THE INVISIBLE MAN BY H.G. WELLS

This book is about a man named Griffin who made himself invisible. Griffin is very selfish, and uses his invisibility only for himself. He uses it to steal and to kill other people. Eventually he explains all of this to a man named Kemp. Kemp agrees to help him create a Reign of Terror. However, Kemp betrays him, giving explicit instructions to the police on how to catch him. This book is full of suspense. It leaves you wanting more.℘

Curiosity House: The Shrunken Head by Lauren Oliver

Four children named Thomas, Max, Pippa, and Sam are “freaks”, so to say. They first lived in orphanages before they were transferred to Dumfrey’s Dime Museum. An amazonian shrunken head is put on display. Immediately following, a trail of murders ticks off. A newspaper man, Bill Evans, writes stories on these murders. As he closes in around the case, he too dies a frightful death. The children are the only ones who possess the powers to stop these murders. They have only a matter of time left to figure out who murdered these people before it was too late, or their loving caretaker would be killed. In the end, they find the person who committed the crime, but he got away. This book is filled with mystery and danger from cover to cover. I really enjoyed it.♣

Nightmares!, by Jason Segel

This book is a horror/fantasy book. It has all sorts of nightmarish things in it, including killer bunnies, a witch with a large appetite, a gorgon, and certain boy named Charlie who quite definitely is sleep-deprived and antagonized. When Charlie goes to sleep his spirit passes into the realm of Nightmares, called the Netherworld, and his body stays safe in bed. However, when his dreams become all too real, his body also passes into the terrifying world of the Netherworld. Soon he finds out that he needs to conquer his nightmares to ever get back. At the same time, in the Netherworld, chaos reigns. Under the self-appointed rule of President Fear, a giant, children are tortured and the Netherworld is thrown into a huge civil war. Charlie finds himself caught in the middle. In the end, he makes a fool of the so-called “great” President Fear. This book is very tense and tortuous. I like it a lot.♣
