BOO! A spooky hello!
Welcome to a spooooooky new Spell the Month in Books!! Whoo! October is here~
This month I decided to do spooky books. Either on my TBR or ones I recently read (or not so recently as I just couldn’t find a second O or find an R). I don’t have a stack this time because it is a combo of Kindle and physical books. I just didn’t have enough letters on my physical TBR (mostly Cs or Hs). I am glad when we are back to March/April/etc. XD
First up I will show you guys a picture of my stack (if I have one) and after that I will show the book covers + blurb (for the Dutch-Dutch books I translated the blurb for you , for the English>Dutch translated books or English books I picked the original blurb).
The original creator of this tag is Reviews From The Stacks!

BEERS AND FEARS: THE HAUNTED BREWERY
There’s an abandoned building in northern New Jersey with a rich, haunted history. Ghosts. Demons. Monsters of all kinds. It was once an asylum for the criminally insane, a craft brewery, and most recently – a decrepit eyesore that should have been demolished years ago. A place where evil dwells. A venue that feeds on the souls of all who enter.
It’s five o’clock somewhere, but here, it’s always just after midnight. So come. Have a drink. Just don’t stay too long. Because here, there is no last call.
Beers and Fears: The Haunted Brewery consists of four interconnected novellas.
No Fortunate Son – A Vietnam veteran comes home and finds a job at the local brewery. Between the shady, backroom business dealings and the menacing visions he’s experiencing, Blaze finds himself in a fight for his sanity… and his life.
Have a Drink on Me – A barfly discovers his new favorite spot might be harboring dark secrets… and a doorway to Hell.
Alternative – A motivated business owner tries to turn a derelict spot into a thriving craft brewery, but an eerie presence aims to end his progress… and lay claim to his soul.
The Last Taproom on the Edge of the World – A journalist investigates the history of the infamous haunted brewery. Each round could be his last as he discovers the terrible truth of Bayberry Bluff.
The authors (Chuck Buda, Frank Edler, Tim Meyer, Armand Rosamilia) embark on an annual book signing tour, BEERS AND FEARS, where they visit small craft breweries to promote their books. And drink beer. Mostly to drink beer, though.
From her earliest memories, Ashley Pearce has been drawn to Ruby Hill Lunatic Asylum, and she’s not the only one. Decades after the abandoned hospital ended its institutional reign of torture and neglect, something lurks in the shadows. Since she’s a paranormal investigator, it’s Ashley’s job to find out what. Crime scene expert Corbin Malone doesn’t believe in ghosts. A born skeptic, he has no interest in entertaining the hype surrounding the mysterious deaths at Ruby Hill, but he won’t turn his back while more women die. He agrees to an overnight investigation, never expecting his first encounter would be with the woman he pushed away a year ago. But when he discovers Ashley is a target, he learns his greatest fear isn’t living with his own demons, but losing her for good. Contains mature themes.
