    For some stupid reason I read this only at nighttime and it freaked me the eff out! I have always been terrified of Bloody Mary ever since a bad experience in middle school (just stupid kids thinking we saw more than we did, but back then it was intense!) and just the idea of being haunted by her like this nope!!!This book delivers fantastically when it comes to horror content and hair-raising scenes, however it does have a shaky start where I found the reactions to her first appearance underwhe [...]

    Initial Thoughts: Do not read this book late at night when you are all by yourself. You will find yourself reaching for a box of salt, and lots of blankets and sheets to cover all the mirrors. This book would make a perfect summer horror flick - you know, the kind with the silly teens summoning a ghost for fun - then all hell breaks loose. This is a wild, fun, and very entertaining horror book - and this is coming from someone who doesn't usually read horror. Read at your own risk, :)The Review: [...]

    #1 The Summoning ★★★☆☆#2 Unleashed ???This review is long overdue, and I'm finally caving and just writing a mini-review for it. I originally gave it 3.5 stars and was going to round up to 4, but as time has gone on, I've realized I can't really justify rounding it up to 4 stars.I grew up obsessed with the urban legend of Bloody Mary, so when I learned that there was a horror duology about it, I had to snag it. The horror aspect itself is wonderful: Mary is creepy as hell and the fact [...]

    I keep on telling you people, don't dare to call the dead. Now see what happens when you tried messing up with some unfriendly ghosts.Shauna, Jess, Kitty, and Anna were the kind of girls you would definitely hate for their stupidity if this is a horror movie.But this is not a movie.This is a book. So hold your horses, haters.We have this group of friends whosuccessfullycalled Bloody Mary. How the paranormal experts would have rejoiced if this is true.But like the same things that happens in thos [...]

    Bell, Book & Candle | Mary: The Summoning ReviewSo I thought I would review something scary in honor of Halloween. Muah ha ha ha (*evil laugh*). What's more scary than a Bloody Mary? Plenty of things I'm sure, but that's not the point. I was plenty scared, believe me. Maybe it has a little to do with me being the only one downstairs tonight; I live in house inhabited by a few ghosts (I'm so serious right now). You can only imagine my reaction every time is heard a noise, or thought I saw som [...]

    I've always been fascinated by the 'Bloody Mary' myth and that - I guess - was the main reason why I was super excited to read this book. It had this 'Anna Dressed in Blood' kind of vibe to the book based on the blurb alone, so yeah, I was pretty excited to read this book early!Unfortunately though, this was yet another book that sounded cool but once read . . . it was nothing particularly special. While the book definitely had its creepy moments and perhaps will please some horror fans out ther [...]

    Another week, another mediocre horror novel. This time, it’s Mary: The Summoning, which had a lot of interesting elements and potentially cool bits of story that were unfortunately assembled in the most predictable and boring way possible.The premise is pretty simple: one girl who obviously knows more than she’s letting on convinces three of her friends to get together and summon Bloody Mary. They literally accomplish this on page one, and just as you’re wondering how we’re meant to get [...]

    When I first seen this in the library I was like Oh yeah! I mean come on that cover is bad ass! My initial reaction before reading this was OK this better scare me! And it sure did that! I don't scare easily. I'm a horror girl through and through! The scarier and gorier the better in my opinion! So naturally I'm going to love horror books! And this scared me! Every detail of Mary and the way she moved and maneuvered from one shiny object to the next was just BOOM! Even down the the small details [...]

    Mary is, without a doubt, one of the most decent classic horror YA novels I've ever read, mostly because it didn't stick solely to the cliches and attempts to scare the reader, but also actively worked to deliver well-crafted horror scenes, characters with some dimension, a complex background story to the urban legend of Bloody Mary and, most importantly, it has some semblance of a plot in there that culminates in a pretty exciting climax.There's horror and high school friendship drama in equal [...]

    My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars‘Mary moved fast. One moment she was distant, the next her hands smacked against the mirror. Her fingers flexed, and then the clawing began, a shrieking squeal of razors cutting across glass. I jerked back, forcing myself to maintain the handhold. There’d been no noise during the last summoning. Now, the sound was undeniable.’When Jess uncovers the secret to properly summoning Bloody Mary, she convinces her three friends Shauna, Kitty and Anna to join her to see if [...]

    Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: In this first novel in the series, horrific images of Mary will play in your head for weeks after reading.Opening Sentence: Dearest Constance, I regret to inform you that you are an abysmal sister.The Review:Shauna, Jess, Kitty, and Anna are good friends, so it seems like something exciting for a night, to summon Mary. I mean, nothing will actually happen, right? As you might have guessed, they were horribly wrong. Mary, in a foolish mistake [...]

    I received Mary: The Summoning by Hilary Monahan from Around The World ARC Tours and this is my honest review.Finding out there was a fictional book about Bloody Mary was exciting for the sole reason that me and my best friends used to play “Bloody Mary” at summer camp when we were younger. Of course nothing came of it but for a couple young girls we had fun scaring the crap out of ourselves! My initial thoughts about the main characters are that I dislike Jess for so many reasons. I hate he [...]

    Oohhh this book was so good. 4.5 stars because it was soo scary. I mean it kept me at the edge of my seat. I dropped it 1/2 star because Jess is a terrible human being.There are 4 girls in this story. Shauna the main character, Jess the deceitful bitch, Anna the ballsy one and Kitty the quiet, overly nice doormat. Well okay she isn't a doormat but really close. Shauna and Jess are best friends (I don't know why). Anna and Kitty have been best friends since they were six. That might be the case f [...]

    SO FUCKING SCARY. I'd like to leave it at that but I can't. This book had the suspense, the horror, and the mystery that all good horror movies should have. If this were to be made into a movie, I'd definitely watch it despite being terrified as shit. I loved the characters-they're so real and three dimensional. I especially loved the bonds of friendship that tied Shauna, Jess, Anna, and Kitty together. It was at the most scariest parts that their friendship granted me solace. Now I'm afraid I'm [...]

    The creepy cover and blurb caught my attention immediately. This is one seriously scary story! It starts with the well-known game “Bloody Mary”. Shauna’s friend Jess is obsessed with the idea of summoning the ghost of Mary from a mirror, and manages to convince Shauna, Kitty and Anna to go along with her plan. None of them expect it to really work, and for the gruesome spectre to walk out into the real world. Mary attaches herself to Shauna, haunting her through every reflective surface an [...]

    I love everything about this book. There were moments when the description was so perfect, I cringed. That does not happen often for me, a book making me react that way. And it wasn't in a way that was too much, but just right. It's everything I love about classic horror. The scare is there, but the gore is left to your imagination. Hillary has a way of presenting the idea and letting your mind run away with it, which is the makings of the perfect horror story, IMO. The pacing was non-stop throu [...]

    This one is a freaky roller coaster of a book. I wanted to reach into the book and shake the characters, talk some sense into them, and rescue a couple of them. I kept thinking things would get better and 'BOOM!' the next bad thing would happen and the bad things kept getting worse. This is one that I would recommend only if you are looking for a sleepless night because you will be up late reading and then will not want to sleep. I loved it and I am definitely looking forward to the next book!

    I have to say, I positively adored this book. I am a lover of all things creepy and crawly, especially when it comes to young adult books. I am happy to say that Mary: The Summoning offered everything I look for in a ghost story, wrapped up in one little book.Before I even get to the meat of the text, I have to mention how much I love this cover. It's what initially drew my attention in, and I have to say it really captures what the book is about. I would hang that poster up on my wall (and then [...]

    When Jess suggests that Shauna, Kitty, Anna and herself call Bloody Mary the girls are hesitant at first but Jess can be very persuasive. Its a harmless Urban Legend, right? Wrong!!! The first time they do it they see a figure emerge from the fog. They don't get a good look at her because they freak out and Jess sends Bloody Mary away. Once isn't enough for Jess though. She convinces the girls to do it again and this time try to talk to her. The girls are even more hesitant this time but Jess go [...]

    This book initially creeped me out a lot. If you have ever played this game as a child then you will instantly be reminded of the terror of the unknown and that feeling of suspense waiting for the image to appear in the mirror. What I loved about this book was that the author didn't wait forever for the excitement to begin. She did a good job of building an interesting story with believable characters and yet kept the suspense level high. There were some spots in this book that made me question [...]

    I got this book from Netgalley so I feel terribly bad for having to say that the story is horrible. There's no depth or real emotion. The writing felt very mechanic.I've heard of Bloody Mary but I don't know her story. After reading this book I am as ignorant as before. Although I can guess where the story is going.The book doesn't tell the story of Mary because this is another one on those books that are stretched into a series. Why? Why? So Mary's story cannot be fully told here or you wouldn' [...]

    Mary: The Summoning was one of the most creepy, gory, chilling books I've ever read. And that's pretty much all it is.Shauna is our narrator, and her best friend, Jess, has convinced Shauna and two other friends that they should try to summon Bloody Mary to come into the mirror at one of their houses. Jess has done a lot of research, and believes they can do it. They are much too successful, and not only does Mary appear, she attacks Shauna and then haunts her no matter where Shauna goes!Once th [...]

    My dear, dear Bloody Mary,You are SO mine.It's up on Netgalley; if I don't get approved I'm going to unleash Beyond Birthday to do the dirty work for me.Oh, and I sincerely hope this Bloody Mary has the good manners to look as horrible, blood-drenched, revolting and deformed as possible! It would be highly rude of her to look presentable.No one likes a well groomed Bloody Mary.

    Youtube Video Review: youtu/mm2DuhLWIqESo this book scared the crap outta me. Besides it being creepy and scary, I read the book mostly at night right before I went to sleep. So that part was my fault. Basically the story is about four friends who summon Bloody Mary and she breaks out of the mirror to terrorize them. Mary picks one girl in particular, Shauna, to haunt and attack. The story is about the girls trying to find a way to de-haunt Shauna and to stop Mary.Shauna is the main character of [...]

    I’ve had this book on my Want list for a little while now so no surprise I got a little giddy when the publisher approved me for a copy on NetGalley. Squee! If you haven’t done any of these mirror games, or hold seances, or played with a Ouiji board when you were growing up then I pity your childhood, the saddened, deadened thing it must have been. Or me and my friends were just really effed in the head. Either way.See, you play these games because you know you’re all going to amp each oth [...]

    I don't know the precise reason why I actually requested The Summoning in the first place. I do know that I must have been really intrigued by the idea of a retelling of Bloody Mary and maybe just wanted a break from the influx of YA books that have some type of romance running about. Or, I just wanted to measure Hillary Monahan's debut novel with a scare-a-meter.The first in the Bloody Mary series follows Shauna O'Brien, who decides to join with her 3 friends, Jess, Anna and Kitty to summon Blo [...]

    BOok Review originally published here: iheartreading/reviews/It’s hard to review a book you’ve fallen in love with, and I’ve absolutely fallen for the plot, characters, and the sublime writing that is hidden in the pages of MARY: The Summoning. This is one of the best YA gothic horror novels I’ve read in my entire life – and I’d recommend it to just about everyone.Shauna’s best friend, Jess, is obsessed with summoning Bloody Mary. But whereas Shauna thought it was just a stupid, si [...]

    I loved this! I have not read nor seen a good horror in so long! As a matter of fact my hubby and I watched a "scary" movie the other night and I laughed through the entire ridiculousness of it. Of course he was cringing on the couch so my idea of horror may be a little different from most ;)THAT said THIS was amazing. I loved it from the beginning. I was curious because it starts with a letter and it just gets more and more curious after that. The narration jumps from the letter to present day [...]
