Monday (Mini #BookReview) Madness

This week I read:

Two teachers quit their jobs and decide to build a house themselves in a remote Vermont town on land that used to be owned by witches. This book had a really interesting take on the whole haunted house trope – the freshest execution I’ve read in a while. It was a bit sluggish at times, and I didn’t love the writer’s style in the beginning, but by the end I couldn’t put it down because I had to know what happened!

This book was super creepy. Something bad is going down in the cities of the world, so the MC is on her way to pick up her aunt to take her to her sister’s compound, where they hope to stay safe. Except she gets in a wreck on the way, and can’t remember what was going on, how her wreck happened, how she got her injuries, or how she ended up in a secret mansion hidden in the woods with a strange man.

There’s so much suspense while you’re waiting for the reveals to start rolling in, because there were so many ways this one could have gone. Then it lost me a bit at the end for a couple of reasons. I won’t be reading the sequel, but I very much enjoyed this one.

Monday (Mini #BookReview) Madness

This week I read:

What an odd book! Interesting characters, intriguing premise (a haunting in a store instead of a house), and some intense scenes. I didn’t connect with the characters as much as I would have liked, which kept me from being overly vested in the outcome, but overall, great entertainment!
What I loved most about this book was the sense of 80s nostalgia. The plot was intriguing and while a horror story, it was also a book about friendship and coming of age, with just enough tongue in cheek humor to keep you smirking between wincing.

Monday (Mini #BookReview ) Madness

This week I read:

This was indie?!?! A creepy, slow burning ghost story with a twist that was dark in so many different ways! Imaginative, creative, and not afraid to deal the punches, this was more than I was expecting.
This book was smart! (Like seriously smart.) This escape room tale delivered everything I was hoping for and more with plenty of imagination, a high body count, and a twist that I feel like I should have seen coming but didn’t. My only complaint is that it was branded as the third book in the #murdertrending series, and a prequel at that, even though it really had nothing to do with the other two books and was more than strong enough to be a standalone.
