Go Hunt Me
Go Hunt Me | Kelly Devos
For Dracula lovers and fans of Diana Urbans All Your Twisted Secrets, this spine-tingling thriller follows seven horror buffs as their dream trip to a remote Romanian castle turns into a nightmare when they begin to be killed one by one. Alex Rush is ready for the trip of a lifetime. She and her friends have made some creepily awesome films together throughout high school, so with only a few months left before they go their separate ways for college, theyre determined to make the best one yet: an epic documentary about the real inspiration for Dracula, filmed on location at a remote castle in Romania. But when they get there, its not quite the majestic setting they planned for. Menacing weapons line the walls, the twisted halls are easy to get lost in, and with no connection to the outside world, the group is unexpectedly off the grid. After just a few hours spent under its roof, Alex and her friends have no trouble imagining how this dark, terrifying castle inspired one of the most enduring horror novels of all time. Only soon they no longer have to use their imaginations to understand the locations terrifying historyjust as they get the documentarys first shot rolling, one of Alexs friends disappears, and shes nearly certain she saw a cloaked stranger lurking in the shadows. As more members of the group begin to meet an untimely demise, Alex is desperate to stop the bloodshed, even if it means facing a monster she never thought would be let loose.

I‘ve seen mixed reviews for this. I actually liked it. I thought the story was decent, it kept me interested, and it was pretty fast paced so it ended up being a quick read for me.

I read this for #TeamMonsterMash and #scarathlon2022. Glad I read it but not one I would normally pick up. I think they‘d do fine with about two fewer characters to keep track of. There is a twist at the end.

StayCurious did you figure out the twist in advance? 1mo
Bookishgal71 I thought there was a twist, but I did not see this one coming. Did you?

A group of teenagers are working in a short film and this will be part of the project for Alex to enter to college. There is a possibility to travel to Romania to make the film and a fundraising is open to help with film costs. In Romania various murders occurred and everything is confused. Which parts are related with the real world which parts are related with the film? Surprised, didn‘t expect those twits. ⬇️

#Scarathlon2022

Finished earlier in the week for #TeamMonsterMash I think it suffered as a section a day #buddyread & picked up at the end when I read it all at once. As some of the others, I had the big twist figured out & found most of the characters annoying so just a so-so for me.

As team buddy read, it gets me 50 points & about 247 #ScararthlonWordSearch points (I may have missed a few) + an extra 15 for a #ScarathlonDailyPrompts bonus ⬇️

#Scarathlon2022 #TeamMonsterMash @StayCurious I was so disappointed with this book. The characters were so shallow and I wasn't sure about the Lord King pin in the story for value in the plot. I never saw the ending coming. I actually thought they were all guilty at one point. (222 word search points) @Catsandbooks #Spookaween

I would never have picked this book to read and might not have finished it if it wasn‘t for the #TeamMonsterMash buddy read for #Scarathlon2022. 😅 I hated every single character but that twist ending I didn‘t see coming at all! So it bumped the book from a 2 to a 3.

#ScarathlonBuddyRead for #TeamMonsterMash #Scarathlon - I struggled reading this a section at a time to be honest, think I would have enjoyed it more by devouring in one sitting! Like some others, I guessed the twist about halfway through, and was great this morning to fly through the back 1/4 of the book, very enjoyable!

StayCurious Sometimes it's hard to read a book slowly! I agree it was better read quickly 1mo

#ScarathlonBuddyRead Guys, I just had to finish it to find out if I was right - and without spoiling it for others, I totally called it right before they got to Romania. In the end I liked the story, although I don‘t think it made for a good slow reading buddy read. This one is meant to be read quickly. Thanks to everyone who read along with me: give yourselves an extra 100 points for putting up with my memes 😂

Read-y_Picker Yes definitely agree. If anyone DNFed or if having trouble with the slow read just go ahead and finish it! @StayCurious did you really call everything?! 1mo

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.221-231: Alex and Jax are walking through the woods and Jax starts saying he doesn‘t want to go home, or to film school and he wants things to be different. Before Alex can talk sense into him, they see the man in the mask. Jax of course takes off running and they get separated. When Alex finds Jax in a maze, he‘s being killed in a downright horrible scene. At this point I need to know what‘s happening…should I just finish?

SeaToSkyes I just finished the audiobook. I got behind in the readalong, then once I was caught up I had to finish it! 1mo

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.212-220 - in the light of day the group decides that they need to split up - mainly because Reagan refuses to travel out to the road. So Alex and Jax head out to find cell signal and the road and Hazel, Reagan, and the seemingly delicate Kenna stay behind to find the computer or phone those strange cables are linked to. It‘s not a great plan. I think they should get out of dodge. But this is a horror story after all.

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.169-211: Sorry I‘ve been MIA! Threw party for my son‘s bday & haven‘t left kitchen in 3 days😅Things are really getting good now. It‘s pretty clear someone has come to Prahova to kill off the kids 1 by 1…or is it one of them? Are they being hunted or stalked by one of their own? They find Carter‘s grewsome decapitated body, Maddie is dead and the others are starting to get suspicious of each other. It‘s great!

Read-y_Picker It really feels like someone‘s setting Alex up. I get the feeling that she‘s being filmed and that her crew are in on it like in the beginning at Kennas house. I mean, they even got Maddie out of the way early, she could be doing the makeup and effects on subsequent bodies… 1mo

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.154-168 - Maddie is missing and the group splits up (always a good idea) to find her. Jax and Alex head outside to the terrace in the storm. On the way Jax notices that it looks as though the blood in the kitchen was staged. Someone is trying to scare them. Outside, Jax falls down the stairs and finds Maddie‘s body - so what happened? Did she fall and hit her head or did she meet with a more sinister end?

KristiAhlers Yeah I was yelling at the kindle when they split up 🤣. Sigh what could possibly go wrong? 2mo

#ScarathlonBuddyRead Pg.145-153: this was a decent chapter for spookiness. The kids are left alone in the castle and in the middle of the night Alex hears someone playing music. Turns out to be the man in the mask she thought she saw earlier and she catches him on video but he disappears. And so does Maddie. Alex goes after her but finds the kitchen flooded by the storm and a bunch of blood…things are starting to get good now. 🩸 ⛈

AmandaBlaze The book definitely seems staged in two parts, what happens in the US and what happens in Romania. I like the action in and around the castle better rather than hearing them whine at each other in the US. 2mo

It was hard to pinpoint their ages for me. They were worried about having sex and making fun of them for not having sex, but then they were afraid to be out and about without an adult… I didn‘t expect the ending but I still had a bunch of questions.

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.123-133: So the scream was for a bat - which - if you think about where they are - is pretty spooky. Kenna is acting strange, Maddie is too, and Alex reflects on how Jax has all the power in their group and possibly their relationship. Reagan claims he is looking into the lost money but later we find out that he never messaged Go Fund Me. So many questions…although I have my theories on how things are going to go.

AmandaBlaze My initial theory around this point (I finished the book) was Reagan was behind everything. He's really smart and into Alex and has some animosity towards Jax. The group seems to pretty much ignore him when he isn't doing something techy. Plus Devos kept mentioning how “nice“ he is. 2mo

#ScarathlonBuddyRead Pg112-122: the author basically spends some time setting the creepy scene in the castle. Lots of statues of Vlad and dark artwork and swords hanging on walls, and hanging chandeliers and electricity that may not last through the upcoming storm. Jax and Alex are starting to light their own fire when they are interrupted by a scream. Finally, something is happening.

MoonWitch94 IT. BEGINS!! 🫣🥳 2mo
AmandaBlaze I admit if I wasn't doing this as a buddy read, I might have bailed early on this one. 100+ pages is a little much to go without a lot of (any?) action in a thriller/horror novel. 2mo

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I think the scream is going to be over something silly. Maybe Hazel or Maddie spotted a rat or something.

Crumbling around them in some spots and modern in others - interesting how Bloom was strategic with the photos she showed them so that she could get them there. A storm is brewing and the creepy caretaker leaves them on their own. Things should start getting spooky now.

My only cons are that the action sequences feel a bit labored & drawn out; the action gets lost in the over saturated details of the location. And, there were still some questions I had at the end; everything seems too quickly wrapped up. I also wished that the characters were more developed; some just seemed to be there to keep numbers equal. But overall, a really fun read.

🎃66 points for #TeamMonsterMash #BuddyRead #Scarathlon

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.76-100. The group arrives in Romania, and Catrinel Bloom takes off. Turns out she was using them as cover for going to a very expensive rehab. They find out they‘ll be with her creepy cousin, and someone stole all their Go Fund Me money. Kenna in particular is upset by this - which is strange. I think it was Catrinel tbh. Rehabs don‘t pay for themselves. The kids decide to go to the castle anyway - great idea!

AmandaBlaze This part kind of reminds me of a Scooby-Doo mystery, “Let's stay at the creepy castle. Nothing bad could possibly happen there!“ 2mo
MoonWitch94 It‘s truly bizarre. I agree with @AmandaBlaze that this is giving Scooby & The Gang vibes. 2mo

Read-y_Picker Yes, totally in agreement! I also would have just gone to the castle. I mean you‘re already there and it‘s spring break so only a few days… really sick of Alex constantly fawning over the bf. We get it already. Also all you friends are terrible. I‘m glad if she survives them all. 2mo
StayCurious @Read-y_Picker maybe she‘s the one who ends up killing them lol - that would be a twist 2mo
StellarDoc "Count1897" made me laugh. 2mo
JacqMac Yes, yes, and yes. 2mo

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.60-75: Alex has a very cryptic conversation with her friend Maddie that leaves us with more questions than answers. Then Catrinel Bloom arrives and offers up the use of a castle to film their movie - Alex can‘t believe her luck! Finally things seem to be looking up - especially when their fundraiser really starts working too. But when you‘re up, the fall down tends to be worse.

KristiAhlers This all seems just too “perfect” and I have a feeling these friends are going to start breaking up into teams as it were once they get over there. 2mo
StellarDoc Catrinel Bloom is the most interesting character right now. 2mo

MoonWitch94 It‘s too good to be true…… 2mo
MoonWitch94 @Bookishgal71 It‘s highly suspect. It‘s trip is doomed! Lol 😂 2mo
bthegood For a director- Alex really lacks some basic observational skills - and the things she does observe she tends to ignore - 🤦‍♀️ 2mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I‘m not sure I‘d call this group a group of “friends”, honestly. I definitely don‘t trust Catrinel either. Despite us already knowing things don‘t end well for this group once they reach the castle, I don‘t have good feelings about this trip. 2mo
Read-y_Picker @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I‘m with you 100% on that. 2mo
JacqMac I have been playing catch up. These “friends” are so ugh! This trip is going to be interesting. 2mo
Nessavamusic They are a hot mess and Alex seems a little passive to be a successful director… 2mo
StayCurious @Nessavamusic I totally agree 2mo

Mehso-so

I absolutely hated most of it, and only got past chapter one because it is my #teammonstermash buddy read.🤷🏻 Although I mostly hated it...it had a massive twist at the end that I didn't see coming! @StayCurious

StayCurious yeah I'm not enjoying it much either :( 2mo

Good YA read about 7 friends in a remote castle getting killed one by one - stereotypical teen drama and bad decisions - good twists - I enjoyed it.

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.48-59: Alex‘s friends (who aren‘t very nice to each other btw) started a Go Fund Me page to make a longer version of her film. They all have their own interests at heart but it‘s still nice that they are willing to do something that will directly help Alex. And Reagan - well, he likes Alex as more than a friend it seems, so he‘s hoping she will finally see him. Still, they have a plan. Let‘s see how it plays out.

Read-y_Picker Yeah is this actually a friend group or just a group of people with a common interest and goal each looking out for themselves? Kind of feels like they‘re forced together. Or is Alex the glue and they all fit into her life separately? 2mo
AmandaBlaze Sometimes they seem like frenemies, don't they? 2mo

StayCurious @Read-y_Picker @AmandaBlaze maybe it‘s done by the author on purpose so we don‘t get too attached 2mo
StellarDoc I'm keeping an eye on Reagan, for sure! 2mo
KristiAhlers Me thinks this group is definitely made up of frenemies and that it‘s going to be a case of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer. 2mo
BooksNBowls I think everyone is just looking out for themselves. But we also have to keep in mind this story is being told by Alex. She seems paranoid about everyone. Unreliable narrator? 2mo

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.37-47: Poor Alex. She‘s set her hopes and dreams on going to Film school and she gets waitlisted, while Jax gets in. So unfair - but the cynical part of me knows this is the way of the world. She runs into Catrinel Bloom again (the Romanian actress that will I‘m sure play a part in what happens next) who basically tells her it doesn‘t matter that she is talented, and Alex should get used to that. This book is depressing😕

MoonWitch94 UGHHHHH I was so mad. As an artist, don‘t screw with my art! Especially without my permission & as my partner—what a betrayal. So. Much. Misogyny. But what Catrinel says in the bathroom happens every day, in every space. 😞 2mo
AmandaBlaze The scares pick up when they get to Romania. 2mo

Bookworm54 I was so shocked that Jax figured he could re-edit the film for his application without even asking or mentioning it. Alex needs new friends… 2mo
KristiAhlers I was angry for her when Jax did what he did. So frustrating to be honest. And I was upset with her for being not more upset if that makes sense. 2mo
Read-y_Picker This book is just so depressing. Just keep turning the knife. I can't wait for someone to get killed!! 2mo
StayCurious @Read-y_Picker I know right? 2mo
JacqMac So depressing! I‘m frustrated for her. Like @Read-y_Picker said, bring on the murder. lol 2mo
Bookishgal71 When I was younger, I got waitlisted for my top choice while my boyfriend got in. I had a higher GPA and more extracurriculars. I called the school and they basically told me that they had filled their quota of white girls. He was an Asian male - they hadn‘t filled that quota yet. College acceptances are not blind. This is hitting close to home. Gonna keep reading it though. 2mo
Read-y_Picker @Bookishgal71 that is really rough but sounds accurate. I‘m sorry that happened to you. Again this story is just so depressing and frustrating so far. Glad you‘re able to keep with it for now! 2mo
bthegood Alex's friends are not very good to her - Kenna and Jax are very self absorbed! 2mo
StellarDoc I'm so ready for some of these "friends" to bite the dust! 2mo

What in the Holy gen-z is this crap??? It is so bad. I'm only still listening to this audiobook for scarathlon points. I don't give a shit how many followers this bitch has...and the writing is so immature. The main character is a DRAMA QUEEN. Ugh

#bookspinbingo card! Also working on #promptmaze for #scarathlon … and the one good thing about Covid is I have watched a TON of spooky stuff!! OG IT, AHS, what we do in the shadows, ghosts to name but a few! Also enjoying the #scarathlonbuddyread although I‘m reading a section per day (I can‘t stop reading in the middle of a chapter it just feels wrong 🤣) so I‘m slightly out but enjoying reading everyone‘s comments once I get to the right bit!

A solid horror entry. It was a little slow in the beginning, but picked up once the reached Romania. It has a nice twist at the end. It's another good book for Word Search points.

#ScarathlonBuddyRead pg.27-36: things are pretty tough for Alex‘s family. It can‘t be easy when she‘s dating The Rich Boy in school and has wealthy friends. But I feel worse for her little sister. Should a 13 year old really be stuck working the family business? I get that the mom‘s desperate, but that‘s rough. Also, all descriptions of Alex‘s relationship with Jax make it seem as though she‘s not really happy. Poor Alex.

StellarDoc It seems like she thinks she should be happy and something is wrong with her if she isn't. Poor kid. 2mo
KristiAhlers This actually made my heart sad. I get mom is desperate but let a kid be a kid 2mo
See All 6 Comments
Read-y_Picker I want to know how that relationship came about? Was it a She's All That situation? I hope Alex gets what she deserves in the end. Why is this story so disheartening and frustrating from the beginning?
Very sad for Meredith. It's good of her to be helping out and I guess it could have gone very wrong for a young girl who's family can't afford to keep her in any activities... But her mom should at least make an effort to support her dreams.
2mo
MoonWitch94 I think its unfortunate that kids loose their childhood when they have a sick parent. But that is an unrealistic amount of pressure to just ASSUME your kids will take over your business, leaving them no option for anything else. Don‘t put your dreams on others. And Alex & Jax relationship is worrisome; but typical teenager. I hope Alex finds her power. 2mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Agree with everything said here. It‘s one thing for the kids to help out with household chores so that the parents can focus on business, etc. but foisting the family business on their shoulders is definitely not the way to go. It also sounded like this was going on before dad got sick..? Alex comments on how she used to do what Meredith is doing, so it seems like she was already doing work for the business. And I despise Jax. 😒 2mo
