Shadeslayer Pina | 11 comments All i remember There was a well or a hole and it had a vast amount of water in it. In the water were monsters. A raft type boat was on the surface of that water and a boy on it fell off. As soon as his blood hit the water alll the monster knew him. Like knew him specifically. His name his everything.

The cover of the book looked to have monsters on it. A light tan and greenish yellow tint. I cant give vast information about it cause i do not remember it well but as much as i can remember.This was either in middle or intermediate school but a little bit older age group.

Shadeslayer, I added a bit of info to your heading. You'll get more attention that way, since many of our members only read the threads that they think they have a chance to ID. And they many times won't read a thread where there is no info on the book being searched for.

NaanBaka | 31 comments Could it possibly be one of the Demonata novels by Darren Shan? I haven't read most of them, but it might be one of them. Here are a few covers that match your description a bit.

Slawter (The Demonata, #3) by Darren Shan Demon Apocalypse (The Demonata, #6) by Darren Shan Hell's Heroes (The Demonata, #10) by Darren Shan

And here's a list of the books in the series.

Kimber (kimberlibri) | 158 comments Eva Ibbotson, the author of The Secret of Platform 13, also has put out some box sets. Eva Ibbotson 3-in-1: Which Witch?, The Secret of Platform 13 & Island of the Aunts might be the 'more than one book' you are looking for.

SummerLily | 20 comments This reminds me of a book I read a while ago, I can't remember the title at the moment but I can probably find it...
The title had a well in it, also I know it had a different title in the UK than in America.
There was something about abandoned shopping carts and some kids find an abandoned wishing well but they start being haunted by various monsters/ the witch/ god that inhabits the well. I know that at one point the boy falls in. It was pretty creepy, lots of unsettling imagery.
Could this be it?

SummerLily | 20 comments Got the one I was talking about! Well Witched in the Us, or Verdigris Deep in the UK, by Frances Hardinge.https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Not sure if it matches your description though!!
