Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday | Campfire by Shawn Sarles

Hey friends,

I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! I definitely am. I don’t want to jinx it, but I got some potentially amazing news and cannot wait to share it with you all once everything is confirmed!

I’m also super exhausted post Bookcon, but I should have myย haul and vlog up either today or tomorrow. I have everything edited, but just need to film the haul/outro. I’m so excited to show you guys what I got & who I met!

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, though, there are a ย ton of new releases I am looking forward to!

For those of you not familiar, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over atย Breaking the Spine. This meme spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases. 2018 has a ton of amazing books coming out so it will be super easy to highlight a release for the rest of the year.

This week’s pick:

This week I’m highlighting Campfire by Shawn Sarlesย (that cover tho!)



While camping in a remote location, Maddie Davenport gathers around the fire with her friends and family to tell scary stories. Caleb, the handsome young guide, shares the local legend of the ferocious Mountain Men who hunt unsuspecting campers and leave their mark by carving grisly antlers into their victims’ foreheads.

The next day, the story comes true.

Now Maddie and her family are lost in the deep woods–with no way out–being stalked by their worst nightmares. Because there were other, more horrifying stories told that night–and Maddie’s about to find out just how they end…


Okay, so this book sounds exactly like Are You Afraid of the Dark – but in book form, which is pretty awesome.

The idea of a haunted campfire story also seems like the perfect way kick off summer. I’m almost done with my thesis and once that’s defended, I’mย officially graduated.

Also, I have the ARC of this book and I got to meet Shawn at BookCon, so now I’m even more excited to actually check out his book! I was already planning on reading this one in June, but now it’s towards the top of my TBR!

I’m anticipating this one to be around a 4 star read for me — there are a lot of great ideas at play.

Do you like spooky/scary story-inspired books?

Are you going to read Campfire?
