Biography 1
So the next Shivers  book hasn't arrived yet and, having no other ideas, I've decided to share a little about myself, and hopefully launch into some completely unrelated concepts and stories along the way. I'll begin with by far the gnarliest thing about me...

Shivers 15: Pool Ghoul
So, I honestly don't know how to classify this book. First of all, it wasn't scary, mostly because M.D. Spencer dedicated about ten of the 122 pages to the actual horror aspect of this book. It's not bad, though, because the storyline is actually pretty gna...

Shivers 12: The Secret of Fern Island
Believe it or not, this book was actually really good. Well, certain aspects. It was not bad for a Shivers  book, but the characters were idiots, the ending was too confusing to be any good, and there were no explanations. Pretty good, though. After reading...

Shivers 11: Guess Who's Coming For Dinner
If I had to guess, I would say that little boy that starred in the Home Alone  movies. Macaulay Culkin. Anyway, despite the undeniable creepiness of this novel's cover, it's actually not that  at all scary. Still, there is some weird goodness that is kind o...

Shivers 10: The Curse of the New Kid
Let me start off by saying that while the main character of this book does move, it's not the same. In this book, the main character moves about twice a year due to his dad's job as a company "trouble shooter," which makes me think that maybe M.D. Spencer n...
