How to Survive Your Murder | Danielle Valentine
12 posts | 9 read | 9 to read
Scream meets Happy Death Day in this terrifying stand-alone horror novel from YA scream queen Danielle Valentine. Alice Lawrence is the sole witness in her sisters murder trial. And in the year since Claires death, Alices life has completely fallen apart. Her parents have gotten divorced, shes moved into an apartment that smells like bologna, and she is being forced to face her sisters killer and a courtroom full of people who doubt what she saw in the corn maze a year prior. Claire was an all-American girl, beautiful and bubbly, and a theater star. Alice was a nerd who dreamed of becoming a forensic pathologist and would rather stay at home to watch her favorite horror movies than party. Despite their differences, they were bonded by sisterhood and were each others best friends. Until Claire was taken away from her. On the first day of the murder trial, as Alice prepares to give her testimony, she is knocked out by a Sidney Prescott look-alike in the courthouse bathroom. When she wakes up, it is Halloween night a year earlier, the same day Claire was murdered. Alice has until midnight to save her sister and find the real killer before he claims another victim.

I liked this novel! Alice is a tough girl and I enjoyed her strength and perseverance. The descriptions of the characters, events and settings paint a complete picture of the narrative, which was easy to follow as well. How to Survive Your Murder is a novel adults and young adults can enjoy, and its a great stepping stone for young adults who enjoy horror but aren‘t ready for more serious ones. This was a great page-turner that kept me guessing.

Enjoyed this one, but beware that the ending is unexpected. #scarathlon #teamslaughter @Clwojick Also my pick for “knife” for the daily prompt challenge as a knife is a prominent weapon in this one. 🎃📖🔪

I was excited to read this book. To me, it took awhile to get to the point of the story. Once it did the book picked up some. I did like the concept of the story. I was a little disappointed in the ending. I understand the references to horror movies, but I felt it was too much. I would not say this is a bad book, just didn‘t completely work for me. It was a quick read & there is a lot of enjoyable parts.

Not bad for totals since I failed at posting this week- I still have so many books to post and review, so expect next week to be much bigger. I did DNF a book, which was Manhunt, which was a little too splatter punky and depressing for me to finish. Still love the cover though. Lots of great reads to come though!

I loved the plot, and it gave me Final Girls movie vibes (which if you like horror-comedy, I totally recommend). I'm not so sure I loved the ending though, which was a bit of a let down. #Scarathlon #TeamSlaughter @Clwojick Word Search- 457.

This book is exactly what I expected with one thing I didn't quite figure out till the end. I had pretty good idea of the culprit from the beginning and their reasoning after learning more. I think the key to enjoying this book is in remembering that's it's YA. It was an easy listen and it had plenty of 90's slasher flick references. I enjoyed it despite figuring things out.

I love YA horror and this novel is meeting all of my expectations so far. It's so fantastically gruesome and unbelievable and I'm loving every moment of the audiobook! Definitely a pick so far.

MidnightBookGirl I just read this too- it really reminded me of the movie Final Girls. Still not sure how I feel about the ending though. Looking forward to your thoughts on it! 2mo

3½⭐ (Between a Pick and a So-So)
This was quite fun…it did get a tad juvenile at times but for the most part it stayed in the “YA that works for all ages” zone. It did have a few gaping plot holes especially once you get to the twisty, but kind of a sucky ending. Like I get what happened…but it seriously opened up so many more questions for me…that didn‘t really get answers.

2.25 stars-
Another HIGHLY predictable “thriller“ I saw 75% of the twists coming at least an hour before they happened, most at least 2 hours.
Most of the characters were flat, and I didn't really care much when they died because we didn't know that much about them.
It did have some good quotes though. And the narrator was excellent.
