Halloween Recommendation: Part One

Say Her Name
Publication Date:  June 5th 2014        
Publisher: Hot Key Books
~A proof copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review~
Roberta 'Bobbie' Rowe is not the kind of person who believes in ghosts. A Halloween dare at her ridiculously spooky boarding school is no big deal, especially when her best friend Naya and cute local boy Caine agree to join in too. They are ordered to summon the legendary ghost of 'Bloody Mary': say her name five times in front of a candlelit mirror, and she shall appear... But, surprise surprise, nothing happens. Or does it?

Next morning, Bobbie finds a message on her bathroom mirror... five days... but what does it mean? And who left it there? Things get increasingly weird and more terrifying for Bobbie and Naya, until it becomes all too clear that Bloody Mary was indeed called from the afterlife that night, and she is definitely not a friendly ghost. Bobbie, Naya and Caine are now in a race against time before their five days are up and Mary comes for them, as she has come for countless others before... A truly spine-chilling yet witty horror from shortlisted 'Queen of Teen' author James Dawson


It takes a lot to scare me with books, whereas if I watch The Ring or anything to do with Bloody Mary, I won't look in a mirror for a week. Which you know, is bad form y hair, but anyway...I can probably count on two hands (probably less) how many YA Horror books have actually scared the crap out of me, not just gave me the creeps,  which I'm kind of sad about because I need more horror. I love scaring myself when it comes to books, the creepier the better, so up until Halloween, I'll be featuring the books that I shouldn't have read before bed.
