3-6-22: My 22nd finished book of 2022! Elise, an 11 year old girl, literally lives inside the walls, nooks and crannies, of her old home. After the death of her parents, with nowhere to go, Elise arrives at her old home, now occupied by a new family. The teenage boys who live there are positive that something is in their house, eating their food and moving their stuff. Will they figure out who‘s there? ⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣2️⃣2️⃣
An unusual story with a pretty literal title. Lead character Elise had taken to living in the walls of her old home after her parents untimely death. Elise, unable to move on, has returned to her old home. Complicating matters is that the home is occupied by a new family. A well written tale that deals with some dark themes related to grief and isolation among other things. I enjoyed this story. Gotta root for Elise even if she is a trespasser.
Hundred pages in and I‘m just bored.....it‘s not creepy or gothic and it‘s just not engaging me. Seem to be a lot of good reviews here/goodreads/Amazon but 🤷♀️🤷♀️
Hope to finish Left You Dead today. The others are potentials for this week.
What an absolutely absorbing read!! Though I have a million things to do, I kept finding myself picking this up for just one more quick chapter. Fast-paced, original and totally riveting, the story of not only the titular girl in the walls, but also of the family that she shared her home, makes for a memorable read! The writing is both haunting and electrically charged- the characters come to life and I totally loved it!!
I found this gothic style story very unusual and imaginative. It‘s atmospherically and vividly written with some fascinating characters. This is such a bizarre and different read but oddly gripping, a story about grief and survival. I can wholeheartedly (with a little trepidation!) recommend it. I promise you‘ll never look at the walls in your house in the same way again! 👀. #Pigeonhole
