The Honeys
The Honeys | Ryan La Sala
10 posts | 7 read | 9 to read
From Ryan La Sala, the wildly popular author of Reverie, comes a twisted and tantalizing horror novel set amidst the bucolic splendor of a secluded summer retreat. Mars has always been the lesser twin, the shadow to his sister Caroline's radiance. But when Caroline dies under horrific circumstances, Mars is propelled to learn all he can about his once-inseparable sister who'd grown tragically distant. Mars's genderfluidity means he's often excluded from the traditions -- and expectations -- of his politically-connected family. This includes attendance at the prestigious Aspen Conservancy Summer Academy where his sister poured so much of her time. But with his grief still fresh, he insists on attending in her place. What Mars finds is a bucolic fairytale not meant for him. Folksy charm and sun-drenched festivities camouflage old-fashioned gender roles and a toxic preparatory rigor. Mars seeks out his sister's old friends: a group of girls dubbed the Honeys, named for the beehives they maintain behind their cabin. They are beautiful and terrifying -- and Mars is certain they're connected to Caroline's death. But the longer he stays at Aspen, the more the sweet mountain breezes give way to hints of decay. Marss memories begin to falter, bleached beneath the relentless summer sun. Something is hunting him in broad daylight, toying with his mind. If Mars can't find it soon, it will eat him alive.

I absolutely loved this! It was twisted and confusing at times and I adored the main character. So unique! I think what I loved most, though, was the fact that I had absolutely no idea what was really going on…I predicted nothing correctly 🤣. I wouldn‘t necessarily say it was “scary” but it was definitely horrific at times. I‘ll need to read more from this author! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Clementines dipped in honey in honor of The Honeys.

The haunting slow burn horror novel follows Mars returning to an elite summer camp following his sister‘s death as they hope to learn more about her recent life. Cabin H, dubbed the Honeys for their apiary duties, were close with her.Mars finds there‘s things at Cabin H &Aspen even more terrifying than rich kids enforcing gender norms.

After “Reverie” I was convinced I‘d never spend time on another La Sala title, but man am I (so far) glad I—admittedly accidentally—chose to!

The theme of grief and the creeping dread meant I had to read this book only in full daylight and then switch to something else, but it was worth it. Returning to the privilege summer camp where he was bullied because he suspects it will help him understand why his sister kept going but coming back more stressed. All the joy and heartbreak of camp where connections and friendships are all operating on layers and secrets.

At #NatBookFest! Sat in on a panel with Tiffany D. Jackson and Ryan La Sala. I haven‘t read any of their works. It was a panel on the horror genre in YA. It was very interesting and they were both very funny! I may be checking out their books!

Chrissyreadit I wanted to sit in on so many panels! All the ones I‘ve done have been good. But now I want to buy all the books! 5mo
