“A flat clank issued from the shelter. Something metal hit something else metal, and moving shadows made scruffling noises. From the murky darkness of the campsite‘s edge, they watched a large and blundering creature emerge into the firelight.”

“The girls returned to their own belongings. In their absence, a few pine needles had fallen upon Neena‘s pack.”

I‘m afraid of everything - strange men, the woods, wild animals, the dark. This book tapped into all of that. It‘s a slow start then explodes with action and I couldn‘t put it down. It‘s a bit outlandish, but that was almost a form of comic relief.

I woke up early yesterday, so I got lots of reading in, and then read before conking out for sleep. I finished Perfect Remains and started my reread of The Woods Are Always Watching for book club, which I managed to finish before bed, so I started Be My Ghost.

I see this one gets some hate, but for my money, it was great. It was a quick read, but still managed to tap into some pretty real fears many of us have about being in the woods and off the grid, and show some character growth. Sure, the girls could be petty with one another, but who hasn't been there in their teens? PICK.

LitStephanie Sounds good to me, adding! 3mo

I wish it had been a bit longer (with a more drawn out ending) but loved the creepy vibes it gave me.

ShyBookOwl I loved this one too! Once it hit the halfway mark, I couldn't put it down 3mo

NEENA CUT THE engine, and the speakers went silent. #firstlinefridays

Just watched There's Someone Inside Your House last night and realized this morning that it was based on a book. I'm always on the hunt for women writing horror, so I thought I'd check out one of the author's other books for Spooktober 🎃🕸

Emilymdxn This sounds so spooky and right up my alley! 3mo
ShyBookOwl @Emilymdxn Same! I hope it's good 3mo
LitStephanie How was There's Someone In Your House? 3mo
ShyBookOwl @LitStephanie I liked it. If you enjoy slashers, I'd say it's worth your time. Especially this time of year 3mo

The ending of this book made me exclaim out loud "Really! OMG! Just, really?" You have to read it because the ending is just dumpster fire ridiculous. The first half of the book is like ho-hum and the last half is like YA meets Deliverance written by a middle school boy drinking too much Red Bull. I loved to hate it.

smalldogs_bigbooks2419 What is the difference between bailing on a book and panning it? I‘ve been involved in Litsy since December or January and never understood the difference. 4mo
Eggbeater @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 Bailing means you didn't finish reading it. Panning it means you didn't like it, but you finished it. 4mo
LibrarianRyan I know her last book got the netflix treatment, but I just thought it was so-so which kept me from buying this one, so thanks for this. I will make sure it doesn't end up in my basket. 4mo

3.5🌟 I found this book creepy as I am not an outdoorsy person and camping scares and annoys me. So YMMV. The bulk of the story is camping and hiking, where so much goes wrong before anything that‘s more ‘horror story‘ actually happens. When it does get to the horror, it is such a small part of the story.
What really irked me was the abrupt ending, and the length. This book was short! It felt like a lot of set up that didn‘t totally pay off.

This book sucked. There is no other way to put it. Its suppose to be about 2 best friends, they just hurtled each other with insults the entire time. The first 130 pages is all about hiking and camping. I was like come on, get to it!! Then it finally did and how unrealistic!? I didn't believe a single thing that happened. And the moral of the story was that every man was out to get women? What? Not only is that stupid its pretentious. 0 stars.

LitStephanie LOL, I am loving reading the range of opinions on this book. Looks like a bunch of you read it together. Since it is short, I might just have to get it just to see why it provokes such strong reactions! 3mo
