Do you remember reading Watery Grave Watery Grave (Twilight series) by Joseph Trainor , The Power The Power (Twilight Series No. 2) by Betsy Haynes , The Haunted Dollhouse The Haunted Dollhouse (Twilight series) by Susan Blake , Blink of the Mind Blink of the Mind (Twilight Series No 5) by Dorothy Brenner Francis , Family Crypt Family Crypt (Twilight #20) by Joseph Trainor and Voices in the Dark Voices in the Dark (Twilight Series) by James Haynes ? I think there were more titles, but I can't remember them; I know I read the entire series, though! And unfortunately they are now out of print. They were innocuous, thrilling, mystery, paranormal-type stories, but, looking back at the pictures of the covers, they do look pretty freaky!!

ilovebakedgoods (Teresa) (ilovebakedgoods) Ohhh, I don't think I read any of these but I wish I had!

Paty | 3 comments Loved loved loved this series!!! I gobbled them as soon as they hit the library. I remember Blood Red Roses...that was so not a young adult book!! It was creepy with a very disturbed sociopath singing as she killed people. I have never forgotten that one!!! Well, now it looks like I"m gonna have to find them for my collection. Thanx for the memories!!!

Oh my gosh, Paty, I totally forgot about Blood Red Roses until you mentioned it! And I also read the Dark Forces series, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember the name of it! So now I'll be on a goodreads/amazon/library finds/google search in to order to find the titles and authors to add to my Goodreads "YA read list"!
