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
- 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
- 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.
- 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!
