Reviewing Shadow House: The Gathering

I was really dubious about reading Shadow House- The Gathering, i honestly thought it wasn’t my kind of book.. little did i know that i’m a bit of an odd ball with a taste for the weird and the creepy! Who knew!?

I thought it was incredibly good, like i said it was creepy but in satisfying and edge of your seat kind of way. I just couldn’t put it down!

I read it in one sitting and there is an app that you can get to accompany it so the story keeps on going!

Plus there are more in the series according to the author, who i had to seek out because i wanted/ needed to read more!

It’s hard to choose a favourite part so i’ve thought of a few to whet your appetite:   Marcus sees a sphere with a handle so he turns it and 8 balls roll out to spell ‘lets play’- Eurgh goosebumps!

Dash and Dylan find a boy at the bottom of some stairs with a rabbit mask on and a lollipop in his hand… creepy!

Poppy finds a picture of a girl holding a doll but her eyes have been scratched out- weird!

I’ve never really read ‘scary’ books before but i thoroughly enjoyed this one (and it wasn’t actually scary..), i can’t wait to find out what all the weird things they saw actually mean. 🙂

Thank you to Scholastic for my copy of this book.

Megan is a prolific reader, having been reading since she was just 1 years old, Megan is never without a book in her hand or her heart. At just 5 years old Megan challenged herself to read 365 books in a year but finished in just 10 months! She has always been keen to grow her library at home and is a frequent visitor to our local library. Megan may have read 365 books in 10 months when she was a pipsqueak 5 year old but she was reading every day before that and every day since! We estimate that she is well over the 2000 book mark and nothing is slowing her down yet! She is a keen supporter of literacy and authors alike. Now she is older she hopes to give her reading challenge a boost by reading at least twice as many books in a year. Megan generally reads several times a day and as her parents we are read out a lot of passages from books!! :-) Megan is a keen reviewer and has decided to share her journey through books with other book minded people. She is also a member of a chatterbooks group where she is given a book (or 3) to read and review for the next gathering. She is confident in her approach to what she has read, what she likes and dislikes, and she has no problem expressing those feelings with other booklovers.
