Day 21 – Bad Moonlight by R.L. Stine
This one is a throwback, and could just as easily be replaced by ANY Stine book from your childhood. This one is a Fear Street book that I revisited recently. It follows a young woman using her gap year to travel the country with her band, Bad Moonlight. She’s the newest member, and still getting used to being on the road with a group of people she hardly knows, but things are mostly good. Except, they’re also starting to get a little weird. When she finds herself writing creepy lyrics and gnawing on raw meat, she has to seriously question what is happening to her, and who might be involved.

Day 22 – Through the Woods by Emily Carroll
In this graphic novel, Emily Caroll delivers a collection of chilling tales, punctuated by macabre illustrations. These stories are gruesome, yet captivating; filled with devious monsters, brave girls, and unhappy endings. You’ll want to flip through the panels again and again, and each time, you’ll find yet another horror you missed in your eagerness to read along to find out what would happen next.
