Ever since I discovered “A Haunting” on Discovery Channel back when I was in middle school the paranormal has fascinated me. Sure, The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall may be a work of fiction, but that doesn’t mean anything. I enjoy reading about the paranormal, whether fact or fake, and because this book has to do with the paranormal it really interested me.
Delia, who is 16, is labeled as a “troubled teen” after she and her friends worked out a plan to fly to Daytona with her friends without their parents knowing. Except there’s two things: one, she doesn’t really want to go, and two, she ended up getting caught whilst at the airport after her parents caught wind of it. Oh, and her boyfriend broke up with her over text.
She left. It was the last time I’d ever see her alive.
Growing up I read a lot of Hardy Boy books, I was always checking them out from the library and buying my own at Borders. I may have moved on to adult thrillers, however I found reading The Shadow of Seth to be refreshing, as it’s the middle ground between mystery books for children and mystery books for adults.
If I asked you to take away one thing from review of Eeny Meeny after reading it, I would hope would be that I enjoyed how sick and twisted it was. The same goes for Fixed in Blood. It wasn’t your typical murder read, this one was far more than that.
The book’s synopsis is what piqued my interest, as it’s not your typical murder. All the murder books I’ve read usually involve a gun or knife, whereas this one has to do with a poisonous gas in a subway car. Pretty original if you ask me.
The first 25% of the book seemed interesting. Then the next 50% was really dull. Then for the final 25% it picked up again. Even though the final 25% was decent, overall still felt “meh” to me.
