Series: Twisted Books to Leave You Shook #1
Genre: Middle Grade Horror

In the tradition of Goosebumps and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark comes Twisted Books to Leave You Shook, the chilling new middle-grade chapter book series from C.S. James!

The scares begin with Fright Filter. Twelve-year-old Nicole loves playing with the face filters on her phone. When she discovers an app update with a new selection of monster filters, she can’t wait to try it out. But the monster filters prove to be a little too real, and now Nicole may have changed her face in real life…forever.

Then stay shook with another tale of body horror, It Started with an Itch, a terrifying bonus story by Sean Elwood!

Are you ready to be shook?

My Review:

Remember when your mom told you that if you kept making that face that it would stay that way?  Well that was just the 80s and 90s version of what the 2020s brings the kids now - now there are FRIGHT FILTERS!  Cool, right? I mean... kinda! 

Delightfully reminiscent of the Goosebumps I adored as a kid, it's delightful to see a new series coming.  And I do love when a middle grade book still speaks to me as an adult.  Taking this fun little horror story while also instilling a lesson within just warms my black heart.  I was just having so much fun that when the light bulb went off in the characters head, it also did in mine and I was like "_______ WHAT?" Hahaha.  Maybe that's a little exaggerated but it doesn't take away with just how much damn fun I had with this.  

AND a bonus body horror short story at the end? Um, don't you threaten me with a good time!  Absolutely delighted to have ended my day with these fun horror stories.
