I flew through this book. It was very easy to get sucked in. I figured out the little twist at the very beginning and it only took away from the story a little. I thought it had some sad parts but I didn‘t shed any tears. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Got completely sucked into this crime thriller. Usually these types of books move slowly for me and I lose track of characters etc. That wasn‘t the case with this book. I was all in and loved it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Now I want to go to Italy even more than I did before. Beautiful story about seeing different sides of people and their lives before you knew them. Deals with relationships, grief, appreciation, and finding yourself. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The first few chapters kept me interested and I was all in. It very quickly took some turns that just didn‘t make sense and I ended up just wanting it to be over. Now I‘m just confused. ⭐️⭐️

Pleasantly surprised with this book. There was mystery, suspense, and paranormal. I really liked the characters and the storyline. My only issue was I was disappointed a little with the ending but also there were a lot of characters and names to remember who was who. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Started out slow and not very interesting. The author just told about his hometown. The story progresses as the girls go missing and it becomes much more exciting. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed this story. It was original and a different take on a zombie apocalypse than any I‘ve ever read. The ending was a little too abrupt for my liking. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I loved the premise of this book and the overall story was good. I wasn‘t a fan of the writing style though. Parts of the story were told several different times from different perspectives which was a little too repetitive. The ending was also very abrupt. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The idea of this book was better than what it actually was for me. Seemed like a fantastic setting for a really spooky vibe but I wasn‘t really entertained much and just a little confused and left with a lot of questions at the end. ⭐️⭐️

Reggie I honestly think this got published off the strength of Bird Box. Like someone just threw up their hands and said let‘s make more money!!! This book was sooooo bad. 2mo

This is the story written in the wake of the me too movement. Did a good job of showing different sides to these characters and situations. The only thing I wish was just a little different was how many characters it followed was a little confusing to keep track of each persons story. Overall a good book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoyed this book but it wasn‘t what I expected. It was more history of some famously haunted places and truth telling stories. It definitely made me think and wasn‘t just a book that was made to be scary or even make you believe. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I usually have a hard time with sequels after loving the first book but that was definitely not an issue with this one. The story flowed from where Bird Box ends. This was just as eerie and exciting as the first one. The ending was mind blowing to me and very satisfying. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Enjoyed this book very much. It had a lot of twists throughout. A major mystery was solved around the 65% point of the book but the rest of the story unveiled more depth and a couple plot twists. Thanks to NetGalley for providing a digital copy to read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed the ominous setting this book took place in. It made me want to continue reading. Not a scary story but it had an unsettling undercurrent. The author does a phenomenal job with dual timelines and links them very well. You will probably know the direction the story is heading but it‘s still twisty in less severe ways. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Had high hopes for this one. I expected to love it. It didn‘t hit the mark for me. It wasn‘t a long book but the writing style was very long and drawn out in my opinion. I found myself skimming looking for a necessary part of the long paragraphs. Way too much detail. The story itself was good. Very character/setting based which isn‘t my cup of tea most is the time. Fantastic idea for a story. ⭐️⭐️
