A gorgeously written yet slightly disappointing horror story, Ryan La
Sala’s The Honeys excels at prose and descriptive language but falls
flat at pacing. Mars is a genderfluid teenager who is trying to cope with
the terrifying death of their twin sister, Caroline. In an attempt to
decipher the circumstances around her death, Mars decides to return to
Aspen Conservancy Summer Academy, a beautiful summer camp with a group of

It Looks Like Us by Alison Ames is a modern retelling of the horror
classic, The Thing, yet it still manages to feel as fresh and biting as
its predecessors. The story, similar to the 1982 film, takes place in the
Antarctic and is centered around a research team who come in contact with
a shapeshifting, otherworldly monster. A group consisting of five

In the weird fiction novel The Dunwich Horror, H.P. Lovecraft details the blasphemous
occurrences that resulted in an incident known as The Dunwich Horror. The travesty began with
“hideous screams” that signaled the birth of Wilbur Whateley, a brilliant but grotesque child
(Lovecraft 143). Wilbur, alongside his grandfather, took part in strange rituals that caused the
hills to shake and inspired hatred and fear in living. However, his search for blasphemous

Scream

Like all the other Screams, the 2022 version definitely lives up to the hype with tons of humor
and scary moments to keep the viewer on the edge of their seat. Not to mention, Actors: Neve
Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette returning to their iconic roles in Scream to deliver
another great sequel. That being said, nothing beats the 1996 Scream nor its originality, as I
wouldn’t say Scream 5 was necessarily needed but cool nonetheless.

My rating for this book is a 4 because the book is pretty good but I don't really like the "horror" part of it.

Summary:

This is about a girl named Barbra Gordan. She was shot and is paralyzed from her hips down. She is admitted into a rehab facility which is pretty suspicious. She can hear voices in the walls and once patients start going missing she starts investigating.

Lock Every Door is an exceptionally written horror/thriller novel. Riley Sager is very well known for writing thriller books, and this might just be one of the best written books by Riley. The storyline of the book is very interesting since it gives you insight on multiple characters’ perspectives. You not only get to feel what all the characters are feeling, but you also get an insight into their lives and how each character is so vastly different than the other.
