Scarier than Stephen King is quite the compliment.
Some words of advice…. NEVER, EVER read a scary,creepy,exorcist book at 2 in the morning…..it causes a lack of sleep. #TheMerciless

Emoji game = on point.
#TheMerciless written by Daniella Vega is a great book but terrible to read at 1-2am when the plot is so filled with torture and blood😅

Yeah, it might be a good idea to save these books for daytime reading. With a lot of people around. Preferably your mom.
That book is the closest I have come to really creeped out in a while, and I’m hard to bother when it comes to gore. #themerciless

Beware the gore factor.
#TheMerciless was awesome! I finished the book at 2:30 in the morning. It gave me nightmares lol

How is it that a book that looks so sweet can be so terrifying?!
