Vampires and other spooky stories.

My sister the vampire: Love Bites by Sienna Mercer.

Is Transylvania ready for the twins?

Olivia and Ivy are headed to Transylvania to meet their dad´s side of the family, which just happens to be vampire royalty. Olivia is prepped to feel out of her element, but discovers she fits i with the fanged ones pretty well.

Ivy is a little less at ease-fancy clothes, royal dinners, and endless curtsies aren´t really her style. She soon has a project to distract her style. The crown prince of Transylvania seems a little too interested n Olivia-is he just being friendly, or is he up to no good?

My sister the vampire: Lucky Break by Sienna Mercer.

Olivia and Ivy are thrilled that their friend Camilla is putting on a play. And not just any play- Romeo and Juliet! Could anything be more romantic?

Olivia is swooning at the thought of stepping into the lead role (and hopes that dreamy Jackson will be Romeo to her Juliet). But no theater production happens without its fair share of drama… and this on is no exception!

School of Fear: Class is not dismissed by Gitty Daneshvari.

n this hilarious follow-up to School of Fear, eccentric headmaster Mrs. Wellington demands requests the presence of Madeleine, Theo, Lulu, and Garrison for a mandatory summer of retraining after discovering that each of her former students has secretly regressed. Facing their fears was terrifying enough, but when the foursome learns they’ll be joined by a fifth student, things start to get even scarier.

To make matters worse, the students quickly find themselves tasked with saving their school. And because failing means spending the rest of their lives with unresolved phobias, this is one test they all plan to ace. From Goodreads.

Creepover: Truth or dare… by P. J. Night.

During a round of Truth or Dare. Abby Miller confesses her crush on Jake Chilson. The only people who know her secret are her friends at her sleepover-and whoever sent her a text message in the middle of the night warning her to stay away from Jake… or else!

But Abby isn´t going to stay away from Jake especially not after he asks her to the school dance.

As the night of the dance approaches, some very creepy things start happening to Abby. Someone definitely wants to sabotage her plans with Jake. Is it a jealous classmate, or, as Abby begins to suspect, could it be a ghost?
