Happy Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day 🙂 ) everyone!!!
It has been such a long time since I have done a book haul, so I decided to make a special one from the book-buying binge I splurged on this past weekend. Get ready for some fun reads that you can fall in love with too!
My Valentine Book Haul:
The Asylum Novellas by Madeleine Roux
“Three teens are pushed to the edge of their sanity in these chilling novellas set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Asylum series, featuring terrifying found photographs and a sneak peek at a new prequel novel, Escape from Asylum.
Before Dan, Abby, and Jordan ever stepped foot inside the Brookline asylum, its legacy of terror stretched far and deep. Enter the twisted world of the New York Times bestselling Asylum series with these three spine-tingling novellas starring supporting characters from the novels, available in a print bind-up for the first time.
In The Scarlets, Cal is drawn into New Hampshire College’s twisted secret society—one with a deadly initiation.
In The Bone Artists, Oliver tries to make a little extra money for college by working for a seedy organization that traffics in human bones.
In The Warden, a young nurse starts a new job at the Brookline asylum, but soon becomes suspicious of its unorthodox procedures.…
Be careful where you go digging in history. Sometimes the past is better off buried.
This edition also includes a bonus sneak peek at Escape from Asylum, a prequel to the mind-bending novel that started it all.”

Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker
“It’s an oppressively hot and sticky morning in June when Sterling and her brother, Phin, have an argument that compels him to run into the town swamp—the one that strikes fear in all the residents of Sticks, Louisiana. Phin doesn’t return. Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out, and now Sterling is the only person in Sticks who remembers her brother ever existed.
Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp’s done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance—and loner boy Heath Durham might be the only one who can help her.
This debut novel is full of atmosphere, twists and turns, and a swoon-worthy romance.”

The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie
“Something freaky’s going on with Sunshine’s new house . . . there’s the chill that wraps itself around her bones, the giggling she can hear in the dead of night, and then the strange shadows that lurk in her photographs. But the more weird stuff that happens, the less her mom believes her. Sunshine’s always had a quirky affiliation with the past, but this time, history is getting much too close for comfort . . .
If there is something, or someone, haunting her house, what do they want? And what will they do if Sunshine can’t help them?
As things become more frightening and dangerous, and the giggles she hears turn to sobs and screams, Sunshine has no choice but to accept what she is, face the test before her and save her mother from a fate worse than death.
The first in a frighteningly good new series based on the popular YouTube sensation The Haunting of Sunshine Girl Network, created by Paige McKenzie.”
