An ancient burial ground. A mythical creature that preys on all lost souls who enter. A family tragedy almost too horrifying to imagine, described in such grisly detail, it proves that Stephen King is the King of horror.

Deemed King's scariest novel ever written, Pet Sematary plays a psychological cat and mouse game with you, making you question your inner sanity and roll through the tides of grief with the characters, relating to them in some way. If you were given a choice to allow your loved one to rest peacefully, or have just one more day with them despite the ominous warnings, which would you pick? ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

Swift, a young wolf separated from his pack due to an attack by a rival wolf family, must navigate a lone stretch of pacific wilderness on an adventure of survival. Alone, Swift faces hunger, injuries, poachers and other enemies as he struggles to find a new place called home.
Inspired by the true story of OR-7, this charming journey is told in the wolf's point of view and will stick with you long after you put the book down. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

A former British combat nurse accidentally walks through the standing stones at Craigh na Dun in 1945, and travels back in time to 1743 in the Scottish Highlands. Disoriented and lost, Claire must place her trust in Jamie Fraser, a young Scots warrior. Torn between two timelines, Claire must make a choice - a choice that will ultimately affect her own future, and the futures of many in the course of two histories that intertwine.
Historically accurate, and beautifully written, Diana Gabaldon's Outlander book series is among one of my favorites. Themes of romance, history, family ties and loyalties, betrayal, and the brutal realities of war sums up the series with a touch of humor and charm as well. If you're a fan of historical fiction, definitely give Gabaldon's series a try. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon

A grisly, unspeakable murder. A seemingly innocent baseball coach. Two stories intertwined in one. Evidence places him at the scene. His incontrovertible alibi places him elsewhere. What lies hidden within the darkest corners of one’s mind? What sort of monster is capable of committing such heinous acts?
Perhaps one of Stephen King’s most darkest, twisted, creepiest novels, The Outsider latches onto you with its steely grip within the first few pages, and refuses to let go until the very end when a twist drops so severely that it leaves you stumbling to make sense of it. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon
