Happy early Halloween everyone! It’s Kate’s favorite season of the year, so naturally we had to celebrate this time of scares and spooks by hosting a giveaway of two deliciously creepy reads, “The Devils You Know” and “Ghoster.” Kate’s review for the latter, “Ghoster,” comes out tomorrow, so check that out as well. Make sure you have a bucket full of candy (to “give to the kids” naturally) on hand and sink into a cozy chair with all the lights on to read these two!
“The Devils You Know” by M. C. Atwood
Publication Info: Soho Teen, October 2017
Book Description: Plenty of legends surround the infamous Boulder House in Whispering Bluffs, Wisconsin, but nobody takes them seriously. Certainly nobody believes that the original owner, Maxwell Cartwright Jr., cursed its construction—or that a murder of crows died upon its completion, their carcasses turning the land black. If anyone did believe it all, there’s no way River Red High would offer a field trip there for the senior class.
Five very different seniors on the trip—Violet, Paul, Ashley, Dylan, and Gretchen—have reasons beyond school spirit for not ditching the trip. When they’re separated from the group, they discover that what lies within Boulder House is far more horrifying than any local folklore. To survive, they’ll have to band together in ways they never could have imagined and ultimately confront the truths of their darkest selves.
“Ghoster” by Jason Arnopp
Publication Info: Orbit, October 2019
Book Description: Kate Collins has been ghosted.
She was supposed to be moving in with her new boyfriend Scott, but all she finds after relocating to Brighton is an empty apartment. Scott has vanished. His possessions have all disappeared.
Except for his mobile phone.
Kate knows she shouldn’t hack into Scott’s phone. She shouldn’t look at his Tinder, his calls, his social media. But she can’t quite help herself.That’s when the trouble starts. Strange, whispering phone calls from numbers she doesn’t recognize. Scratch marks on the walls that she can’t explain. And the growing feeling that she’s being watched.
Kate refuses to leave the apartment – she’s not going anywhere until she’s discovered what happened to Scott. But the deeper she dives into Scott’s digital history the more Kate realizes just how little she really knows about the man she loves.
Giveaway Details: Giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and runs through Sunday, October 27, 2019.
