Red Rain – R L Stine

Honestly, I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am to read this book! I already have it on pre-order! R L Stine was one of my favourite authors as a child and I devoured his Goosebumps series, Fear Street series, Point Horror books and so on! And now here comes his venture into writing adult horror! I can’t wait and I hope it lives up to my expectations.

Plot: Travel writer Lea Sutter finds herself on a small island off the coast of South Carolina, the wrong place at the wrong time. A merciless, unanticipated hurricane cuts a path of destruction and Lea barely escapes with her life. In the storm’s aftermath, she discovers orphaned twin boys and impulsively decides to adopt them. The boys, Samuel and Daniel, seem amiable and immensely grateful; Lea’s family back on Long Island—husband Mark and their two children, Ira and Elena—aren’t quite so pleased. But even they can’t anticipate the twins’ true nature—or predict that, within a few weeks’ time, Mark will wind up implicated in two brutal murders, with the police narrowing in.

Fathomless – Jackson Pearce

I really enjoyed Jackson Pearce’s ‘Sisters Red’ and ‘Sweetly’, and I’m looking forward to reading this third and final instalment – which features mermaids!

Plot: Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant — until Celia meets Lo.
Lo doesn’t know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea — a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid — all terms too pretty for the soulless monster she knows she’s becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she’s tempted to embrace her dark immortality.
When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude’s affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there’s only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her . . . and steal his soul.

Too Good to be True: The Colossal Book of Urban Legends – Jan Harold Brunvand

I find urban legends really fascinating, and I love reading them and learning about how they originated! Jan Harold Brunvand has written some wonderful books on the subject before, and I hope this one is just as good!

    R.L.Stine is one of my favourite authors too, though I think I may have to skip Red Rain. Judging by the reviews this book received, many people were really disappointed. =[ I want to save my image of him so, as difficult as it may be, I’ll try to resist this one!

      I really hope I’m not disappointed. Have it read any reviews of it yet, as I don’t like my opinion to be influenced. I’ll let you know what I think when this is released! 🙂
