Horror

Blood and Chocolate (by Annette Curtis Klause)

Rating 4

Reviewed by Chloe, grade 9

I gave this book four stars because it was very well written.  It could have had less kissing and lovie dovie moments and more action.  From the first page, the book captures me.  I highly recommend this book to those who love werewolves, love rivalries, battles, and devious plots to destroy someone. Happy reading!

I really enjoyed "Darkness Creeping", because I love scary stories.  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves really scary books.  This book was unique because It didn't have just one or two scary stories, it had 20 "Twisted Tales".  If you read this book, you are guaranteed to love it!

Dreams of the Dead (by Thomas Randall)

Rating 5

Reviewed by Lindsay, grade 7

I loved Dreams of the Dead because it is so horrific and, well... twisted.  I wouldn't dare hesitate to recommend this book to my friends.  I was so excited when I heard it was part of a series and I have read 2/3 of them.  If you do take my advice and you check out this amazing series, then I am very confident you will love and adore every word of it.

Eighth Grade Bites (by Heather Brewer)

Rating 4

Reviewed by Haley, grade 7

I would recommend this book because of the thought and overwhelming power it gave me.  I enjoyed this book because it was action packed and full of adventure.  Vlad really was a very interesting character that I grew to know throughout the book.  His secret crush just added to the excitment.  Henry Vlad friend through it all really supported Vlad (when he was around) and helped him through his struggles.  Otis Otis had a great twist on the story and I enjoyed it a lot.  in all I would recommend this book for someone sho loves a good story!

Project 17 (by Laurie Faria Stolarz)

Rating 4

Reviewed by Jennifer, grade 12

The basic plot of the book is 6 teens stay overnight in an abandoned assylum to film a documentary.   Rumor has it the place is haunted...  The story is told in first person alternating narrators; each of the main characters teels part of the story.  It does have a creepy feel, and while it ends alright, it isn't a true "happy" ending.  More like real life, it all work sout, but they don't all "live happily ever after".  One thing  I did not like was the language.  There was frequent cussing, which I found unnecessary.

Cryptic Cravings (by Ellen Schreiber)

Rating 4

Reviewed by Megan, grade 7

I highly recommend Cryptic Cravings for any Twilight or Vampire fans because in this book humans & immortals unite. 

I can relate to Raven, one of the characters in Cryptic Cravings, because she wants to be a vampire and live forever with her boyfriend, Alexander.

Everyone wants to live forever!

I enjoyed reading this book because in this book you feel like you know the characters by heart & are close to them.

Read the other Vamprie Kisses books first!
