Laurie   (barklesswagmore) | 504 comments We had two books win the poll for October so we'll be two doing book discussions! Who doesn't want to read more horror during the spookiest month, right?

This is the spot to chat about all things spoiler free regarding this book selection. You can read paper, audio - it does not matter!

Here's the blurb:
Beware of the woods and the dark, dank deep.

He’ll follow you home, and he won’t let you sleep.

Who are the Sawkill Girls?

Marion: the new girl. Awkward and plain, steady and dependable. Weighed down by tragedy and hungry for love she’s sure she’ll never find.

Zoey: the pariah. Luckless and lonely, hurting but hiding it. Aching with grief and dreaming of vanished girls. Maybe she’s broken—or maybe everyone else is.

Val: the queen bee. Gorgeous and privileged, ruthless and regal. Words like silk and eyes like knives, a heart made of secrets and a mouth full of lies.

Their stories come together on the island of Sawkill Rock, where gleaming horses graze in rolling pastures and cold waves crash against black cliffs. Where kids whisper the legend of an insidious monster at parties and around campfires.

Where girls have been disappearing for decades, stolen away by a ravenous evil no one has dared to fight… until now

I'll have to nag you, haha! Just kidding, of course. Join us if you can. I don't know how I'm going to handle both books. My brain might break!

destiny ♡⚔♡ [howling libraries] (howlinglibraries) | 47 comments I loved this book so much! One of my absolute favorite YA horror titles ever. I'm not gonna reread it yet but I am gonna stick around to see what you all think of it :) Unless I can get the audio from the library, in which case I might reread it.


Nicole | 1 comments If anyone has the option of doing the audio over the physical book, DO IT. The audiobook is SO creepy. I had to run to and from my car a few nights listening to it.

lunacat37 | 2 comments I have a few read alongs this month so I got a jumpstart on this book and I’m almost done. I really like it! It’s a fun, easy, creepy read


Latasha (latasha513) | 304 comments Me too Danielle. I have a lot to get through.


message 25: by Cristina (new) - added it

Cristina | 1 comments About 40 pages in; a slow start but I am trusting everyone's review of it being extra creepy. I am a believer that the creepiness will set in soon. When is the first discussion?


Kimberly (kimberly_3238) | 211 comments I just finished TEETH IN THE MISt, so I'm a little late starting this one, too. (But much better than last month's!)


Cécile | 56 comments I read it in july, and I must admit, I was a little disappointed. I don't remember very well the story so I can't really discuss it.
