Haunted Halloween Contest!

Want to win some books- well you've come to the right place!

Wish You Were Dead by Todd Strasser

Publication Date: October 13th 2009 (Egmont USA)
Str-S-d:I’ll begin with Lucy. She is definitely first on the list. You can’t believe how it feels to be in the cafeteria and turn around and there she is staring at me like I’m some disgusting bug or vermin. Does she really think I WANT to be this way? I hate you, Lucy. I really hate you. You are my #1 pick. I wish you were dead.

The day after anonymous blogger Str-S-d wishes the popular girl would die, Lucy vanishes. The students of Soundview High are scared and worried. Especially frightened and wracked with guilt is Madison Archer, Lucy’s friend and the last person to see her the night she disappeared.As days pass with no sign of the missing girl, even the attention of Tyler, an attractive new student, is not enough to distract Madison from her growing sense of foreboding.

When two more popular students disappear after their names are mentioned on Str-S-d’s blog, the residents of Soundview panic.

Meanwhile, Madison receives anonymous notes warning that she could be next. Desperate to solve the mystery before anyone else disappears, Madison turns to Tyler, but can she trust him when it becomes clear that he knows more than he’s sharing?The clock is ticking. Madison must uncover the truth behind the mysterious disappearances . . . before her name appears in Str-S-d’s blog.

In the spirit of stories like I Know What You Did Last Summer, Todd Strasser updates the teen thriller for the techno age with Wish You Were Dead, the first installment in a new “thrill”-ogy.

(I have an ARC of Wish You Were Dead by Todd Strasser. If you like really suspenseful, creepy and downright SCARY books and movies, then you'll love this one. It really, really freaked me and kind of unnerved me in parts! I read it late at night on the patio and got so spooked, I had to go inside too. Eeek!! Enjoy! Just don't read too late at night like I did! )

I'm also throwing in a finished copy of Marley Gibson's
