[Challenge] Horror Reading Challenge: Second Quarter Update

The Horror Reading Challenge is hosted by Tracy @ Cornerfolds. Goal is to read as many books of the horror genre as possible. The challenge started back in January 1st and ends on December 31st.
I'm actually quite proud of myself. I don't usually pick up many horror novels because it's really difficult to get me hooked with a good premise. I don't get scared easily and when I pick up a horror book that's only mediocre I tend to go back to other genre books for a while.

The challenge is a great way to motivate myself to read and try more horror or thriller novels, even those that I usually wouldn't have picked up. "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" by Michelle Hodkin has a huge following and I was actually quite intimidated by starting this novel. My expectations were fulfilled, namely that I didn't like it at all. I didn't think it was scary, it wasn't full of plot twists, but just written in a very messy way.

Good thing I decided to continue The Forbidden Game series by L.J. Smith then, because I absolutely loved the first novel and it scared the shit out of me. The series plays with human existential fears, but it's not so scary that you might pee yourself, but only gives up a really uncomfortable and eerie vibe, which is what I absolutely love.
