For all the hype this book is presently receiving, it was just okay. I figured out who the killer was early on. It's another book where I disliked everyone. Is unlikeable characters the new trend? If so, it's not working for me.
Beth, Nicole, and Michael reunite after their mother dies and discover an old video of their father (who ran off years ago) covered in blood and needing their mother's help to bury a body.

This book was about a woman who leaves her boyfriend out of the blue one morning and his quest to find her and her's to finally stop traveling.
It was okay, a really interesting premise, but I didn't really like or connect with any of the characters.

This is a weird novella. It centers around Jamie, a kid who can see the dead. The ending comes up a little short but the nodds to It and the dead lights are fun.
