Young Adult

Wild Is the WitchWild Is the Witch by Rachel Griffin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A really fun nature, witchy book. Slight romance and the stakes were really high, so the pages were turning!

How to Sell a Haunted HouseHow to Sell a Haunted House by Grady Hendrix
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Grady Hendrix writes great horror and I thought this one was very spooky! Puppets? So terrifying. I also liked the overall plot and how the relationship between the brother and the sister evolved and changed. It was a little long and I did find myself just wanting to end it, but overall a good scary read.
