*yawn* Is it naptime yet? I think I would’ve been better off sleeping, rather than spending my time reading this book. That actually makes me sad, because this sounded like such a scary, creepy story.
I’ll be honest here, and say that I didn’t have very high hopes for this book before I started based on the reviews I had read. With that considered, I decided to go against my better judgment and go ahead and give it a shot. I should’ve went with my gut, but curiosity got the best of me this time.
This book really did have potential. I did see how it could’ve been a great thriller, but unfortunately it fell short for me. I found myself not caring about the characters and started getting bored towards the end. That’s kind of not supposed to happen in a YA horror/thriller. The characters turned out to be awkward and the relationships among them were just plain strange. If they would have been a bit more developed, I could have probably connected with them a little better.
I will say this, the plot was actually alright. It’s just how the author went about executing it that made the whole thing fall apart for me. Sure, it had a few good creepy moments, but none of which were very memorable.
Not to mention, that ending was kind of lame. I finished the last page and thought to myself ”Seriously? The author couldn’t have thought of a better way to end that?” With all things considered, I was actually happy that it was finally over.
