Half-Minute Horrors by Susan  Rich

EXCERPT: ‘…..you ought to know about the man who watches you when you sleep.

He is a quiet man, which is why you don’t know about him. You don’t know how he gets into your home, or how he finds his way to the room in which you sleep. You don’t know how he can stare at you so long without blinking, and you don’t know how he manages to be gone by morning, without a trace, and you don’t know where he purchased the long sharp knife, curved like a crescent moon, that he holds in his left hand, sometimes just millimeters from your eyes, which are closed and flickering in dream.

ABOUT THIS BOOK: How scared can you get in only 30 seconds?
Dare to find out!

Dive into the shortest, scariest, spine-tinglers, hair-raisers, and eye-poppers ever created.

MY THOUGHTS: It is September, and any day now, Halloween merchandise will be hitting the shelves, if it hasn’t done so already. This is an ideal pick for the young bookworms in your lives. The stories are 30 seconds long. . . Some even shorter. There are stories, graphic stories, poems and even a limerick.

I bought this for my grandson some years ago, and found it on his bookshelf today when I was looking for something else. So I picked it up and read it (out in the bright sunlight) and enjoyed it all over again.

WARNING: You’ll never look at your closet door, your cat, your sock drawer, or even yourself in the mirror the same way again.


THE AUTHOR: These instant thrills come from astounding talents, including Lemony Snicket, James Patterson, Neil Gaiman, R.L. Stine, Holly Black, Brett Helquist, and many more.

DISCLOSURE: Although I purchased this book, it belongs to my grandson and fellow bookworm, Kayden Webby, who is in the process of setting up his own book blog.

I love good quality chocolate. I love the ocean and love to be in, on or beside it. I read any and every where. I am a proud mum and Nana. I like wine, gin, Southern Comfort, a cold Heineken on a hot day. I am very versatile like that. I cross stitch, do jigsaws, garden, and work on a farm. I am an occasional scribbled. I have far too many books I want to read to ever find the time to die.
