book synopsis
If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it.

That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.

a movie if they would do it right and not make it cheesy like they do some of the syfi movies they make today,
Sharcano (Sharkpocalypse #1) - Jose Prendes

book synopsis:
A burnt and half-eaten megalodon shark corpse is found beached. A priest commits suicide. A previously unknown volcano rises from the China Sea and brings about a tsunami that destroys Shanghai. Yellowstone erupts after 640,000 years of silence. A pit in Nicaragua known as the "mouth of hell" begins violently spewing lava.
When Reporter Mick Cathcart and Marine Biologist Agnes Brach set out looking for answers, they never expected to stumble upon the biblical end times. Yet with sharks made of lava shooting from volcanoes to devour anyone in their way, how could anyone deny it?
With the help of a beleaguered priest and a billionaire industrialist, Mick and Agnes scramble to shutter the volcanoes and put down the lava sharks before the whole world burns to a cinder

Gowns Of The Haunted - Anette Darbyshire

about the author:
Anette Darbyshire was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and now lives in Kent, England with her husband, three children and two cats.
Her debut novel, Love In The Wrong Dimension, is a love story told from the perspective of a ghost and written in the style of popular romance. She is currently working on the first installment of a series about a haunted dress shop.
Anette has always been fascinated by ghosts, having had her own paranormal experiences as a child, and now loves writing about them. What Is A Ghost? is a blog she has written on her website which explores a possible scientific explanation of ghosts.

book synopsis:
Welcome to Gowns Of The Haunted, an emporium of mystery and secrets, where even the ghosts aren’t what they seem.

Broke, lonely and desperate, Kate Hardy can’t believe her luck when a stranger inadvertently hands her a lifeline. This leads her to Gowns Of The Haunted, a mysterious, quirky emporium of fashion ranging from modern day goth outfits to vintage dresses and accessories. She’s overjoyed when Jenny, the pale and enigmatic owner of the shop, offers her a job and free accommodation in the small flat above the shop.

But, it’s not called Gowns Of The Haunted for nothing and Kate soon realises that something isn’t quite right. Strange noises, flickering lights and creepy shadows keep her awake at night and, when she learns that Jenny’s sister was recently murdered in the shop, her apprehension turns to very real, and justified, fear.

Traumatised by her night terrors, Kate seeks comfort from her new friends Jenny, Lucy, her eccentric young colleague, and Josh, the attractive customer who takes a fancy to her.

But at Gowns Of The Haunted, nothing is quite what it seems and, as her safety is increasingly threatened, Kate no longer knows who to trust; the living or the dead.
