I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Screams in the Night is the perfect book for Halloween. It consists of 7 short yet creepy stories. I started reading the smaller stories first, which are at the end of the book, and I found them a bit lacking...in what I am not so sure. The thing is I love short stories but maybe these were a bit too short for me. Then I read the last story in the book, which was the most creepy on for me: Watched. It's about a girl that is being watched by a green eyed monster everytime she wants to sleep. The story really kept me on edge, especially since I read right before going to sleep. From the shorter stories this was my favorite one.
Then I turned back at the beginning of the book where the two bigger stories are. Let me tell you those two stories were the reason why this collection got 4 stars. They were amazing. So I am going to give each a little review.
A Tale of Two Cemeteries by Maren Dille: This is a funny story of two cemeteries which are run by ghosts. Once a week each cemetery will put on a show, trying to scare people and earn ghost credit. This was a very funny story. The two cemetery owners fighting with each other and then the ghost of Justin Feeber, a pop star, ended up at one of the cemeteries.
Our Own Worst Enemies by Jamie Canosa: This one was also one of my favorite stories in the book. Cal and Josh are fighting to survive in a world where zombies made their appearance a few months back. One day they learn about an Enclave not so far away from them and decide to go after it. This was a great action story and also very heart warming and heart breaking at the same time.
Now, both of those stories could have been a full book and they'd be amazing. So if you are looking for a scary read, or 7, during October this is a great book.
