This book was called Creed. (read in March, 2015)
It was on my category: "Book that Scares You"
I don't read many scary books, so I reached out to my friends to see what they recommended. I got a huge list of books to pick from (and added quite a few to my reading list for after the challenge) but decided to go with Creed. It sounded creepy, and - I admit - it was a bit shorter than a lot of the others.
The story was of three teenagers who were on their way to a concert in NYC and ran out of gas. They come across a creepy town to get gas and find no one available in the town. Everything goes downhill after that - crazy people, blood, killings.....you know - your typical scary story.
Except.....it really wasn't. I wanted to like it. I kept waiting for it to get "I need to put this book in the freezer" scary, but it never did. It was actually kind of dumb. I found myself rolling my eyes several times at the silliness of it all. I was disappointed because I was looking forward to reading it. It did sound good.
Ah well. It happens. Was it creepy? Sure. But not in the way I was expecting. It was more crazy than creepy.
I give it 2 1/2 stars. And that is probably being generous.
