Win a Signed Patrick Carman Book! – A Ghoulish Give-away just in time for Halloween!
THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED!! I’LL POST THE WINNING NAME LATER TODAY (OCTOBER 24TH)!! IF YOU DON”T WIN DON’T WORRY! I’LL BE BACK WITH ANOTHER CONTEST!
My latest contest is for a perfectly spooky prize -just in time for Halloween!!
The prize is for a signed copy of Patrick Carman’s new series 3:15, Season 1 – Things That Go Bump in the Night! I picked up an extra copy to give away when I saw Mr. Carman at a book signing at the Harleysville Book Store. The short stories in the book are weird, scary or down right creepy! Check out my review of it below! To enter the contest you have to tell me what your favorite monster is in the comment section below and leave a valid email address so I can contact you if you win. If you are under 18, make sure you have your parents permission to enter. ALSO the stories in this book can be rather scary so it is not appropriate for kids that get frightened easily or I’d say for anyone under 10. The contest is open NOW and will end on the 23rd of October. So if you win, you will get the book in time for Halloween!
READ ON FOR MY REVIEW!!!
Things That Go Bump In The Night
By Patrick Carman
148 Pages (plus some extra features) – Ages +10
Published in 2011 by Scholastic Press
3:15 stands for – 1. Listen to an audio file 2. Read the short story 3. Watch the video ending and you get the whole story in about 15 minutes! Each chapter is a short scary/weird story. The stories are full of hair-raising, spine chilling things like ghosts, cursed objects, evil science teachers and everything else that can go “bump in the night”!
You can read 3:15 in 2 ways! One way is getting the book, listening to audio files, and watching the videos online. You can also buy everything as an app. I really liked how Mr. Carman put videos mixed with reading in his Skeleton Creek series (see my review HERE) and this series I think is really cool. Each story has an audio introduction (and the music is even creepy). The stories are definitely exciting (sometimes even a little too creepy and I didn’t read them in the dark)! I really like the short story format of this series. The video endings were something I looked forward to when reading. I think the stories will keep any kid (or adult) interested in reading! My mom said it reminded her of the Twilight Zone (what ever that is, but she said you adults will know 🙂 ). I would recommend it to kids 10+ only because some of it can be very creepy. It’s not like violent but some of the stories are scary! If you are a fan of scary stories, this book is for you! If not, read Mr. Carman’s book Floors (one of the best books I have read this year) see my Review HERE. To learn more about 3:15 and Mr. Carman’s other books, please visit his website by clicking HERE. You can also see examples of 3:15 stories there.
I give Things that Go Bump in the Night 5 out of 5 frightenly fiendish book worms !
