Monsterland by Michael Okon

Welcome to Monsterland, the scariest place on earth.

When world markets are decimated by a crippling plague, philanthropist, and billionaire businessman, Vincent Konrad decides to place monsters in a theme park setting to promote education and tolerance. Copper Valley is chosen as the primary site for the park in the United States.

Wyatt Baldwin, a high school senior is dying to go to the opening and when he lands special passes to the park, he and his friends are expecting the experience of a lifetime.

After all, in a theme park where real zombies, werewolves, and vampires are the main attractions, what could possibly go wrong?


Billy tore through the brush, thorns ripping his fur, and in his adrenaline rush , he didn't feel anything. He glanced backward; the humans were chasing him, one running with a huge camera. Nine other hunters followed, the long barrels of their rifles bearing down on them. 


The Missing Season
The Missing Season by Gillian French 

Whenever another kid goes missing in October, the Pender kids know what is really behind it: a horrific monster out in the marshes they have named the Mumbler.
That’s what Clara’s new crew tells her when she moves to town: Bree and Sage, who take her under their wing; spirited Trace, who has taken the lead on this year’s Halloween prank war; and magnetic Kincaid, whose devil-may-care attitude and air of mystery are impossible for Clara to resist.
Clara doesn’t actually believe in the Mumbler. But as Halloween gets closer and tensions build in the town, it’s hard to shake the feeling that there really is something dark and dangerous in Pender, lurking in the shadows, waiting to bring the stories to life.


We walk the trail three abreast, hands in our pockets, footsteps crunching. It's dark here, patches of fading daylight showing through branches like cutouts in a black valentine doily.

  1. The Missing Season does look like a good book! I love a good thriller and mystery and it gives a very dark vibe which I always pitch for so might add this to my TBR :)
