In Episode 20 of Book Talk, Etc. Tina and Renee are talking about books that actually scared us. We share something we've been loving lately, our latest reads, a shelf addition, and have book talk about a few books that actually scared us (and one that didn't deliver). We also talk about what type of books scare us!
