Dressed to kill

Martha knew there was something evil about the house she was moving into. It was so cold...and creepy. And it wasn't just the house that was giving her a weird feeling. Martha was sure someone was following her...watching her every move.

Then the practical jokes began -- the scarecrow with a carving knife in its head, the fire. And the phone calls: "Trick or treat, Martha...you're dead."

It was October, but these were no Halloween tricks. Someone would be coming home this year with more than just a bag of treats. And Martha was the prize.

Trick or treat.

I read a LOT of point horror book when I was younger and this one was one of my favorites. I was glad that I forgot who the killer was at the end because I actually guessed wrong until it got closer to the end and I remembered who it was. I was looking for Nostalgia from when I was younger and this book was perfect. Still fun to read and still a little bit creepy, if you are reading it on a stormy night, sitting in a car waiting for your daughter to finish cheerleading.

  • Martha hates her new life but I liked Martha, she had a little anxiety but who could blame her moving into a super weird house with her dad and his new family.
  • Conor (Martha’s Stepbrother) was weird, like really weird and I liked him. I also sort of wanted Martha to like him, like him but that might be weird
  • The story was a good old fashioned ghost story haunted house. It leaves you wondering who is “haunting” Martha.
  • My 12 year old self was screaming with delight at all the spooky parts, My 44 year old self wasn’t scared but remembering how creepy this was when I was younger was fun.

This is a great read. I thinking Teens would find this book and the others in the series a bit creepy but really fun to read. My daughter is already asking if she can reading them, at 10 years old I think this is one she could read without worrying about her getting too scared. This book has minor kissing but nothing else that would be too much for teens. I totally recommend for Teens, YA and Adults looking for a bit of a b-type horror book.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!

  1. I used to read this type of books a lot when I was a teen. I read R.L. Stine mostly but did read other authors similar to him occasionally. I’ve only read 2 books by Richie, The Mall and the House Next Door. I absolutely adored The House Next Door.

    • I found almost all her books on KU. I want to go back and read a few more. I only read the fear street books but never the goosebumps. I wish they still had books like the point horror, my daughter would love them.
