YA NovelTitle: Zombie Blondes
Author: Brian James
Description: From the moment Hannah Sanders arrived in town, she felt there was something wrong. A lot of houses were for sale, and the town seemed infected by an unearthly quiet. And then, on Hannah’s first day of classes, she ran into a group of cheerleaders—the most popular girls in school.
The odd thing was that they were nearly identical in appearance: blonde, beautiful, and deathly pale.
But Hannah wants desperately to fit in—regardless of what her friend Lukas is telling her: If she doesn’t watch her back, she’s going to be blonde and popular and dead—just like all the other zombies in this town. . . .
Diana's Comment: This is the first and last YA novel that I have read in the bookstore because I was so desperate to read it! (Only had the hardcover at the time and no money). I read this before actually creating this blog so I do not have a review for it but I give it a 5/5! Totally spooky and totally unique, zombie fans should definitely check this out! Brian James was fantastic at making a story through a girl's perspective because he nailed all of the emotions and thoughts amazingly!

Title: The Ring
Release Year: 2002
Description: A mysterious video tape is killing off anyone who watches it. Whenever the victim watches it, the phone rings, telling them they have only one week to live. A young reporter named Rachel is investigating these events, but after she and her small son watch the tape, it becomes a race against time to find out why the tape is killing everyone and how it could be stopped.
Diana's Comment: This movie scared me, even until today. After I watched it when I was around 10 years old, I couldn't sleep for that entire night. I was honestly so scared out of my mind that every shadow made me think it was Sadako coming out to get me. If you guys really need a scare for Halloween, The Ring is your movie.
