‘The Dolls': Booktuber Benjaminoftomes gets creepy in his latest video “Death by the Dolls”

If you’ve read ‘The Dolls’ or have at least kept up with 6 episodes which were released over the last month, then you’ll know that it’s a downright creepy read, at times. Lots of ghosty goings on and a bit of witchcraft too, ‘The Dolls’ is packed full of thrills.

Benjaminoftomes takes those creepy vibes and puts them in a video. We see this cutie wandering the woods with his own copy of Kiki Sullivan’s debut novel, with snakes and voodoo dolls and fire – and OH MY GOSH WHAT IS THAT? START RUNNING.

Check it out right now, on  Maximum Pop.

The Dolls: Kiki Sullivan’s latest song for her sultry, supernatural novel WITH ADDIE

If you’re like us, you’ll be devouring Kiki Sullivan’s ‘The Dolls’ as soon as it hits the shelves, and until then, you’ll be snatching up anything to do with this Mean Girls-meets-magic story.

Look no further.

Peregrine and Chloe are Carrefour’s own celebrities, of sorts: impossibly beautiful, fabulously wealthy and leagues above everyone else in coolness. Therefore, it’s only natural to give them a theme song, and one that matches their “can kill a man with their high heels” vibe.

‘The Dolls': Episode 6 is here and we FINALLY get to meet the infamous Dolls

Episode 6 has hit our screens, and we couldn’t be more excited. From the get go, we’ve been in a frenzied state of reading to get to Eveny’s meeting with the Dolls – the two beautiful, intimidating and mysterious girls who have Carrefour under their thumb.

And now we’re here. Dressed to kill at the funeral Eveny attends with Drew, the Dolls make themselves known – only to be surprised by Eveny’s return after so many years.

Prepare yourselves for quality time with Drew Grady and a creepy-ass dream.

Get the next instalment on Amazon or Google, and let us know what you think. Is Eveny in for some trouble, or do the Dolls just seem mean? Does Drew have a thing for Eveny, or are they “just friends”?

‘The Dolls’ goes pop: if this sultry Southern novel was a musical we’d totally cast Florrie, Nick Jonas and MORE

In the lead up to the release of this hot, new supernatural novel ‘The Dolls’, here at MP!, we’ve been daydreaming about the day it gets turned into a movie – a poptastic movie.

Check out the low-down on which of our fave pop acts we’d want playing the characters from ‘The Dolls’  – and leave us a message if you have any suggestions on who would feature in your ideal cast.

Eveny

Rolling in from New York is this red-haired botany nerd. Eveny is as confused by Carrefour as we are, and she doesn’t shy away from the mystery the Southern town is steeped in. We could totally see Florrie playing Eveny (with some hair dye), this girl drummer/model/singer being on the same cool level as Kiki Sullivan’s lead.

Liv 

Eveny meets Liv at Carrefour’s own private boarding school. From the Périphérie with a passion for all things music, Liv’s got big dreams of managing the next global phenomenon and  owning a record studio. We think Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei would be perfect to play her!
