⬅️ what was the last book you read?

Little Eve by Catriona Ward!

⬅️ did this book meet your expectations?

Hm… yes AND no? I adored it, but it wasn’t as shocking as the previous two books of hers I’d read, so I was a little surprised that I was able to guess the twist (that wasn’t the case with Sundial or Needless Street). It was also “prettier” than the other two books, which isn’t a complaint at all. It wasn’t what I expected, but it was VERY good!

⬅️ will you recommend this book to others?

Absolutely! Don’t go into it expecting the same level of shocking thriller as her other books, but go into it looking for a haunting gothic cult story.

⬆️ what is your current read?

As usual, I have a whole lot of current reads, but the main one I’ve been focusing on the past few days is Rules for Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall.

⬆️ why did you pick this book?

I’d been meaning to read it for a while, and Ashley mentioned how much she’s been loving some other books by this author lately, so we decided to buddy read it!

⬆️ how much time do you think you’ll take to finish your current read?

I’d guess we’ll probably finish it today or tomorrow? Probably tomorrow for me, at least, because I have some other buddy reads I need to catch up on. This book goes by FAST and has us both totally hooked!

➡️ what genre would you like to read next?

True crime or horror! I’m really feeling the creepy reads lately (well, all year, since horror has been my most-read genre so far in 2022).

➡️ what would you like to pick: a long read or a short read?

Medium, I guess? I’m reading some THICK books right now and wouldn’t mind some shorter books, but I haven’t been reaching for novellas as often as I usually do lately, either.

➡️ mention some books you’re eyeing!

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, Bound Feet, or The United States of Cryptids!

    Rules for Vanishing was a weird book. I liked it, but it wasn’t a new favourite. I am very excited for Kate Alice Marshall’s new book though!
