I have always preferred reading printed novels over eBooks, which is probably one of the reasons why I had forgotten this children book was on my Kindle until I stumbled upon it last week.

The Doll Graveyard is written by Lois Ruby and centers on Shelby and Brian Tate, whom have just moved into the Cinder Creek house. This isn't just an ordinary house as the kids start to believe it is haunted. Strange cries can be heard throughout the night and objects suddenly move on their own.

All of this probably has something to do with the fact that there is a graveyard in their backyard. The oddest thing about the graves is that they are extremely tiny, as if the graves were meant for dolls.

I have always been freaked out by porcelain dolls, so reading a supernatural book that has creepy dolls in it is truly terrifying. Now the plot of this book is slightly confusing, but there are plenty of twists and turns that make up for it. This is the first book that I have read by the author and she does a pretty good job of building suspense. Overall, The Doll Graveyard is no Goosebumps thriller, but the haunting story does stays in your head long after you finish read it.
