13 Nights of Haunted Reads - Part Eleven


Night eleven is here! For the rest of this series I am going to switch it up a little. I'm going to share some books that I have in my TBR pile. If you want to learn more about each one just click on the cover.

 

In The Scrape By James Newman and Mark Steensland Genre: Occult Horror Most kids dream about a new bike, a pair of top-dollar sneakers endorsed by their favorite athlete, or that totally awesome videogame everyone’s raving about. But thirteen-year-old Jake and his little brother Matthew want nothing more than to escape from their abusive father. As soon as possible, they plan to run away to California, where they will reunite with their mother and live happily ever after. It won’t be easy, though. After a scuffle with a local bully puts Jake’s arch-nemesis in the hospital, Sheriff Theresa McLelland starts poking her nose into their feud. During a trip to the family cabin for the opening weekend of deer-hunting season, Jake and Matthew kick their plan into action, leaving Dad tied to a chair as they flee into the night. Meanwhile, the bully and his father have their own plans for revenge, and the events to follow will forever change the lives of everyone involved . . .

 

Autumn Bleeds Into Winter By Jeff Strand Genre: Horror Suspense Somebody has been abducting children in Fairbanks, Alaska. One of the victims was fourteen-year-old Curtis Black's best friend Todd.


Curtis saw it happen. He knows exactly who did it.


But he can't prove that it was his neighbor Gerald Martin. The authorities find no evidence of the crime. There's nothing they can do.


So he's going to confront Mr. Martin himself.


And this is just the beginning of the terrifying story…


From the author of PRESSURE and MY PRETTIES comes a nerve-wracking coming-of-age thriller.

 

Vegan By Erin Lee Genre: Occult Horror Every tribe has its codes. But rules are meant to be broken.


The Ten Golden Rules: They are simple.


Do not mistake humble for weak, nor meek for frail.

Don’t confuse empathy with stupidity, or honesty with foolhardiness.

At no time underestimate the power of gratitude.

Always be appreciative and sincere.

Forever hold true the virtues of integrity and patience.

Never assume.


***


The Ten Rules of Karma: They are certain.


Expectations based on pretenses often come with a price tag too high for even the loftiest of egos. Arrogance is certain to find its way back to powerlessness.

Those who put themselves first always die unaided, afraid, and eventually overlooked.

Honor comes not with manipulation or forced servitude.

What you give is what you receive tenfold.

Truth is in action and intention alone.

The Word:

The meek shall inherit the earth.

Or so they said…


What would you do to save the one you love?

 

Madman Across The Water By Caroline Angel


For generations one family has been haunted by something... something that stalks. It sees and listens, it watches and follows. In the shadows and mist it waits, to take you, to hurt you, perhaps to kill you. If it doesn't kill you, you'll wish it did. A creepy, suspenseful saga of family, horror, and mystery, this is one story sure to leave you frightened of the woods at night, fog, and all things tall and slender.
