TPGH

True Philippine Ghost Stories

  • Throwback to my Elementary Days when I’m into short stories than novels. TPGS (True Philippine Ghost Stories) is a compilation of stories by those people who have supernatural encounters or experiences. I used to collect several volumes and read it before my classes starts. Some of them are legit and creepy and some are quite hard to believe. Still, I enjoyed reading it.

TGFTW

The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco

  • I’ve read this recently and I really like the story. It reminds me of The Grudge and The Ring movies – Japanese version, which scared the heck out of me. This is definitely a quick read. Check out my full review here.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

  • Just looking at the cover it seems pretty mysterious and creepy. You know what, it is creepy and unpredictable. This is a psychological thriller / paranormal romance. It’s fun reading this and make your own theory of what happens next. Tip: If you don’t have the second book and you are reading this, GRAB IT. It’s a cliffhanger. Read my review here.

Ten by Gretchen McNeil

  • This is one of those books with an easy writing style but will put you on the edge of your seat. I started this book around 7pm and ended up sleeping around 4 am. I had goose bumps. I couldn’t sleep. The ambiance was really scary and made me nervous. Ten teens. Three Days. One Killer. –> seriously. You just want to find out who’s the killer.  You can read my full thoughts here.

Dark Secrets

Dark Secrets 1: Legacy of Lies & Don’t Tell by Elizabeth Chandler

  • I picked this book randomly because it’s on sale and decided to give it a try. I didn’t expect that this will make me shiver.  It contains two mystery/thriller stories which are fast-paced and enjoyable. I like them both.

Horror movie recommendation (Additional):

(Left to Right:  Shutter, The Grudge: Ju-On, A Tale of Two Sisters, Feng Shui, The Eye) – These movies might be old, but THEY ARE AWESOME AND SCARED THE HECK OUT OF ME!
