I was a little jealous of Allegra's chance to make as much money as she does right out of school, while living in NYC, and "living the dream." But like anything, once you take a look under the surface, things are anything but a dream.
This was a pleasant middle grade read! Though the premise, strange old ghost-like creature controlling scarecrows, seems ordinary, the writing made the book.
3 stars “A wall, after all, isn’t just about keeping others out. It can also be for trapping people inside.”
Is this a haunted house book, or are its inhabitants the ones who haunt themselves? It's hard to tell.
Craven Manor was a (heartwarming?) haunted house novel.
Seed was a creepy, unnerving book on the curse of familial demonic possession.
A fantastic read that takes you on an emotional roller coaster, Everything I Never Told You is one part thriller, one part human study.
I love how the couple grows--of course, it's all cliche, he being a reserved, brooding man, and she a friendly, bubbly woman. But there's something about the two of them together that had me reading the book all day long. And of course, there's drama. And the drama really spiced things up a bit.
Confusing and meandering, I couldn't get into it, unfortunately.
Celeste Ng weaves a deft story, and it's one that's thought-provoking and has you taking the sides of different characters, only to swing back around and wonder if you're being fair in taking sides.
