Review: I received a free copy for review from NetGalley.
I legit almost put this book down in the first few chapters. It just seems like silly high school nonsense at first, I don’t really like contemporaries which is why the setting put me off at the start. But it quickly changes and becomes something I totally did not see coming at the beginning of the book. I’m so glad I kept going because this book was so good and the ending left me shook.
SHOOK. I am shooketh. There was no way I could have seen that ending at all. It was great, I love when I’m totally blown away by a twist in a book. This definitely cemented my rating for the book, I enjoyed the whole book too. I just can’t get over the ending, twenty four hours later and I’m still just shook.
I liked how the horror and retellings worked into the novel. It was well done and I really liked them, especially since Perrie and August were trying to figure out each story that they were thrust into and work out how each one varied. I liked the chemistry between Perrie and August a lot, thought it was well done.
All the characters were really awesome and I liked them, I wasn’t really sure about the ex boyfriend Neven. I wish we got to really see more of who he was. I don’t have a very clear idea about him at all. I think the ending could be more powerful if we knew more about him, we mostly got a lot of telling from Perrie who was mad at him most of the book.
The book ends on a cliffhanger, of a sort, it could be a definite ending in my opinion but there is a lot of unanswered questions and a second book coming. I’m really eager to read the second book, I am invested in finding out what happens next.
Recommendation: If you like horror and retellings, pick up this book. It was a lot of fun to read and I highly recommend it. Also I need more people to yell about that ending with.
