Meh. The first half of the book was teenage angst. The second half was gory and unbelievable. The ending was not satisfying.

LibrarianRyan I felt that way about here first book. And the Netflix movie was worse. 9mo

Quick, creepy read, but the last 25% lets it down. The build up was good, full of well balanced tension. But then it turned towards predictable, overdone, and started bordering on torture-porn for a few scenes.

Stephanie Perkins writes books that make you want to grab the popcorn because they are like 80s horror movies. Two young women go on a hiking trip before they separate for college and something BAD happens in those woods 😳

TheKidUpstairs Her books are so much fun! I love a good creepy woodsy story, stacked! 12mo

Two besties are faced with the pending demise of their codependent friendship as college approaches & decide to go camping w/no experience. Their weekend goes from bad to worse to downright horrific. I'm a huge fan of YA horror & anything scary that takes place in the woods, so I did ultimately enjoy this book, but if you're expecting the same strength of plot as Perkins' previous book, you might be disappointed- failed to meet its full potential.

This was on my #MustReads2022 list (which is still in the works honestly). While I enjoyed this, it wasn't particularly a standout. There's no shocking twist, it's mainly all suspense. A popcorn thriller as they say, but it's no J.D. Barker. 🤷‍♀️

“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.”

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! 1y

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 1y

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! 1y
ShyBookOwl @Emilymdxn Same! I hope it's good 1y

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. 1y
Eggbeater @smalldogs_bigbooks2419 Bailing means you didn't finish reading it. Panning it means you didn't like it, but you finished it. 1y
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. 1y

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! 1y
