*Book Review* A Werewolf in Riverdale (Archie Horror #1)- Caleb Roehrig

44575180. sy475 Who is the Riverdale Ripper? And why is Jughead waking up covered in blood?

Based on the original Archie Comics characters!
Everyone knows the characters from Riverdale: popular Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, angsty Jughead Jones, and the sophisticated Veronica Lodge. But this is not the Riverdale you know and love. Something twisted has awoken in the town with pep. Inspired by the iconic Archie Horror comics, this reimagined universe takes the grittiness of the TV show and adds a paranormal twist.

Someone is killing the citizens of Riverdale. And after a bloody full moon, Jughead realizes he is the killer! Jughead is a werewolf. Can he keep this secret from his friends — including werewolf-hunting Betty Cooper? Jughead has to get his dark side under control — before it is controlling him.

The Archie Horror series contains all-new, original stories that fans of horror AND fans of Riverdale will eat up!

My Review

“When he finally lunged, his teeth sank deep into helpless flesh, and blood-spattered the rollicking jukebox. Jughead always enjoyed eating at the Chock’Lit Shoppe.”

It’s really no secret that I’m a whore for Riverdale/Archie Comics, especially if it’s horror based. I’ve binged the entire series and I was hooked. A few months back, I checked out some of the horror-based graphic novels and was ecstatic.

I’ve read a graphic novel called Jughead the Hunger and I loved it. So when I heard it was being turned into a full-fledged novel, I jumped right in and I wasn’t disappointed.

Gory deaths are flowing through the little town of Riverdale. Nothing ever happens in this quiet little town. Well, that is until mutilated bodies start showing up during full moon phases. When the full moon rises in the sky, the Riverdale Ripper comes out to play.

Jughead wakes up in a panic because he’s covered in blood. As the day begins, he learns an ugly truth. One of his classmates was brutally mauled last night. As pieces start to come together and he starts having visions of a brutal and bloody scene, he realizes that maybe he’s the notorious Riverdale Ripper.

The buzz going around is that it’s animal attacks but Betty and Archie know the truth…. werewolves. They both train with Bettys Aunt to learn how to fight and kill those wild beasts but could they kill a werewolf if it was one of their closest friends?

A Werewolf in Riverdale is a unique take on a graphic novel that I loved. Caleb does this novel justice and I was left needing more of this story. Even though I’ve read the book this was based on, I was glued to the pages and looking forward to reading what was going to happen next. It was magnificent.

I can’t wait to see Caleb take on more Riverdale tales!!

Life was normal for Nikki until otherworldly wolves chased her through the woods near her high school. Now she’s a target for a myriad of supernatural beings.

Three half-human, half-angels are sworn to protect her. Complicating life further, Mace, Raven, and Vine–the Halflings–are the swoon-worthy new guys at her school.

For the Halflings, safeguarding Nikki isn’t just an assignment. All of humanity hangs in the balance.

Together, they outsmart the demons hunting her, but when Nikki’s name is connected to a research laboratory bent on world domination, the stakes rise.

This is the Author’s Cut edition and was previously published as Halflings.

Praise for HALFLINGS

‘Packed with action, Halflings is stocked with a feisty, likable cast and a fantastically impossible love-triangle that made my heart flutter, race and sigh. This hard-to-put-down novel kept me up late into the night and burrowed itself into my imagination.’ ―USA Today

Unboxing: Surprise Book Mail from Entangled Teen

I came home yesterday afternoon after a long day of work and noticed a package sitting on the front porch of my house. It was addressed to me from Entangled Teen. I was not expecting anything from this amazing publishing company, so this surprise package definitely peaked my interest. And I absolutely fell in love with everything inside. Everything inside this mystery box is to celebrate the upcoming release of Haven by Mary Lindsey, which hits bookstores November 7. Haven has been on my upcoming TBR list for months, so I was beyond thrilled to receive this Haven package from Entangled Teen!

FullSizeRender (1)

The first item inside the box was a hardcover edition of Haven by Mary Lindsey. Haven is the first book in a new Young Adult Paranormal series. Check out the summary below:

Haven

“We all hold a beast inside. The only difference is what form it takes when freed.”

Rain Ryland has never belonged anywhere, He’s used to people judging him for his rough background, his intimidating size, and now, his orphan status. He’s always been on the outside, looking in, and he’s fine with that. Until he moves to New Wurzburg and meets Friederike Burkhart. 

Freddie isn’t like normal teen girls, though. And someone wants her dead for it. Freddie warns he’d better stay far away if he wants to stay alive, but Rain’s never been good at running from trouble. For the first time, Rain has something worth fighting for, worth living for. Worth dying for. 

Doesn’t this book sound amazing?! I definitely think so! Paranormal is one of my top genres for Young Adult, and if Paranormal is one of yours, too, you are not going to want to miss out on this book!

The second item in the box was a Haven themed tote bag. I am a huge lover of tote bags, and this beautiful tote bag will be joining my ever-growing collection of bookish-themed bags.

Another surprise item was a Haven themed coffee mug. I love coffee and tea so this mug will definitely not go to waste. The coffee mug is gorgeous and a perfect addition to my collection! I especially love the quote!

Also inside the box was some awesome wolf themed items! A stunningly beautiful wolf charm bookmark, one of my absolutely favorite items from this surprise box. Wolves are one of my favorite animals, and the charm is a perfect fit for me (and my Siberian Husky) so this charm will most likely be going with me wherever I go. Also with the wolf charm came two stickers: a wolf and Haven sticker. Anyone who knows me knows that stickers are one of my top bookish items (along with bookmarks, postcards, and maps) to collect. A small bag of lavender was also included in this box, which has such an amazing smell!

The last items in the box were an “I’m a Book Nerd” poster, an Entangled Teen portable charger outlet (thank you so much for this!)  and two Godiva chocolate (SUCH GOOD CHOCOLATE!!). I love the poster because it is completely true! The fact that books take up almost two/thirds of my room says enough. As I like to think, my life is not complete unless I am surrounded by books.

Thank you, Entangled Teen for such an awesome surprise box! I am beyond excited to start reading Haven by Mary Lindsey and I cannot wait to put that Haven coffee mug to use!

Haven by Mary Lindsey comes out on November 7, 2017. And if you pre-order, there is an AMAZING pre-order campaign! Check out the campaign here.
