Experiment in Terror by Karina Halle (series review)

Name of series: Experiment in Terror
Author: Karina Halle
Number of books: 10 parts, 7 have been published

Goodreads Summary
In a large, flaky nut­shell, the Exper­i­ment in Ter­ror Series is an eight-part sci-fi/fantasy/horror series that revolves around a pair of ghost hunters. Well, aspir­ing ghost hunters, any­way. After film­ing a creepy expe­ri­ence in her uncle’s dilap­i­dated light­house, 22-year old Perry Palomino becomes a YouTube and inter­net star overnight. She attracts the atten­tion of Dex Foray, a pro­ducer and cam­era­man for a site that spe­cial­izes in var­i­ous webisodes, who con­vinces her to be a host for a low-budget ghost hunt­ing series. The only prob­lem is, nei­ther Perry or Dex are entirely “with it” — I mean, they see ghosts, after all. And when the duo isn’t wrestling with their very notion of real­ity, they’re grap­pling with a work­ing rela­tion­ship that’s deep-cut with sex­ual ten­sion. As the series moves on, lead­ing Perry and Dex to new locales and super­nat­ural sit­u­a­tions, their lives become more and more inter­twined, where they dis­cover that ghosts aren’t the only things that can haunt them.

(It says 8 parts in the summary on the website but when I checked there were supposed to be 10)
I feel this crazy need to watch Ghost hunting shows. I used to dislike them because they scared me even when I kept on telling myself how lame they are. But after reading the first two books I felt this crazy urge to watch every goddamn Ghost hunting show there is. I watched 2 episodes of two different ghost hunting shows. I hated them both. All the time i was watching them I kept on thinking how bad they were and how the “ghost hunters” could never compare to Dex and Perry. It really sucks. I mean I wasn’t even goddamn scared. I kept on trying to be scared or at least enjoy the shows but you know I kept on thinking how fake they were. After that I searched Experiment in Terror on google to see if somehow magically there WAS infact a ghosthunting show by that name. No such luck.
Damn you Karina. Why are you so GOODYOU KNOW I AM NOT EVEN A FAN OF HORROR. Yet here you have me under your spell.
