My favourite thing about this book is the cover. Everything else was mediocre and boring. 🫣

2.5 stars rounded up to 3 for some truly scary and gruesome scenes.
This story was definitely giving off some serious "A Nightmare on Elm Street" vibes almost to the point where I thought "Does the estate of Wes Craven have grounds to sue?"
This story about a myth that comes to life to stalk the all-girls high school basketball team has way too much basketball, clunky writing and a storyline that didn‘t fully make sense.
P.S. I hate basketball.

I enjoyed this YA #Slasher #Horror well enough. I can see why people are loving this, but personally, I didn‘t connect with any of the characters. Maybe I‘m too old to connect with the teens? Maybe I don‘t hate teens enough to connect with the baddies? IDK, but this was a so-so read for me. There was only one moment that had me cheering. Though bloody, the chill factor is low. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Maybe slashers just aren‘t the horror sub genre for me? #NSR22

Bailing on this about half way through, I‘m just not enjoying it even though I like the concept.

This is both not what I hoped it would be, AND a perfect example of where the Final Girl trope has ended up /evolved to. The genre is trying so hard to outsmart itself that I'm left unsure of who to root for, who the villain is. I suppose I'm naive, I prefer a clearer good vs evil vibe from this subgenre, and at LEAST one sympathetic, if complex survivor.

I‘ve seen mixed reviews for this. I actually liked it. I thought the story was decent, it kept me interested, and it was pretty fast paced so it ended up being a quick read for me.

I read this for #TeamMonsterMash and #scarathlon2022. Glad I read it but not one I would normally pick up. I think they‘d do fine with about two fewer characters to keep track of. There is a twist at the end.

StayCurious did you figure out the twist in advance? 3mo
Bookishgal71 I thought there was a twist, but I did not see this one coming. Did you?

StayCurious @Bookishgal71 yes and I was so proud of myself hahah 3mo

A group of teenagers are working in a short film and this will be part of the project for Alex to enter to college. There is a possibility to travel to Romania to make the film and a fundraising is open to help with film costs. In Romania various murders occurred and everything is confused. Which parts are related with the real world which parts are related with the film? Surprised, didn‘t expect those twits. ⬇️

#Scarathlon2022

Finished earlier in the week for #TeamMonsterMash I think it suffered as a section a day #buddyread & picked up at the end when I read it all at once. As some of the others, I had the big twist figured out & found most of the characters annoying so just a so-so for me.

As team buddy read, it gets me 50 points & about 247 #ScararthlonWordSearch points (I may have missed a few) + an extra 15 for a #ScarathlonDailyPrompts bonus ⬇️

DebinHawaii … and part or all counted in the readathons & bingos below:
