There really isn‘t anything particularly special about Baby Teeth, but I enjoyed it. It‘s the type of book I‘d recommend in passing. Not the type of ‘You have to read this‘ more of a ‘If you get a chance you should check this out.‘ There is a decent amount of suspense and intrigue to keep you wanting to read to the end, but it does get a bit repetitive. And there is a major plot point that‘s a little overly convenient. Still, if you get a chance…

I have so many conflicting emotions about this novel. I over-hyped it in my head and it wasn't as creepy as I expected. I feel kind of bad for Hanna in a way. I also think it desperately needs an epilouge at the end, and I'm actually frustrated that there isn't one. Overall a pick for me! Also I read this all in one day. My eyes are tired.

I DNFed this one. Not a bad book, but definitely not for me. I despised the MC, Suzette. I found her intolerably simpering. And I've never wanted a child to die before but, sheesh, Hanna was truly despicable lol! Anyway, I didn't make it past p50. I have a huge TBR. It's on to The Change!

A low pick: I can‘t decide if this is more a bad parenting story or an evil child story? Probably equal parts both. So much of the parenting frustrated me and parts even made me angry, but the kid was still quite evil.

Either way, this story kept my mind off of the fact that two of my three kiddos are leaving for college in western NC this week. For this reason (pure escapism) I‘ve been reading horror stories for the past few weeks.

I can see this title is somewhat divisive but I really enjoyed this chilling parenting tale! I can imagine this when I see how some kids are with their parents. This one is like watching a train wreck. Very well done.

I quite thoroughly enjoyed this one…until the final few chapters. Little bit too neat & tidy of a conclusion.

I actually feel like I‘m not actually finished, even though I am🤬😡🤬. Like a cliffhanger but worse ‘cause there is no follow-up or conclusion (that I know of) coming.

This story is just wild!😱 what a whirlwind of events. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next!

For one - if my husband doesn‘t believe our child is trying to kill me, he‘s going to have issues!!😂

Hana is a special litter girl, and she really loves her Daddy. Much, much more than… Mommy…
She will need to be dealt with so Hana and Daddy can be happy.

I hope for a sequel! Where will Hana be then!?😬

I like how Stage explores the ambivalence of motherhood and the identity shifts that accompany becoming parents, but the story is a little too step-by-step and the characters a little too flat for me. I don't find fictional therapy sessions interesting (not just because fictional mental health treatment is so unrealistically effective and easy to access), and WHY haven't these people childproofed their house? At least stop sharpening the pencils.

I‘m not entirely sure how I feel about this book. It was an interesting premise but I didn‘t really like any of the characters. Hanna‘s POV was kind of interesting but I don‘t know. I think this was just a so-so for me.

I did finally finish my June #bookspin anyway. Another off my TBR

I read this earlier in the year and was blown away. I couldn't stop thinking about it. I highly recommend this book to anyone I meet. It is one of the most disturbing books I have read in a while. Very well constructed characters. A mother grapples with her difficult daughter who is completely different with her than she is with her husband. Things start to escalate and she begins to fear for her life... easy five stars.

The book is at its best when it really pushes tough questions around parenting, abuse, and generational trauma. However, Stage backs away from some of these questions where they should have and could have dug in deeper. As a result, the characters often felt flat. Narrative wise, the second half of the book also feels repetitive. A so-so read in the end.

Reviews were mixed at book club, and while there are lots of ways I think this could have been a better book, it still kept me on the edge of my seat and gave me legit anxiety. Probably don't read this book if you have young children/will ever even maybe have children/already suspect your child might be plotting to murder you.
Book 22 of 2021.

Completed my first book of the new year! I saw a ton of reviews going in that this book was improbable and unbelievable. After reading I can whole heartedly confirm that‘s not true. I‘ve MET kids like this. I work with families like this on a daily basis, and yes, sometimes it is HORRIFYING. Overall, I felt this book did a wonderful job of portraying some very real effects of mental illness on an entire family. (More below)!

Inkblotsandcoffeestains That being said, I don‘t think this should be a book portrayed as this creepy psychological thriller, because it‘s just a bit TOO real for me. 2y

Between a Pick and So-So.
Despite it not being entirely believable it is slightly horrifying and scarily thrilling in the vein of The Good Son and other movies involving unnatural kids. Also, the audio is fairly well performed, despite performing for both the mother and the child. Gabra Zackman did well at differentiating between the two.

Prior to starting Baby Teeth I knew what the basic plot was, but as I mentioned in a previous post I found it to be more of a black comedy. The comedic aspect wore off a bit somewhere around the halfway mark where a paranormal element creeped in. I found this element to be an interesting direction for Stage to take the book & although I found the ending to be less than satisfactory, it was a day well spent & a nice reminder of why👇

vivastory I don't have children. And in the spirit of surprised expectations, I give you links to two of my fave recut trailers: Mrs Doubtfire Recut as a Horror Movie & Midsommar But Its a Feel Good Romantic Comedy

Loved this book! It follows the pov of Hanna, a seven year old mute girl who thinks life would be perfect if only she could get rid of her mother; and her mother Suzette who is at her wit's end dealing with her daughter's unusual, difficult, and frightening behavior. So many emotions! I felt the frustration, sadness, and fear of these characters and was seriously invested. Is Hanna ill or evil? Is Suzette crazy? 🖤 guessing the whole way.

I felt just awful the entire time! The switch perspectives between the mother and the daughter was insane! I feel so bad for both of them because no one is at fault, I don‘t know how I would react if my daughter was a psychopath. I also don‘t know how I would react if I was a psychopath. I also understand the selfishness that the mother and the dad feel about their relationship and their parenting. No one is the villain. Now trashy television!

*gulp* Occasional eye-roll moments but for the most part...a terrifying domestic thriller. Think Damien from The Omen. Hanna is a 7-yo psychopath but only reveals this behavior to her mother. Thus her father thinks she's a perfect angel. The story is told in alternating chapters from the perspective of the mother and child and is complete with a creepy Hollywood ending. I finished at 1:00am and thanked the baby Jesus that I don't have kids.

Well this was unsettling. Also, having recently read We Need to Talk About Kevin, it seemed pretty familiar. I liked the back and forth perspective of the mom and daughter, and it was a creepy story. I think we all have a fear of being in a situation where something is happening, but no one believes us. Some of us have lived that, and it‘s terrifying. So this was a good, quick and tense read.
