Waiting on Wednesday: Return to the Dark House (Dark House #2) by Laurie Faria Stolarz

March 18, 2015 Uncategorized 60

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting. While I didn’t LOVE the first book in this series, Welcome to The Dark House, it was a reminder enough of a horror movie, and left off at such a cliffhanger, that I do need to read on in the series.  I would love to see the first one made into a horror movie though, I’d definitely go see it.  Here is the blurb for the sequel from Goodreads:

Ivy Jensen survived the Dark House once, but can she make it out a second time?

Two months have passed since Ivy narrowly escaped the Nightmare Elf’s grip, but the memories of Parker, Natalie, Shayla, Frankie, and Garth continue to haunt her. Their killer is still out there—somewhere. The police trail has gone cold, though, and it’s up to Ivy to piece together the clues to find him.

When a cryptic video arrives in her inbox, Ivy soon finds herself back in the spotlight, this time on a twisted scavenger hunt through the dark, ancient halls of a long-forgotten Gothic school building. Ivy’s not alone, either. Taylor Monroe has returned to the scene. But can Taylor be trusted? Or is she another pawn in the Nightmare Elf’s deadly game?

Definitely sounds like another scary story.  So what about you, what are you eagerly anticipating this week?

      It's definitely a creepy read! Totally like a horror movie. Not sure it is scary, more like the kind of predictable scary movies, but ones that are fun! Thanks for stopping by!

      I got to read an e-galley of the first one and thought it was pretty good, enough to want to read on. Thanks for stopping by! And you should pass that ARC on at the YA Book Exchange!

    I'm wondering if this series might be a little too creepy for me. I'm a wuss when it comes to scary stories, especially since I do most of my reading at night! LOL!

    I met Laurie Faria Stolarz at the Boston Teen Author Festival last year. I have been meaning to pick up this series since then!

    Oh, dear! Horror. I hate Horror .. okay, I don't actually hate it but I'm a easily scared person.I couldn't sleep for two nights after reading King's book (it's awesome though). Hope you enjoy it 😀 Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      We've needed some good horror for awhile. Although there have been a few out there once in awhile, like Gretchen McNeil. Thanks for visiting!
