Last year, me and three of my dear friends (Amy, Jen, & Chelsea) did a readalong in October called FridayFrightAThon, where we pick a new spooky book to read with the community each Friday in the month! We loved it so much, and we hope you loved it so much, so we decided to do it again with four new books in 2019! 👻
➽ American Predator by Maureen Callahan
“When journalist Maureen Callahan first heard about Israel Keyes in 2012, she was captivated by how a killer of this magnitude could go undetected by law enforcement for over a decade. And so began a project that consumed her for the next several years–uncovering the true story behind how the FBI ultimately caught Israel Keyes, and trying to understand what it means for a killer like Keyes to exist. A killer who left a path of monstrous, randomly committed crimes in his wake–many of which remain unsolved to this day.”
➽ The Whisper Man by Alex North
“After the sudden death of his wife, Tom Kennedy believes a fresh start will help him and his young son Jake heal. A new beginning, a new house, a new town. Featherbank. But the town has a dark past. Twenty years ago, a serial killer abducted and murdered five residents. Until Frank Carter was finally caught, he was nicknamed “The Whisper Man,” for he would lure his victims out by whispering at their windows at night. Just as Tom and Jake settle into their new home, a young boy vanishes. His disappearance bears an unnerving resemblance to Frank Carter’s crimes, reigniting old rumors that he preyed with an accomplice. Now, detectives Amanda Beck and Pete Willis must find the boy before it is too late, even if that means Pete has to revisit his great foe in prison: The Whisper Man.”
➽ The Escape Room by Megan Goldin
“Vincent, Jules, Sylvie, and Sam are ruthlessly ambitious high-flyers working in the lucrative world of Wall Street finance where deception and intimidation thrive. Getting rich is all that matters, and they’ll do anything to reach the top. When they are ordered to participate in a corporate team-building exercise that requires them to escape from a locked elevator, dark secrets of their team begin to be laid bare.”
➽ The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay
“Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road.One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, “None of what’s going to happen is your fault”. Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out: “Your dads won’t want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world.”
And I promise we will get the break downs up soon! But hopefully you all can mark the start dates on your calendars now! Also, if you know me at all, you know I am the biggest baby in the world, and I hardly ever read thrillers, but my soft self cannot handle true crime things, so I will not be reading American Predator with you, but I promise to make up for it with the other three! I am so honored to do this readalong/readathon again with you all, and I hope you join us for a book, or two, or them all! Happy reading, friends. Stay spooky! 🎃

Ooh, I’m so excited!! I definitely didn’t get to participate as much as I wanted to last year but I’ll try my best this year! And I totally don’t blame you for not wanting to read American Predator, true crime sometimes just gives me the ickiest feelings😅
I’m not sure I’ve said this enough: I’M SO EXCITED.
I’m so excited last year I read The Last Time I lied when you did this and I loved it so much! I have three of the book already I know I won’t be able to read all three with working and taking five classes with 16 credit hours but one ends in October so I will have a little bit more time.
wow, my love, i missed you and your posts SO MUCH. i will have to check these books out (mostly for any excuse to get more you in my life.)
Yay!! I’m hoping to participate in this, it looks quite good. 🙂
