Down the TBR Hole #20



Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!

And thank the gods for that because I desperately need it! Lol. And thanks to Lost in a Story, as well, for creating this amazing meme!

Synopsis:

Lea Carson can't believe it when her family moves into the creepy, old house on Fear Street. Most creepy of all is the secret room up in the attic.

The room has been locked and boarded up for at least a hundred years. A murder was committed in that room, the story goes, and it has been closed up ever since.

Lea knows she should stay away. But she thinks she hears footsteps inside the secret room. And voices.

Someone—or something—is waiting for Lea in there.

Should she open the door?

Can she resist?

My rating: ★★★☆☆

Don’t open that door!

This book... it was... it was a book. One I didn’t enjoy too much, tbh. I liked the mystery behind the secret door and what was behind it, but we don’t really get to the door until the second half of the book. The first half of the book was full of romance I did not care about. And embarrassment, so much embarrassment...

Review: The Fire Game (Fear Street #11) by R.L. Stine

The Fire Game (Fear Street, #11)
Title: The Fire Game

Series: Fear Street #11

Author: R.L. Stine

Publication date: September 1996

Published by: Archway Paperback

Source: Purchased paperback

Add it on Goodreads

Buy it: Amazon | Thrift Books

Synopsis:

It was just a game...

The first fire started almost by accident. A wastebasket fire in the school library. Jill Franks and her friends found it exciting. And it got them out of school for a few hours.

Who could have guessed that the fire game would quickly spread? That one fire would lead to another? What Jill, and Andrea, and Diane, and the three boys they hung around with would find themselves caught up in the most dangerous—and deadly—game of all?

When one of their fires ends in murder, the game ends—and the real terror begins. All of them realize that someone is playing the game for keeps. Now Jill has no choice. She knows she must find the murderer—before her life goes up in flames!

My rating: ★★★☆☆

When you’re playing with fire, someone is bound to get burned...

This book starts off quite stupidly, actually. A group of friends are hanging out in the library when two of the boys start horsing around with some lighters. Diane starts “freaking out” and telling them to knock it off, but the others brush her off, thinking she’s just overreacting. Guys, NO! Diane may have a thing about fire, but the girl is right, you absolute morons! You guys are in a library, for crying out loud! And you’re playing with fire? Ugh! So you can imagine how this ends. One of the boys sets a folder on fire and Andrea quickly throws it in the trash, probably thinking it’ll go out. It doesn’t. The fire alarm goes off, they are pulled out of class, and the firemen come. And that is how the fire game starts. It’s so dumb, honestly.

You might never build a snowman again!

Synopsis:

It’s Thanksgiving and all Cassie wants to do is sit in her dorm room eating cheesy poofs and binge watching a Horror High marathon on HitFlix.

And just in time, too, seeing as a zombie outbreak is starting and Cassie has to decide which side to fight for: the good zombies… or the bad!

My rating: ★★★★☆

This was a very fun short story! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

So Cassie stayed at school for Thanksgiving and was just gonna watch Horror High on HitFlix (lol), which honestly sounds like something I would watch. Lol. But then one of the working zombies, Rex, shows up cleaning the dorms and Cassie decides to help him out because she is super bored. But as they finish off and go find some dinner, some non-friendly zombies run into them and Cassie finds herself fighting for her life.
