Rules for Vanishing
Rules for Vanishing | Kate Alice Marshall
35 posts | 40 read | 60 to read
In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister--at all costs. Once a year, the path appears in the forest and Lucy Gallows beckons. Who is brave enough to find her--and who won't make it out of the woods? It's been exactly one year since Sara's sister, Becca, disappeared, and high school life has far from settled back to normal. With her sister gone, Sara doesn't know whether her former friends no longer like her...or are scared of her, and the days of eating alone at lunch have started to blend together. When a mysterious text message invites Sara and her estranged friends to "play the game" and find local ghost legend Lucy Gallows, Sara is sure this is the only way to find Becca--before she's lost forever. And even though she's hardly spoken with them for a year, Sara finds herself deep in the darkness of the forest, her friends--and their cameras--following her down the path. Together, they will have to draw on all of their strengths to survive. The road is rarely forgiving, and no one will be the same on the other side.

New theory: young adult horror delivers the right amount of thrills and chills, without haunting my subconscious after reading. I loved the mixed media aspect. I very much appreciate that as much as the characters were developed and relationships were navigated, we skipped the teen angst and got right down to a harrowing journey, with just enough wrapped up at the end. I would love to see Ashford and Abby again in a series. Great rep as well!

Spooky, action packed, keeps you guessing and wondering and trying to figure it out.

This is a hard book to review. I loved some of the creative aspects to the story and there is some truly creepy supernatural horror here. The characters weren‘t well done though and some plot points were sloppy. I enjoyed reading it, but it‘s ultimately forgettable.

Interesting premise, had me hooked but all in all, I just felt like towards the end, it went all over the place. Entertaining, but I wasn‘t wowed

Another creepy, unusual, compelling story for October that I really enjoyed. This one really was hard to put down because I wanted to know what was going on. So much is confusing or kinda "down the rabbit hole" if you don't pay attention,, but that's what kept me reading. I wasn't really expecting the the ending either.

Only a So-So for me (I just couldn't connect)...but it could be Pick for others. Could be a perfect pick for a Halloween read. Features ghostly legends, and mysterious disappearances. Told in a faux-documentary style.

I dont know how I feel about it. But it was my first thriller/horror genre at all, and I dont want to read more horror genre at all, to scary for me, or a least no story with ghost 🙅🏾‍♀️

I've got a great stack of books in my room, more in my office, and all the time in the world to read for the next five weeks. Sounds great, right? DEPRESSION SNEAK ATTACK! Suddenly, even picking up a book feels next to impossible. Not really sure how to proceed here. Anyone have any advice for reading while depressed?

Caterina Oof I'm so sorry! I don't have experience with depression, but I know a friend of mine finds it helpful to listen to audiobooks while lying in bed when it's bad. (When I'm having fibro fog, an audiobook + reading along can be helpful for me.) Also go easy on yourself, and I hope you feel better soon ❤️ 3y
RiaWritten @Caterina Thank you! That's all really great advice. I have a ton of audiobooks so that might be a really good place to start. 3y

I fucking loved this book! Like, I have been in such a rut for the last year when it comes to what I‘ve been reading; this, I could not put down and did not have to talk myself into continuing. It was creepy and thrilling and just the right amount of loose ends to make me absolutely voracious for more. If you love a good ghost story, pick this book.

One of my favorite thrillers (let alone YA thriller) of the season! I was so surprised and creeped out by this book. Perfect for someone who doesn‘t love horror but likes to be creeped out!

My copy had a printing error where an entire signature was stitched in upside-down, but it was at such an intense and twisty moment that my heart stopped and I didn‘t know if it was intentional or not.

I devoured this in one sitting & let my bath get cold because I didn‘t want to get out until I was done.

This is between a pick and a so-so for me. I was hooked almost from the beginning. I couldn‘t turn the pages fast enough. It was a creepy read perfect to for this month. But when I finished it I felt like it was missing something. I felt like it was going to have a different ending. But overall it was a good read! This is my 4th completed book in the #24b4monday readathon!

My first book for the #readathon
So far it‘s a bit Blair witch like and told through a mixed media format which I appreciate. Also unreliable narrators which makes things interesting.

I kept going back and forth with whether I would read this one or not. My TBR pile is bonkers and I have some other books out that have bigger hold lists... but at the same time I‘ve been looking for a good horror all month and some of the best I‘ve read in the last few years have been YA. #scarathlon #teamStoker 1 point

This was really easy to read and a lot of the imagery was quite creepy for a YA. Enjoyed it a lot and definitely want to read more from this author in the future.

Rules for Vanishing is the perfect fall read to get you in the mood for Halloween. It follows Sara and her group of friends as they enter the Briar Cliff forest in search of Sara‘s missing sister, Becca. The fictional legend of Lucy Gallows plays a big part in the book, adding to the creep factor. I loved this YA book and hope you will, too!

A unique YA horror, mystery, thriller mash-up that sucked me in, but the story quickly became confusing. I enjoyed the flowing and atmospheric writing style but the book felt too long. If the pace and rhythm of the first 40 pages stayed consistent through the entire book, it could have earned 5 stars easily. The discombobulated and hard to follow timeline was a major flaw.

Thank you to Goodreads for granting me an ARC through Giveaways.

I read this book in a day. It was creepy and suspenseful and mysterious and I couldn‘t put it down. I was so excited to get this advanced copy and it did not disappoint. A group of teens go into the woods to search for their lost friend based on a ghost story. When they enter the woods, the rules they need to follow become harder and harder and scarier as they progress. Awesome story.
