Who loves to be scared? I was at the Victoria Schwab book

Who loves to be scared? I was at the Victoria Schwab book signing the other night and there was a girl in the audience who wanted to stay at a haunted hotel in LA that Schwab had mentioned. She was like “I love this kind of stuff! I want to see a ghost!” Meanwhile I’m like “ARE YOU CRAZY?” haha. I have to admire her excitement and bravery, but you won’t catch me anywhere near a haunted hotel. . While I don’t do horror books, I can still appreciate a darker thrill. This short story collection caught my eye. (Thank you to @flatironbooks for gifting me this copy) Thirteen YA authors reimagine Edgar Allan Poe’s most popular and unsettling tales, some of which I’m super familiar with (Kendare Blake, Rin Chupeco, Tiffany D Jackson, Amanda Lovelace) and several others who have books I recognize but haven’t read! I’m also a sucker for retellings. (Mostly because I love cleverness and I love seeing how authors creatively use elements of original tales and weave them into something new). . I’m just hoping that my excitement over the retellings and having something moody for the Fall season doesn’t leave me with regrets. ha. If I’m afraid to take my garbage can out after dark then I guess these authors did their job. haha. (JK guys, I always get my garbage cans out before the sun goes down because I’m not dumb enough to make myself easy prey for vampires.) . #hishideousheart #dahliaadler #kendareblake #rinchupeco #lamargiles #tessagratton #tiffanydjackson #stephaniekuehn #amandalovelace #mariekenijkamp #emilylloydjones #hillarymonahan #calebroehrig #franwilde #edgarallanpoe
