different) set of reasons for being there. Laurie really does have a talent for creepy writing and this book not only made me want to spend the night in a haunted place that much more (It’s on my bucket list!), but also made me even more eager to read her other popular series Blue Is For Nightmares, which I’ve heard a lot about and has been on my wish list for ages. She is definitely an author whose work seems to be consistently great, and I look forward to reading more of her books very soon!
Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender
Alexis is the girl I wish I was in high school. Sure, her tough, cool attitude and tongue in cheek sense of humor kept people away, leaving her friendless, but I loved that she was so sure of herself and confident, always speaking her mind. Definitely not what I was like a few years ago (which actually seems like forever ago!). I don’t wanna give anything away so I’ll just say: READ IT. You won’t be disappointed, I promise. And as if this book wasn’t enough to satisfy the paranormal lover in me, I just discovered it’s a 3-book series!
The Second book From Bad To Cursed will be released next spring! I am so excited.
