Currently Reading #1 - Point Horror - Nightmare Hall - The Wish by Diane Hoh

The Wish (Nightmare Hall, #4)
Hey Bookaholics,
Today I'm going to be introducing you to my current read The Wish and why it may be one of the most far-fetched and weirdest Point Horrors.
Expect a lot of Point Horror reviews and currently reading posts this month because it is after all Halloween - which is almost better than Christmas in my opinion even though it's not really celebrated in the UK.
Anyway back to :
The Wish
The Wish (Nightmare Hall, #4)
(photo belongs to Goodreads)

Blurb is from the edition pictured above because I don't know anyone who could write one better than the one already printed on the back :
High on a hillside overlooking Salem University, sits Nightingale Hall. Nightmare Hall, the students call it. Because that's where the terror began...

Alex is the first to notice the strange little booth in the campus pizza place. Wishes granted, fortunes told says the sign. Inside sits The Wizard, an eerie wooden figure with sinister blue eyes.

Alex's friends all make wishes. And, one by one, their wishes come true - but in terrifying, twisted ways. Could The Wizard be behind the horror? Or is it someone else - someone with a deadly wish all of their own?
My Current Thoughts :
Freakishly weird plotline that I guess if probably more sci-fi than horror. I don't really like this cover - with the exception of the autumn leaves in the background , brown and DEAD - it would be so much better if it was a picture of the menacing Wizard.
I'm on page 66 and it's already been ridiculous - an immensely strong gust of wind attempts to blow the protagonist off of a balcony 8 floors up . Seriously Diane ? But there'll be more on these crazy features in my recap/review which will probably be posted tomorrow.
For now to keep you intrigued here's a teaser tidbit :
Teaser Tidbit
Basically a Teaser Tidbit challenge is a showcase of a taster from my current read to entice you to add it to your TBR pile.
"And although his image had completely disappeared into the veil of darkness, Alex could feel the icy blue eyes of The Wizard, watching,watching ..." page 13
Don't Forget to Follow or The Wizard may get you ...
Happy Point Horrorween !,
