WWW Wednesday: What Am I Reading? #AmReading

Two weeks ago I was on a sci-fi streak. This time it’s horror and psychological thrillers.

I’m about 25% through Sundial by Catriona Ward – the same author who wrote the dark, shocking House on Needless Street. This one is shaping up to be just as bizarre.

Sundial is a new, twisty psychological horror novel from Catriona Ward, internationally bestselling author of The Last House on Needless Street.

You can’t escape what’s in your blood…

All Rob wanted was a normal life. She almost got it, too: a husband, two kids, a nice house in the suburbs. But Rob fears for her oldest daughter, Callie, who collects tiny bones and whispers to imaginary friends. Rob sees a darkness in Callie, one that reminds her too much of the family she left behind.

She decides to take Callie back to her childhood home, to Sundial, deep in the Mojave Desert. And there she will have to make a terrible choice.

Callie is worried about her mother. Rob has begun to look at her strangely, and speaks of past secrets. And Callie fears that only one of them will leave Sundial alive…

The mother and daughter embark on a dark, desert journey to the past in the hopes of redeeming their future.

Over the weekend I finished Horror Hotel. Teen ghost hunters spending the night in a haunted hotel? I’m a sucker for books like this, and it was a totally fun, spooky read. Incredible imagery, and what a cover!

This addictive YA horror about a group of teen ghost hunters who spend the night in a haunted LA hotel is The Blair Witch Project for the TikTok generation.

When the YouTube-famous Ghost Gang—Chrissy, Chase, Emma, and Kiki—visit a haunted LA hotel notorious for tragedy to secretly film after dark, they expect it to be just like their previous paranormal huntings. Spooky enough to attract subscribers—and ultimately harmless.

But when they stumble upon something unexpected in the former room of a gruesome serial killer, they quickly realize that they’re in over their heads.

Sometimes, it’s the dead who need our help—and the living we should fear.

It was the cover of Lock the Doors that grabbed my attention, and I liked the idea of a dream home not being what it seems on the outside. Reviews have been good for this thriller.

A brand new addictive, twisty thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of 14 WAYS TO DIE.

Tom’s family have moved into their dream home. But pretty soon he starts to notice that something is very wrong – there are strange messages written on the wall and locks on the bedroom doors. On the OUTSIDE.

The previous owners have moved just across the road and they seem like the perfect family. Their daughter Amy is beautiful and enigmatic but Tom is sure she’s got something to hide. And he isn’t going to stop until he finds the truth behind those locked doors. . .

Will their dream home become a nightmare?

    1. I’d recommend Horror Hotel for fans of Ghost Hunters and 80s slasher films. It was a really fun read, a little bloody, but not bad for readers who don’t usually read horror. Thanks for stopping by, Laurel-Rain!

  1. I got Sundial but I debated it for such a long time. I thought her first book was utterly ingenious but it was such an intense read and I didn’t know if I wanted to go through that again. I’ll just have to get myself in the right mood. Look forward to your thoughts on it.
