This is a brilliant horror book. It is not super scary, but can scare you if you skip ahead in it. I would recommend reading it all in one day instead of risking getting nightmares, but if you like nightmares, read over a number of days!
The Doll Graveyard is about an almost-12-year-old girl named Shelby Tate. Shelby, her younger brother Brian and her mother move into the house they have inherited from their great-aunt. The house is called Cinder Creek. But there is something odd about the house, at the back there is a cemetery. The graves in the cemetery are only small enough for dolls. There is only one thing wrong with the dolls, they won’t stay buried!
I found this a mildly scary book, but if you really dislike horror, then I wouldn’t recommend reading it. It’s quite fast paced and makes for an easy read as there is absolutely nothing confusing about it. I would recommend it and rate it 10/10 because it is really good and an exciting read.
Please tell me if you have read this book and if you enjoyed it.
