Grab this if you’re looking for a dystopian female adventure that cuts close to the bone and has The Handmaid’s Tale vibes about it. Shines a light on our world and its stance on gender violence.
This book is an AWESOME story but my attention? Wandered off into the damn hills. Slow-burner who love witches will be all over this.
Fuck me sideways – THIS IS A BOOK YOU NEED TO READ. My emotions, my heart, my MIND all left scrambled whilst I lie in the dark trying to contemplate what just happened. I am a mess
Gaslighting on steroids in the form of a book ★★★★
This is a dark, claustrophobic and utterly depressing story of a Whistling Ridge – a small town (with an even smaller town mentality) where religion comes first
The best way to describe it is a Yakuza meets John Wick but at a Lord of the Rings pace – does exactly all the ridiculous things you expect but you’re in for the long haul ★★★½
This book is living rent-free in my head and I’m not even mad about it ★★★★★
It is incredibly clever how it’s done, extremely fucked up and, whilst I always judge a book by its cover (I love a pretty book), it’s a stark reminder to not automatically label someone because they don’t fit the mould ★★★★½
I don’t like it because it feels like it could be something that could actually happen and that freaks me out. And that’s why it got my full attention. ★★★★
What do you get if you mix a 72-year old, a film student and MURDER? This book, duh.
