Horrid was a great creepy thriller that was a perfect read for October. After the hype behind this book I was expecting to love it as much as Burn Our Bodies Down but I honestly didn’t. While it was creepy and a little spooky it wasn’t one of those that kept me up at night convinced of seeing and/or hearing things. It’s always fun to see books reference other author’s works and in this case, Jane LOVES Agatha Christie. I haven’t personally read any of her novels (I know – shameful to some) but it is something I plan on rectifying soon because I think that I will love them. Fans of her work could get a little bit more to love out of this book from that inclusion.

I rather enjoy books that include odd obsessions, illnesses, and mental health issues. This book happened to include pica – I can’t elaborate more than that other than to wonder how far back in the character’s family it goes. The human brain is spectacular and powerful but it doesn’t always work in our favor, does it? Horrid did a great job at nudging the line, more than once, on our brain’s perception of reality. I believe that books with tough subjects are worth their weight – especially to those whose current or past has included them. The topics that receive the most page space in this book are intense anger/rage, mental health/illness, grief via loss of loved ones.

It was extra fun puzzling out this book with a group of gals and seeing everyone’s opinions on what was going on. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy paranormal, mysteries, suspense/thriller, and young adult. Thank you to Owlcrate for curating all the spooky goodies for all of us book nerds and the beautiful copy of Horrid – all opinions are my own, I purchased the Owlcrate box myself. *Rounded from 3.5 stars* ( )

Series Info/Source: I got this book in my September Owlcrate. This is a stand alone book.

Story (2/5): This started out fairly promising; a small town and a creepy house with a mysterious history...it just never really went anywhere. The story was never that scary or creepy, and when secrets start to be revealed they just aren't that interesting. It was a lot of reading to get not a lot of story. The final nail in the coffin for me was the ending. All these characters are introduced and all these things finally start to happen and the book just...ends...without any resolution whatsoever.

Characters (3/5): Jane was an interesting character. I enjoyed the relationship her and her mom have and how they initially try to make the best of things. I also liked how Jane is constantly struggling with her sanity and trying to figure out what is real and what is not. The side characters were fine too; although I never really felt like I got to know any of the characters well. I also didn’t feel like there was much character growth throughout the story.

Setting (3/5): I enjoyed the setting of the creepy house that Jane and her mom move into. I could have done without all the high school drama and bullying.

Writing Style (2/5): This whole book just seemed really rambling. It tried to build up this huge mystery and the reveal fell really flat for me. I understand the ending was supposed to be a bit twisted and kind of creepy. Unfortunately, the ending made the whole book feel like a waste of time. I couldn’t figure out why I would waste my time getting to learn about this town and these characters if the story was just going to….end...like that. I seriously thought pages were missing or this was part of a series or something. It was so disappointing.

My Summary (2/5): Overall this whole story felt so unsatisfying and like such a huge waste of time. I wouldn't recommend it and I definitely won't be reading anymore of Leno's books. I got this from my Owlcrate and am really disappointed that this was their pick. The beginning was promising and I loved the creepy old house setting but in the end the big reveal and the strange ending were really lackluster. ( )

Fast read, twisty plot and what struck me at the end was the realization that there wasn't a single 'nice' character. ( )

She couldn't remember the first book she had eaten.

This book is about so many things and yet manages to be about absolutely nothing... I felt this frustration from start to finish, because looking at this structually, everything should have come together and paid off in a way that felt good, but instead to me it was just incredibly flimsy.

I loved so many aspects - the book-eating, the genius connection to the Agatha Christie book, that eerie ending, and especially Jane's battle with her uncontrollable rage which I've never seen addressed so unflinchingly before - but they didn't get handled with the justice I thought they deserved. I also hated how it would desperately try to point at its own clues and make sure I didn't miss them, when they were some pretty sloppy clues to begin with.

This author definitely has a loyal readership so maybe I'm just missing something, or the style was really not up my alley. Regardless, I know that this book is gonna be flying off shelves because of that STUNNING cover alone. ( )
