Synopsis for The Eyes That Moved

Kendra Merrick has a knack for spotting unusual trinkets and treasures, and she isn’t afraid of using unconventional—or illegal—methods to obtain them. When she meets Adam, a fellow sleuth and collector, they embark on their biggest adventure yet: the Whitson house. The house is a marvel, and its secrets are even stranger than she imagined.

Kendra stumbles upon the find of a lifetime. But she may have signed on for more than she bargained. There’s a darkness in the house that wasn’t there before, a pair of eyes in every corner, watching, waiting. And Adam isn’t at all who he claimed to be.

In this chilling tale with a unique twist on paranormal horror, one girl learns just how deadly porcelain dolls can be.

Review for The Eyes That Moved

I absolutely loved the book. It almost reminded me of an episode of Charmed. I cannot go into details without giving away the ending of the book. I do find certain dolls creepy, as I have had a few issues with dolls lol. For instance, I hate Cabbage Patch Kids, every time I got one as a gift, it stayed in my closet. I got this doll from church as a gag gift (it has been passed around each year as a joke), and it had a wind-up in its back. That thing would play music and move even though no one touched it. So yeah, I found this book quite creepy. A short story that packs a punch. While walking through the house, you are feeling intense, and when they see the room with the dolls, it gives off a creepy feeling altogether. If you are scared of dolls, but don’t mind a scary story with dolls, I definitely recommend this book!

My Review for The Living Dead Boy

I have mentioned before that I am not a big fan of zombies, but I wanted to include it in the month of October. When I was looking for books, just the title got me hooked. I loved the fact that the heroes were kids. See it from their perspective, and witness their fear, and understand their way of thinking during a zombie apocalypse is great!
