My Review

Okay this is hands down the WEIRDEST book I’ve ever read. I have such a hard time describing this book because I don’t entirely understand what happened. But here are some of my thoughts

What I Liked

  1. This book has such creepy vibes. Nothing scary actually happens throughout most of this book, but the way this was written had me so anxious from the very beginning.

What I Didn’t Like

  1. The dialogue and interactions between the 2 main characters was So. Awkward. I wish I had saved some of the highlights from my ebook to share the awkwardness. This story is crazy short but I cringed a lot.
  2. WHAT WAS THAT ENDING?! If you’ve read this please explain. Because I have no idea what that was supposed to be. It made no sense. I’m just confused.

I really have nothing else to say about this. I just really didn’t understand this book at all. I’m glad I read it in October because it did have good, spooky vibes. But it definitely wasn’t for me.

If you’ve read this I would love to hear your thoughts!
