Spooky Books and Spooky Prizes ~ enter if you dare

Troll Hunters

Evil and danger rumbles under the earth. Follow the adventures of a group of contemporary teenagers who discover that their town, and ultimately the entire world, is under attack by fierce creatures from deep beneath the earth. These creatures were known to the earliest humans as trolls or goblins, but they are much more dangerous than their fairy-tale versions. The teens make unlikely allies along the way, including a half-man, half-troll, as well as some legendary constellations that quite literally come to life. The young heroes will also discover their own untapped celestial abilities in an epic battle between good versus evil.

Hocus Pocus Hotel

Tyler Yu asked Charlie Hitchcock to meet him after school, and Charlie assumed it was for a fight. But when it turns out Ty just needs help solving a magical mystery at the Abracadabra Hotel, an unlikely friendship is formed.

My Review:
I was given a chance to read both of these books and provide a review on my blog just in time for the spookiest holiday of the year . . .Halloween!  Both books are full of thrills, chills and spooky mystery.  I thought that both Troll Hunters and Hocus Pocus Hotel were fun and entertaining reads that I would recommend for middle grade to young adult readers.  Both boys and girls alike will enjoy the engaging characters, mystery and intriguing plots.  The books are both well-written and easy to read.  Great books for this fun holiday season or any time of year.
