Summer Sons | Lee Mandelo

RATING: 4/5

According to Oxford, characteristics of Southern Gothic include the presence of irrational, horrific, and transgressive thoughts, desires, and impulses; grotesque characters; dark humor, and an overall angst-ridden sense of alienation.⁠

This could not have been more fitting for Summer Sons.⁠

I stepped into Summer Sons expecting a coming-of-age story that would make my skin crawl.⁠

I wasn‘t wrong.⁠

Blackwood | Evan Dorkin

Mehso-so

RATING: 3/5

Chasing a walking corpse into a well, dealing with gigantic bugs, a curse that may or may not be true, and a love story that makes up for most of the confusion that's hidden between the pages.⁠

There are enough moments that stand out and enough images to make your skin crawl to make this mostly worth the read.⁠

Magic for Liars | Sarah Gailey

RATING: 5 / 5

From the moment the book started, I was hooked. We open in a library where someone is hidden among the books. A horrible crime scene, a heart-wrenching tragedy, and magic in the most mundane setting...

I couldn't put this one down and it's high on my would read again list!

🖋️ QUOTE TO LIVE BY: I broke into prom. Now it‘s time to break free.⁠

While other sophomores are interested in dating, Robin‘s convinced that she‘s just interested in her studies…⁠ And befriending Tammy Thompson.⁠

I really enjoyed this book. It hooked me from the first sentence and kept me reading until there was nothing left. ⁠ Perfect for any Stranger Things fan or anyone searching for themselves.
